David Artsmith  –  The drink coaster is all about perfection. Its presence means that someone is trying to maintain the perfection of their possessions. They don’t want their tables and other surfaces to suffer from water rings, liquid damage, or scratches. That is the purpose of a coaster, to stand as a barrier between your more fragile possessions, and the damage that can come from a variety of sources.

The appearance of a set of coasters in the home indicates certain qualities about the person who lives there. They show that the person cares about details, that they take pride in what they own, and that they are willing to do what it takes to protect it. It also shows forethought, as coasters are preventative pieces, that won’t be necessary until some point in the future.

One important thing to consider is that beverage coasters are more than functional items; they are actually a part of the décor of the space. Therefore you have to be careful to choose pieces which flow with the style and color of the surrounding room. You want to be certain that they don’t clash with the other features of the room.

One important thing to note about coasters is that they are mobile. Sometimes they simply sit in a holder, waiting to be used. At that moment, they are no more than tiny pieces of an environment. When they are put into use however the coasters stretch out across a room, acting like a web that brings their color and style to every inch of the space.

This can actually be advantageous. If you want to bring a color into a room without having it be a dominating or constant effect, coasters may be the answer for you.

If you are careful when you choose your drink coasters, you can actually use them for more than just protecting the perfection of your home. They can actually add to the perfection, by being the perfect compliment to the space.
