The Pros and Cons of Glass Countertops

If you’re considering installing glass countertops in your home, you may be wondering what the benefits and drawbacks are. Any countertop material has both pros and cons, and it’s important to consider both before making a decision. Here are some of the pros and cons of glass countertops:

  • Versatile
    Glass countertops are incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into any kitchen design. They’re available in various styles, colors, and textures. Because glass can be shaped and formed in many different textures and designs, you can create any look that you’d like.
  • Durable
    There’s no need to worry about visible wear or discoloration on glass countertops. They’re also incredibly heat resistant, so you can place hot pots and pans directly on the surface, unlike other metal or stone countertops. Glass countertops are also stain-resistant and low maintenance.
  • Affordable and eco-friendly
    Because glass is a widely available resource, tempered glass countertops are often cheaper than their stone counterparts. Some glass countertops are even made from recycled materials, which is an excellent option if you want to be more eco-friendly.


  • Shows fingerprints
    Some glass countertop surfaces show fingerprints easier than others. If this is a concern for you, let us know, and we can help you choose a material that is more resistant to fingerprints during the design process.
  • Not completely damage-proof
    Like many other types of countertop materials, glass is not completely damage-proof. Heavy or even sharp objects can cause the countertop to chip or crack.

Tempered Glass Countertops

These countertops are made through a process called tempering. During this process, the glass is uniformly heated and rapidly cooled. Because it’s done in an environment with controlled heat and pressure, the glass becomes five times stronger than non-tempered glass. It’s durable and an excellent choice for countertops.
