Glass Worktops: The best option for kitchen work surfaces

Friday 25th September, 2015

Glass has become one of the most luxurious, modern materials used in the home. If you’re looking to update your work surfaces, glass could be the ideal option. It comes with so many different benefits and it’s more affordable than you might think. Below you’ll discover the top reasons why so many people are choosing glass work tops and the benefits they’re experiencing.  

Adding aesthetic beauty into the kitchen

If you’re looking to enhance the look of the kitchen, glass work tops can really help. There’s a lot more choice available than you probably think. For example, did you know you can invest in a coloured glass work surface? Contrary to popular belief, glass doesn’t just come in transparent styles. It can be frosted or coloured and is available in hundreds of different designs. Brighten up your kitchen with a sleek, coloured glass surface. You could even purchase a stained glass work top for a more vintage design.

Easy to maintain

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages to glass work tops is the fact they’re so easy to clean and maintain. The kitchen is one of the main areas of the home where spills and stains can occur. Therefore you need a work surface that won’t stain easily and is simple to clean. Glass is ideal for this purpose and any spillages can just be wiped away with a damp cloth. You could even opt for self cleaning glass which requires even less maintenance.

Providing a clean, sparkling touch

Another benefit of using glass work tops in the kitchen is the fact it makes it look cleaner. The shiny detail of the glass always provides that ‘new’ feel. When you update new work surfaces, over time they can fade and become worn. Glass is long wearing and takes a lot longer to show signs of wear and tear. Providing you look after it properly, the worktops should still look brand new after many years.


Give the illusion of additional space

If your kitchen is quite small, a glass work table can help to provide the illusion of additional space. It helps to reflect the light, which in turn brightens up the whole room. It really does add a ‘wow factor’ to the space and helps to produce a more modern design. So if you’re looking to update your home, it’s worth taking a look at the range of glass work tops available.


Overall glass has many uses in the home and the kitchen is one of the best rooms to have it installed. Providing you select a trustworthy, well-known company such as Peterlee Glass, you can be sure it will be fitted quickly and with very little mess. You can also discuss your needs with the company’s design experts who will help to customise the glass work top to fit your needs. If you can afford to, it makes sense to have a personalised work top to fit your kitchen. You can even have it customised with various technologies and features to suit your needs.
