Coffee Table. Wednesday , January 24th , 2018 - 10:40:39 AM
Tempered glass is a glass that has been treated so that if shattered it splits into small, regular shaped cubes that are unlikely to cause injury. 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.
No ladder? No problem - Yes, a sturdy table can be used for instant elevation when a light bulb needs to be replaced, curtains have to be changed, or dust webs require to be swept away from ceiling corners. But never attempt this, of course, on glass or wicker tables. Only solid wood furniture types fit perfectly for this particular use. This can be another consideration why a wooden table is a better investment than a glass one - aside from the other common fact that glass is fragile and very dangerous, especially in a household full of children. There are numerous instances wherein a homeowner would need that extra height, especially for emergencies.
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.
