Protecting the top surface of fine furniture has become more important than ever, now that wood dining tables
have become increasingly expensive and rare. Wood, marble glass and metal table tops can all benefit from the
use of a custom-made table pad that protects the top surface from damage. Dining tables are just one variation
of table that is subject to damage, however. Table pads are often custom-made for buffets, bedside tables and
coffee tables as well.
In offices, it is not uncommon to find huge conference tables with table pads in regular use. Sometimes they are
covered with individual writing pads for the use of meeting attendees, and at other times they are covered with
a cloth for more formal events, including buffet serving and dining. High-quality table pads provide a
protective surface that is approximately half an inch in thickness, making it possible to use a table for family
or business activities that might accidentally mar a table surface without protection.
One feature distinguishes the best table pads from all the rest. That feature is the particular method with which
individual pieces of a table pad fasten together. Many tables are too large for a single, solid table pad, so
they require custom-manufactured sections that fit together perfectly. Not only do they need to fit together,
they need to stick together securely. And one of the best methods to accomplish a secure fit utilizes powerful
magnets embedded in the edges of the table pad. It is a unique and very effective solution for table pads of any
size, and guarantees that no metal or plastic parts will protrude and cause scratches.
If you are wondering why you need a table pad in your home or at your workplace, it doesn’t require much memory
or imagination to picture those terrible dark rings caused by moisture seeping beneath the finish on a wood
table top, stains caused by spills or condensation around cups and glasses. Furniture rings are nearly
impossible to repair without refinishing, a costly and time-consuming endeavor. Most people just live with the
damage to their tables, vowing to use coasters and to keep beverages away from the wood. This plan is good in
theory, but it rarely works out in actual practice.
When a dozen roses are delivered for your anniversary, it is tempting to place them in a vase for immediate
display on your best table. Most of us are not worrying about moisture damage to our table tops whenever roses
are delivered. And, for the most part, we are not thinking about our table tops when family and friends gather
for holiday suppers, to be followed by a constant flow of desserts and beverages, and possibly game-playing.
Dark rings on wood table tops are just one of the many kinds of damage that custom table pads are designed to
Kids of all ages like to sit around a big table and work on projects or play games together, especially when
family and friends gather on special occasions. Dings and divots in wood or metal, and cracks or chips in glass
or marble may accidentally occur, unless a high-quality table pad is on the job. It is amazing how a custom
table pad can bring a genuine sense of peace and relaxation to your gatherings, before, during and after the
food is served. If there are spills, or if something accidentally drops on the table you will know that your
table top is safe from damage when it is well-protected by a table pad.
Once again, you probably don’t have to use your imagination to recall those times in the past when a table pad
would have spared you the disappointment of damage to furniture in your home or office. And, if you chose to
have wood damage refinished or other materials repaired or replaced, you are well aware of the savings that a
table pad can insure. Ordering custom table pads just makes good sense, and now it is simple and easy to
