There is a good reason that the plates have been used as wall decoration for generations. In addition to the fact that plates put in new and smart ways have become trendy, the plates also have the huge advantage that the dust they collect can easily be washed off and often your plates can be thrown in the dishwasher and they are like new again! Just without dust mites and dirt.
With the plates you have the opportunity to put them together for a wall decoration according to your ideas. It does not matter what the motives on the plates are, as you can simply go for the colors and put them together to suit them. The very best thing is that you have the opportunity to buy many plates at a really cheap price, so your wall decoration does not have to be expensive at all. You can make it look unique without spending a fortune!

Here is a mix of different Christmas plates, anniversary plates, etc. - Different sizes of plates have been used, where the theme is that each plate is selected from the fact that it means something special. The plates are set up in an asymmetrical manner at first sight, but on closer inspection, there is symmetry in the setup. When you want to make such a "random setup" it is important to get the balance between the big and small plates and the spaces between the plates right. It can be very hard to see if it looks good before it is up. With some cardboard slices in the same sizes, you can glue them on the wall and move them around until you have just the right pattern. - That way you can make it look random in a cool way ... and not use the hammer and nails before you know the exact pattern.
