Why Buying the Right Dinnerware is an Investment Decision

Why should we care about the dinnerware we choose?
Well, it's not just about serving food; it's about enhancing our dining experience and also about making an investment today that will be with you for years to come: Dinnerware is something we buy very infrequently and something we hope we won't be buying again soon.
This means the dinner set we choose has to be practical and versatile enough for a wide variety of dining uses and experiences... such as weekday family meals, barbecues, formal dinner parties etc.

In this article, we'll¬†discuss why buying the right dinnerware is more than just a purchase‚ÄĒit's an investment that can positively impact our meals and our homes for years to come.

Important Considerations

Dinnerware is not merely functional; it's a reflection of your personal style and sets the ambiance for your meals.
Whether it's a casual family dinner or a formal gathering, the choice of dinnerware can enhance the overall dining experience. From plates and bowls to cups and saucers, each piece contributes to the visual appeal of your table setting.

Factors to Consider When Buying Dinnerware


The material of your dinnerware affects its durability, appearance, and maintenance. Common materials include porcelain, stoneware, earthenware, and bone china. Understanding the pros and cons of each material is essential for making an informed decision.


Since we don't purchase dinnerware frequently, durability is paramount. Investing in dinnerware that can withstand everyday use and occasional mishaps ensures that your investment lasts for years without losing its charm.


Trends come and go, but timeless dinnerware never goes out of style.
Opting for classic designs and neutral colors ensures that your dinnerware remains relevant and versatile, regardless of changing trends in home decor.
We always recommend white; its classic, clean and fresh. And the ultimate in timelessness. 

White Bone China?

In the vast landscape of dinnerware options, white bone china stands out as timeless classics.
Here's why they deserve a place in your cabinet:


Despite its (sometimes) delicate appearance, white bone china is exceptionally durable. It is fired at high temperatures, resulting in a non-porous surface that resists chipping, cracking, and staining.
This durability ensures that your dinnerware remains pristine even after years of use.


White bone china seamlessly complements any table setting or decor style. Whether you're hosting a formal dinner party or enjoying a casual meal with family, these versatile options elevate the presentation of your food without overshadowing it.


There's an undeniable elegance to white bone china that transcends fashion. The subtle sheen and translucent quality of bone china adds a touch of sophistication to any dining experience, making even the simplest meals feel special.

Investing in Quality Dinnerware

Choosing the right dinnerware is an investment in both style and functionality.
By selecting durable, timeless pieces like white bone china, you're not just enhancing your dining experience; you're also ensuring that your investment pays off in the long run. Quality dinnerware adds value to your home and becomes a cherished part of your everyday rituals and special occasions.

White bone china is a little more expensive than porcelain and stoneware for example, but this investment pays off in the long term.

Bone china looks better longer and just lasts longer.


In conclusion, the decision to invest in quality dinnerware goes beyond mere aesthetics‚ÄĒit's a commitment to enhancing your dining experience and adding value to your home. By prioritizing factors such as durability, timelessness, and material, and opting for classic options like simple white bone china, you can enjoy elegant table settings for years to come.
