Recycled Glass Countertops vs. Glass Countertops

Another one of our specialties here at CBD Glass is our custom glass countertops. Glass countertops come in a wide array of textures and colors. Many surfaces are ingrained with materials that allow for a blend of browns, blues, greens and other colors that suit your kitchen color palette. The glass can also be translucent, colored, smooth or embedded with texture based on your preference.

You also have the option of combining glass countertops with other elements in the kitchen. For example, installing lights beneath the counter for a back lit feel or infusing the glass with bright color for an added artistic touch.


Glass kitchen countertops can also be custom-designed to your specifications. This customization is what allows you to get creative and construct that dream kitchen you’ve always wanted. Another great benefit of glass is that it has a bright and airy feel as opposed to a conventional cold, hard stone surface.

Glass countertops not only look great but they are also very durable. The glass is heat, scratch, and stain resistant. This makes maintenance as easy as stone countertops like granite.


Glass countertops can also be made from recycled glass. Recycled glass countertops come in two different forms. One way they are created is by using an array of recycled products like old glass bottles, windows, and light bulbs.


Another way recycled glass countertops are made is from glass that is either defective or chipped. The glass is then precisely cut and shaped using a water jet. The water jet is a machine that allows for precise cutting and shaping that simply is not possible with traditional, handcrafting techniques.

Recycled glass countertops are fairly easy to maintain. Some recycled glass products need no care and some require the same maintenance as granite. It’s always important to check with the distributor to identify the most efficient way to care for recycled glass counters.
