WHY YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER A GLASS TOP DINING TABLE FOR YOUR HOME.

Glass dining room tables exude style and sophistication, and can transform the entire look of the space beautifully. But, as glass can be delicate, you need to take extra care. Before buying one for your home, it is best to know its advantages and disadvantages. When shopping for a glass top dining room table, be sure to look around, you can visit a Leather Gallery furniture shop near you to view our dining room tables for sale.

PROS OF A GLASS TOP DINING TABLE

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES ARE CONTEMPORARY AND ELEGANT LOOK

A glass top table complements almost every modern interior design theme. It adds an elegance and formality appropriate to a dining room. You can combine a glass table top with wood, leather, chrome, and other glass furniture items to create a balanced look.

GLASS DINING ROOM TABLES HAVE INCREASED VISUAL APPEAL

Investing in a beautiful glass dining table adds visual appeal to your dining room. It accentuates the colour, design, and beauty of the base material (metal or wood) which takes your interior décor a notch higher. Because of its transparency, glass never overshadows your room’s charm. Glass tables should be paired with good-looking dining chairs to make them fully visible. An eye-catching area rug under your table will give your dining room a unique look.

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES ARE VERSATILE

Glass dining room tables come in a wide variety of patterns and styles compared to other dining table materials. Some glass tables come with different base materials such as wrought iron, wicker, chrome and wood. As glass is not always colourless and clear, you can tint or frost it any colour you want. Moreover, glass can be cut into most shapes. Thus, you can always get custom glass tabletops suited to your needs and preferences. A glass top dining table can be round, square or rectangle

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES ARE DURABLE

If you are looking for something durable for your dining room, a glass table can be a good choice. Tempered glass is manufactured at high temperatures and cooled down under certain technological conditions. This makes the produced glass resistant to breakage and scratches. A damage-resistant glass top dining table is the perfect piece of home furniture and is safe for children.

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES ARE EASY TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN

It is very easy to clean and maintain a glass dining room table. Wipe it regularly with a damp cloth to keep it in good shape. If spills occur, a simple wipe is enough. Glass also does not tarnish or fade over time, so there is no need to use cleaning products to retain the its original shine.

CONS OF A GLASS TOP DINING TABLE

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES REQUIRE REGULAR CLEANING

Glass is prone to dust, fingerprints, smudges and spills which detract from its beauty if not cleaned regularly. A little dirt or leftover food on a glass dining room table is pretty noticeable. Wipe away stains right away so you do not have to work harder to do it later.

GLASS TOP DINING TABLES CAN BE DANGEROUS

A glass dining room table can be a safety hazard for children and pets if it breaks. Sharp edges can injure passers-by, so, for safety reasons, it is best to invest in oval or round tables without sharp edges. A tempered glass top is the safest option as it is the least likely to break and cause accidents. Use coasters and placemats to hinder damage to the glass.
