If you’re looking for a new kitchen, your choice is likely to depend on what you’re most interested in. Price or durability might be uppermost, but perhaps what you really want is something that looks great. In that case, one of the options you might come up with is a glass metallic kitchen. So how good an option would this be?
Why should you buy a glass metallic kitchen?
The biggest thing a glass metallic kitchen has going for it is its looks. Imagine the elegant sheen of a metal surface combined with the brilliance of glass — the result is going to look amazing.
Perhaps you want your kitchen to have the wow factor whenever friends or family come to visit you. Or it could be simpler — you might just want to feel good every time you walk into your kitchen. Whichever it is, you can’t do much better than a glass metallic kitchen for stunning looks.
Why shouldn’t you buy a glass metallic kitchen?
Unfortunately, however, looks aren’t everything. Stunning as a glass metallic kitchen is, there are several reasons why it might not be the best choice. These are as follows:
There are obvious issues whenever glass is used, and a glass metallic kitchen is no exception. Glass is notoriously delicate and has no elasticity, making it likely to crack where other materials might give.
Even if it doesn’t crack or break, the edges can easily chip. That will leave it looking less attractive, not to mention a potential risk. Glass can also be easily scratched, again spoiling the looks.
Unfortunately, the most attractive surfaces are often the least practical, and this is true of a glass metallic kitchen. In particular, the surface tends to hold fingerprints, which are very difficult to remove.
Obviously, this would be an especial risk if you have small children, wanting to touch everything with sticky fingers. Even without that, though, it’s difficult to avoid getting fingerprints all over your glass metallic kitchen.
No metallic kitchen is cheap, but a glass metallic kitchen is one of the most expensive types. This might not be a problem, if you’re in a position where cost is no issue. Even so, given the other problems, you might still want to consider if you want to pay that much.
Are there better alternatives?
Although there’s something special about a glass metallic kitchen’s wow factor when new, there are alternatives. And many of these don’t have the disadvantages mentioned above.
For instance, a metallic Fenix costs less, while a metallic laminate kitchen is even lower cost. Both still look great and are far more durable, as well as harder to mark with fingerprints.
