Everything You Need To Know About Recycled Surfaces

By | Blog

According to Insider.com, conservation and reused materials were both big themes at this year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show! With sustainability being one of the key trends at KBIS 2022, it’s safe to say that going green isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!

Customizable and eco-friendly, recycled countertop surfaces are easy to maintain and look great in any space.

Perks and Benefits:

These unique surfaces are composed of recycled glass and quartz and bound by resin. By choosing recycled surfaces you are not only cutting down on our planet’s waste, but you are also choosing a surface that will benefit your family and their health. Similar to quartz countertops, recycled surfaces are non-porous, making them a top choice for keeping bacteria away. These eco-friendly surfaces are also very durable as they are heat and stain-resistant.

Care

Not only are recycled surfaces well-loved because of their durability but also because of their low maintenance! Routine cleaning requires only a soft cloth, mild soap, and warm water. Although this countertop material is stain resistant, it’s not completely stain-proof. To prevent stains, spills should be cleaned as soon as possible. For stubborn stains, you can use a non-abrasive brush. Always remember to use hot pads, trivets, cutting boards, and coasters for additional protection to ensure the longevity of your countertops.

Sealing and Finishes

As mentioned above, recycled surfaces are non-porous and do not require sealing. Like other countertop options, this material can also come in different finishes. Finish options include gloss, semi-gloss, and leathered. 

 

Applications

Recycled Surfaces are available in a variety of designs and patterns that elevate the look of any room. A great choice for residential and commercial spaces, these surfaces are commonly used indoors as countertops, vanity tops, bar tops, fireplace surrounds and tub decks, wall cladding, entryways, and shower surrounds.
