Fine Dining at Home with Glass Modern Dining Tables

VGACROSELLA_DT_2__1472481032_88918

I grew up with wooden dining tables that have glass and my mother would normally put a lace table runner under the glass. And this would make our table look elegant! This style has changed now as we see modern dining tables with glass tops.

Glass top dining tables are of the easiest methods to decorate the dining room. While it is true that hanging a painting on the wall and a grand chandelier on the ceiling can smarten the dining area, the charisma of modern glass dining tables is irresistible! This is because the dining table is the central focus in the room, taking the attention of anyone entering the dining area.

Guests are led to sit on the table so they would definitely see how it looks and how it was made. By just looking at your dining table, they would know your taste!

Glass top modern dining tables are available in the usual table shapes we know -- rectangular, round, square, and oval. Furniture manufacturers used tempered glass, as this kind of glass do not break in pieces. A multi-layered screen protector, tempered glass has an absorbent silicon, ET film, and a visually clear adhesive tempered glass and eleophobic coating underneath. This makes the tempered glass up to 5x stronger than normal glass.

Modern glass dining tables are made using two or three materials. There is, of course, glass and either has a wooden or stainless steel/chrome legs and frame.

The new feature of dining tables is their extendable ability. Extendable dining tables offer the opportunity of having a table that can accommodate 6, 8 or even 10 persons even if it used to accommodate only 4 or 6 persons. This feature is a great innovation, making the table versatile!

The Leg or Base Design

The design of the legs or base completes the elegant look of the dining table. Putting innovation to the fore, you can see tables with geometrically-designed legs, one big base, intertwined legs that are made of the same material as the frame, such as chrome, stainless steel, black-coated finished stainless steel,...

A Man’s Cave to Suit Your Fancy

A man’s cave is a space in the home that is reserved or specially made for the man in the house. This is not limited to the spouse or partner but also to the son. The spouse may want a space for himself that can serve as his private nook or working room. Teenage boys usually request a room of their own so as not to disturb the other members of the family when gaming or playing with their musical instrument.
