WHY A GLASS COFFEE TABLE WILL COMPLETE YOUR LOUNGE
A living room without a coffee table can look and feel undone and incomplete. While your living room might be on the smaller side, having a coffee table is the best way to make the conversational area feel complete and inclusive. Coffee tables are multifunctional, from completing the look of your lounge, to acting as additional storage and display space. Glass coffee tables are perfect for any living room, but particularly smaller living rooms as the glass top makes the space appear bigger and brighter than a wooden or metal coffee table would.
WHY CHOOSE A GLASS COFFEE TABLE?
Like every room in your home there seems to be a piece of furniture that becomes the designated dumping ground, no matter how tidy and organised you try and keep your home. In the living room, the coffee table often becomes that place, you start to leave things there from your housekeys and cell phone, to books, magazines, cups and glasses. Avoiding the accumulation of things on your coffee table over time can be a difficult feat but when you have a glass coffee table it can be made easier.
CHARACTERISTICS OF GLASS COFFEE TABLES
Glass coffee tables are often thought to be flimsy and fragile. However, the glass that is used to make glass coffee tables is extremely strong and durable. In addition to the normal glass that is used to make glass coffee tables, there is also tempered glass that can be used as an alternative. The latter is thicker than the normal glass and features rounded corners making it ideal for those that have children.
GLASS COFFEE TABLES WORK FOR ALL DESIGN STYLES
While it can be difficult to find furniture items and décor pieces that all work cohesively to reflect both your chosen design style and your personality, glass is a particular material type that is suitable for various styles. The nature of glass and its neutral clear colour means it can be paired or combined with any type of material and it will work and be suitable for the room style.
GLASS TABLETOPS MAKE THE ROOM APPEAR BRIGHTER
Due to the clear and reflective nature of the glass top in a glass coffee table the natural light, as well as light from artificial sources will be reflected and bounced around the room. This effect makes your room look and feel brighter. There is even a possibility if the glass top is in a specific area that a spectrum of light will reflect off of the glass top and form a rainbow reflection.
GLASS TABLETOPS MAKE THE ROOM APPEAR BIGGER
In addition to glass coffee table tops making your living room appear brighter, they also make the room feel bigger. If you have a smaller living room, glass coffee tables have the ability to make it feel larger and more spacious. The transparency of the glass coffee table does not weigh down the space and makes the room and space around the coffee table near the couches feel more open.
