Displaying a collection

I’ve recently started collecting green Bordallo Pinheiro plates and serving pieces. I’ve filled a cabinet in the living room, and backed it with a gold print fabric to brighten the interior and show them off better. I’ve also put some of them in a plate rack in my kitchen, but have a few more pieces left over that won’t fit. I’m considering covering the back of the plate rack in a similar way.

The real question is where to put additional plates. I thought of hanging them on the wall on each side of the kitchen plate rack. Not sure if this would look weird.

Also thought of adding another shallow plate rack to the wall around the corner for more display space. Problem is that this is the first thing you see from the front entry hall when you go toward the kitchen end, and also the wall is adjacent to a step-down into the pantry and back foyer areas. Could possibly be a hazard/in the way when negotiating the corner and step. Currently have two prints there.

To add to my confusion, I also have a plate rack in the dining room with more Bordallo. Could possibly add some on a wall in there.

Appreciate any advice/ideas on this.
