Glass is known for its eye-catching, translucent beauty, and is as durable as most other countertop materials. Because of its price and distinctive look, designers suggest using it as an accent countertop, rather than throughout the kitchen. Glass countertops can be imbedded with a variety of textures and colors. Recycled glass countertops are an eco-friendly option.

Design Tip:To create a beautiful breakfast bar, cantilever a piece of glass out of a central island.
