If you are thinking of updating your current kitchen surfaces, or are designing a whole new kitchen. Then you will have a choice of different materials for your work surfaces. Not many people consider glass as an option for their kitchen. However, there are a number of reasons why glass could be the right choice for your worktops.
What Are the Advantages of a Glass Worktop?
One of the main benefits of glass worktops is that they can be manufactured to the exact size and shape required. This is especially useful if you are updating your current kitchen. The glass can be cut bespoke to what you need. It is possible to cut round sinks, hobs, cookers or taps which are currently in place. Something which could become a problem with some other materials. It is also possible to add drainage grooves to the glass for use next to the sink.
Glass worktops are also hard wearing. The glass worktops supplied by Colour2Glass are heat resistant up to 400°C. This means they are suitable to use next to a heat source such as a hob. Not only are they resistant to everyday use. But because of the process involved in making them, the coloured or printed design will not fade for 10 years.
A further reason for choosing a glass worktop is that they are hygienic. Not only does the make up of them mean it is more difficult for stains to collect on the surface of the glass. But they are also easy to clean. You can keep the glass clean using everyday cleaning items. If your looking for more information on how to keep your glass clean, you can read our guide here.
Making the Kitchen Your Own
Possibly the biggest advantage of a glass worktop, is the chance to get the exact look you are after for your new kitchen. Even with a basic colour they are a great way to get a modern, stylish look. But once you start thinking a little deeper about the design you want. You can make a real statement with your worktops.
Glass worktops from Colour2Glass can be printed in any colour or with any design. One of the reasons why they are currently so popular. If you are simply updating your kitchen they can be matched exactly to the current colour scheme. We can even colour match to the leading brands. Such as, Dulux, RAL, Farrow & Ball, and Laura Ashley.
Or, if you could go the opposite direction and get something completely different. You could go for a contrasting colour, or a printed design to make your worktops really stand out. We are able to print almost any design to the glass. The image will be printed on to the reverse in order to protect the design. Ensure you provide the full details of the kitchen when providing the design. This means we can use our experience to fit the image to the glass to give the best possible results.
