Who has one? Are they a pita to keep clean? Do you like it?

Iím considering this one from Wayfair In the Havana color and will pair it with the extra white chairs from my dining room Set.

They are a pain to keep clean, especially with kids.

I have a large glass top coffee table. I use window cleaner to clean it. Easy to maintain. Just make sure you don't put scratchy things on top if you don't want scratches.
ETA: I don't have kids but I do have a sloppy husband.

I donít like anything about glass-top tables. I think they look fragile, cold, and cheap. I donít like looking through them to the legs. I think they show every speck of dust and every fingerprint. Sorry, you asked, JMO.

Dh just voted it out. On to something different.

I agree about seeing your legs through the glass! When I tried one out at the furniture store that was the one thing I didnít like, but I liked the rest of it.

Horrible if you have pets. All the hair shows.

We have one. We have had it for the past 20 years. Itís old, itís scratched, and itís hard to keep clean. But we decided that at least we have a table to eat on and our money could be spent doing something else.

My SD and SIL had a glass top table in the kitchen. They bought it before they married and it lasted until the oldest was eight.

Then one day SIL dropped something on the table and it shattered. Turned out it wasn’t tempered glass. It broke into huge sharp pieces that gouged lines in the vinyl floor covering. Luckily no one was hurt.

If you buy a glass table, and have kids, make sure the glass is tempered.

They look nice, but yes, kind of a pain. My Mom has a glass dining and matching coffee table and I have a glass desk. Dust accumulates way too often.
