wooden tables vs glass tables

You want to hire the best furniture for your event. Of course you don’t want to rent run of the mill plastic tables – your event is small and exclusive and you can afford to hire either wooden tables or glass topped ones. Which one should you choose? This is a commonly asked question even when people are buying furniture for their homes. The truth is that they both have pros and cons.
Wood has one great advantage over almost all other materials – it has a natural, timeless look that can never go wrong. Wood tables, so long as they are expertly constructed, can last a very long time and this is another advantage that they have – because they don’t have to be replaced they are much more eco-friendly. Wood can also be carved into ornate designs which cannot be obtained using glass. If you get a wood table it will be able to match the rest of your décor with ease.

Some people are against wood tables because they are heavy. If the weight of wooden tables is a concern for you, they you shouldn’t worry about it too much. Go ahead and rent as many wooden tables as you want. The rental company will provide people to move it for you. They will even bring it into the place where you are having the event and place it exactly where you want. Because wood matches with so many things you will have a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing chairs – you can choose from a wide range to match your tables.

In fact, if the room where you will be having the event is rather small you should use a glass-topped table because glass tends to make small spaces look big (its reflective and transparency properties). Glass is also easier to manage – all you need to do is wipe it. Wood, on the other hand, will need polishing from time to time. If you rent a table made of tempered glass then you will find that it is very hard to damage it – tables made of soft woods can easily get scratched.
Still not able to make up your mind as to which table is best? Then you can call an event planner or even a caterer to help you out. These are individuals whose job it is to plan events and provide food. They will help you decide on the décor of the room by telling you which items will be best suited and where they should stand. These professionals often have their own employees so that they can do everything that is needed to make your event successful. In fact, when the event is finished they clean up and take everything away.
