Glass tabletops resist scratches and are easy to clean, however only glass that has been tempered to resist breaking should be used outdoors. Add a splash of color to your table with a glass top in bright aqua blue or a deep, marbleized red.
Tile tabletops can bring an artistic element to any outdoor space. They may chip, fade, or crack, depending on how it is sealed, though, so shield it from the elements to prevent premature wear.
