If you’re one of the many people who love glass coffee tables, you’ve probably got at least one of them in your home. There’s something about tables for glass coffee. It may be the glass’s sleek look or blindness as light hits it either from a lamp or from the sun peeking into the room. When you bring them home, they’re almost transfixing.
Those glass coffee tables will be a little less beautiful over time than they are at the moment. It’s going to happen. Time is magic on them and they will soon not be as shimmering as they used to be. You can stop doing some of this.
The first thing you need to do is know how to handle your coffee tables properly. There are only a few real threats, most of which involve scratching or breaking.
Unlike wood coffee tables, glass coffee tables will allow you to do many things without damage. Sprinkle some food or drink? There’s no problem. It’s going to wipe up. But you need to understand what damage can be done with that said.
You should take steps to protect the table when you put hard objects on your glass coffee tables. It’s not going to be a problem just setting a lamp on the table, but most people are never happy where a lamp is sitting. They’re going to move it around the tabletop back and forth and all that movement can lead to scratches on the table. Instead, between the hard lamp base and your glass tables, you should put felt or some other cloth barrier.
Be careful what you use when cleaning your glass coffee tables to clean them. Many cleaners are abrasive and your tables will actually be damaged. In addition, make sure you do not use an abrasive scrubbing item in your attempts to clean the surface when using a mild and non-abrasive cleaner.
If you’re wondering what you can do to clean it up, you can create one on your own. To clean the table, add a few tablespoons of ammonia to a quarter of water. Then use a towel of cloth or paper towels to dry the solution for cleaning. The only thing to keep in mind is that when using these cleaning solutions, if your glass coffee tables have some wood frame, you should be careful not to get it on the wood. Some chemicals can damage wood in glass cleaning solutions.
The final item to keep in mind is to make breaking your glass coffee tables less tempting for someone. Make sure the tables are made of glass are obvious. If you have too many things on the tabletop, people may not realize that there is glass underneath and may be rougher than your table top should be. To break them, it doesn’t take too much force.
