A sleek glass kitchen table is the dream of everyone who misses the sleek pristine look on their modern kitchen. This kind of table is preferred because it gives out bigger space illusion, reflects light and keeps the sleek and clean appearance on your kitchen. However, having a glass kitchen table has its own set back too. It is easier to stain, scratch or dull. When it happens, the dirt, scratch or dullness will be easily seen since it is transparent. A careful maintenance is needed then. If you want to change your regular kitchen table with this one, here are some tips for you.
Choose the function. A glass kitchen table is not as strong as wooden or hard stone table. If you want to use your kitchen table as a prep area, a glass kitchen table is not a good option. Change in to another kind of table. If you just want to use it as serving area, this kind of glass kitchen table will be perfect for your option since it will give an outstanding view for your kitchen.
Consider the materials. Choose harder and thicker materials for your glass kitchen table. Since you will need to use it more often and put more burden on it, make sure that you choose the thickest of all. You may also need to choose something that is not easy to scratch since you will use it most of the time and it will deal with sharp eating utensils. Add base or brace to prevent it from sliding.
Choose the best model for the best kitchen theme. Since a glass kitchen table is transparent, you do not need to think much about adjusting your table color with your kitchen’s color theme. It blends with any color. However, you have to be careful in choosing the right model to go with your kitchen theme still. If your kitchen is a modern kitchen, sharp or round glass kitchen with simple cutting and sleek model is perfect. Glass will also give you the pristine look of your modern kitchen. Combine it with vivid blue pendant light over it and glass cabinets will be outstanding and sparkling.
If you opt to country kitchen, this kind of glass can fit with it well but you have to choose the right model. A pure glass will not look good in a country kitchen. You better put it on a wooden table as an accessory unless you can find a glass kitchen table which has a classical European look which is a rarity nowadays.
Glass kitchen tables are beautiful but they are hard to maintain too. Extra care and handling will save it from getting ugly.
