Bring out your nice crockeryWhile none of us really have a ‘best dinner service’ anymore, in the same way we don’t have ‘best’ front rooms, we do have our own modern version. For many of us, that means putting all your tackiest, chipped mugs to the back of the cupboard and bringing your prettiest ones to the front. Similarly, hosting is an excuse to bring out all those items you own, but rarely use: silver-plated serving spoons, lacquered bowls, snack trays, linen tablecloths, fluted wine glasses… Then there are the gourmet edibles that only see the light of day when people visit: holiday liqueurs, jars of stuffed olives, preserved fruits and posh chocolates featuring ingredients no one really likes, such as lavender or chilli.

Let it goHow many mugs do you have? If, like most of us, you have more than you’ll use at any one time, give yourself permission to let some go. It’s easy to collect crockery, or simply hang on to an item you’ve had for years, just because it’s become part of the kitchen. Try to be objective as you look through your collections and send those you don’t need, don’t like, or think are unsuitable to your local charity shop. If you’re feeling guilty, enlist the help of a friend or find a professional organiser on the Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers’ website.

Display your tablewareReplicate the look of a traditional Welsh dresser by choosing glass-fronted wall units and a wooden plate rack. The displayed crockery here is bright white, which adds a streamlined, modern twist to the country-style kitchen.Why every home should have a glass display cabinet

Ceramic farmhouse and apronA similar style to the butler and Belfast is the French farmhouse sink. Again, these sinks have greater depth than other styles, and the main difference here is French farmhouse sinks are made from a different type of clay, so have thinner “walls”. Some say this contributes to a less chunky, more elegant look. They’re beautiful as well as robust, and are well placed in both modern and traditional homes. This is also true of the apron sink. This version is slightly different from the farmhouse as it’s finished only on the front, rather than on all four sides. With these ceramics, the sink tends to sit further away from the back of the worktop, which makes it a particularly good choice for shorter users, including children. These styles are all considerably more expensive and so a great investment if you plan to keep your sink long-term, but not so much if you’re someone who regularly likes to update and change their kitchen.

Show off your crockeryIt’s a real shame to hide away your attractive tableware collection. Neat little bowls look lovely stacked up on a shelf, and traditional plate racks have a relaxed, homely feel and come in very handy, too. Just make sure that your plates will fit securely in the rack.Check out more creative ways with plates and trays

Smaller sink, closer to the left- perfect coffee/tea station. Mug shelf above instead of plates.
