If you haven’t heard yet, glass kitchen countertops are the latest trend in high-end kitchen decor. If you are considering remodeling your kitchen or designing a new kitchen for a new home, you would do well to consider a glass for your countertop material. Glass kitchen countertops are relatively modern type of kitchen countertops that may not be as ubiquitous or popular as the other types of kitchen countertops that include materials like marble, granite and wood. Even though a glass countertop is not as common, it does have some befits, in addition to certain disadvantages. Some of the advantages include good aesthetics and better health qualities, while the disadvantages include high costs and eventual degradation. One of the advantages of a glass countertop is the fact that it is quite stylish and can blend in perfectly with modern designs, even lending the kitchen a sort of futuristic appeal by its mere presence. A reason for its appeal is the ability to adapt itself to any type of design, including different choices of colors, tints and texture.
Some people might find this sort of versatility appealing and may choose to opt for a glass kitchen countertop based on this attribute. On the other hand, this sort of versatility also often comes at a dear price, mainly because such specific designs and colors are usually custom-made to fit in with the tone of the décor in a home, particularly in the kitchen. This contributes to the more expensive price of glass kitchen countertops in comparison to wood, ceramic, laminate or other cheaper materials.
