They can be low which are perfect for being placed in front of a suite of furniture, or they can be of a older Victorian model which is that they are higher round table tops, on a narrow support which would be placed bedside a sofa or between some reclining chairs. As said above some glass coffee tables are suited to houses that have a modern décor which can accommodate a table with an elegant smoke glass top for example, supported by modern, X-shaped chrome legs, or a longer table, also made of glass and chrome, with a lower level shelf for storage. Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.
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.
Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables, for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion, or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass? An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks, nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
