If you are looking for a beautiful way to protect your furniture so that the value does not drop, why not consider a glass table top to protect the top of your wood table. Ultraviolet rays will also be prevented by using a glass top. A glass top table is very convenient and can be placed on either a desk, a coffee table, and end table, bedside table, and dresser drawers. And of course, a dining room table. When you have a glass topped table, it will add a certain distinction to your home. You will not have to worry about anything spilling on your table or getting a stain or a scratch. Glass topped tables come in all shapes and sizes. Also, the edging on the table will come in either a penciled in, a beveled edge or even a polished edge.
When it comes to keeping your tabletop clean, toothpaste is a good way to get rid of scrapes and scratches on the glass. If you happen to have a grease spot, white vinegar will clean it right up. If you use a soft cloth and a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol this will create a sparkly shine to the glass top. If you want to protect your glass topped table from dust, try a combination of fabric softener and hot water and polish the glass with a soft cloth.
When it comes time to make the decision on whether or not you a need to have tempered glass, it is important to understand how you will be using the table. We be using it every day? Or only on special occasions? When you are choosing to have a glass top table as a preventative coating for your wood table, there is no need to use a tempered top. The only reason you would do this is if the glass is 1/4 inch thick or less. When you have tempered glass, you will not have to worry about your glass breaking into tiny pieces. This is great because you will be able to pick up all the pieces very easily. Although, tempered glass is usually a bit more expensive.
