Choosing New Dinner Plates

by GuestPoster on January 12, 2011

Whether you’re just setting up house for the first time, or if you are finally getting around to ridding your cupboards of mismatched dinner plates, there is nothing that is quite so satisfying as choosing a new set of dishes that you love.  As you make your decision, there are just a few things to keep in mind.

Classic Designs, or New Favorites?

Some of the oldest designs are still fashionable today – you can get new dishes that look exactly like antiques, thanks to the newest manufacturing techniques.  Whether you like Blue Flow or if you want a colorful selection of Fiestaware, there are plenty of classic designs to consider.

Some of the newest favorites are seasonally designed.  You can find holiday plates for different occasions from Christmas to Hanukkah, Halloween to Easter, and everything in between.

If you are looking for everyday place settings, then take your entire sense of style into account, and choose the plates you like the most.

Size and Material

The size of your dinner plates might be important to you, especially if you’ve got a limited amount of storage space in your kitchen, or if you are watching your portions.

You may like heavy, durable pottery pieces, or you might prefer fine china for everyday use – companies like Lenox and Pfaltzgraff offer many very popular designs.  If you like pottery, consider purchasing an eclectic set from a local artisan – you may be pleasantly surprised by the quality and prices offered.

Where To Buy New Dinner Plates

If you already know what you want, then buying your newest set of china could be as simple as a trip out to the mall – but if you’re not sure exactly what kind of new plates, bowls and other dishes you need, then you may want to start your search online.

The newest designs, as well as many popular classics are available online.  If you inherited a set of fine china and wish you could find replacement pieces for those that may have been chipped or cracked over time, you’ll be thrilled to discover how many companies actually offer replacements in hundreds of popular classic designs.

No matter what you’re looking for, you are certain to find exactly what you want by conducting just a quick search, and comparing prices.  Remember – dinner plates can occasionally be broken during shipping, so be sure the company you buy from offers a contingency plan.
