Types Of Dining Tabletop Materials And Their Differences

Estee Dining Table, Axe High Table, & Tessa Dining Table with Drawer

The dining table serves as a place for our families and friends to gather, where we share stories and bond over meals. It is an essential part of our homes and everyday life, which makes it important for us to buy a durable dining table that can accommodate all our needs and provide us with a safe get-together spot. 

There are numerous dining table options available, but the wooden dining table remains one of the most popular choices worldwide. Here are some other dining table options brought in by online furniture shops in Singapore, and why they make for awesome dining table options too. 

Why are wooden dining tables so popular?

Wooden dining tables are durable and can serve your family for a long time. High-quality ones can withstand years of wear and tear. They are also easy to restore, which makes them an excellent choice. 

Dining tables with wooden finishes are also timeless and will never go out of style.

Glass Dining Tables

Glass dining tables, as well as those with glass tabletops, are considered to be elegant and modern pieces of furniture. A well-maintained glass top dining table is a graceful addition to the dining room that enhances the overall appearance of the space, whether it’s for an intimate get-together or formal dining.

They require little upkeep and are easy to maintain as they do not absorb or allow liquids to pass through. When spills happen, all you need is a damp cloth to clean up the mess. No special cleaning products are required to keep it clean. 

Glass surfaces reflect light beautifully and instantly brighten up a room, giving it a light and airy feel. They also give the appearance of a larger dining space, which is ideal for small dining rooms with limited natural light.

Glass dining tables may be considered fragile, but thanks to advances in technology, they have become more durable, and you can now find improved versions of them on online furniture shops in Singapore. Stronger versions of glass dining tables now feature tempered glass that is thermally and chemically strengthened to resist heat and impact better than other forms of glass.

Marble Dining Tables

Marble is a natural stone that elevates the look of a piece of furniture and the look of the room when used. Marble dining tables complement many different decors and are eye-catching pieces of furniture. They are also available in an assortment of beautiful natural colours and patterns.

When properly cared for, marble dining tables can be highly durable and can even outlive other pieces of furniture in your home. Even if it’s not well-maintained, marble can still be properly restored by a professional. 

Although marble is a porous material, sealants are applied to properly seal them up in order to prevent liquids from seeping through. As long as you quickly clean away any liquid spills and refrain from placing hot, icy cold items directly onto marble dining table tops, they will remain as good as new even in years to come.
