How Do You Buy Dinnerware Sets?
The array of choices you face when purchasing dinnerware can be confusing and intimidating.
At first, when you look at a tableware catalog you may be offered a wide variety of choices, and when it comes time to buy, you may be confused by all the choices you have. From all the most common complaints and suggestions our customers hear, we've compiled the 5 most important things to consider when buying dinnerware to give you some guidance when you get stuck.
1. Make sure dinnerware fits in your cabinets
Be sure to consider the height, width and depth of your cabinets before purchasing fun, large and beautiful plates. It's a good idea to measure the storage space for your dinnerware before choosing something that won't ultimately fit. Before you buy anything, organize your storage space and consider its limitations to ensure that you don't have to return to the dinnerware store to return the beautiful dinnerware you've always wanted to buy.

2. Look for pieces sold by the piece
Buying dinnerware individually per piece, rather than per set, allows you to choose exactly what you want and need. Buying dinnerware this way also allows you to easily replace broken parts without having to replace the entire set. You have the flexibility to add different types of dinnerware to your collection to match existing dinnerware you have already purchased.
3. White bone china will never let you down
Elegant, classic and versatile, you can never go wrong with a white porcelain tile or bone china plate. The white background will make your food look more appetizing and sophisticated. They make a great base and you can always pair them with a brightly colored bowl or cup. It is interesting to add different colors of tableware to highlight the whole theme of the table.
4. Buy enough tableware for the party
It is wise to plan ahead for other families, parties and gatherings, even though there may only be one or two people in your family. Set up at least enough settings for large dinner parties that you can envision your family hosting once a year.
5. Purchase a set for everyday and formal dining
Purchase a nice set for everyday use and formal dining that you can use for any occasion. You don't need to buy two sets of tableware because you can dress it up or decorate it with decorative items such as linens and extra flatware. This will not only help you save money, but also provide you with extra storage space.
