I liked what you said about glass dining tables being chic and stylish as well as being sturdy. My husband and I are thinking of redoing our dining room. We are considering a chic modern look. We will have to consider getting a glass table.
Updating decor is exciting – I’m sure you’ll find a great table, Elisabeth!
I think wood table is better than glass table.
Thanks for sharing your opinion!
Wood, all day ‘er day. Less cleaning needed. A simple swipe and you’re done. No need to scrub until all fingerprints and smudges are gone, and then get mad when someone touches the table I just spent 15 minutes de-smudging.
Oh those fingerprints! Great point you made here.
I was always paranoid about glass furniture-tables and even cabinets, when the kids were small. No matter how well they were made I could picture them being smashed and little ones getting hurt. Now I have a wooden table in the kitchen , a glasstable inthe sunroom , and a metal table on the deck .
Hi Amy, guess what, another person here in the comments section said the same thing about worrying about kids near glass tables. Well it sounds like now you have wood and glass, so you’re all set with both :D
Wood, I love wood. I have had both and I always return to wood.
Hi Val, wow great to see you back in blog world :) Missed you! Nice to hear about your home preference here.
Slowly but surely, returning. Thank you for the welcome back.
wood table…..glass dangerous…childrens are very naughty
Ohhhh good point that the decision of which dining table material to get can depend on whether there’s kids in the house ;)
I have two glass-top tables inside and a wooden and a plastic table outside. I guess my vote is for glass, but I do love my wooden table that fits a large number of guests.
You have the best of both worlds, glass AND wood! That just goes to show that sometimes you don’t have to choose one or the other ;)
I would prefer wood over glass. :)
Thanks for sharing your opinion, Megala. The table is important for serving all of your delicious dishes!
We have wood now.
We use to have glass.
So now that you’ve had both kinds of dining tables, which one would you choose?
Paul tripped over a toy and hit the glass and it shattered. Luckily he only had minor cuts and this was when our kids were little. If you have kids glass is not a good choice. I would include people who are not stable on their like elderly or disabled.
Paul has lost his footing and the wood table has held when he stabled himself
Love the recommendations, Christy! Well done article. Keep on inspiring! Best wishes for a sunny and funny weekend! Michael
Hi Michael, the weather today has been beautiful and I went for an hour long walk :D Hope you’re having fun too!
Well done, Christy! Here we had rain and temperature like in autumn, but as the people as the weather. Lol Best wishes for the upcoming week.😀 Michael
Haha! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead too, Michael :)
You too, Christy! :-)
That depends on the apartment decoration. In my case, I prefer wood as more conservative. Interesting dilemma
Great to hear your preference and so true about considering the surroundings.
