If you are looking for a cheap and creative way to add color and life into your interior, then look no further than ceramic plates. Rather than turning to expensive art pieces and portraits, you can draw attention to your interior by hanging ceramic plates onto your walls.
For a balanced yet impactful look, your best bet is to opt for a color scheme that is tight, and that relies on a lot of white pieces to help it stand out. Later in this article, we will look at a few tips that can help you create perfect wall decorations whilst using ceramic plates.
White ceramic plates are the perfect choice for decorating your walls, and they won’t cost you a lot of money. Ceramic plates, no matter the color, are generally cheaper than other types of plates and if you are on a really tight budget, you can always purchase some at a flea market or second-hand store and redecorate them yourself.
Before hanging your plates, it is a good idea to create outlines on the wall using butcher paper and painter’s tape. This will give you a clear understanding of how your plates will look once you hang them up and is the perfect moment to play around with different arrangement options, as opposed to maneuvering around ceramic plates that are quite fragile and sometimes heavy.
When you are all set and ready, the next step is to hang your plates on the wall:
You will need to purchase invisible plate hangers in order to support your ceramic plates or there are many tutorials online that can show you how to create your own custom hangers using picture hangers. If you are not a fan of this method, then you can also try sticking paper clips to the back of the plates, forming a hook that can be attached to the wall. There are plenty of online options for you to try and all you have to do is follow the instructions and get the best plan that suits your specific needs.
Once you have attached a hanger to the back of your plates, you can proceed to hang your plates one by one until you have completed your arrangement. One way of doing this, is, starting with one of the bigger plates in the center then hanging smaller plates around it to mimic the design of planets surrounding the sun or moons surrounding bigger planets in the solar system. To be honest, you can decorate the wall as you please and you need not follow conventional or boring patterns.
Decorating your walls with ceramic plates is simple and affordable, and as long as you have the necessary tools, you can play around with as many designs and arrangements as you please. White plates are a favorable option if you are looking to create an impactful look that draws attention to your walls. Take care to ensure that the plates are well hung and not shaky. The last thing you want is for your plates to fall and get damaged or even worse, fall on someone and injure them.
