Are glass worktops really a good idea?

It might come as a surprise to some people that glass kitchen worktops are actually available on the market at all!. Although glass might not be the most obvious choice for a worktop, it can offer a very unique look. As much as these worktops might seem like an edgy, more niche choice, the range of colours and finishes available is on the increase opening it up to a wider range of tastes.

What are the benefits of a glass worktop?

Glass is dense, strong and non porous making it an extremely low maintenance material. Its non porous nature makes it a hygienic choice for families and can be kept clean with just a damp cloth. It won’t dent like some other materials, such as stainless steel, however a chopping board is recommended to avoid any surface scratches.

A glass worktop also won’t stain as easily as many other worktop materials, which means harsh cleaners and chemicals can be avoided. It is highly resistant to heat, so although it would be recommended to use a trivet or board, if you did place a hot pan directly onto the glass, it shouldn’t then suffer any damage.

Glass is a flexible material, meaning that worktops can easily be shaped to fit your kitchen, even if it is an usual shape. Other materials can be more difficult to mould but glass can be fabricated to have round edges to fit in more with family life. The reflective and light diffusing surface can lighten darker spaces and make smaller spaces feel larger.
