Are Glass Countertops Dangerous?

Whether it’s kids or pets in the house you’re worried about, whenever you make an addition to your home, safety is always at the forefront. You triple-check that a new renovation will not only improve your home’s aesthetics but will prevent injuries to your family as well.

You know you need a new countertop sooner than later, and one of the materials you’ve seriously considered is glass. Then again, glass is so breakable, isn’t it? You would hate for anyone to hurt themselves while trying to prep breakfast or dinner. You can’t help but wonder then, are glass countertops dangerous?

There are two areas that may have you concerned about a glass countertop for the home. The first of these would be pointed, sharp edges. While we can’t speak for all the other glass countertops out there, when you get yours from our staff at CBD Glass, you have the ability to customize every last aspect of it.

Yes, that includes the overall shape and the edges of your glass countertop. If you want a circular countertop, we’d be happy to discuss your project with you. This would have no pointy edges to worry about.

Since we know that you care about the looks of your countertop as well, we think you’ll quite like the texturing and edgework our CBD team offers. You can choose from a variety of textures of all kinds that will decorate your countertop. This not only makes your kitchen addition more unique, but it adds undoubted visual appeal as well.

Okay, so you know that pointy corners won’t be an issue with a glass countertop, but what about the potential for the countertop cracking? We won’t say glass never cracks, because it certainly can happen. That said, you would have to put a lot of pressure on the countertop for cracking to occur. If you were to drop something heavy on the countertop, that could also cause chips or cracks, as could misusing this glass accent piece.

If thicker glass would make you feel more comfortable proceeding with a glass countertop, then talk to our team at CBD. We offer a variety of glass thicknesses, including over an inch thick, sure to make your countertop sustainable and durable.
