A glass dining table can bring about lively transformation in an otherwise ordinary place.
Since the glass top can be attached to any base such as wood, aluminum, wrought iron, statues carved in stone, or even an entire glass base, just changing the table top can have a major impact on the decor of the house.
Before you set out to buy one, you need to keep the following points in mind:
Based on the space you have in your dining room, you should decide upon the shape of the dining table. For larger areas, rectangular dining tables are the best. These are also the simplest and are able to accommodate more people. Circular glass tables cannot accommodate as many people as a rectangular table and consumes more space, but these are ideal for informal chats, as each one can converse with the other easily. A square table is considered as ideal for use in compact places.
· Size of the table
The smallest size of the glass dining table would start at 24×24 inches square table, which can accommodate 2 to 3 people. If you have a large dining area and more people to accommodate, you can go for rectangular table in higher measurements. Before finalizing the size of the table, you should consider the number of people that would normally use the dining table. If you have frequent parties, then you should select a table that would accommodate 12 to 16 people, without feeling crowded.
· The design of the glass top
Do you prefer to have a simple glass table, or you want to add style to the table top. The most popular pattern in the glass tops is to get it etched. If you do not wish to spend more, than you can opt for a simple floral design or the pattern of the leaves, if you don’t mind spending, then you can opt for detailed designs such as a human face.
Glass tables offer many advantages. Some of these are:
1.Glass reflects light, so it can brighten up the room.
2.Glass can match with the rest of the decor of the house. You need not change the rest of the furniture or the tapestry to match it with the glass table.
3. It is fairly easy to clean the glass table.
Thus, glass top is the best choice, as it offers aesthetic value as well as ease in maintaining.
