Placemat Perfection

After a long day at work, school or keeping up the home, the one place that typically centers the family is at the dinner table.

Those few precious moments amidst a hectic day where connection happens, conversation flows, and memories are made over a meal. These moments are short and fleeting, so why not make them even more memorable over beautifully hand-crafted placemats!

There are so many elements that placemats bring to your table from color (whether calming and neutral or bold and colorful), texture, and functionality. (bye-bye stains and crumbs!)

Do I Really Need Placemats?

Of course, it’s possible to enjoy a meal without them, but why risk the possibility of stains, crumbs and a bland setting? They are such an easy decorative accessory that requires zero prep or creativity. You can even change them up seasonally to bring in different colors and styles throughout the year. If you’re entertaining, they can serve as a great conversation starter and will add a touch of elegance for your guests. They are also the perfect vessel to hide impurities of your table that may have formed over the years! Perhaps you have some cracks, ring marks from glasses or heaven forbid ink/marker stains. Just throw some placemats on top and no one has to see them! We would be remiss to not mention the obvious benefit, which is to serve the functional purpose of catching the stains and spills so that your table doesn’t!

Will They Last?

One of the biggest points of contention when researching and picking placemats is making sure to choose something that you not only find attractive, but that has durability and longevity. Those high-end, intricately designed placemats that carry a high price tag sure are tempting….until you remember that one spill of spaghetti sauce will have it ruined in an instant. This is where UASHMAMA placemats have totally changed the game. Created from our sustainably made washable paper, our placemats are hand washable! When spills happen, you can wash our placemats in the sink with warm water and mild dish soap. Let them dry and they will be good as new. We offer multiple varieties of placemats; some more durable than others, that are also heat & stain resistant, so be sure to read through our descriptions to determine the best style based on your needs.

What Shape Should I Choose?

There’s no right or wrong answer to this. Some of it should be determined by the size and shape of your table.   You do want them to fit and arrange nicely, however a lot of it comes down to personal preference. UASHMAMA offers numerous shapes including square, round, oval and rectangle. You can really get creative by layering different shapes and colors together as well. For example, take one of our rectangle or square shaped placemats in a nice neutral color such as cachemire or gray and layer our LACEMAT on top, in a beautiful deep blue color. Now you’ve got depth, texture, colors and a big statement!

Whether you continue to elevate your table with other elements like candles, greenery or pottery is up to you, but at the very least treat yourself to some good placemats. You can shop our extensive collection HERE where you’ll find plenty of textures, shapes and colors to suit every season of the year! Tag us in your Instagram photos @uashmama.usa with #Uashmamastyle.
