Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
In the modern times curio cabinets have been used to protect valuables and collectibles which are most likely part of every home. Curios are one of the nicest furniture pieces that every family that values displaying their different collections invests in one. Here are some of the reasons why you need one for your own home. It can protect your collections. Compared to when you simply just display your small valuables on top of a table there is a bigger tendency that it will be knocked-off by someone as to when it is inside a protective case. Especially if you have children in your home or if you have frequent visitors you have to be extra protective of your precious collections as the possibility that someone touches your things accidentally is greater when your things are exposed out in the open air.
If you have a collection of smaller books you can stack books and use them as bookends for taller books. I would stack them with the bindings out so you can read their titles; and put taller books upright in graduated heights from tallest to shortest or tallest in the center and tapering off to shortest on each end. Add some of your objects d art among your books like colorful vases pots or figurines; this is especially effective if you have travel books and objects from the region the books depict. Inserting pictures paintings and the like is also a good idea to add color and interest. These inserts will help with elevations of your display for instance a taller vase alongside a shorter sized grouping of books or a short vase on top of a short stack of books next to a taller line up of books.
The last step is to dry the glass with fresh paper towels wiping the glass in a back and forth movement. Confirm to make certain all of the wood is dust-free and all of the glass is free of smudges and fingerprints before putting your cleaning products away. Throw away the used paper towels. Maintaining curio clean and protected will make certain its high quality look for many many years to come. Curio cabinets come in many varieties that there is always a design that would match any style of a room in any type of house or office. Because of the function ability of these types of cabinets they are not anymore limited for antiques and old houses as they used to be found.
