How To Choose The Right Plate Sizes

“To make your table setting really attractive, mixing and matching plate sizes can help add more interest and depth to your tabletop.”

There are many things to consider when buying new tableware. As well as deciding what patterns and colors to buy, it’s a good idea to consider what sizes and shapes of plates you want to have in your table setting.

What size plates should I buy?

Let’s begin with a few of the basics:


What size is a dinner plate?

Generally, the dinner plates are 26-28cm in size. As we know that the dinner plate is the star of the tabletop. Whether you’re laying a white base, such as Earth or Snow series, or your tastes are more colorful, the dinner plate would be the focal point of your table setting.

What size is a side plate?

Side plates are fantastic for injecting different colors and textures into your table setting and provide a versatile dish for serving side dishes and freshly-baked bread. Our side plates are 15 – 23cm in size.

What size is a saucer?

Saucers can be used for more than just an accompaniment to a teacup. In the meantime, these miniature plates are perfect for adding another pop of color to your table and can be used as a miniature side plate, or for serving small cakes and sweet treats after the main meal. Generally, our saucers are 12 – 16cm in size.

What size is a bread and butter plate?

A bread and butter plate can be used instead of, or alongside, a side plate to add even more options to your table decor. Serve freshly-baked bread or other side dishes on these versatile plates. Our bread and butter plates are 20 – 29cm in size.

What size is a serving platter?

The perfect centerpiece for showcasing your delicious foods, the serving platter is a showstopping piece to have on your table. Our serving platters are 23 – 35cm in size.

What size is a serving tray?
