Common Solid Material- Wood is typically the material of choice. Wood tables are available in a plethora of painted and stained finishes and have the beautiful appeal of wood grain lines while also being very durable. Wood is still at risk for warping, however, but faithful polishing and a controlled environment that is not too dry will help prevent it. Plastic laminate finishes are still available on wood coffee tables to protect from water rings but others will be coated multiple times with a clear wax. This finish may still be subject to water stains, so invest in coffee table coasters if you plan on keeping your table water ring and stain free over the years. If any chips, cracks, or gouges occur, home stores and home improvement stores carry products that will either disguise or completely fix the imperfection. You may spend a little more money; but overall, wood is a practical choice that will last.
Here are some tips and advice about wood and glass tables. A wood and glass coffee table has a glass top with a wooden frame on it. This wooden frame is put there to protect the glass from breaking easily. It is more durable compared to a glass top only model. Before you go out and buy one you need to know what type of table you want. You also have to take note of the material you want in your table. Do you want a glass top or the traditional wooden top, do you want your base to be stainless steel or you‘d rather prefer to have stone or wood. These are just few of the many things you need to consider.
Materials that are Inexpensive and Low-end- These tables are generally made from materials like: plywood, particle board, or MDF. These materials are typically light-weight compared to solid woods and may actually be hollow inside, so if under heavy use or moved around a lot, beware of puncturing or gouging the material as it will cause unsightly damage that is difficult to repair. While solid color or faux wood grain plastic laminate may coat plywood and particle board to create a smooth finish, MDF is already smooth and able to be painted. Square coffee tables made of these materials are typically inexpensive and will hold up to average, normal use, but be careful of heavy objects as they could cause the table to bow. Also, lighter weight materials may cause the table to slide out of place with a simple nudge. Lastly, check the finish/coating on top to assure it can withstand condensation from drinks that may cause water rings or stains. If there are no concerns with the above issues, an inexpensive coffee table may be right for you and your budget!
Not only do these sets come in a variety of materials, they also come in a variety of colors, sizes, and styles. This is why it is truly understandable when the buyer complains of being confused when confronted with the decision to buy coffee table sets but here are tips that will help you in this aspect. Style: There are two aspects to style: one is the style that you‘d like for your room to have and the other is the style of existing furniture and fixtures of course the color of the tables are not far behind. These are important decisions because you don‘t want your table sets to look completely out of place in the living room due to buying the wrong style or the wrong color.
