DIY Plate Rack: The Best Way to Stack Your Plates

Once you become a homeowner you quickly realize how many things inside the home need their own designated space. Finding the proper place to neatly store all the things can be a challenge, especially in the kitchen. Do you just stack all the plates on top of each other or is there a better way to approach this? Take a look at these DIY plate racks and judge for yourself!

5. Mini Plate Rack 


A plate rack doesn’t only have to be a storage solution, it can also double as wall decor.

You can find the instructions at Shanty 2 Chic.

We’re always emphasizing the importance of vertical space in the home and a plate rack is really one of those elements that can bring out the best of your vertical space. Instead of staring into an empty wall, you can rest your eyes on the beautiful selection of your plates! See the building plans at Hymns & Verses.
