You can’t have too many plates, especially when the “Ber” months roll in and you’ll be doing a lot of entertaining ’til New Year’s Eve. But one of the main problems of having a dinnerware collection is how to store those fragile babies. Get the dish on creative china storage by checking out these Instagram pegs:

Under stairs

Graphic

Who says your storage wall has to be a wallflower? These designers painted a graphic, black-and-white pattern on these open shelves as a focal point in the kitchen. (And it would be best to keep your dinnerware monochrome, as well.)

Ornate

Got a fabulous plate and porcelain collection to show off? Then settle only for the very best when it comes to its customized display.

Slide-out drawers

If you want to keep your kitchen streamlined and clean-looking, opt for closed cabinet doors instead of glass-front ones, and have pullout drawers installed. For a similar system, check out Blum.

Repurposed bookshelf

This was an extra bookshelf that the homeowner reused as a china cabinet. Before you stash the plates, get some plate or dish racks to organize it on the shelves.

Rails

In the a11 showroom (which has a display of hundreds of plates), these monochromatic dishes are kept in place on narrow shelves by wooden rails.

Or use plate cases

Afraid you might nick lola’s heirloom plates from the 1950s? Then invest in quilted or fabric plate cases, which will protect your plates from being banged around in storage. You can get similar ones like these at Make Room & More.
