Display dishes in the traditional way...in a hutch. This is a great opportunity to showcase a collection of pieces.
In the laundry, a kitchen canister set or a group of cookie jars makes handy storage for such essentials as powdered laundry soap.
A pretty bowl makes excellent soap storage near a soaking tub.
Open dish storage creates a sculptural, artistic display in a kitchen or dining area.
A wall display of plates becomes unexpected when created in a bold color such as black.
A bowl makes a perfect planter or vase for a tabletop display such as the one in this photo.
Floating shelves give the idea of displaying dishes more of a modern edge.
