Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
Some designs are modern while some are ethnic looking and others look elegant and classic. If you want the cabinet to be the main attraction in the room then you should display it in an area where it is easily seen and you should decorate it with tiny little collectibles or large intricately designed pieces to magnify more attention. When you want the cabinet to be the focal point of a room the first thing you should do is to identify what sort of items you will put inside. Examples if you will decorate it with tiny figurines then you dont really need a big cabinet. A tall glass curio cabinet with glass shelves will workout well. If you plan to put bigger pieces on the other hand you have to consider getting a cabinet that is bigger in size.
Whatever you display inside your curio cabinet depends on where you put it or what its purpose is. Traditionally wall curio cabinets where commonly found in old houses. And usually antiques and jewelry were its common displays and the designs would only accent traditional houses. But throughout time a lot of designs and innovations have been made that these cabinets have become more flexible design wise and purpose wise. Now there are cabinets that would match any room design whether it be contemporary modern classic or traditional. This furniture piece is big enough but at the same time it doesnt consume much space. For this reason a number of different items can be stored in it depending on how you want it to serve its purpose where you put it or what the style of your house is and how you would want to accentuate it.
Allow your personality to be reflected in this piece so later generations will not only use it but also cherish it. You started collecting dolls and other decorative figurines when you were a kid. And you still have them to this day but they are stuck in a box in your basement. Well nows the time to dust them off and put them on display and curio cabinets give you the perfect way to do just that. Really curio cabinets are a fantastic way to show off your precious collectibles. How so? Well just look at their design. Generally one will stand on the ground being around five to six feet high and anywhere from three to even five feet wide.
