The Next-Generation Recycled Glass Countertops

Why Recycled Glass for Your Countertops?

Recycled glass countertops are a great alternative to traditional countertops, offering a new twist both on material and style. If traditional countertop materials such as granite, laminate, or solid surface don’t seem interesting to you, the beautiful, sustainable and eco-friendly recycled glass countertops are worth to consider.

Recycled glass countertops offer great customization in terms of a wide range of glass chips available, which are used in countertops manufacturing. Colors can be specified and mixed with a binder to develop custom made countertops beautifully complementing your kitchen and bath décor.

Made from recycled glass, these countertops are eco-friendly and popular for their unique appearance that fits well in a range of designs. Based on the glass used, the recycled glass countertops deliver contemporary and an antique look, while being very easy to maintain.

What Are Recycled Glass Countertops?

Recycled glass countertops are available in various forms. Most of the products in this category are the blend of crushed glass i.e. glass chips and a binder material. The recycled glass countertops are made up of 80% post-consumer glass, which comes from both domestic and commercial sources. Terrazzo or the “chip-based” surfaces are more popular because of an unusual look and an endless variety in terms of colors and designs. However, countertops that are solid, homogeneous pieces of glass, looking like regular glass countertops, are also available.

Price of Recycled Glass Countertops

The average prices of recycled glass countertops range from $40 to $100, per square foot. The cost is subject to change based on the brand, size of glass chips used and exclusivity of colors.

Glass Countertops are Durable!

The recycled glass countertops are not just durable but resist heat and staining, due to their non-porous surface. These countertops don’t burn, melt or scorch and offer almost same durability as that of quartz. The binder is extremely hard, making countertops highly resistant to cracking and chipping. Moreover, these are very easy to clean and maintain.

Recycled Glass Countertops Versus Granite

  • Recycled countertops are a popular choice among homeowners because these are eco-friendly products, unlike granite countertops. Recycled countertops are made from 80% of recycled glass, keeping the material out of landfills. Recycled glass countertops are also recyclable, a feature missing in granite countertops.
  • Recycled glass is developed in a wider range of colors, while granite offers limited color choices. In terms of appearance, recycled glass offers more options due to the various sizes of glass particles and pieces used in the manufacturing process.
  • Unlike granite, most of the recycled glass countertops don’t require periodic sealing due to their non-porous nature.
  • The average cost of recycled glass countertops is around $40 to $100 per square foot, making it more affordable than that of granite, having cost $45 to $120 per square foot, based on the quality.

Recycled Glass Countertops Give a Creative Flair to Your Kitchens & Bathrooms

Each recycled glass countertop is an exclusive creation, implying that no two pieces are identical. Homeowners have a range of countertops options to choose from in terms of design, colors, and sizes of glass pieces. Even the recycled glass tiles are all different from one another, enabling homeowners to easily create their desired custom look. Recycled glass countertops add a great appeal in a special way to your kitchens and a creative flair in bathroom vanities. Homeowners, who are committed to an eco-friendly lifestyle, generally prefer recycled glass countertops over others.

The binding material of the countertops is hard enough to make them ultra-durable, resistant to staining and heat, and least vulnerable to chipping and cracking. The non-porous nature enables easy cleaning and maintenance.

Tip: Binders can be either cement based or resin based. Cement based countertops are slightly porous and may require periodic sealing for maintenance, while resin based countertops are non-porous and require minimal cleaning.
