Why the glass table tops becoming more and more popular than other material? There is truly something to be said for a classic glass table top, the way the light reflects off it, and the air of openness it gives a room. It is truly a remarkable, cool, elegant piece of furniture for any kitchen, reception, living or dining room. It adds a brand new freshness and sensational appeal to any room whether it is home or commercial place. Maybe that is why more and more people are opting for glass table tops versus the traditional wood table.
Wood in its own essence is still very popular and elegant, but glass table tops are becoming all the rage in style and sophistication. First of all glass tops are very easy to wipe down, and clean. All you need is a little window cleaner and a towel and you have your beautiful glass shine back in order. Of course, scratching can happen or fingerprints can pile up. On the other hand, wood can scratch as well. It’s how you maintain your glass table top that will give you years of great use out of it. You can easily maintain the table by using placements or a clear cover and by using coasters. You can also use a tablecloth but, that does take away from the spatial beauty of the glass table tops. Be sure to take special care when using your utensils or dishes on your glass table because they may create scratches if used inappropriately, that is why it is best, while you are eating to use place-mats. Not only that, the durability of a glass table is just as durable as wood table and can last as long if properly maintained.
When choosing a glass table, keep in mind who in your home will be using it. Glass tables may not be suitable for young children who are still learning to use utensils and like to bang on things. Children between the ages of twelve and eighteen will be more responsible when using a glass table top. Also, keep in mind, what you plan to do at the table if it is for more formal dining or everyday dining. They make glass tables that meet either of these needs. Yet if you plan on doing bills or homework on them every day, you might want wood instead for a more comfortable feel. But the choice and preference are yours to make.
Glass table tops are great for rooms with a view as well. Especially if you can see a lake or a beautiful natural element from your room because you can see right through the table and it won’t hide or diminish the great view. A glass table only adds to the elegance of a beautiful and spatial room and view.
All in all, choosing a glass table top for your home is still very much a personal choice, that is becoming quite popular with many people these days. I suggest before buying a glass table to go to your local furniture dealer and see how they look and feel. Many of them are very elegant and it’s up to you to decide if it fits right in with your home decor and personality.
