Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
The next step is to wipe the wood of the curio cabinet; you must begin in the inside of the cabinet with the dusting cloth. If you decide not to get rid of your objects move them aside or lift them as you dust under and around them. Wipe in a gentle rubbing motion using more furniture spray if needed. The fifth step is to polish the outside wood of the cabinet by rubbing in a rounded motion with the dusting cloth and furniture dusting polish spray. Maintain the wood moistened with the spray so the cloth glides over the wood with no abrasiveness. The next step is to spray window cleaner onto the glass doors (and glass shelves if your curio has them) and make use of the paper towels to wipe in a rounded motion the inside and the outside of the glass.
It is suggested however that you pick those with doors to avoid dust from your display to set. In addition if you have kids or pets in your house think about strapping the glass sides of your curio cabinet with a lock to avoid stuffs from breaking and falling. Apart from these design considerations you can as well think about getting a curio cabinet with a mirrored back for visual vastness feeling particularly if your living room has limited space. The mirror does not just reveal the light in the room but also helps give an all-around vision of the stuffs showcased in the cabinet. To make cleaning simpler such as dusting and vacuuming consider setting up casters under the cabinet.
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.
