Tips on Buying Square Dinnerware
Styles of Square Dinnerware
No matter how you decorate your dining room, your dinnerware greatly contributes to the style of the room during mealtime. Plain white dinnerware is a versatile option that can complement any style of decor, while white dinnerware accented by a simple border design or artistic motif can add some interest to your table arrangement. Decorative dinnerware with thematic patterns or pictures tends to fit better in casual settings, while simple, solid-colored dinnerware can just as easily dress up a formal arrangement as it can an outdoor barbecue. Whatever color or design you prefer, square dinnerware comes in an array of beautiful options to fit your dining needs.
Square Dinnerware Materials
The material used to create your dinnerware will ultimately determine how you use them. Bone china dinnerware is an elegant option with a delicate appearance but a durable form, which makes it perfect for special occasions. Porcelain is generally more affordable than china and has greater variety when it comes to color and patterns, while stoneware and earthenware lean toward colorful designs and are used for casual meals. For a truly indestructible option for outdoor gatherings or kids' dinnerware, melamine is a shatter- and chip-resistant material that comes in a huge assortment of colors and patterns.
