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.
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate. Many small children have a particular fascination for coffee tables, spending hours investigating the treasures that they can hold. It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks, glassware, china ornaments, nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface.
Another convenient feature that some coffee tables offer is called a lift top. With this type of table, the entire top raises and pulls towards you so you can use it like you would a desk or dining table while you‘re seated on the sofa. This is a terrific place to play games, work on craft projects, use your laptop or enjoy a meal in front of the TV. You can say goodbye to those clumsy, unattractive TV trays and say hello to stylish functionality.
