Protect Your Valuable Furniture
Custom table top glass covers from Dulles Glass & Mirror will guard your furniture against scratches, spills, or accidental heat sources. Best of all, you can choose the glass type, color, thickness and edge types to get the perfect table cover for your table. Here are some additional benefits of glass table covers.
Conceal Table Surface Imperfections
Make old or new furniture look contemporary with tinted or frosted glass. Frosted glass is opaque enough that you won't be able to see through the table's surface, whereas bronze tinted table tops will highlight the rich amber tones found in wood furniture and wicker patio sets.
If your table is metal, try our gray glass table top cover to accentuate the silver tones.
Wood Table Protectors
Buy a table top glass cover to protect your wood furniture. Our glass tops for wood furniture will act as a barrier to protect your wood desk, dresser top surfaces, dining table or nightstand from watermarks, cup rings and more.

Glass Table Cover FAQs
Place the end of a measuring tape on the center of the table vertically. Stretch the measuring tape straight across to the opposite side. Use this measurement as the diameter and size for a round table top. Use this measurement as the size of a square table top or the width of a rectangular or square table top. Record the measurement.
Next, measure the length of a rectangular table top from edge-to-edge and record the measurement. Place the end of a measuring tape underneath the edge of the table top. Stretch the measuring tape up and read the number on the tape where the table top upper surface meets the measuring tape to determine the thickness of the table. If there's a hole for an umbrella, measure the diameter of the hole.
If you're looking to replace the table cover exactly, it's a good idea to look at the edge of the glass to determine the type of edge fits the table. A pencil edge is a flat, thin edge. A beveled edge drops off from the top portion to the bottom portion of the glass. A polished edge is thicker than a pencil edge with polished bright glass around the perimeter. A wavy edge has indentations around the perimeter. Write down the type of edge.
No. For protective glass table covers, we offer clear buttons to put between the glass and your table. This allows for extra spacing to keep it the cover from sticking and harming your table's finish. The soft texture won't scratch either the glass table cover or your table, and they're transparent so as not to detract from the look of your table.
Tempering a glass table top adds to its strength. Tempered glass is 5 to 7 times harder to break compared to regular annealed glass. Tempered glass is also regarded as safety glass because when it breaks, it shatters into small pebbles that don’t pose as much of a danger to you and your family.
In most instances, 1/2" inch thick glass tops are not tempered. This is due to the added strength from the thickness. However, 1/4" and 3/8" thick glass tops are mostly tempered for extra strength.
As a basic rule, tempering the glass does not change its appearance or weight. With that in mind, if you have kids at home or are just concerned with safety, we say, "when in doubt, temper your glass."
A glass table top is a piece of glass set upon a stand or pedestal to form the actual table surface. A glass table cover is a glass liner that actually lies on the surface of wood or marble table and protects the surface of the table. Glass table tops make an effective design statement when used for glass coffee tables, glass end tables, glass patio tables and glass dinning tables. Glass table covers can be used for coffee tables, antique dining tables, or desks.
To make sure your new table covers' corners match your table, you'll need to measure the angle of the clipped corners. Line up the edge of a tape measure or ruler with the outermost edge of the angled edge (this is where the corner would be).
Glass table covers are a wonderful way to protecting valuable or antique furniture without hiding its beauty. With a protective glass table cover, your wood, marble or metal table's surface is safe from spills, stains, dings and scratches. No need for placemats or tablecloths – you can put hot casserole dishes or cups of coffee on the table without worrying they'll harm your table's finish.
No waxing or polishing – glass table covers wipe clean so much easier than wood or marble finishes. With their transparent surface and custom fit, glass table covers won't detract from the impact of your table while they keep it clean and hygienic.
