Many people own several plates and bowls that are chipped and may not even match. If this sounds like your current dinnerware situation, it is probably the time in your life that you should invest in a new set. This can seem overwhelming, but it is a key move into adulthood. 🙂
Time For A Dinnerware Makeover
As much fun as all your mismatched items are it is time to buy a set of matching dishes that you can use when you have company. Come on you don’t want to use your Golden Girl plastic bowls to serve a salad course when you host a dinner party.
Why You Should Choose Ceramic Dinnerware?
Ceramic dinnerware is very sturdy making it a great choice for plates that will be used often. These plates and bowls will also be very durable and stand up to being used daily. Ceramic is also dishwasher safe which means you can easily clean this dinnerware and allow it to be sanitized.
What Should Your Ceramic Dinnerware Include
When you are shopping for a dinnerware set you will want to make sure that it includes at least:
- 4 Dinner Plates
- 4 Salad Plates
- 4 Pasta Bowls
- 4 Cereal Bowls
If you will need to feed more than 4 people regularly you will need to make sure to buy a dinnerware set that includes enough ceramic bowls and plates for everyone to be able to eat.
Choices Must Be Made
When you start shopping for your dinnerware you already know that you want it to be ceramic, but that is not the only decision you will need to make. What color do you want? Do you want it to match your dining area or do you just want something basic? Do you want your plates to have a design on them? If so, what design?
This is what makes shopping for dinnerware feel so overwhelming. You will have to decide on these decisions on your own. Lucky for you, the only rule about picking dinnerware that you must follow is that you must love what you buy. That is the only rule. If you like it, then you made the best choice.
You will also want to make sure you do your research and purchase your ceramic dinnerware set from a company that sells quality ceramic products. You want to make sure the dishes you invest in will last you for years to come. If you do not buy quality plates you will be having to shop for plates again and this is not something you want to do all the time.
Time To Set The Table
