Take a step back granite; glass is hot and it is here to stay. Whether its countertops, backsplashes or other design elements, glass is trending.

Glass Countertops

This may be one of the hottest trends in kitchen designs this year. With its non-porous surface, glass is very hygienic and stain resistant. It also provides a durable surface, which is appealing to anyone who does a lot of cooking.

Glass also offers a lot of choices for buyers who are looking for a sophisticated feel. The countertops can be made of recycled glass and come in a wide variety of colors. Anything is possible; style choices are only limited by the homeowner’s imagination.

Glass Backsplashes

According to the 2014 National Kitchen & Bath Association, most designers rely on inexpensive ceramic (74%) or stone (60%) tile for kitchen backsplashes. However, glass is an increasingly popular option. The use of glass backsplashes was reported by 52% of designers in the latest study, compared to 41% of designers a year ago.

Colorful tiles give vibrant life to a kitchen and it allows homeowners to incorporate bold hues that they may not be brave enough to try on primary walls.

Kitchen Islands

Kitchen islands are becoming more than just a preparation or serving station—they are acting as home and decor furnishings. Consider incorporating glass or mirror doors on island storage units, or use glass that compliments the other countertops.
