Glass Tabletops Make a Room Sparkle
Understated Translucent Tables Reflect the Best of a Space
A glass dining table may not always be the star in a room, but it certainly plays a big supporting role. This understated piece of furniture often sits in the background allowing the rest of the room to shine. And from time to time it does steal the show. Either way, if used with a purpose, a glass dining table can reflect the best in your space.
If you have dining chairs upholstered in a great fabric, show off the entire chair! A glass dining table will keep your chairs in full view instead of hiding them in the shadows.
In this modern space, the dining table reinforces a glass theme and complements the hammered glass partition and the drinking glasses displayed on the shelves. Here, the table also allows the vibrant hues in the area rug to stand out.
Because it is translucent and colorless, a glass table is the perfect choice for this minimal, modern dining room. The simple design of the table harmonizes perfectly with the clean lines of the chairs and window treatments.
In this space, a glass dining surface allows us to have an unobstructed view of the dramatic table base. Sometimes, you can find interesting table bases at thrift stores and antique shops. If you find one you like, keep in mind that it's usually not expensive to have it fitted with a glass top.
If you have a glass dining table that you think needs a little character, a table runner or place mats can add warmth and interest. Look for fun textures and colors. You can also add drama by mixing and matching the place mats.
One thing I like best about glass tables is that they are reflective. This is a plus if you have great lighting in your space. Light and sparkle will bounce off of the table and make your room look even brighter.
Glass tables have very little visual weight, so they are ideal for smaller spaces. Even in this cozy eating area, the space feels open and airy.
Dining tables are usually the focal point in a room. However, with an understated glass table, the focus shifts to other elements that you may want to showcase. Here, the eye is drawn upward to the chic chandeliers and art on the wall.
