After investing in the perfect wood dining room table, the next step is making sure that your investment is protected. There is no better way to do this than by adding a custom table pad to your newest piece of furniture.
But why should you choose a custom table pad instead of a standard dining table protector? Let’s take a look at five great benefits of table pads for your home.
Ease of Use
Because of their precise fit, custom table pads are easier to put on and to remove than standard table pads. They are made to line up specifically to your table, so there’s no not-quite-right fitting to have to remember when putting on or taking off your custom table pad. Plus, the convenient fastening system will keep it snug and secure when it’s on your table.
Custom table pads are made to offer moisture protection, and this waterproof construction means that you never have to worry about spills. While seeing water or milk splattered on an unprotected can usually make the owner of a new wood table panic, anyone with a protective pad has nothing to worry about. This is great news, especially for families with young children.
Another benefit of having a pad covering your table is that they can add a heat-insulating barrier above the table surface. Table pads are generally able to handle temperatures as high as 600 degrees F, so if you’re serving up a hot dinner, you won’t have to worry about damaging heat stains from placing down that hot serving plate.
Shield from Marks and Scratches
An unprotected table shows every nick, scratch and scuff from eating dinner, dropping objects or being used as an impromptu office space. With a custom table pad, however, your table will never see the effects of everyday use. The perfectly fitted protector will keep your table looking new instead.
Refresh an Old Table
A custom table pad can also be used to give new life to an old table. Available in a variety of colors and finishes, you can choose a look that perfectly complements your home décor. Simply size up a table pad to line up on your worn-out table and give it a brand new look for a fraction of the cost of a new table – plus, keep it protected for years to come!
