A Recycled Counter Top

jar-106855_640The type of countertop you choose for you new home can make a huge difference in the way you enjoy your kitchen. You want durability and beauty out of the material you choose, and without it your counters will not last the test of time. Homeowners who are most interested in going green are considering terrazzo because of the fact that it is entirely recycled. It is created out of recycled glass, which is cast into a concrete slab.

Terrazzo is a product that is well known for its durability and also its huge variety of color options. The recycled components make up the majority of this material. The glass chips originate from post-consumer sources such as windshields, bottles, and other glass products. While this is a beautiful green option, it is important to know that it is not cheaper than other popular options. It is not uncommon to pay between $57-$68 per square foot. It is definitely a commitment that a homeowner will make to the environment, but a great benefit is that it is easy to clean and so durable that you can expose it to heat on a regular basis without damage.  Click here to read more about the benefits of a terrazzo countertop.
