Pottery is elegant, diverse and quite the attractive addition to any part of your home. The kitchen is no exception as it can also benefit from the addition of pottery in a variety of ways. If you are new or are unfamiliar with the many uses of pottery in the kitchen, here are just a few of them to help you out.
The most common use of pottery in the kitchen is dinner and cookware and here are a few ways you can incorporate pottery into your collection:
From small to large, ceramic bowls are great for serving food and can really come in handy from day to day use to special occasions. Not all foods can be eaten from ceramic bowls however, and it is best to know which foods work best. Salads and soups are perfect for serving in large bowls while smaller bowls are best when used to serve things like ice cream and chopped nuts.
Pottery bowls tend to be more environmentally safe compared to other types of bowls, and they tend to have no harmful chemicals or materials that interact with food to put your health in jeopardy. The only problem is that pottery bowls can take up quite a bit of space and perhaps not store as conveniently, as say, plastic bowls.
With that said, pottery bowls can be quite colorful and will likely brighten up your kitchen cabinets and make them more attractive. They also look appealing when stacked together with other pottery such as plates, mugs, etc.
Much like bowls, ceramic plates are vibrant, elegant and healthier to eat from. These are perfect for special occasions and often come as part of sets with cups, saucers, mugs, bowls etc., giving your cabinet an elegant, more sophisticated look. One of the best uses for pottery plates in the kitchen is to hang them on the wall as decorative ornaments.
Arranging a set of different sized, same colored plates on your kitchen wall is sure to give it an elegant touch. The only drawback is that they can be fragile and should always be handled with care. It’s probably best to keep pottery plates away from the clumsier members of the house.
Even the kitchen is in need of decoration and pottery vases are the perfect fit for the job. They come in different sizes, shapes, designs, and colors and can be used to hold bright colored plants and flowers that add life to your kitchen. Pottery can also be used to hold utensils such as wooden spoons and spatulas etc.
Pottery is quite handy in the kitchen and has been used for years, from plates to decorative vases. It is relatively cheap and convenient to use and comes in different colors that spice up dull rooms.
