Going Green with Recycled Glass Countertops



Glass Countertops

If you are considering a kitchen or bathroom remodel, this is the perfect time to consider green products. Green products are generally things made from recycled material, though this is not always the case.

When it comes to a kitchen or bathroom remodeling project, one of your biggest expenses will probably be the counter tops. Recycled glass countertops offer the perfect way to add beauty to your kitchen or bathroom. There is a large variety of types and looks to choose from when it comes to recycled glass countertops, it depends on what recycled materials are used to make them. The best advice that I can give you is to take the time to look around and see what options are available.

Recycled glass countertops that are made of 100% glass offer a shimmering almost opaque look to your counters and can often be found in several color ranges. They can be found in almost a solid color, but with the look of internal bubbles or waves in them to add interest to your room.

Recycled glass countertops made by mixing concrete in with the glass offer a look similar to granite. One of the benefits of these counters is that the base or concrete can be shaded to better match the color scheme of your room.

Another option is a mixture that contains recycled paper, coal fly ash and crushed glass. These are mixed with low carbon cement. This may sound like a strange mixture to have in your countertops, but the results are a beautiful countertop that has the look of soapstone or limestone.

There is also a terrazzo style of recycled glass countertop mad by mixing recycled marble, granite chips, and glass. This type of countertops offers almost a mosaic effect. For some people terrazzo counters might be too much color or pattern, many people seem to prefer using more of a solid color for the counters and a pattern for the backsplash.

These are just a few of the options on the market today that offer an eco-friendly option when remodeling or building a home. Many of these can also be bought as tiles that can be used for backsplashes or tub and shower surrounds. One of the benefits to these recycled products is that there is no special sealing or cleaning supplies needed. They can be washed off with simple soap and water and are non-porous so there is no fear of bacteria building up on surfaces.

As you can see recycled glass countertops offers you a safe and green option, while still giving you the chance to personalize your home. What could be better than helping the environment and making your home more beautiful at the same time?
