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.
Are your wooden coffee tables going to be foot-rests for family members and visitors? If you think that there is a chance that people will put their feet on the coffee table then having wooden coffee tables is the way to go. Wooden coffee tables and upholstered coffee tables are the most resilient against damage. A simple polish can almost always remove dirt or marks left by shoes.
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.
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.
