Recycled glass countertops are made primarily from recycled glass and pigments. The mixture is bonded together Portland cement to form a tough, durable and beautiful surface that’s suitable for use in the bathroom or kitchen. A recycled glass countertop looks similar to terrazzo tile.
Recycled glass countertops are heat-resistant. The counter surface is exceptionally smooth and can be dyed to match any décor. Better still, the surface requires very little maintenance, and unlike some stone materials, a glass countertop does not need to be sealed or waxed for protection.
Being able to keep a surface clean is important to health and safety, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Recycled glass countertops are impervious, so they will not absorb liquids, bacteria or viruses. They’re also rated for both commercial and residential use and cut to any shape or size.
Recycled glass countertops paired with glass surfaces like glass backsplashes create an amazing classic look in a kitchen. Glass backsplashes are easy to create, and can be painted in any color using Glassprimer glass paint. Glassprimer glass paint is specially engineered to bond permanently with glass.
Backpainted glass is safe for use in the kitchen. You can use ordinary flat glass or tempered glass. If you intend to create a backpainted splash for use around the stove, you’ll want to use tempered glass. If your backsplash won’t come into contact with a source of significant heat, you can use ordinary flat glass.
Backpainted glass is easy to make, and you can get excellent coverage for about $1 per square foot. If you don’t want to use glass, you can also create a glass effect using Plexiglas. Glassprimer glass paint will bond with Plexiglas and weighs significantly less than glass. Plexiglas is an ideal covering for cabinet fronts, where the extra weight of glass may not be easily supportable.
