Handmade dinner bowls are still a trend, and it’s easy to see why. They’re beautiful, functional and perfect for any occasion. But with so many choices, it can be challenging to pick just the right one for the home. So how do Australians choose which handmade ceramic bowls are right for them?
With the boom in handmade ceramics continuing to rise in Australia, many customers are now tapping into ceramic bowls’ elegance and functionality. With that being said, here are some things to consider before making the final choice:
- Who Will Be Using The Bowls?
This is a big question to ask and one that can have an impact on all the buying decisions. If Australians buy dinner bowls for young children, they might need to consider something with a smooth surface. For example, some ceramics can be very rough against the teeth—a texture that may not bother an adult but could hurt children’s sensitive gums and mouths.
2. Size Of The Bowl:
If customers are looking for dinnerware for adults or children older than five years old, then it’s important to consider the size. For example, if someone is going to be eating out of these bowls every day for their entire life span (which would be about 80 years), then making sure they’re large enough so that there isn’t any spillage would help ensure that the person doesn’t get food on their clothing! And finally, if they buy dinnerware simply because it looks nice on the kitchen table or living room shelf, they should think about colour options!
3. How Many Sets Do People Need?
If it’s a large family or if hosts plan to serve many people at once, it’s worth considering how many sets of bowls they’ll need. If customers are serving everyone from the same set of dishes, then one set will suffice. However, if the family eats at different times (say in shifts) and often has guests over for dinner parties and get-togethers where food needs to be passed around from person-to-person multiple times throughout the evening, then having multiple sets might help prevent cross-contamination.
4. What Do People Often Eat?
When buying handmade dinner bowls, it is important to consider what kind of food people will be served in them. A salad bowl may be more appropriate if Australians eat mostly salads than a bowl for soup or cereal. If they have kids who prefer soups, then look for an option with a handle on the inside of the bowl so that their little hands don’t get burned.
It’s also important to take into account how many people will be eating at one time—and whether they’re going through phases where they’ll want different kinds of meals over time (like toddlers learning about new foods).
5. Where Do People Want To Display Their Bowls?
When people shop for handmade ceramic bowls, they must consider where they will display them. If they want to keep them in a cabinet or on a shelf, make sure they will fit. Suppose they have a large collection of bowls. In that case, however, it may be worth considering investing in a special display case that can hold everything together neatly—or at least make it easy for guests and visitors to see what kinds of sets or patterns are available. If the collection is small enough (or if they don’t mind mixing various sizes), then there are lots of ways that these beautiful handmade ceramic objects can live out in the open around the home:
- Displaying one bowl on its own makes an elegant statement and is useful for serving food at parties or potlucks.
- Place several matching bowls side by side on one surface, like a kitchen countertop, so they’re easy to grab when needed and also look nice enough for display!
