There are few things more charming and retro than decorative plates hanging on your wall. But these aren’t your grandmother’s hanging plates. Only one or two of these plates resemble the prized plates that once hung on the walls in pioneer houses or in the dusty houses of the early border settlements. These are works of art intended to be displayed and are not used for a table or part of a table setting.
Tie your room decoration together with a coordinated multi-panel arrangement. Some are available as sets of individual panels, but others are already arranged with a metal frame ready to hang on your wall. The panels that are not already arranged have a coordinated theme and sometimes come with their own hangers so you don’t have to rely on the hardware panel hangers.
Metal plates are a little safer than ceramic plates for wall hanging. They are less likely to be damaged if a hanger gives way and drops them on the floor. Additionally, baked enamel is a great way to add bold colors that won’t fade easily in your kitchen or dining room. From artistic arrangements made of galvanized pewter to unique Art Deco designs, metal plates make a bold statement on your walls.
Secure ceramic plates
If you want to collect plates, you may want to secure ceramic plates. There’s no better way than using one of the metal frames, similar to the plate sets shown here. With the help of a frame, you can slide panels in and out of your collection without having to worry about changing wall fixings. Otherwise, many arts and crafts stores sell custom-made clips specifically for hanging wall panels. Below are ten examples of hanging wall panels. The variety and type of plates is almost unlimited, so you have an excellent chance of finding the plate or plates that go with your interior design theme. You can use the signs to remember events or trips, or you can use them to dream a little about other places and different climates.

Nothing says land like dish tubs and milk devices from days gone by.

Glass wall panel

Day at the Beach 9-piece wall decor
Do you remember that wonderful day at the beach or dream of going there with this nine piece wall decoration. Each plate is pierced in two places to allow for a leather strap for hanging.

This hand-painted plate is shown in bold colors and shows Francisco Guerrero’s “Women of the Andes”. Three women are shown in silhouettes wearing the traditional hats and scarves worn by women in this region. Each woman is shown with an ola, a large clay pot, and a basket in the center of the grouping.
