“ Brand: Wilko / Product Type: Coaster „
My partner has recently moved house. He used to live in a small room in a shared house and now has a cottage of his own so you can imagine its taken a while to get together the money to buy everything he needs.
We finally got round to getting a coffee table last week and then he decided he wanted some coasters so hot drinks wouldnt ruin it. I agreed this was probably a good idea and said I would look for some when I next went shopping.
First stop was Asda, but there wasnt really any I took a shine to in here so I decided to look elsewhere, I tried Poundland but there was nothing so I was just about giving up hope when I decided to have a very quick look in Wilkinsons.
Wilkinsons had a great variety of coasters and they varied in price from just 50p to £2 for packs of 4. I had a quick look and then spotted these. I liked these immediately because the design was quite funky and also because it would also match the grey rug we had bought the day before.
They were a bargain at just 97p so I decided to snap them up immediately and I was very pleased with my bargain purchase that went perfectly with my colour scheme!
The picture shown above is exactly the same as the coasters, they have a white background and then different shades of grey make up the spots. Each coaster is about 4 inches square and they house a large mug or a pint glass quite comfortably. They have a cork backing which means the surface of the table has not been scratched at all and it also acts as a great heat insulator meaning that the table does not get warm when we place hot drinks on the coasters.
On a couple of occasions we have spilt a drink and it has gone on the coaster rather than the table. The coasters are easy to clean, I just wipe them over with a damp cloth and leave them to dry. This has not ruined the coasters at all but I would imagine if you put them in water then they might start to come apart.
I think that these coasters do exactly what they are meant to do! They protect our table really well both from heat and spillages. They look nice and do a brilliant job and for 97p you really cant complain!
