Most of us have learned our whole lives that we’re supposed to keep our food on our plate. The only exception I saw growing up was at my grandmother’s house, or the occasional antique store; they had plates on their walls without any food at all! There are great ways to decorate using plates that have become super chic and modern. So don’t write it off and check out these seven ways to decorate your walls with plates.
Some people may not know where to begin when putting plates on their wall. Whether you’re going for a symmetrical look or a more abstract look, start with a basic layout. You do not need to stick to it completely, but it’ll help you get a good start.
Opting for dishes that are the same, but in different colors lets you play around a bit more. You don’t have to worry about any one looking out of place because they all match. This gives you a little more freedom to get creative in your placement.

If you have a favorite set of dishes, take a couple you won’t be dining with and use them on the wall. It’ll tie everything together wonderfully.
If your dishes have fun and colorful patterns they will definitely stand out making your wall look so fun.
Don’t be afraid of using vintage dishes. It’s all about how you arrange them that’ll keep them feeling modern and exciting.
Breakable dishes aren’t the only kinds that look great on walls either! These baskets utilize the same concept, but show off another playful side.

Plates don’t only have to go on accent walls or over a piece of furniture. If you have a corner of a room that you feel needs some sprucing, consider a wall of plates.
