Artisan Made, Kiln Baked Glass
Thick Glass Countertops are not only functional, a glass countertop will be a work of art for your home. Texture and movement is cast into the glass. This design is entirely customizable and you can even be the artist. We love the clean look of Ultra clear glass where the iron is removed and the glass is as pure as possible. Low Iron glass eliminates the green hue we see in standard clear. The glass can also be back painted to any color you specify. Just want a little color? Rainbow of colors can be added to the glass.
At Builders Glass of Bonita, Inc., we can custom create a piece of artwork that also serves as a functional Glass Countertop. Each piece is one of a kind. We will cut and fabricate a glass counter top to meet all of your custom design needs. Options for glass countertops are endless. We work directly with our clients to design a countertop that will be admired for years to come. Let us know what you have in mind for a glass countertop and we will help determine what thickness of glass is needed, and which hardware best suits the application.
Builders Glass of Bonita, Inc. has clear, ultra clear, satin frosted, crackle, back painted, colored and tinted glass options available. Your Glass countertop should be a focal point in your home. To accomplish this, we recommend 1″ to 1 1/2″ thick. Glass Countertops are all about Drama. If that is not thick enough for your design, custom countertops up to 3″, even 4″ thick can be custom made. We feel strongly about using Ultra Clear Glass on all of our glass countertops. Standard Clear glass has a green cast to it. The green hue inherent in glass is amplified by the thickness of the glass. Most Glass Countertops we do are 1 1/2″ thick. The thick glass below is 2″ thick and you can see how green it appears.
Clear Glass Countertop
Glass countertops can be cut and fabricated for your budget. This 3/4″ countertop was a budget friendly option. We love how this chiseled edge customized the 3/4″ glass.
Hardware used for your glass countertop will be determined during the design process. Glass standoffs are one method for installation of glass countertops. Standoffs will determine how high your glass will sit. A low profile standoff of 1-2″ is commonly used. For a more dramatic look we have standoffs 6″ tall.
A thick Glass High Bar is a popular way to incorporate the modern look of glass into your home. Glass High Bars are commonly 16″ wide and are custom made to your countertop dimensions. A glass high bar with an overhang requires a unique support system to support the cantilevered glass. Custom made supports are welded out of 1″ thick stainless steel. The handmade supports will make your high bar appear as if it’s floating above your countertop. Three supports were used to install this 1″ thick circular high bar.
Back Painted Glass
If you are using a back painted glass countertop, you might not need any hardware. The painted back glass can sit directly on your existing vanity or counter.
