If you’ve ever designed or are designing an outdoor kitchen, there’s a good chance you have or plan to install granite countertops. That’s been the most common option and a de facto industry standard for years. But have you ever thought about installing glass? If not, you should; glass is not only durable, easy to clean and economical, but the color and design options will make it a focal point for your outdoor entertaining. Let’s discuss these benefits in greater detail.
Glass countertops are available in thicknesses of 1 ½” to 4” making it a superior and durable surface to handle the demands of outdoor living. Plus, glass won’t fade in the sunlight. Prolonged exposure to rain, wind or the elements won’t damage the glass or change its appearance.
Keeping countertops clean is important in any kitchen, and outdoor kitchens are no exception. Glass countertops are among the most hygienic surfaces because they are impervious to bacteria, dirt and grime. Plus, they are easily cleaned with a wide variety of products, which are antibacterial, as well as safe for food preparation.
The options are practically endless for designing a glass countertop. You can opt for natural glass with a variety of textures or add color to the glass creating truly unique countertops. Try a single hue or mix multiple colors for a beautiful custom design. For a true show-stopper, incorporate LED lighting beneath your glass countertop for stunning effects. Imagine family and friends gathered outside for a backyard barbeque while entertaining from your amazing outdoor kitchen. A glass countertop is sure to be the focal point.
