But it is also important to choose the right glassware to help make your cabinet as stylish as possible! Choose glasses that complement the style of your cabinet and arrange them neatly on the shelves. If you don't have enough space in your cabinet for all your glassware, an option could be to hang some off the walls with hooks.
