Our Many Table Top Customization Options
It’s best to start this shopping process with a clear vision of what you want your finished table to be – or, at least, the clearest vision you can come up with for the table. Since we can customize your new table top in so many different ways, it’s helpful to have a direction in mind before you start picking options and narrowing down your order. Let’s walk through some of the ways we can customize your table to help you make a plan.
Start with Shape
Deciding on the shape of your new table top is a good place to start this process. Look at the space where the table will live and picture what shape table is going to be the best fit for that spot. You might even want to go so far as to use some tape or something else to mark out the space on the ground where the table will be placed. It can be hard to visualize what the table will look like in the room so this kind of physical representation is helpful. By taking a bit of time on this step, you should be able to come to a confident conclusion about what shape will work best for this project.
Dial in Your Dimensions
After you have determined what shape you want to select for this table top, the next step is to decide on dimensions. At CopperSmith, it’s easy to order your table top to match whatever dimensions you have in mind, so feel free to get specific and order something that is ideal for your space.
There are a few key points to keep in mind when measuring for a new table. For one thing, if you are going with a rectangular table, as is common for dining tables, make sure to leave enough room in the corners of the space for people to walk around comfortably. If the table is too big, those corner spaces will be awkward, and it will be hard to get around. Also remember to think about what the table top is going to be used for, and whether it’s important to maximize space or not. A big dining room table is useful, but if this is a side table or end table, something smaller might make more sense.
Don’t forget that you need to pick a thickness for your table in addition to the length and width. CopperSmith makes both 1.5’’ and 2’’ thicknesses available in our selection of metal table tops. A thicker top might look better on a bigger table, as it will stand up nicely to the scale of the overall piece. That’s not a hard and fast rule, however, and you are free to make up your own mind on this point as to what will look best in the space.
CopperSmith Is the Easy Choice
When ordering a custom table top, the key element in the process is the partner you choose to work with for the project. An unproven, inexperienced seller might leave you a little disappointed in the quality they deliver – but that’s never a problem with CopperSmith. We’ve impressed many previous customers and will make sure you are thrilled with what you receive. Thank you for taking the time to consider CopperSmith and we are excited to serve you!
Have lingering questions about picking out a new table top? Review the questions and answers below to gain a better understanding of this topic.
What can I use as a table top?
Realistically, anything that is relatively flat can work as a table top. For a durable, reliable table top that holds up for years, however, you’ll want to pick a material that is known for its ability to take a beating and keep looking great. Metal fits that bill perfectly. Choosing a metal table top will give you something that has bold aesthetic appeal and all the performance characteristics you need to get a long useful life out of the piece. Don’t just default to a wooden table top when metal is an economical and appealing option available here at CopperSmith.
What is the most durable table top?
Metal table tops are some of the most durable available on the market today. When you have a metal table top fabricated by a trusted brand like CopperSmith, you can be sure you’ll receive a product that is tough enough to deal with everyday life. It’s true that some woods can be very durable as well – particularly species like walnut, cherry, and maple – but such tables can be extremely heavy and quite expensive. Metal is a wonderful alternative that delivers great durability and more.
What is a good thickness for a table top?
You’ll probably start out shopping for a table top by thinking about the length and width of the piece, but there is a third dimension to consider, as well. You need to decide how thick you want the top to be, as the thickness is going to impact how the table looks and feels. With a wood table, going too thick will lead to an extremely heavy piece that is hard to move around and requires additional support. With metal, however, that isn’t much of a concern. We offer tops in two thicknesses – 1.5’’ and 2’’ – so you can select the look that is right for your design. Either way, you’ll be getting a sturdy table with the durability required to stand up well to daily use.
What are the different shapes of tables?
There are countless different shapes that have been used to create a table. Typically, basic geometric shapes will be used for this purpose, such as squares, rectangles, circles, and many more. At CopperSmith, we provide three shapes for you to consider – rectangles, circles, and ovals. The right one for your needs will depend on the space you have available and how many people you are trying to seat. A round table top makes it easier to move around in a small room, but you do sacrifice some surface area. Typically, in a large dining room with plenty of space, a big rectangular table will be the right way to go.
What are restaurant table tops made of?
Durability tends to be a top priority for restaurants when shopping for tables. The reason for this is obvious – countless diners will be coming in and out of the space as the days and weeks go by, so the tables need to take a beating and keep looking great. Hardwood tables can handle this kind of abuse, but they tend to be quite heavy and very expensive. As an excellent alternative, many restaurants order metal table tops, which don’t weigh as much and do a great job of dealing with the regular traffic. Whether shopping for a residential or commercial space, metal table tops from CopperSmith are always a great pick.
How do you make a table top look good?
The best way to make a table top look good is to buy a quality table from a respected brand like CopperSmith. Sure, it might be possible to buy a cheap table top and fix it up to look good, but that’s going to take plenty of time and effort – and the resulting top might not look good for long, anyway. By shopping for a quality table from the start, you’ll get something that is made with good materials and has been crafted to maintain its appearance over the long run.
