When Should You Consider Replacing Your Old Countertop with a Glass One

Your kitchen or bathroom counters have been a sore spot for a while, but you haven’t yet had the budget to replace them. That’s finally beginning to change, so you’re contemplating whether now is a good time to make the switch.

Here are six signs you need new countertops.

Your Countertops Look Outdated

Do you have Formica counters or another material that instantly dates your kitchen or bathroom? No matter what other modern furniture and fixtures you select for the room, the counters will always drag it down.

Updating your countertops to glass will instantly elevate the look of the room and modernize it. You won’t believe it’s the same bathroom or kitchen!

Your Countertops Are in Poor Shape

What’s the status of your current counters? Are they chipped, scuffed, and in otherwise poor shape? Do they look like they’ve been put through the wringer? Even if you chose an appealing counter material to start (or the previous owner did), years of use, time, and wear and tear might have worn the counters out.

Glass counters don’t show wear in the same way, so they will not look poor several years from now. You must still care for your counters, but you will be impressed by their longevity.

You Spend Way Too Long Cleaning Your Counters

It seems like you’re always cleaning your counters, especially in the kitchen. You turn around, and the next day, they’re dirty again. This can suck up hours of your time per week that you could use on other household jobs, spending time with your family, or relaxing.

Glass counters clean up so easily, it’s almost criminal. Use mild dish soap and water, a soft microfiber cloth, and all messes will instantly lift and vanish. Dry the glass in one direction to prevent streaks, and you’re finished.

Yes, it’s really that simple, fast, and effortless.

Your Counters Are Stained or Discolored

Another time to consider upgrading to glass counters is if time has left your counters dingy and stained. Perhaps it’s sun fading, age that made them yellow, or one too many spills, but your counters are noticeably discolored or stained.

You won’t have the same issue with a glass kitchen or bathroom counter. Glass doesn’t stain, so you don’t have to stress as hard when you spill. Clean up fast, and the mess is gone. It’s like it never happened.

Your Counters Are Making You Sick

No, we don’t mean this figuratively but literally. Many countertop materials can harbor germs and bacteria in their pores. Not glass! It’s nonporous, so it doesn’t absorb germs and viruses the same way.

As a result, you’ll be healthier whenever you use your kitchen or bathroom.
