Using dishes as part of your decor can be a great way to infuse color, patterns, or shapes into a room. But I think it is easy to get stuck in a rut of thinking of only a couple ways to display them. So to give you guys some other ideas – here a ten great ways to display dishes.
1. Use an unconventional piece
This old barbershop rack is a great example of a way to use something unconventional as a great display piece.
2. Use some modern bookcases
I love the use of these Ikea bookshelves to create functional and decorative storage. Not to mention that a couple of these won’t break the bank either!
3. Use an open rack
These white racks are classic and are a great way to display some of your favorite heirlooms.
4. Use just a hutch
Don’t have room for a full hutch and buffet? How about mounting just the top piece straight to the wall? I love this idea!
5. Mount a vintage plate rack
I love this little plate rack! The hooks for mugs are the perfect little touch.
6. Leave them out on a rolling cart
This cart is completely functional but also makes a great display piece!
7. Just mount them on the wall
Yep – probably one of the more traditional ways to display dishes – but you don’t knock a classic!
8. Hang shelves from the ceiling
This is a great way to use some “dead” space in a room, create a divider, add storage, and provide a beautiful display place! Great use all around!
9. Fill up a cupboard
Sometimes just a simple cupboard can be the perfect place to display some dishes. I love how the top of this piece had the panels on the doors replaced with some chicken wire!
10. Use open shelving
Low open shelving can sometimes make the most beautiful and functional display space. I love how this wraps around the wall here.
