So you’ve found the perfect dining table and want to keep it looking perfect? Then a glass table top protector might solve your problems.

What is a table top protector and why is it a good idea?

A table top protector is an extra separate surface that you place over your table to act as an extra line of defence! It’s like a phone screen protector for your dining table. They are heat resistant and designed for safety. Depending on the style and materials of the protector, it can blend seamlessly into your table’s design unnoticed or be used to modernise and refresh a piece. They can come in different colours, too.

Table top protectors can come in a range of materials. Most common are: glass, clear Perspex, flexible clear acrylic / PVC / vinyl, and soft foam-backed vinyl.

Why We Think Glass Table Top Protector Is The Best

We got our start in the dining furniture market, so we take our tables seriously! We wanted all our high-gloss non-glass tables to have the option of adding an extra layer of protection, and settled on glass tabletop protectors because we think they’re the best option.

Our glass protectors are clear (for now – watch this space!) so they won’t detract from the style and design of your table and won’t wrinkle, warp or degrade as other table top protectors can.

Our glass table toppers are made of high quality, 8mm thick heat-treated tempered glass that can withstand even the hottest items without damaging the appearance or function of the topper.

Our table toppers come with silicone non-slip pads so the glass won’t slip, and no annoying air bubbles underneath. We also think they look really smart - sleek, carefully cut and elegant. They’re also a doddle to keep clean – just a clean cloth and spray bottle of water or non-toxic water-based cleaning product will have this sparkling and streak-free in no time. The edges of our glass protectors are also gently bevelled, meaning no hard or sharp edges. We also think this adds a little extra sparkle and class to it.

How To Measure For A Glass Table Top Protector

It's easy to get the right fit for your table topper. Using a measuring tape, stretch the measuring tape straight across from one side to the other side of your table. Get both length and width measurements.  

Our table top protectors come in a range of sizes, fitting most of our dining table collections.

Our most popular glass table top protector is the 120cm x 70cm option.

Other Benefits to a Glass Table Top Protector

No Compromises On Style!

You can have the dream furniture, and keep it perfect, even in a busy household or if you have kids. We know that real life isn’t Instagram. We know things get spilt, knocked, scratched… but a thick glass table top protector will keep your table surface pristine, and any of those everyday accidents can be cleaned up quickly without lasting damage to the table itself. It means you don’t have to compromise on the furniture and style you want.

Protect Surfaces From Sun Damage

Not only do our glass table top protectors add a layer of defence against bumps and spills, but they also protect against any potential sun damage/fading. Our high-gloss finish dining tables don’t fade, but if you want to add a glass top to an older wooden table and keep it in the family for longer, this is a great way to do it without hiding that gorgeous wood texture.

Use It As A Photo Display!

You can use your glass-topped table as a big photo frame! That’s right, you can place photos, mementoes, notes, even dried flowers under the glass layer and keep them in place. We love a creative spin on things here, especially if it creates a multi-functional piece of furniture. Dining table and memory scrapbook all in one? Absolutely!
