Glass countertops have grown in popularity over the years because they add a contemporary and sleek look to any room. Here are some of the most common questions about glass countertops.
This is one of the most common questions when it comes to using glass as a countertop. There are a couple elements to consider when it comes maintaining a clean look for your glass:
One of the beautiful aspects of glass is its transparency, but this also means it won’t conceal clutter. To take advantage of the beauty of glass but also not see drawers beneath is done so by attaching a substrate. The most common are stainless steel and aluminum. By adding a substrate light will still create a dramatic look when it hits the glass and no one will see the mess in your drawers.
Generally glass countertops are more expensive than granite, but they can also be coupled together. The price is dependent on thickness and the type of glass. Solid float glass or cast glass can range from $160 to $300.
The larger and more complex the glass is usually requires a natural stone fabricator to install the glass. If you’re a DIY’ er then stick to smaller glass projects like installing a bathroom vanity countertop.
Glass is one of the easiest materials to clean because it has a non-porous surface. A washcloth works well or any surface cleaner.
Here are the options for glass countertops:
With all the variations that come with glass it can often become an art piece. Light can amplify the beauty of the piece and add a dramatic flair. You can do this by adding LED lights through a side or in between the substrate and glass if there isn’t a wall to mount the lighting.
Glass has been such a popular countertop option because it is versatile and can fit any look. It can accommodate many styles like contemporary or artistic.
You know what it feels like to be treated badly as a customer. You feel like a number…a nameless, faceless commodity awash in a sea of others just like you.
