Do you want to protect your table top or maybe your garden table is damaged? Plastic table tops are the best choice if you want a surface for your table that’s durable and keeps its good looks. In this blog, we’ll show you which plastic table tops are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Recycled plastic table tops for indoors
Wooden tables are beautiful, and naturally, you want them to stay that way. But unfortunately, it’s easy to stain or scratch them. For example, you might have pressed a pen a little too hard, your child has been working with felt markers without a placemat, or a glass of red wine gets tipped over. But when you have a plastic tabletop, it’s not the end of the world if accidents happen! Attaching a plastic table top made of acrylic sheet to your wooden table will protect it from scratches and stains. At the same time, you can still enjoy the look of wood.
Tip: you can also make this lovely pallet coffee table with a PERSPEX® table top.
You can not only use a plastic table top as a table protector but also make a new table with it. For example, check out this side table with a plastic table top made of acrylic sheet. All you need is a base, then order your custom cut plastic table top in the shape and colour of your choice. The possibilities are endless, from a round plastic table top in matte black to opal white.
A plastic table top is also ideal if you want to construct a space-saving custom desk. Read more about it in our blog: “Making a desk with an HPL desktop.”
Plastic table tops for outdoors
