Types of glass tables
Modern furniture factories offer a wide range of glass tables for the kitchen.
Decorate any interior of the table top made of transparent, matte, multicolored, mirror glass. Look beautiful models with imitation of natural stone, with a drawing, photo printing or geometric elements in the color of gold, bronze, copper.
A variety of combined structures - glass countertops with chrome legs, on a stone pedestal, with a wooden substitute, with forged elements or in a metal frame.
Additional lower glass shelves - for stylish design and storage of any small kitchen appliances, remote controls, napkins, magazines, newspapers, etc.
Vases with low plants, fruit-pots, transparent pebbles, ikebans, various cute little things are laid out on the basement.
When choosing a glass sliding kitchen table, be sure to consider the size of your kitchen.
Owners of large apartments and houses with spacious spacious kitchens have where to clear up, of course. But in small kitchens it is possible to optimize space and use competently every centimeter of the area.
So, sliding kitchen tables - a real godsend for any home!
In folded form, such a table takes up little space, just what is needed for a small family. And if you are expecting guests, just extend the structure to the festive sizes.
Rectangular Glass Tables
The glass table in the form of a rectangle is perhaps the most convenient for daily use. It can be put to the wall or moved to the center of the kitchen or living room.
In addition, it is a very practical idea for a small, narrow or through kitchen.
After dinner, the stools are hidden under the table, and the chairs are tightly pushed. A soft little sofa will also be a place for watching TV, working at a computer, and an extra bed.
Square Dining Tables
It is compact, but roomy! In small kitchens it is great to save space and fits well in any interior
A family of two people will put a square glass table in a corner, out of three people - pushed to the wall or window. And if there is not a separate table in the living room, then it can be moved there from the kitchen, because it is laid out in a rectangular model.
To this model, it is easy to select chairs and decorative accessories, trays and serving mats.
Round glass kitchen tables
The round table looks very refined and will make the spacious kitchen more stylish.
Of course, you will not put a round-shaped table in a corner and do not move it to the wall. Can accommodate 3-4 people at the round table. It extends in the middle and turns into an oval shape.
Where can I see the round glass sliding kitchen table?
In a house where there are little children. Such a table does not have corners, the child will not hit, it will be convenient to sit down and move closer to my mother.
And yet, a note to parents - if the table is supported by one foot-leg, it may not be sufficiently stable.
The most convenient and aesthetic option is a table top with three legs.
At lovers of family and friendly gatherings. During the round table, all the households and guests will fit, there will be enough space for everyone, they will not put anyone "at the corner".
There is much debate about kitchen oval tables. Are oval models of tempered glass comfortable and practical?
It all depends on the area of the room and the number of people that get together in the kitchen.
The interior of the dining room is more respectable and respectable if the glass oval table is placed in the center and complemented with chairs. If the kitchen is equipped with an island kitchen set, then the table is placed closer to the wall.
Tips and hints for your choice
Milky-white tables made of tempered glass are very popular among housewives. The white surface fits all styles of interior and harmonizes well with different fashionable decorative features.
Transparent table top will give the room a lightness, some weightlessness. The worktops of saturated colors (bright red, orange, green) will be made of tinted glass. By the way, frosted glass has a greenish tinge. These are the features of production.
Want to refine the kitchen, give the home some luxury and pomposity? Choose a kitchen table with a black glossy surface.
Black and white colors of kitchen furniture can be diluted with a spectacular color accent - a transparent or translucent table top bright and saturated color. Black table top can be supplemented with white chairs.
Add to the interior raisins - a glass with photo printing, interesting images, inscriptions. Or maybe a photo from a family archive or pictures from places of rest and travel?
The pictures will not be damaged, they will not be erased and will not fade, because the film with the image is applied to the countertop from the back side.
What do psychologists say? The orange, green color in the kitchen raises the mood and increases appetite. But purple and brown hues should not be taken a great interest.
Let's talk about styles
Do you stick to one style in your interior?
For classics and provence we select a glass table with a wooden substitute or metal refined legs.
Also suitable are classic wooden chairs, upholstered in leather.
Country style country will complement the glass table in a wooden frame.
It will be beautiful to look an aged or rough-worked table-bench, with a wicker substrate and wrought-iron legs.
Glass table takes pride of place in the kitchen high tech. After all, the main feature of this direction is the abundance of glass and metal, white and gray (occasionally black) colors.
Stop your choice on the table model with a transparent table top and aluminum legs. Strict forms, straight lines and nothing superfluous.
If the glass introduced some coldness and stiffness into the atmosphere of the kitchen, add in the interior items of warm natural materials.
For example, wooden chairs, soft textile upholstery, tissue napkins, coasters.
Bold designer novelties - tables of a neutral shade and colorful chairs to them.
What size do you need a kitchen table?
The rule is simple - at the dinner table should fit the whole family, but also to leave more space.
So, according to long-established rules, one person should have about 60cm width, and in the middle of the table there should be a place for dishes and serving items.
Well, and the length of the dining table count, based on the overall square of the kitchen, and how often you are all going to a shared table.
For example, a table of rectangular shape, with standard dimensions of 150x90 cm, suitable for a family of 4 or 6 people.
At the round table, with a diameter of 110 cm, not more than 4 people can fit. If you choose a diameter of 130cm - already 6 people will sit down.
In this case, chairs or stools should be freely moved away and do not touch other furniture or appliances.
Often, looking for a kitchen table, customers, thinking about the color and size, forget about such an important parameter as the number of legs at the table.
How many legs can be at the table? Which model is convenient and preferable?
A classic example is four legs. These standards have already been verified by time.
One leg - as a central base - a very stable model. At this table it is comfortable to sit, legs do not stumble and do not hit the table legs.
Another beautiful, convenient and functional option - three legs. As a rule, these are round, semicircular tables.
The table has two base legs. Although this design looks compact and stylish, it is still not very functional. On the sides of the table for a long time you will not sit - you simply have nowhere to put your feet.
What exactly we do not advise you, so these are the videos. The design on the rollers is applicable only in glass tables, but not in the kitchen.
Have become thoughtful, how to choose chairs to the glass surface?
Designers adhere to such rules in the interior: a combination of forms and materials.
To a rectangular table chairs of the square form are better, and to an oval - round. If the legs of the table are wooden, then the chairs are wooden, if the forged legs are ornate, then the chairs are made of such material.
What else do we pay attention to when buying?
Of course, on the quality of glass!
Usually the thickness of the table top is 10-15 mm, the surface from above should be without cracks, chips and scratches, and inside - without air bubbles, voids and various inclusions.
Do not forget to check the fasteners, accessories, the seal between the table top and the support, especially the joints between the glass, metal and wood.
If the table top is taken in the frame, you need to check whether the rim tightly rests.
In the event that there are children in your house, choose the tables with rounded corners. Or with a wooden or steel frame around the edges. So it will be safer.
In the care of glass surfaces everything is simple: use soft sponges and microfiber napkins, cream detergents and plain water.
Even if sticky stains, dried up grease or old dirt on the table do not give in to cleaning, do not use abrasive dry powders. You can scratch the countertop and ruin its appearance forever.
Fingerprints, traces of plates and cups on the surface are always noticeable and give an untidy look to the whole kitchen. Therefore, cleaning will have to be done more often.
In supermarkets, hardware stores, a lot of funds for the care of glass. Aerosols, polishes, sprays, special napkins, compositions and impregnations.
Under the rim of a wooden or metal frame, crumbs can collect - the vacuum cleaner will do it better than any napkin.
Mistresses to note:
It is strictly forbidden to cut with a knife on the glass. Use the cutting board!
Also can not be put hot, only removed from the fire, the dishes on the glass table. Buy yourself a few beautiful stands under the hot.
It will not be superfluous to recall that the kitchen table is not an ironing board. Glass top is not suitable for hot iron.
The glass surface can not be struck, with a force to put on it cups, glasses, pans.
If the glass table is making a sound and creaks from contact with utensils and cutlery, napkins, potholders and paths muffle unpleasant sounds. As an option - to cover the table with a beautiful tablecloth.
Such delicate nuance - Many complain that during the meal under the glass table top you can see the legs of the seated and the floor. To do this you already have napkins, decorative coasters and tracks.
Did not forget that your kitchen table is sliding?
Even if you do not often have a feast and gather guests, it is sometimes necessary to lay out a table. In order that it was not going to dust and dirt.
If you need to move or move the glass table, do not pull it on the floor, it is better to lift it slightly, the sliding transformer is not at all easy. Assemble or dismantle the table on a dry and clean floor.
So many models, shapes, textures and colors of glass kitchen tables. From the classics and the avant-garde, from white to unusual, from strict to fanciful!
Experiment with novelties, decorate the interior, collect your new friends at a new glass table!
