With its translucent beauty, a glass surface leaves a distinct impression when it is used in any area, including the kitchen.
Much to many people's surprise, glass countertops come in a variety of textures and colors. Many surfaces are embedded with materials that allow for a mix of browns, blues, greens and other colors that suit your kitchen color palette.
Other countertops are made from recycled glass. Recycled glass is not only an eco-friendly option, but it can be made to emulate granite countertops, using a mix of colored glass pieces. Recycled glass countertops are available in tiles, concrete and resin, depending on the material that will best suit your kitchen area. Glass countertop tiles are a good option if you are seeking a do-it-yourself option that will add a bit of flair to your current countertop.
Keep in mind that no matter the glass countertop you choose, it can be pricey. If budget is a concern, then consider using a glass countertop in conjunction with another surface. This will make the glass countertop an accent rather than a material that is used throughout the kitchen.
For a budget-conscious kitchen countertop, consider painting over your current surface for a fresh, cost-efficient option.
