4 of the best glass dining tables

If you’ve got your sights set on a glass dining table but need a little help deciding, I’ve put together a list of our top-selling glass tables to help you add a little gleam to your dining space.

A contemporary choice, glass dining tables offer elegant dining with a modern twist and can easily elevate spaces with their clean, simplistic designs.


Not only easy on the eye, dining tables are a great option for smaller spaces as their light-reflecting qualities help make a room feel larger and look brighter.


They’re also incredibly easy to maintain, making them a practical choice for busy households.


How to choose the right glass table for your home 


There are many things to consider when searching for your ideal dining table.


Here’s a little tick list of things to think about when shopping for your table.


1. What do you want the base to look like?


With a glass table, the base may be more on show than that of a non-glass table.


Whereas with other materials, a base is simply a means to holding up the top, with a glass table, the base becomes more of a feature to be admired through the top.


Bases come in all sorts of thicknesses and designs, including straight or shaped legs, metal or wooden legs or decorative pedestal bases for added grandeur. 


2. How thick do you want your glass tabletop to be?


Glass dining tables are made using glass sheets that vary in thickness, as well as size.


If you’re used to having lots of gatherings and your table is well used on a regular basis, you may want to opt for something thicker and more sturdy.


3. What colour do you want the glass to be? 


While glass tables are usually unpatterened, they can come in a variety of shades. 


Think about what you’d like your glass table to bring to your room in terms of colour.


While clear glassgives the illusion of space, colour injects an added splash of character to a space.


A darker shade, such as grey adds an air of sophistication, while a brighter cooler, like blue, will add vibrancy and playfulness.


4. What shape do you want your table to be?


When you’re buying any type of dining table, glass or non-glass, this question will inevitably crop up at some point. And the options are generally the same – square, rectangular or round.


Generally speaking, square tables are well suited to square rooms and offer a compact and clean look.


Rectangular tables are more of the standard variety with seats at the head of the table, and circular tables are widely recognised as being more casual with everyone facing centre – perfect for socialising. 



5. How are you going to look after your table?


Just like any other table, glass dining tables need to be looked after in order to keep them looking their best.


Glass tables are prone to clearly showing up any fingerprints, smears and any other marks, but luckily, they are incredibly easy to keep clean.,


Here are a few suggestion on how to keep your glass dining table gleaming: 



How do you look after glass dining tables?


Cleaning and caring for a glass table isn’t difficult, but it does require a little more work than if you have a non-glass table. 


As a glass table is easier to scratch, it’s important you pay careful attention to what you use to clean it with and how you clean it.

 

Here are some tips for looking after your table:


1.    Clean it at least once a week and after every time you use it to keep it looking sparkling clean.

2.    Use a mild detergent mixed with warm water and soft cloth to wipe it over.

3.    Buff the surface with a dry, clean cotton cloth or towel.

4.    Never scrub at the glass using abrasive materials or products as this may scratch it and dull the surface.

5.    For stubborn marks, spray baking soda and warm water on the area and leave it for a few hours. The marks should then easily wipe away.
