Replacing Your Glass Coffee Table Top
Glass coffee tables are stylish, durable, and can easily be replaced when necessary. Replacing a glass coffee table top is easy if you take the time to follow the steps laid out below.
Step 1: Choose the Right Glass
When selecting a glass for your coffee table, you will want to choose something durable enough to hold up to everyday wear and tear. The best type of glass to use is either tempered or laminated glass, depending on how you want the table to look. Both types of glass are shatter-proof and will provide a good surface for the table.
Step 2: Measure the Table
Once you have chosen the right glass, you will need to measure the table in order to get the best fit possible. Measure the table top, including any bevels, before buying the glass so you are sure to get the right size.
Step 3: Install the Glass
- Be sure to use gloves and goggles when handling the glass!
- Lay the table face-down and place the glass on top of it, ensuring it fits within the outer frame of the table.
- Secure the glass with a sealant and make sure it sits level.
- Clean off any excess sealant and let the table dry completely before flipping it upright.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Coffee Table!
And that’s it! You have successfully replaced your coffee table top with a stylish new glass piece. Now you can enjoy the beauty of your new table for years to come.
