Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed. Drawers And Lift Top Lids. Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children. Very often particularly in the case of wooden coffee tables the lid can be very heavy. Because of this there is always the possibility of small children trapping their fingers. If you select a table of this kind it may be necessary to secure the top until your children are older to prevent injury.
Glass coffee tables are terrific pieces of furniture. They have a more refined and clean look and since you can use a glass cleaner you don't have to think about ruining the table by failing to use a coaster with your beverage. But even though they look good they aren't necessarily the sturdiest. A glass coffee table could break if you hit it too hard or put your drink down too hard or put down a plate that is very hot. This is definitely the risk you take to get the streamlined and clean look a glass coffee table provides.
In the end both are great and have their place in the home. I rarely meet a coffee table I don't like for some reason. The most important thing is to select the one that best complements the look and feel of the room you plan to place it in and your house as a whole.
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. Of course it is up to individual parents to make their own choices in this matter but it is always best to err on the side of caution where safety is at stake. For parents who consider a glass coffee table an absolute necessity the option of safety films should also be looked into.
