The Impact of Glass Counters on Your Interior Design

Transparent counter surfaces

There are many beneficial changes you can make to your home’s interior design. Although you would think counters would rank low, you would be surprised! 

Here are the positives you can expect by upgrading your kitchen with glass counters.

Cleaner Space

How many germs and bacteria are lingering in the hidden crevices of your kitchen? You probably don’t want to know, but the next time you’re feeling under the weather, you’d have an inkling as to why!

Glass doesn’t allow the same particles to stick around, passing germs from family member to family member and causing frequent illnesses. As a nonporous material, germs don’t stand a chance on glass.

That makes it the ideal kitchen countertop material. You can wipe down your glass counters after a long day or even once a week (depending on how regularly you use them) and rest assured knowing your kitchen is cleaner and your family is safer. 

No Staining

No matter how appealing your current kitchen cabinet materials, that can all come toppling down in a moment if you stain it. After all, stains don’t always come out of some materials, leaving you in a bad position. 

Stains are likelier to happen in the kitchen, and if your counters stain easily, it won’t be too long before they’re covered in so many messes that you barely recognize your original counters anymore. 

Glass counters are a better choice because they never stain. That’s another perk of their nonporousness. You can spill wine, cooking oil, and animal fat, and it wipes right off. 

Better Longevity

Glass ranks well on the Mohs scale, making it harder than steel. It’s not shatterproof but will hold up to everyday kitchen use, including high heat. While it depends on the type of glass, it can generally withstand temperatures between 482 and 662 degrees Fahrenheit or 250 and 350 degrees Celsius. 

All this makes glass a strong contender for your next kitchen counters. You can feel confident that your investment now will last for years, allowing you to enjoy a high-quality, gorgeous kitchen for a long time. 

Versatile Design 

You can think of glass as a blank palette, a ball of clay ready to be molded. It can become anything you want it to be depending on what your design vision is. At CBD Glass, a glass accent company based in Toronto, we can build your glass counters in any shape, size, and color.

We can add luxe features like glass texturing, backpainting (which lends color to the glass), LED lighting, and edge banding to take your glass counter to the next level. 

Higher Curb Appeal

Given the many benefits of glass, it should be no surprise that it can make your home’s curb appeal shoot way up. If you ever decide to sell, you could do so knowing your home would fetch a pretty penny more than it did before you added glass counters
