Why should I buy a placemat? This might be a question that is running through your mind.
Placemats are not only functional. You can even use them to brighten up your table setting.
I have a placemat for different kinds of holidays like Christmas, Halloween, and Easter. It adds to the festive feeling of the food that I am serving and it is also able to protect my table against dirt and heat and moisture. It is able to cover more utensils than just a basic coaster.
As I have said earlier, there are different kinds of materials used to make a placemat. Each of these materials comes with a certain advantage and disadvantage.
For example, a cotton placemat is great in absorbing moisture and you can wash them in a machine. This means that you can use it for a long period, but they are less resistant to stains and it is prone to wrinkling.
On the contrary, placemats made of synthetic materials like satin or polyester are cheaper and resistant to creasing, but they are not as absorbent as cotton or linen. However, they are also easy to clean because you just need to wipe the stain.
Plastic or vinyl placemats are easy to clean, heat and stain resistant, long lasting, and it is able to give an excellent cushioning. However, they are cheap looking and it is not ideal for a formal setting.
Another material that is commonly used for placemats are bamboo and wood that provide a luxurious vibe to your dining table, but is not as durable because it can attain burn marks from hot pans and pan.
You need to gauge all these considerations and take them into account, but we hope that you will find the perfect placemat for your dining table.
