Burnell Bonnet. Coffee Table. January 19th , 2018.
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.
Drawers are another hazard for small children. Fingers are easily pinched and trapped. As with so many other areas of the home safety features may need to be incorporated such as drawer locks in order to keep your child safe. As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate.
That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed. This is a particularly nice feature if you have a lovely or expensive Oriental rug or flooring. The table remains useful but doesn't detract from the true star of the room.
Size. Make sure the height of the table is enough for your needs. Ideally it should be a couple of inches lower than the seat of the couch. Moreover the standard height of a coffee table is around 16 inches which is ideal for most of the couches found in houses nowadays.
