Recycled glass kitchen countertops can be a lovely addition to any home, providing a unique look that cannot be matched by any other material.  Never heard of recycled glass kitchen countertops?  Well, neither have many other homeowners across the nation, but with the push for homes and businesses to become more “green”, recycled glass kitchen countertops are becoming more and more popular each year.

So what are recycled glass kitchen countertops?  These countertops are created by imbedding recycled glass into a concrete countertop form to create a countertop that is both strong and unique in its appearance.  The surface of the countertop will display thousands of bits of recycled glass in many colors and hues that reflect the light and shine brightly to create a beautiful focal point for the kitchen area.  The countertops are as strong as stone and are built to last for many, many years.

There are a number of different manufacturers that create recycled glass kitchen countertops for installation in the home.  The manufacturers will often have several different varieties of countertops to choose from and have the ability to create a custom countertop for homeowners that cannot find a pattern that they really like for their home.  Often, these manufacturers include the price of installing the countertop into the price of the countertop and use their own personnel to install the countertop in the home correctly.

Recycled glass kitchen countertops can be created in many different colors and styles to appeal to a wide range of homeowners.  The glass used for the countertop can be many different colors or several different shades of the same color to provide the look that the homeowner desires.  Because the countertops are created brand new, they can be manufactured in any shape or size that is needed, as long as the dimensions are provided to the manufacturer in advance of production.

Recycled glass kitchen countertops are sealed with a thick layer of clear sealant that protects the countertop surface from damage and protects the homeowner from the sharp shards of glass imbedded in the countertop surface.  It is best to reseal the countertop with clear sealant every few years to keep the countertop protected from outside elements and to keep the countertop looking new.  The sealant can be applied by a professional contractor for a nominal fee or by the homeowner as a do it yourself project for a fraction of the cost.
