Plates can be used directly on the wall, on shelves or in a rack placed on the wall. They can also be placed on a fireplace mantel or in a display case.
A popular way to use plates for decor is by creating a collage of plates on the wall. Use different, unique plates of varying sizes, or go with a single artisan or style for the collage. Plates can also be arranged by color or shape, and a group of special-edition or collector plates can be displayed together for maximum effect. A china cabinet is another great way to display your favorite pieces.
