Table protectors help to protect expensive and irreplaceable furniture pieces

Table protectors defined Table protectors are commonly referred to as table covers, table protector pads, dining table protectors, and tablecloths.

Choosing and maintaining table protectors

Table pads & table cloths Cheap table protectors are durable, easy to maintain, and come in different fabrics and style suited to every need.
Oilcloth table protectors These protectors are made of vinyl and cotton. They are waterproof, and this makes them useful in resisting stains and spills and can thus be wiped clean with a damp sponge or soft cloth. Glass table protectors Clear table protectors and glass table protectors are used to protect the table without covering up its beauty. Whether you choose a glass or vinyl cloth will depend on your preference and budget. Some people use cheap table cloths as opposed to hard table covers to protect their tables. This is advisable if you only need light protection. Vinyl tablecloths A tablecloth made of vinyl or oilcloth will act as a dirt-trapper as well as any hard cover used. Vinyl table covers are inexpensive and easy to replace. Glass table protectors, felt table protectors, and vinyl table covers all serve the same purpose: to protect the table's finish. Final word Whichever table top protector you choose will depend on your budget and the purpose you would like it to serve. Determine whether you want to purchase a table top protector for durability and protection only, or if you'd like it to enhance your decor and the room's atmosphere as well.
