How To Choose The Perfect Tableware

Although it may seem like a minor detail, the design of the tableware can have a significant impact on our eating experience.

It is important to consider the function of dishes.

We will show you how to select the right dinnerware, as well as some trends.


It is important to consider the material when choosing tableware. This will depend on your lifestyle. We have shared the benefits of different materials, including those that are more resistant to heat or scratches.

Chinese porcelain

Made with at minimum 45% animal bone Ash, feldspar, and kaolin. It is a beautiful, translucent, white, resistant, and light tableware. It is durable and will not chip. However, it is costly and susceptible to falling.


It is made with quartz, feldspar, and kaolin and has greater strength. It is resistant to thermal shocks, making it ideal for oven use at the table. However, it is fragile against falls.

Ceramics or earthenware

It is made from clay and mud. However, it has the advantage of being much less expensive.


Crockery is made from clay, silica, and cooked feldspar. Its advantage is its resistance, great hardness, and ability to withstand thermal shocks. It is cheaper than porcelain, and it is stronger than earthenware. This makes it a more popular choice for the home.


This material is made from petroleum derivatives and is light, durable, and virtually unbreakable. This material has the advantage of being able to be made into shapes impossible for porcelain and earthenware. However, it tends lose its shine with every wash.


Another important aspect to consider when selecting tableware is the size of the plates. This varies depending on what function is being served. Traditional plates are usually between 25-28 centimeters in size, but it’s becoming more common to find dinnerware that is larger. The most important thing to remember is that you should consider the size of your food portions so that the plate isn’t too full.


Colors are just as important as the size and material of the tableware. If you want to reduce the amount of food that you eat, blue is a great choice. Warm tones like orange, yellow, or red can be helpful if you have to eat more than usual.


It is not just the size of the plates that matters, but also the number of pieces in the tableware. It is important to consider how many plates, cups and glasses we will need in order to not have too many or too few for family and friends.


There are many styles of tableware. Each style reflects the individuality of the person using it. While the sober style is unadorned and white, the bold colors are a more youthful and vibrant style. Details reflect the importance and beauty of art and design.


It is important to know the occasion for which the dishes will be used in order to select the right one. For everyday use, tableware is different from that for special occasions and important moments like Christmas or New Years. Porcelain is the best choice for special occasions, even though tempered glass and ceramic are great for everyday usage.
