Coasters act like mini barriers that prevent cold drinks or coffee from dripping condensation onto the countertop or writing desk. Few like to use coasters as a lid to cover the juice or cappuccino in between sips to protect it from bugs and insects. Since we have established the uses of coasters, let's proceed with how to go about picking one.
Non-polluting materials constitute these stylish coasters
Handmade coasters are trending nowadays. Be it ceramic, cork, neoprene, wood, travertine tile, synthetic rubber, polyester, or marble, handmade coasters showcase beautiful designs and offer customization options to give them a personal touch. You could get the manufacturer to heat press family names or pictures onto coasters made of rubber or stamp permanent quotes, verses, or drawings onto travertine stones. Some production methods also involve using laser beams to make imprints on cork sheet coasters.
Artistic expression can tickle your guest's curiosity
Attractive and catchy graphics like a simple monogram, a Fleur de Lis, or the four elements (air, water, fire, and earth) depicted on different coasters, can make the dining table organized. Guests would use them if only to appreciate the detailed design. Way to keep things neat and tidy!
Some points to remember before using these
Coasters made of fabric or neoprene should have a rigid material on its back, like rubber or something equally sturdy, so there is no slipping or sliding. When it's time to clean your coasters, make sure if it can use dishwashing soap or mild detergent. The manufacturer would attach a manual in most cases, but it would be better to use a damp cloth to eliminate those smudges instead of immersing them in water. We don't want to lose that rubber cover underneath!
