Decorative Plates To Hang On Wall

There are few things more charming and retro than decorative plates to hang on your wall. But these are not your grandmother’s hanging plates. Only one or two of these plates resemble the cherished plates that once hung on walls in pioneer homes or in dusty cottages of the early frontier settlements. These are artworks intended to be displayed, not used on a table or part of a table setting.

Multi-Plate Displays

Tie your room décor together with a coordinated multi-plate arrangement. A few are available as sets of individual plates, but more are already arranged with a metal framework, ready to hang on your wall. The plates that are not yet arranged, have a coordinated theme and sometimes come with their own hangers so you don’t have to rely on the hardware plate hangers.

Metal Plates

Metal plates are a bit safer for wall hanging than ceramic plates. They are less likely to be damaged if a hanger gives way and sends them crashing to the floor. More than that, baked enamel is a superb way to add bold colors that do not fade easily to your kitchen or dining room areas. Ranging from artsy arrangements of galvanized tin to art deco unique designs, metal plates make a bold statement on your walls.

Securing Ceramic Plates

If you like to collect plates, then you might want to secure ceramic plates. There is no finer way to do it than to use one of the metal frames, similar to the plate sets shown here. By using a framework, you can shift plates from your collection in and out without having to deal with changing wall fixtures. Failing that, individually manufactured clips are sold in many art and craft shops expressly for the purpose of hanging wall plates. Below you will find ten examples of hanging wall plates. The variety and type of plate is almost infinite, so you have an excellent chance of finding the plate or plates that suit your interior decorating theme. You can use the plates to commemorate events or travel, or you can use them to dream a little about other places and other climates.

Its color shades subtly from clear to yellow to a blue-green that puts one in mind of water. Stripes of green, resembling seaweed or water grass, run through it.
