Glass Dining tables: Style and Proportion

Some advanced thought about your purchase will pay dividends later. With our guidance about glass dining tables we can help you to choose the right size, shape and colour of table. Of course it is up to you but a few of our useful tips may well help you with your thought process.

Size: when choosing your next glass dining table its always important to consider size and seating numbers to ensure you can fit your new dining table into the room but also feet enough people around your table. When thinking about seating number its always a good idea to check the table dimensions against your chair dimensions. Don’t forget to consider table leg position when looking at seating numbers. Our designers are on hand to help and will produce floor plans if required to show you how your table will fit and how the chairs will work with a given size top. A great way to work out what size you require is use a newspaper or masking tape to outline the shape of your coffee table. This will give you a great understanding of how the glass coffee table might work in your room.

Rooms: Its good to think about your room size and shape when choosing the right glass dining table. don’t forget to include for chairs when measuring up. It may seem obvious but square glass dining tables work well in square or large rooms while rectangular tables work in longer thinner room styles. Oval and circular glass dining tables can help promote a vibrant social atmosphere, as there are no corners, great for diner parties!

Chairs: A common question we get asked is what chairs go well with a glass dining table? Well to be honest, lots of chairs work really well with glass. while glass is a spectacular looking material it doesn’t over dominate and allows other furniture items to speak visually. We love contrast like old chairs against the crisp clean glass or the way solid warmth of wood looks with cool clear feel of glass.

‘Don’t forget that transparent glass can help to make small spaces look bigger by allowing light to travel through the glass table!’

Material and colour

Many of our glass dining tables come in a variety of finishes to suite your interior style and personal preference.

Clear or “Extra Clear” Glass dining tables? Regular glass – as you may have seen but not realised – usually has a slight green tint to its edge. Looking through it like you might a window it seems clear. Glass furniture often has edges visible so the effect can be quite noticeable. Some people love this and feel it is an attractive feature. Others like the idea of a clearer edge. Much of our glass furniture is available with “Extra Clear” glass. Be sure to mention this to us or select the option when buying online.

Coloured Glass Furniture: A growing number of our glass furniture items are available with a special coloured finish to the rear of the glass. Our range of colours offer warm tones to pastels, through to vibrant impact-full  colours, not to mention sleek black and white. We can also provide white with regular glass which gives a minty green colour. Some of our products may have clear glass in one part and coloured glass in another. For example, a glass dining table with a clear top and coloured legs.

Glass Types:  As we manufacture our own glass dining tables we can offer special finishes such as Frosting or Satin glass which can offer interesting refraction of light. Our glass is manufactured with a special frosted finish which is ‘finger print’ resistant meaning making it practically easy to embrace and low maintenance.  We also offer this glass as a coloured frosted glass offering a soft and unique finish not commonly seen elsewhere. Many of our glass tables are also manufactured using stylish colour tinted glass such as grey, blue and bronze tint glass.
