Most people when buying a coffee table, even a glass one, automatically assume that safety comes as standard. However this is not always the case. 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.
If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and color coffee table you wish.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces?
Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries. Many people suggest that in households with small children even a tempered glass coffee table is unsuitable as the possibility of it shattering is just too great.
