Plate wall gallery is a cheerful and original idea for decorating an empty wall. A colorful and eye-catching way to show off your unique souvenir collection from faraway holiday destinations, or meaningful family heirlooms pieces. With a good dose of creativity and inspirational pictures from our tutorial on how to hang plates on the wall, your wall will look fab in no time.
Creating a plate wall is such a creative process, are so many options of color schemes, patterns, and arrangements you can create. Much depends on the size and shape of your wall and how many plates you wish to hang.
In order to choose the best arrangement for your wall and help you visualize the overall result, we suggest you make some paper cutouts of your plates and place them onto your wall using some masking tape. You can also number them so it’s easy to identify them later on.
Keep arranging and rearranging the paper cutouts until you get the layout that best suits your space. It might take a while to get the perfect balance, and to work out the right distance between plates. I usually leave them on the wall overnight to see how they look the day after with a fresh mind. So lets take a look at some inspirational pictures to find a layout that best fit your space.
You don’t need to have a huge collection of plates, six or seven are enough to fill up a small wall or a corner, make sure you space them out a little more so to cover the entire area available.
A good starting point is to place a large plate in the middle and then work your way around it. Alternate small and large plates so to balance out the composition and model them to your desired shape.
If your wall is quite long you might like this wavy patter idea. Start by using a large place as a central point and then create the waves on either side by placing plates at different heights to create movement. This is a great impact layout and you wont need to place anything else on your wall.
Rattan plates make an awesome wall gallery too, best if located in a rustic/ethnic or tropical style interior. They add depth and texture to your space, with warm natural tones and charming hand-woven details surely they will not go unnoticed!
