Glass Vs. Wood Table Top: Which is Better?


The dining room is one of the most essential places in your house, not only for you as a family but also for guests. After family bonding over cooking, for example, it’s great to head to a table that is welcoming, fits your family size, and looks great to guests too. But, which is better: glass dining tables or wood table top?

Deciding Between Glass Vs. Wood Table Top

The dining room can have many functions, including:

  • Family-time room
  • Child study room
  • Where you eat

Dining tables are among the first things guests notice about your home too. It’s a piece of furniture that can enhance the whole look of the room.

All of this helps explain why people spend a fair amount of time and research to choose a table for their home and then adding the finishing touches. There are mostly choices between two products: Wood Dining Tables and Glass Dining Tables.

Benefits of Glass Dining Tables

Although either a glass or wood table top can be a good choice for you, the glass dining table is often more chic and stylish in the home, as well as being sturdy.

Glass top dining tables are also relatively lighter than wood. They’re easy to clean and adjustable even in compact spaces too. These tables are also made according to the needs and demands of your modern lifestyle.

Furthermore, these tables come in all shapes including:

  • Square
  • Rectangular

    That depends on the apartment decoration. In my case, I prefer wood as more conservative. Interesting dilemma

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      Great to hear your preference and so true about considering the surroundings.

    We have wood now.
    We use to have glass.

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      So now that you’ve had both kinds of dining tables, which one would you choose?

    2. Brigitte Giunta April 28, 2019

      Prefer wood.
      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

    I would prefer wood over glass. :)

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      Thanks for sharing your opinion, Megala. The table is important for serving all of your delicious dishes!

    2. Megala April 28, 2019

    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.

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      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 ;)

    wood table…..glass dangerous…childrens are very naughty

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      Ohhhh good point that the decision of which dining table material to get can depend on whether there’s kids in the house ;)

  7. valentinelogar April 27, 2019

    Wood, I love wood. I have had both and I always return to wood.

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

    2. valentinelogar April 28, 2019

    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 .

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      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

  9. WhyMommaWhy April 28, 2019

    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.

    1. Christy B April 28, 2019

      Oh those fingerprints! Great point you made here.

  10. Philip Ward May 1, 2019

    I think wood table is better than glass table.

      Thanks for sharing your opinion!
