For this reason it is vitally important to check when purchasing a glass coffee table whether it has been made with tempered glass. Not only should you ask the sales assistant but you should seek confirmation that their response is truthful as it can be very hard to tell what type of glass a table is made from just by looking. You might consider it unlikely that it will shatter, but people do fall, particularly children. Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries.
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.
Tempered glass is a glass that has been treated so that if shattered it splits into small, regular shaped cubes that are unlikely to cause injury. However, many tables are not made from this kind of glass. Many coffee tables are in fact made from a thicker sheet of ordinary cheaper glass. If this glass shatters it can splinter into long spikes that can easily pierce the body.
Are you the artistic type? If so you may like the rooms in your home to also represent your artistic side. One great way to do this is with a glass coffee table in the living room. Think about what goes together better than art and coffee? Many a coffee house is filled with artistic designs and creations. As a matter of fact many coffee houses create their whole environment around this connection. Additionally, many artists spend their time at coffee houses coming up with inspiration. If these two things are connected in the regular world, why shouldn‘t these two things be connected in your home? Now they can.
