Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
It will have an enclosed interior area surrounded by glass that is usually accessible by either a front glass door or a side glass door. Inside there will be shelves and generally the interior area will have a mirrored back. Sometimes the shelves will be adjustable and other times they will be stationary. Either way they provide you with a spectacular place to showcase your things which is way better than keeping them hidden in a stuffy basement. The nice thing about curio cabinets is that they are available in all sorts of styles. That way you can easily find just the right one to put in your living space. And speaking of living space one would really be a great addition to any room in your home and not just the living room.
How you decorate it or where you put it will determine its purpose. If your goal is for it to become the focal point of the room then display it in a way that it catches attention the moment anyone goes inside the room. Do you collect some kind of figurine like Cherished Teddies or Snow babies? If so where do you store them? Of course you purchase them to not only have something to collect but to show off to friends and family as a monument of your commitment to the collection. One of the things that you can get is a curio cabinet. Curio cabinets stand tall and proud and usually are made of wood and glass so that you can easily display your art or a collection that you take pride in.
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.
