Equally as durable (glass counters are heat-, stain-, and scratch-resistant) and as easy to maintain as stone countertops, glass countertops cost about the same per square foot as granite, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).

Whether the glass is translucent or colored, smooth, or embedded with texture, homeowners can combine glass countertops with other elements in the kitchen to make a big statement—think lighting installed beneath the counter for a backlit feel, or glass infused with bright color (aqua, turquoise and other shades of blue are popular shades) for an added artistic touch.

Like other surfaces, glass kitchen countertops can be custom-designed to your specifications—without seams, with a contemporary finish, or used as an accent, such as as a raised breakfast bar on an island. The benefit of glass is that the look is light-and-bright, airy and contemporary—a very different look from cold, hard stone surfaces.
