Glass kitchen tables are popular furniture in modern homes. The qualities of glass reflect our modern-day living; low maintenance and very slick. It’s a fairly modern material but can be made into functional objects. Glass can be very eye-catching so having a glass table easily improves a room and makes it look more attractive.
Similar to the effect of a mirror in a room, a glass table can make an illusion of a larger space. Being able to see underneath the table makes it feel like the room is brighter and more spacious. Most glass tables are easy to transport as well. Compared to traditional wooden tables, glass tables can be disassembled and transported in pieces. It can later be put back together. This characteristic makes it easy to move around in your house should you require it in a different room.

It can provide more options when it comes to decorating the kitchen because it works well with any colour and it easily matches with different kinds of chairs. You will notice that glass tables can be paired with metal, wooden or plastic chairs.
Cost-effective: High-quality glass tables are still less expensive when compared to a traditional wooden table with the same calibre. Buying a mahogany or oak dining table will cost more than choosing a good-quality glass table. Hardwood is very expensive and with most manufacturers focusing on green materials, natural wood is now a costly material to use.
Maintenance: Glass is easier to clean when compared to wooden tables. It’s simple to clean with a wet cloth and it doesn’t need any other cleaning solutions. While it easily shows dirt on the table, it’s also very easy to wipe it off. It takes a long time to see any wear and tear contributed by stains or dirt unlike in wooden tables.
