Coffee Table. Tuesday , January 30th , 2018 - 22:09:32 PM
Glass Coffee Tables: Glass coffee tables look elegant and modern and can make a room look lighter and more airy. However, they can also represent a hazard to small children and adults alike. This is because in the US there is no requirement for glass tables to be made from tempered glass. Tempered glass is a glass that has been treated so that if shattered it splits into small, regular shaped cubes that are unlikely to cause injury. However, many tables are not made from this kind of glass. Many coffee tables are in fact made from a thicker sheet of ordinary cheaper glass. If this glass shatters it can splinter into long spikes that can easily pierce the body. For this reason it is vitally important to check when purchasing a glass coffee table whether it has been made with tempered glass. Not only should you ask the sales assistant but you should seek confirmation that their response is truthful as it can be very hard to tell what type of glass a table is made from just by looking. You might consider it unlikely that it will shatter, but people do fall, particularly children. Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries.
Unique Coffee Tables And Functionality. There are so many styles of unique coffee tables: Aquarium coffee tables, black leather coffee tables, mosaic coffee tables, bamboo coffee tables, oversized ottoman coffee tables, L shaped coffee tables, clock coffee tables, waterfall coffee tables, fire pit coffee tables, and many more. And when you look for a unique table you definitely want to keep in mind what functions you want it to perform. Its not just something to look at. Its much better if it actually does something to! Three of the most popular functions are storage, lift top, and eating meals. With a storage table you can use it to put away extra clutter like books or magazines. There are different types of storage tables. There are storage coffee tables with many drawers, with two or three drawers, and even storage tables that are trunks. If you decide to get a trunk coffee table you should check out a dark oak trunk table. These are very elegant and will be an excellent conversation starter. Unique coffee tables with glass tops are an excellent place to put artwork or beautifully designed coffee table books. The glass top enhances what you display and also because of the transparency creates the illusion of more space.
Drawers And Lift Top Lids: Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children. Very often, particularly in the case of wooden coffee tables the lid can be very heavy. Because of this there is always the possibility of small children trapping their fingers. If you select a table of this kind it may be necessary to secure the top until your children are older to prevent injury. Drawers are another hazard for small children. Fingers are easily pinched and trapped. As with so many other areas of the home safety features may need to be incorporated, such as drawer locks, in order to keep your child safe.
