5 ways glass furniture is better than wooden furniture

Monday 17th October, 2016

When you’re shopping for new furniture for your home, it can be difficult to find the perfect pieces. There’s so much choice out there – you need to think about the style, the size, the shape and the material you want your furniture to be made of.

Initial thoughts often turn to opting for wooden furniture – there’s so much of it about and it’s a traditional favourite for the home. But it’s well worth considering the option of glass furniture.

Glass furniture has so much going for it and, in many ways, can be considered superior to wooden furniture.

Read on to find out the top 5 ways glass furniture is better than wooden furniture…


Glass furniture is beautiful, contemporary and stylish

OK, so wooden furniture can, in theory, be all these things too – but so much wooden furniture can end up looking a little dated. Glass furniture, by its very nature, is sleek and smooth – essential elements of contemporary home design.

There’s a level of refinement that goes hand-in-hand with glass furniture. Its clean lines look high-class and sophisticated. And who wouldn’t want a home that looks high-class and sophisticated?

Glass furniture can be made bespoke to you

While there’s plenty of ready-made glass furniture available, glass suppliers such as Peterlee Glass will also offer the option of creating your very own bespoke glass furniture – made exclusively for you.

This means you can be sure you’re the proud owner of a beautiful and unique piece of furniture, tailor made just for your home and to your exact specifications. It’s the perfect option if you have an awkwardly shaped space to fit your furniture into, or even if you just want the reassurance that you won’t go around to your friend’s home and find an identical piece!

Glass furniture is tough and durable

Buying your glass furniture from a reputable glass supplier like Peterlee Glass means you can be assured you are getting something that is strong, durable and safe. Our glass furniture is made from toughened glass, meaning it is up to five times stronger than standard annealed glass.

Good quality toughened glass furniture won’t scratch or dent like wooden furniture will. It never loses its colour and will stay looking as good as new for years to come.

Glass furniture is easy to maintain and clean

A quick wipe over with a proprietary glass cleaner is all you need to keep your glass furniture looking as good as new. Wooden furniture can easily be stained or can become warped if excess liquid is left lying on it. Just think how easy it is to create permanent coffee cup rings on wood – never a problem with glass furniture!

Glass furniture makes your space feel bigger

A large piece of wooden furniture can often make a room feel smaller – light seems to be absorbed into wood. In contrast, the opposite is true of glass furniture. Light bounces off glass furniture and around your room, making space feel bigger, airier and brighter.

Peterlee Glass’s design team can work with you to help you design bespoke, one-of-a-kind pieces of glass furniture. Or if your old glass furniture is looking past its best, ask us about how our glass replacement service can refresh it or replace it where necessary. Get in touch today to find out more.
