How to Choose a Drinking Glasses Set That Reflects Your Style

It is the small things that can make the biggest difference. Surely you’ve heard that saying before. It’s the smile from a stranger or someone holding the door open for you just as you’re rushing in with a bunch of bags in your hands. This is much the same when it comes to your home design, including something as small as drinking glass.

You see, drinking glasses are not small at all (sure, in stature compared to a dining room table, of course) but their impact and lasting impressions are great. There are many different drinking glasses out there, it is important that you find one that represents your style best. 

Identify Your Style Preferences

Think about what it is that you want and the message that you want to convey through your glassware. There are many different routes that you can go, so choose one or two that suit your mood and the parties that you throw. If you are someone who prefers something more dainty and elegant, then you might opt for a rather thin glass and perhaps even one that has some dents in it.

Having glasses with texture is a great addition to design. Furthermore, you could go for something more quirky if that’s your style. Think about glasses that have patterns drawn onto them, such as little cherries or lemons. This could be a a great addition to a lovely breakfast, a pretty glass with oranges on it, for the orange juice.

You could also go with something more robust if that is what you prefer. A double walled glass or a thickly laid glass with a strong base is another option. You could find a glass that has its own character due to its size or shape. There are so many different options you could look at when finding your next drinking glasses set so just be sure to pick the one that resonates most with your personal style.

Balance Between Daily Use and Special Occasions

This is a big one to remember. You need to know what you want to use your glass for so that you pick the right one. There are many different occasions that call for different glassware and you need to be prepared. 

If you are hosting a small gathering, you might want to opt for glass cups that are a bit fancier, so that they suit the overall look and feel of the event. If you plan on having some champagne or making some delicious-looking cocktails, then opting for a thin flute shape in glass cups is a good first step. If however, you simply plan on having a very casual lunch with friends and you don’t feel the need to impress, then simple drinking glasses will do.

Don’t forget that regardless of the event, you need to have additional water glasses, as no table is complete without its own set of water glasses. These tend to be less attractive in design but if you find the right supplier, they do not need to be, they can also be very pretty.

The only thing about water glasses is that they need to be sturdy as people will most likely be drinking out of these the most throughout the night.

The Joy of Mixing and Matching

There’s no rule that all your glassware must match. The beauty of curating your collection is the freedom to mix various styles of drinking glasses, creating a versatile and inviting table setup. Begin with a basic assortment for daily needs and progressively introduce pieces that captivate you.

Whether it’s a colorful set of tumblers for a casual lunch or sophisticated stemmed glasses for an elegant dinner, mixing it up enables you to periodically rejuvenate your table décor without the need for a complete makeover.

Simply put together the pieces that you feel work and then you will have a lovingly adorned table, filled with the glassware that you hand-picked with care and attention.
