Using coaster on your table or dinning space is not just a necessary thing, but it also shows some nice etiquette. Coasters come in different print, shapes, sizes and weights. How you use table coasters at your home can make a huge difference in terms of its utilization and benefits.
Generally, people have lovely furniture in their homes, which they love and take care as well, but unfortunately they do not use coasters to safeguard their furniture from getting damage or decay from sweating drink glasses or tea or coffee rings that form right beneath the coffee or drink cups. Even people tend to ignore table coasters when there is a big party at home as well. It is quite unusual and show how much they care about their wood furniture.
Show some etiquettes
Using coaster is not all about preventing furniture or other stuffs like that from getting damaged from the stains or getting the beverages ring on the table, it also shows how civilized and hygienic you are. It depends a lot on the formality of the room also. In a formal living room, it is considered highly offensive to put down a glass on the a nice table.
Similarly, if you are enjoying a nice tea or coffee time with your neighbor, it is not bad at all to ask for the coasters, if you able to find in front of you. I personally do look or ask for a coaster, if I visit someone’s home. I never feel shy, assume that the host might have forgot to put them out. When you do that, it shows your personal etiquette that is generally appreciated by one and all.
Put the coasters within the sight and reach
Being a nice host, you need put coaster right within the sight and reach of the guest. The thing is that there are lots of furniture out there that has different finishes, even a drop of water can create a spot. Hence, it is essential to use table coasters, and more importantly, it should be placed out right in the open. It is so because, at times, the guest put the glass or tea cups on the table when they do not find coasters around. Even, the host can himself show some etiquettes and pull the coasters out from wherever they are.
