A coaster, drink coaster, beverage coaster, or beermat is an item used to rest drinks upon. Coasters protect the surface of a table or any other surface where the user might place a drink. Coasters placed on top of a beverage can also be used to show that a drink is not finished or to prevent contamination (usually from insects). Coasters can also stop hot drinks burning the table surface.
Coasters are used not just to protect the surface of the table, but, as they are usually made of paper, they can also be used to absorb condensation dripping along with the glass or serve as an ad-hoc notepad. Beermats are often branded with trademarks or alcohol advertising. Beermats are not to be confused with bar mats, rectangular pieces of rubber or absorbent material used to protect the countertop and limit the spread of spilt drinks in a bar or pub.

The first coasters were designed for decanters or wine bottles, so that they could be slid (or “coasted”) around the dinner table after the servants had retired. They were in common use after about 1760. Early coasters took the form of a shallow tray or dish made of wood, paper-mâché, silver or silver plate.
Saucers are also long used in western culture for much the same purpose from a long time. When drinking tea, it is customary to use a cup and saucer set. From the mid-twentieth century, drink coasters made in many materials and styles were being manufactured for domestic use. Nowadays, coasters are common as an everyday houseware piece and are also used in restaurants.
CONCLUSION: This article is all about coasters, which we need in our daily life, whether it is home, office etc. You might have gone through a few selective collections which can make your kitchen and dining useful and attractive.
