Things to Consider When Buying Glass Furniture

By Neethu 19/06/2019

No home would be complete without furniture. Furniture has evolved through being in its place just for utility to adding aesthetics to the room it is placed in.

Everyone is looking for furniture(s) that will perfectly fit into their décor style and interiors of their home, be it in their study, living room, dining room or bedroom.

One of the most irresistible materials for home furniture has been glass for quite some time now and it shows no signs of slowing down. Glass makes it so easy to step up your décor game without having to splurge a lot. Glass is a versatile material which can be moulded into any shape and goes wonderfully with other materials making it suitable for any interior décor one has chosen.

Another reason why glass furniture has been appealing to most of the home owners, is the shrinking size of new build homes. Glass furniture creates an illusion of space and make a small space appear much more spacious and airy to the eyes.

Also, it is so easy to clean and maintain. Spilled the wine? Or even the hot curry on your glass dining table- no worries, just wipe it off with a wet cloth, don’t even have to use any cleaning products. But yes, it needs regular maintenance if you wish to stay away from fingerprints and smudges.

When you are planning to buy glass furniture- be it coffee table or dining table, it is prudent to understand your needs first. Is it a piece of furniture which is going to sit in the corner of the room with a book and a vase on it? Or is it going to be in the middle of your kid’s playroom? In the first case, you may be able to get away with a regular glass table. Regular- non-strengthened glass is fragile and can easily shatter and result in injuries. You would have to specifically look for a tempered glass table if you are looking for furniture which is intended to be used, especially if it is intended for high traffic space.
