Let’s face it, a home will almost never be able to achieve the sort of elegance most home owner would want without glass furniture. That being said, it is important to always pick the best quality item for your home and when it comes to glass, nothing beats tempered glass for a few simple reasons.

    Superior to regular glass by four to five times, tempered glass is what most would term, the proverbial superman of glass.  Also called strengthened glass, this durable surface is created through a chemical or heat treatment process whereby it is modified internally to withstand pressures that standard glass can never handle.
    When broken, tempered glass fragments into small pieces sometimes called pebbles. Unlike regular glass which is known to shatter into jagged shards on impact, tempered glass breaks in a fragment pattern of blunt pebbles that are made to cling together. This will help prevent broken shards of glass scattered all over your home and may jeopardize the safety of a loved ones especially kids if they are not properly removed.
    Tempered glass is less sensitive to changes in temperature and can withstand high heat. This makes tempered glass a good choice for places where the sun beats in for several hours a day and where there will be direct contact with other heat sources such as hot water in the bathroom.
