A great replacement for a traditional wooden dining table is a glass top dining table which does not clutter up the space. The greatest advantage of the glass table is its stylish appearance. It fits perfectly into most of interiors, looking especially harmoniously in the hi-tech rooms.
Glass top creates a fantastic feeling of light and airiness, so that it increases the visual space of the room. Modern glass top dining tables come in a variety of designs: wrought iron, chrome surfaces and lacquered wood are often used in combination with glass. Therefore, the price for this stuff is usually slightly higher than the price for a traditional “average” table.
It may seem that these units are fragile, but dining tables with glass top are very practical. The glass of the table top is very strong, as it is made of tempered glass. Additionally the tempered glass tops are covered with a special protective film. Even if you somehow break the stuff, the film will keep all the pieces together. Durable glass tops of dining tables are not affected by moisture and corrosive chemicals.
They are easy to clean, they do not absorb fat and coloring agents. The only disadvantage of such a unit can be fingerprints and stains which are left easily on its surface. Wipe the unit frequently, so it will always look shining. The bases for these tables are usually made from metal or wood. Tables with wooden legs are good in classic interiors, metal items – in modern ones.
