88 Deviceful Dinner Plates

From Dinner Plate Poetry to Peelable Dinner Plates

— July 15, 2013 — Art & Design
Many people overlook the decor value behind dinner plates, but the truth is there's a lot of design potential to incorporate different decorating taste into your dishware to subtly enhance your home.

Depending on the overarching design theme of your home, your choice of dinner plates can give your kitchen or dining room a simple face-lift that doesn't break the budget. For those with an eclectic taste, handwritten dish designs are a creative way to add a literary flare to your dishware collection. For those who enjoy humor, maybe the duct tape dishes are more up your alley. Not only are dinner plates a great design element, they can also be multi-functional like diet dividing plates that help people properly portion their food.
