Glass Kitchen Countertops
Infuse your kitchen the lightest and brightest surface around: a colorful but opaque glass kitchen countertop.
Create a sense of drama while adding a healthy dose of elegance to the kitchen with glass or recycled glass kitchen countertops.
Benefits of Glass Countertops
Glass countertops are as equally durable and as easy to maintain as stone countertops. Glass countertops are also heat-, stain-, and scratch-resistant.
Cost of Glass Countertops
Glass countertops cost about the same per square foot as granite, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). According to the NKBA glass countertops cost $3,700, on average, or $45 to $135 per square foot.
How to Style Glass Countertops
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.
