Glass Tables Care and Maintenance Tips


Glass table tops are simple to clean and maintain. Glass surfaces are also very strong. But if a glass surface is hit on its edge (particularly if the edge is not chamfered), it can easily shatter, even if it is tempered. It can also scratch. (Read our guide to edge profiles for more info on hardest wearing table edges).

Glass table tops are available in a wide range of finishes, shapes and sizes, but are rarely used for dining table tops, as they are vulnerable to damage and noisy. Metal bases can be glue-bonded to the underside of glass table tops but again, are rarely seen in hospitality spaces. For more on alternative hospitality table top materials read our blog. We do stock a range of glass tables, though they feature mostly as coffee tables for outdoor spaces, outside bar areas and hotel terraces. Our Dock Coffee Table is pictured above. 

Cleaning glass tables

Use hot water and detergent or Relay Spray and dry with a soft, dry cloth.

For a shiny streak-free surface use a glass cleaner such as 'Mr Muscle Window & Glass Cleaner' and a micro-fibre or cotton cloth.

Maintenance of glass tables

If a glass surface is chipped, use a diamond file to remove the sharp edges.
