Coffee Table. Tuesday , December 05th , 2017 - 00:10:20 AM
Glass Coffee Tables: Glass coffee tables look elegant and modern and can make a room look lighter and more airy. However, they can also represent a hazard to small children and adults alike. This is because in the US there is no requirement for glass tables to be made from tempered glass.
There are few things to think of before you get this project under way however. One is that you are going to be putting coffee on this table. Coffee is hot. That means you need to make sure that what ever you‘re doing can stand up to the impact of a hot cup of coffee or that you take some sort of steps to protect the table surface. This could be as simple as making sure there are saucers or coasters to put a hot cup on. Another thing to think of is whether or not your artwork can be damaged. The best way to deal with this is to make sure the artwork is on the underside of the glass. That way, people pushing things around on the surface, like coffee cups, won‘t hurt your art in any way.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
