Modern Melamine Crockery Bowls and Sets

Updated on September 8, 2013

How our crockery must change with time?

When you change the interiors of your homes in accordance with the latest style, don’t you think your crockery too must undergo a change in design and style? Today, you can buy crockery that matches your curtains, bed sheets and furniture colors and designs.

Gone are the days when we used to drink tea, milk, juice and the like from the same cup. Today, we have designed tea cups, mugs and juice glasses of fascinating shapes and designs. Now, we serve fried fish on a fish shaped plate, drink fruit juices from glasses with fruit pictures and beer from new beer glasses.

Even the kids demand their own plates having their favorite cartoon pictures on them. Girls love pink Barbie plates and mugs while boys prefer their favorite movie or sports star plates. Some people love plates and mugs with their zodiac sign printed on. There are also people who drink tea from their Arabic style kahva cups’.

Crazy Crockery Suppliers

Crockery craze is ever on the increase; this explains the reason why there are lot of crockery shops and designers. Many are attracted to beautiful flower- print plates and mugs that match their curtain colors. You can even purchase your dinner set matching your kitchen cabinet color.

Frosted glasses and tumblers have beautiful floral images on them. These are produced by scanning the photos of attractive flowers and embossing these on to the glasses and tumblers. Various colors of frosted glasses are available in the market. Most of them are made in China.

Personalized Crockery

You can have personalized drinking glasses or beer mugs having your logo or picture imprinted on them. Plain plates and mugs with dots are in fashion these days. Earlier, it was checked plates and mugs; but these are now out of fashion.

These modern and trendy designed tea pots and plates would make excellent gifts for your friends or relatives for their house warming. You can even gift your child on his or her birthday with a beautiful mug embossed with your child’s favorite cartoon character, or one of his own paintings or may be his own photo!

There are shops where you can suggest your own design and color for your dinner set and mugs; though the cost may be a bit higher.

However, care should be taken to ensure the quality of the melamine crockery sets. Beautiful crockery can be tempting but its quality must not be compromised. Melamine is an organic compound containing formaldehyde and is molded to form plates and cups. They are heat resistant and cannot be recycled. There are questions raised on the safety of using melamine utensils especially for the kids.

Our dining tables are the main family reunion spots of our homes. Bringing some color and style to our crockery surely adds life and magic to our dining tables. These should also be handled with care as they can be fragile.
