Dining table – Wood or Glass ? Why choose one over the other?
Dining tables are functional, giving you a place to gather around and dine. When it comes to deciding which one to purchase it’s important to ask yourself questions. Where is it going? Who will be using the table? How will the table be used?
What is the size of the diningroom? What is your personal style?
Here are a few suggestions when deciding on a glass or wood top dining table:
If you live in a small space and want the dining room to appear larger then choose glass, because it’s transparent. Since you can see through it will automatically feel more open and spacious.
It’s a perfect choice for condos and small city houses.
If your style preference is Modern then it will be ideal for your look – linear and contemporary.
It’s also perfect for people who are minimalists – who like a clean look
If you require a durable, strong table then wood is the way to go. There are different woods as well as finishes to select from.
Perfect for small or large families, as there are different sizes with options to have one, two or three leaves to expand the overall table size.
Lifestyle – straight edge or live edge if you like a one of a kind , unique look to personalize your space.
A wood table is a great surface for homework, card games and buffet dinners as well.
Both glass dining tables and wood are equally functional. Since glass is invisible, it might not be the right choice for families with young children.
Choose the surface that is right for you!
