White Glass Countertops
Downing Designs White Glass Countertops are increasingly popular in Contemporary and Modern kitchen designs. The reasons are simple. They are by far the Whitest, strongest, most stain-proof, UV-proof, cigarette and hot pan-proof, hair dye-proof, solvent-proof, acid-proof material we have ever seen. High-end restaurants such as American Social and ULELE in Tampa have discovered its rugged, modern, gorgeous characteristics. For outdoor kitchens, it is the perfect material because it is 100% inorganic unlike Quartz (man-made) which has a plastic resin binder that will yellow outdoors. White glass also stays very cool to the touch (96 degrees on a 93 degree day) in direct Florida sunlight! It commands a small premium to quartz countertops because it is a much harder material to fabricate and polish.The biggest benefit is the pure white color expands any kitchen or bath room dimension by about 25-33% larger. This creates great value for the consumer as we live in an era where home prices and countertops are measured in dollars per sq ft. Therefore, increasing the visual volume of your kitchen or bath is valuable when assessing your remodeling costs. From a purely design perspective, the unbelievable strength of white glass allows you to create designs with MUCH wider cantilevers, and overhangs, without bracing…much more so than any other material.
White glass is also a very pure countertop color option that plays well with any style of cabinetry. When used for outdoor countertops above stucco or wood paneling, the effect of the Jetsons-Flintstones juxtaposition is very interesting.
