Can I purchase tableware at Spotlight?
Yes, you can. The right tableware can transform a space or table setting, so it is worth spending some time deciding on your perfect tableware. Of course, you may decide to have several sets of tableware, one for daily use, one for more formal or larger occasions, and one for use outdoors, for instance. You can opt for a formal matching tableware set, or choose fun and contemporary colours and designs that you can mix and match. The possibilities are endless and will depend on your taste, décor and budget.
What should I consider when choosing tableware?
With so many designs to choose from, it's easy to get carried away by our tableware collections. Before you start selecting your new dinnerware service, be sure to consider the following factors:
- Check the size of your cupboard so you know what size plates will fit inside. Likewise, if you have a dishwasher or want to store your plates on a plate rack, you’ll need to make sure they aren’t too large to fit.
- Check to see what's included in the set - are the mugs or cups the right size, do you want pasta or salad bowls, what about serving dishes?
- Decide on your ideal number of place settings - how many people will you be catering for now and in the future?
- Decide whether you want china, stoneware or other material for your tableware.
- It's a good idea to check that the tableware you are interested in isn't discontinued or about to be. You don't want to be stuck with part of a set or be unable to replace chipped or broken items.
- Dishwasher and microwave safe – for tableware that is in constant use, it is important that you can put it in the dishwasher and/or the microwave without worrying so check before buying.
What else is included in the range?
Instead of cruet sets (salt and pepper) that match the tableware, many people use salt, pepper and spices that come in disposable containers these days. A large range of pepper and alt mills, spices and seasonings ideal for use at the table or outdoor near the BBQ is also featured in the range.
