Decorating with plates on a wall is a unique way to create a beautiful focal point in a room. Instead of using art or pictures, plates can provide an unexpected way to fill a large expanse of wall.You can create a gallery wall by using plates of various shapes, colours and sizes in one cohesive layout. This arrangement looks best with mismatched plates because it adds colour and character—take your pick from florals to geometrics to plains, and from saucers to quarter plates to dinner plates to platters. 

While its size, shape and colour are no bar, just keep in mind not to mix up vintage with modern plates. Hang the vintage ones in one arrangement and modern ones in a separate one.For an edgy and more contemporary look, you can go for a black and white arrangement. Or maybe, even all white. But for that, make sure your wall is painted a deep shade, else there will be no impact. For hanging, you can use traditional metal plate hangers or the invisible disc kind. These are a newer type that can hang the plates without showing any of the metal hardware.
