Mill's Pride Cabinet Question


A few years back, I installed Mill's Pride Premier cabinets in my kitchen (the ones that come already assembled). Mine seem to be in a wood color they still make (light oak) but I regret not getting any glass front doors for some of the overhead cabinets.
Could I not just buy new doors in the same color and size and swap them out? I actually prefer frosted glass, but don't think they make it.
Maybe a stupid question, but I am not an expert in these things. My hope is it would be an inexpensive upgrade for my kitchen.
Thanks!

If the company makes glass doors, there's a chance the screw holes for the hinges might match up exactly, and changing the doors would be a breeze. Have you checked the company's web site, or called them?

There is a spray on glass frost you can get that works well, just spray the back of the glass. I think it's a Krylon product. You can also remove it later if you want which is nice.

Most of these things are machine made to be very consistent with screw locations. They would probably be a perfect match.
Be sure to save the older door so when you get tired of looking at clutter in the cabinet you can swap them back.

Forgive what may be a stupid question, but why do you want glass doors, but then frost them? Isn't the point of having glass doors to see what's inside the cabinets? At least, it was for me. Tho' I could understand a partial frosting where there's some sort of pattern to it of non-frosted glass...

The glass cabinets are only good if you don't have any kitchen items that have bright colors...like if you have a red mixing bowl that doesn't match anything, for example.
But, if you have all glass kitchen items in your upper cabinets, it would look very nice, and you could backlight it easily enough using flourescents as long as you had a power source nearby (it's overhead, so you do) base cabinets are a bit tougher.
Sounds like a neat project, let me know what you find out! And post some before and after pictures for the rest of us home.repair'ers.
