Using Decorative Plates For Kitchen Wall Décor

For vibrant and interesting kitchen wall décor, I like to use colorful plates and platters or other porcelain. You can hang them with simple spring hangers, fancy scrolly hangers that are part of the décor themselves, or even ribbon hanging from fancy hooks or knobs in the wall.

This can also be a great way to save money on your kitchen wall décor since you can buy the plates at flea markets, yard sales or discount stores. I like to buy antique plates, platters, and tureen covers that have a little hairline crack or chip in them since you can get them dirt cheap and no on will ever notice the flaw! Try to pick ones that have a matching pattern or theme - like all flow blue plates or all white ironstone with different shapes or maybe a theme of bright flowers or birds.

When hanging the plates, you will have to first decide how many plates and the types of hangers you want to use. Once you have the plates and hangers on hand, experiment by holding them up to the wall to see where you might like them to be placed. It helps if you have another person that can hold them so you can stand back and see how they look.

Place your kitchen wall décor plates in even groupings or rows. Some times if you have a whole wall to fill, working from the inside out helps to get them in an even pattern on the wall. You can try laying them out on the floor first to see how it will look since once you start putting holes in the wall you won't want to move things around too much! Try to keep an odd number of plates in a group and keep to a geometric pattern like a circle or triangle.

Some interesting places to hang plates as kitchen wall décor are:

  • Over doorways or windows
  • On the wall between the cabinets and counter
  • In any small spot where other wall décor won't fit
