Trend Alert: Glass Door Refrigerators Are the New Stainless Steel

Kitchen with White Cabinetry and Wood Trim

If you're looking for a way to freshen up your kitchen, keep an eye out for the latest kitchen trend: glass door refrigerators. They're hot in Europe, which means the trend should be landing stateside shortly. Brands like Balay, GE, SubZero and Fisher & Paykel all have a version of a glass panel refrigerator available.

The pros

Why should you swap out your stainless or color refrigerator for one with glass panel doors? Durability. Compared to metals like stainless steel, glass door refrigerators don't dent or scratch as easily, especially if you use a soft towel or gentle glass cleaners. Their sheen makes them look brand new for years to come. Glass door refrigerators come in a variety of glass panel styles ranging from high-gloss colored glass to frosted glass to stainless steel doors with a clear glass window insert.

The cons

Glass door refrigerators tend to show fingerprints easily, much like stainless steel fridges. And if you choose to go with a clear glass panel door, be prepared to be ultra-organized, since refrigerator contents will be easily seen, even with the door closed.

Now that we've weighed out the pros and cons, check out these 20 kitchens featuring glass door refrigerators.
