What Is a Glass Counter?

Your current countertops have got to go. Whether they’re made of a rather outdated material such as Formica, they’re stained from years of use, or they’re chipped and scratched, you’re quite eager for something new.

Your neighbor just got glass countertops installed, and they can’t stop raving about how nice their kitchen looks. That has you wondering if glass could be the right solution for your kitchen or bathroom as well, but you’d like more information before you make up your mind. What exactly is a glass countertop anyway?

A glass counter is any countertop surface that’s either made with glass or topped with a layer of glass. For instance, in your kitchen, you might get a new set of countertops installed with a glass surface. You can do the same for a kitchen island as well as your bathroom.

In your home bar, you could opt to get a preexisting surface such as a bar top covered with glass. You can also take any home or coffee table you own and liven them up with a layer of glass in much the same fashion.

At CBD Glass in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, we create custom-made glass accent items, including glass counters. In letting our customers have a say in the design of their accent items, you too have the freedom to choose every last element of your glass counter.

For instance, you can start by selecting the type of thickness you want. For a kitchen or bathroom counter that’s going to get the most use, you’d want two-inch glass. This is the most durable glass available from our staff at CBD. Your kitchen island or glass bar top doesn’t need glass as thick, so you might choose 1 ½-inch thick glass instead.

Besides the glass thickness, you can also pick the texturing and color of your glass counter. Texturing is a unique service through our CBD team that enriches the glass with gorgeous etching. Through our texturing work, we can make your glass counter look like a raging river, melting ice, or the middle of a calm galaxy. It’s all up to you!

Our backpainting service imparts stunning color to your glass countertop. Whether you want a single color or a combination of hues, we can do either. You can select from neutrals, pastels, bright hues, metallics, and everything in between.

Before you finalize your order, you also have the option to get LED lights installed. This strongly illuminant lighting can bring out every last nook and cranny of your glass texturing and augment the colors of backpainted glass. You might choose pure white LEDs or those in colors like red, blue, or green.
