Beyond granite – glass countertops offer clear choice
March 31, 2010
If you’re seeking a clear alternative to granite as a countertop surface, the glass is more than half full — it’s overflowing with creative possibilities, in fact — thanks to the aesthetic advantages and practical flexibility offered by thermoformed glass.Created via a special process that uses extreme heat to mold flat objects, thermoformed glass is rigid and strong, heat, scratch and stain resilient, highly reflective of light, and available in an amazing range of colors, textures and even shapes. It’s the ideal option if you desire both a clean, modern look in the bath or kitchen and an alternative to granite and other solid surface countertops.
