Avoiding Scratches in Your Glass Dining Table


Avoiding Scratches in Your Glass Dining Table

So, you have fallen in love with a glass dining table. Do you realize what a dangerous situation you are putting yourself in? A glass dining table is really an accident waiting to happen. At the same time, they can also be a beautiful piece of furniture that you will appreciate day after day. What you need to keep in mind is that you are going to want to help your table look new and perfect as long as possible. As soon as you start to see scratches or nicks in the table you are no longer going to appreciate it quite as much as you did when you bought it.

Placemats: One of the first things you need to purchase as soon as you purchase a glass dining table is a set of placemats. Placemats are vital to having your table stay looking new longer. Think about what will happen if you were to put down a set of plates at the glass dining table for dinner. As people are moving their plate to get food or sliding it just a bit as they cut a piece of meat they could scratch the glass top. Before long, that glass dining table use that was so beautiful will look marred and well used.

Table Runners - The next item to consider is a table runner. This is usually a piece of fabric that is decorative that runs down the entire middle of the table. This is a great place to set serving ware items. Once again, as people are trying to serve themselves from the various bowls and plates that you have set on the table they can easily slide those serving pieces and cause scratches. A table runner can stop this from happening.

Round Glass Kitchen Table

Round Glass Kitchen Table

The kitchen table is where your family and friends gather around for coffee or for meals. It's around this table that relationships are reinforced. A round glass kitchen table best promotes this feeling of being bonded together. There are two major reasons for choosing a round glass table.

First, its seating capacity is a little more flexible than rectangular tables. Sure, you would normally seat four people around a regular-sized round kitchen table. But, for instance, if someone unexpectedly joins a foursome for coffee, lunch or dinner, the round table would easily allow you to accommodate the new arrival. The fifth person would not feel awkward but rather welcomed into a cozy and friendly circle.

The second reason would be the ease of cleaning and maintaining a glass table top. Cleaning up spills on the table is easy when it is made of glass. You can just blot out the spill and wipe it off. Your mugs, cups or glasses will not leave permanent rings on the table if you forget to use coasters, too. Spilled wine or other beverage will also not leave permanent splash stains unlike on varnished or painted wood.

Glass Coffee Tables

Glass Coffee Tables

It wasn't too long ago when glass coffee tables were reserved for nobility. Now, thanks to modern technology, glass tables have become much more inexpensive. This affordability does diminish it class, and glass coffee tables are one of the most sought-after pieces of furniture.

The Gambaro brothers created the earliest glass coffee tables -made of Venetian crystal - in the early 1900s, by applying the skills they learned after decades of glass making. But people' s fascination with glass started even earlier during the Renaissance period when Murano introduced intricate creations that were reserved for royalty. The craftsmanship of glass coffee tables has since diminished because of modern glass-making technology, but the use of glass in both décor and functional processes still remains and continues to flourish.

You can now have the same elegance enjoyed only by a select few back in the day. When you buy a glass coffee table, you instantly add sophistication to any of your rooms.  Before you pick a design, remember to choose glass tops that are at least a quarter of an inch thick - they are more durable and practical for everyday use.

Protect Your Wooden Furniture by the Use of Glass Table Tops


A dining table is one of the most frequently used items of furniture in any home. All breakfasts, lunches and dinners that are served on it provide the possibility of damage to the soft wooden surface.

Damage caused by scratches and spills could not be more effectively prevented by any means than by the use of glass table tops.

Glass is a hard, durable material which is used to cover and protect the top surfaces of delicate wooden furniture, such as side, patio, kitchen and dining tables or even a chest of drawers in the bedroom, a console table in the hallway or a computer desk in the office. They are available in different shapes, sizes and thickness. The heavier and taller the furniture item is, the thicker the glass table top should ideally be.

Round Glass Coffee Tables, A Classic Updated

Round Glass Coffee Tables, A Classic Updated

In the 1950s, coffee tables were extremely chic and every house had at least one, if not several. Few living rooms were without these tables, and often, if there was a family room or playroom, the sofa grouping there would have one too.

While traditional wood tables have always been popular, round glass coffee tables really came into their own during this period, as modern and contemporary furnishings came back into fashion.

Today, round glass coffee tables remain popular, largely because they allow a room to remain open looking while still being a statement piece. That's because coffee tables with glass tops or even tops and sides can break the mold in terms of defining what a coffee table should be.

For instance, you can purchase lovely tables that allow you to showcase your interests. Some can be as simple as a wood or glass cube underneath with a spacious glass top above. If the cube is glass, you can usually add a valuable collectible or sculpture inside, letting people enjoy both the table and a work of art at the same time. Many people will fill the bottom with sand and seashells or even create a terrarium under glass.

But that's really just a beginning. Because the glass top can really be placed over anything that can serve as a pedestal, you can purchase round glass coffee tables that feature large sculptures as the base. If you love the sea and beach, you can get tables with a large dolphin or whale as the base. Or you can even get ones with striking pieces of driftwood found on a beach or a sculpture of a coral reef, complete with tropical fish darting in and out of it.

That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed.

How a Glass Table Top Can Extend the Life of Your Furniture

How a Glass Table Top Can Extend the Life of Your Furniture

Many of us invest in quality pieces of furniture for our homes and offices that are intended to last a lifetime. The reality for most is that general wear and tear and scratches and dents are virtually unavoidable. But are they really?

A glass table top is a tried and tested way to protect wood furniture. It adds a tough, durable layer that doesn't overshadow the wood. Instead of furniture looking tired and shabby five years down the track, a glass table top keeps furniture looking just as fresh as the day you bought it.

A Glass Table Top From The 21st Century
There have been many advances in glass table tops and glass shelving manufacturing over the past few years. No longer does the glass look like a thick obtrusive piece of material. Glass tops and glass shelving these days are thin, clear, and streamlined. The design direction dictates that a glass is virtually invisible and serves to enhance the wood not disguise it.

With this new technology meaning that glass tops blend in with your furniture, you could expand the uses of the table top to sideboards, dressing tables, desks, coffee tables and another other wood furniture in need of protecting.

Protection From Harsher materials
The main purpose of a glass top is protection. Because wood is an organic material, it is naturally pliable and quite soft in comparison to harsher manmade materials. This means that everyday items such as bowls, plates, staplers, and paperclips, can all leave wood furniture dented and scratched.

Glass Table Tops - Why and How to Get Them

Glass Table Tops - Why and How to Get Them

Can any one type of table be considered the best? There's no accounting for tastes, and different materials are more or less suited to different purposes, so the answer would have to be "no". Glass table tops, while not the most popular choice for tables, do offer a wide range of benefits for people who make use of them, however. Besides use as protective glass table tops, they also suitable for use by themselves. Let's take a look at the different situations in which we would want to use glass as a table surface. Keep in mind that we are talking about tempered glass table tops here- this type of glass should be used because there is less chance of injury should the glass inadvertently break during use.

Custom glass table tops are easily purchased from glass companies who offer a wide range of sizes. These will be available for a number of standard shapes, such as circular, square, rectangular, and oval. For protective or replacement glass, this is the most economical way to get glass. Glass will protect marble from etching, which it does easily when exposed to common acids like fruit juice and coffee. It will also prevent wood from getting dented when used for a writing surface- pine furniture is soft and may dent easily.

Glass Desks - Incredible Style, Incredible Function

Glass Desks - Incredible Style, Incredible Function

More people than ever are looking for more contemporary decorating and furniture options than ever before. The glass desk is quickly becoming a popular choice in many office and home environments, as are other types of glass tables. While they may not have the longevity that desks made of wood do, they do have a style that it is not possible to recreate.

Your standard glass desk will often have legs or a stand made of steel, most often stainless Steele unless otherwise stated. This works well in most contemporary and modern decors, and is also durable. Cheaper models will use hollow steel or aluminum, which may not last as long. If you are looking for a more functional model that will last for years down the line, it may be better to spend a little extra on a model with more sturdy legs.

The thickness of the glass on these types of desks is also important. Glass that is too thin will break easily, especially if you intend to use a computer on the surface - not to mention if you use multiple monitors. Thicker glass is recommended, at least 1/4 of an inch. Glass that is too thick can be a burden to move when the time comes, and if mishandled during transit can scratch - or worse, shatter. These are important things to keep in mind.

How to Clean Your Glass Table Tops

How to Clean Your Glass Table Tops

When you saw the glass table tops in the store or catalog, they were so beautifully clean and streak-free that you had to make a purchase. But then you brought the table home and after a few days accepted the fact that keeping glass tops clean is not as easy as you thought. Or is it?

Many people turn to glass table tops for many reasons -- their classy look, their capability of lightening up a room by reflecting light and offering an alternative to dark wood, and their protective durability. While some glass tables just consist of a glass surface, other designs involve glass tops that protect a wood table that lies beneath. Wood is highly susceptible to damage from scratches and dents from common, everyday items -- from plates and silverware in the kitchen to paperclips and wire-bound notebooks in the office. For that reason, many homeowners and businesspersons alike turn to glass to protect their investment. A conference table glass top can defend large executive desks against sustaining damage. However, if you're a busy executive with not a lot of cleaning experience or simply someone who's never owned a glass table before, here is all you need to know about keeping your table tops clean.

Cleaning Table Glass Tops

Cleaning Table Glass Tops

  Everybody knows what glass top dining tables can do to a dining room. They are, in fact, said to be some of the most beautiful furniture items that one can have. A table with a glossy top is a charm on its own and will not even need any arrangements. It simply has to be kept intact and in good condition in order to maintain its beauty.

  Basic to taking care of a glass tabletop is simply cleaning it everyday alternating wet cloth with dry cloth. This is important in order to be sure that all dirt, dried food particles and grease are removed. Lemon juice with water or vinegar is an effective solution to take out anything that might be stubborn not to be removed by just cloth wet with water. It's recommendable to put the solution in a container with a sprayer. This liquid may just be sprayed onto the glass and a cloth may be used to spread it and to remove accumulated particles that may be difficult to do with simply water. Another thing you can do is to use a tissue instead of a cloth. In fact, tissue is more effective in bringing that glass to a sheen. If you're unsure about that cleaning solution you just made, you can always go to the supermarket and choose among quite many cleaning products that are available there.

  These may even be useful not just for your tabletop but also or your tiles and even your drinking glasses. These commercial cleaning solutions may be more costly but if you simply want your glass to shine, price will probably not matter. Besides, these products also work by giving glassware a long lasting clean.

  There is nothing quite as versatile as a glass top coffee table. These beauties go with any décor and highlight any room. The base of the coffee table can be anything, but my favorite is aluminum. When you add aluminum legs with the glass top, all I can say is wow. There is nothing in the world that is more elegant or beautiful. I am fond of glass tops simply because they are easy to clean. All you have to do to clean one is grab window cleaner and paper towels. Nothing fancy to remember. Some wood has extremely delicate features and requires special care, not so with glass.
