Crackle glass has been making a comeback for some time now, and despite it being around since the 16th century, it is still as versatile and aesthetic as ever. But is it worth your investment?

Whether you are transforming your home or your office, crackle glass can add an extra dimension, providing a focal point or simply a safe and long-lasting feature to an area. Today we are going to be looking at why you may want to consider crackle glass for your next renovation project.

What is crackle glass?

More than just your average piece of glass, crackle glass is strong, sturdy and reliable – not to mention great to look at. Made using three individual pieces of glass; the three are laminated together, and then the middle piece is shattered creating a cracked ice aesthetic, which is safely secured between the two normal panes of glass.

Thanks to the smart design of crackle glass, it is incredibly safe and durable, making it the go-to solution for things such as table-tops, shower doors and glass partitions. If you are really looking to wow visitors, our team of experts can create a range of looks using crackle glass and we currently offer it in clear, bronze, silver, pewter, opaque, blue or even using mirror for a real statement look.

What are the benefits of crackle glass?


If you are looking for something that is going to last for a very long time, then crackle glass may just be the perfect addition to your space. Thanks to its build, crackle glass is up to six times stronger than regular glass panes, and so is less likely to break or crack. Particularly handy if you have a household with young children, or plan to use your crackle glass in a busy environment.

Great solution for your kitchen or bathroom

You may have seen crackle glass before in the kitchen, and there is good reason for that. Crackle glass is heat resistant and therefore perfect for kitchen worktops, humid and warm environments and practically any space that is likely to be exposed to high temperatures.

Thanks to its triple-layered construction, you can place a red-hot pan on a crackle glass worktop with no issue whatsoever. Perfect for household or commercial kitchens if you are looking for practicality and style in one.


A definite benefit of crackle glass is that it can be used almost anywhere in the home or office. Whether you want to create a cool feature in the office, or simply add an affective addition to your home, crackle glass can be used practically or decoratively, and offers strength and longevity.
