Are Glass Kitchen Countertops Practical?

It might seem that glass is not the most practical of materials for your kitchen, but you may be surprised at just how durable it can be. Glass is stain-resistant and can bear a good amount of weight. Bacteria can't find places to hide on a sheet of glass, so glass countertops are very hygienic.

On the downside, glass countertops can break. Since they are cut usually in one large piece, replacement needs can be challenging. They are also difficult to keep pristine, as tiny bits of moisture and fingerprints may lead to spotting.

Why Choose Glass Kitchen Countertops?

There are many reasons to choose glass kitchen countertops for your renovation or home building project. Here are just a few:

  • Quarries that pull granite, quartz, and other materials from the ground are environmentally destructive. By opting for glass, you are choosing a process that is easier on Mother Nature.
  • Eco-friendly glass kitchen countertops might qualify for tax incentives, as well as credits toward LEED certification.
  • Glass countertops, or even blended glass with concrete, is a great way to re-purpose a product that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
  • Glass kitchen countertops are unique. If you want a true conversation starter, glass countertops are the way to begin the renovation conversation.
