There is nothing like a table beautifully set to wow your guests at your next dinner party.
Sleek and elegant to casual and relaxed, the best dinnerware set could dress up or down to match the look and feel of your dining experience.
With so many options for shopping for dinnerware sets, it can feel overwhelming knowing where to start. This guide will get you started in shopping for your new dinnerware.
Determine the Purpose of Your Dinnerware Set
Just like shopping for almost anything else, determine the purpose of your dinnerware set before you head to the store.
Is the purpose of your set to provide elegant entertainment for close friends or at important events? Will this be your everyday set that you use with your small children?
Consider the frequency and type of use to help you know the purpose your dinnerware will serve in your kitchen and dining room.
Know Your Numbers
Dinnerware pricing can range from $10-$125 per piece, whether by each piece or by setting.
Setting your budget ahead of time will narrow down where to shop and what products you are looking to find. Without setting this ahead of time, you run the risk of quickly going over budget.
You also need to determine the number of pieces you need for your set.
If you envision large groups coming for dinner, you will likely want a larger quantity at a less expensive cost per piece. For more quaint settings, you can choose smaller sets at maybe a higher quality.
Decide on the Material
Once you know the purpose and set the numbers, you can start shopping.
As you look at different options, decide what type of material you would like for your dishes. Dishware types range in material type from fine or bone china, more delicate pieces, to stoneware, glass, or enamelware.
If your dinner parties are safe places for beautiful yet fragile dishware, you might consider china. If you prefer strong and more durable pieces, you could learn more about enamelware as a better option.
Pick a Pattern
Picking the pattern is the fun part. Choose a design or style that best fits your personality or the interior design of your home.
Patterns could be neutral and detailed or colorful and vibrant. Think about the daily use of your dinnerware to help you choose the color and style you would be happy using over and over.
Know Where to Shop
Choosing where to shop for your dinnerware is essential. Online shopping makes it easy to shop from various companies and compare prices.
Consider stores that offer a warranty or might have your product on hand long-term in case of a needed replacement.
