Various Types of Coasters Available Today and Their Uses


Coasters on a clean table do more than just look good: they serve a purpose other than contributing to aesthetics. These palm-sized mats are placed to protect the surface below from burns or stains, but pick the right set and they can also become a part of your decor.

If you’re considering purchasing a set, you are sure to encounter thousands of designs in the market that will leave you confused. Fortunately, Nestaire offers a couple of designs that will blend in with practically any type of decor. They are mentioned in this blog along with the most common materials of coasters found these days.

Types of Materials Coasters are Made From

Coasters are also made from a variety of commonly available materials, such as the following:

Wood – Wood is a bad conductor of heat so it’s one of the most popular materials for coasters that can handle both hot and cold items. It also brings a sense of natural charm into spaces and is affordable.

Metal – Although this material isn’t as versatile when it comes to protecting the surface underneath from the temperature of the drink above, it does bring a unique touch to your space, offering a serene vibe to wherever it’s placed.

Glass – Glass brings an impressive modern appearance to your space with the ability to cast a luxurious impression on visitors. It can be moulded easily, making it perfect for a vast range of tableware.

Ceramic – It is manufactured by firing and glazing clay at extreme temperatures, leaving a hard yet brittle substance that’s widely used in designing various items such as plates, cups, coasters, and so on.

Marble – Another commonly used material, marble brings a level of sophistication to your decor. It is also designed in a wide range of colour combinations and veining for many unique looks. However, real marble coasters can be expensive, so many people prefer plastic lookalikes instead.

Cork – This water-repellent material is quite light, extracted from the barks of cork oak trees. It is also an inexpensive material, aside from being quite buoyant and heat resistant. All these properties make it ideal for turning into coasters and similar tableware items.
