Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
If these cabinets are intended for display purposes and you want it to be the focal point of the room usually it would store collectibles antique pieces tiny porcelain vases figurines breakable decors souvenirs from travels etc. Glass curio cabinets make a good furniture piece to hold your valuable collectibles and protect it from dirt or breakage. Some curio cabinets have lighting effects and mirrors inside to enhance the display. Contents should be displayed according to color and sizes. Wall curios could also be used in dinning areas or the kitchen. They also make good cabinets for storage of plates wine glasses and other kitchen wares.
It is always better if it faces the main entrance of the room. After you have identified in which nook it belongs and after you have decorated the insides of the curio cabinet the next thing to do is put accent pieces around the room. For example if your cabinet is not too tall you can accentuate it with a mirror above or you can put vases or other decors above it. If the cabinet is lean and tall on the other hand you can put other furnitures beside it like a chair or a smaller table. A wall curio cabinet is a furniture piece especially designed to keep your valuable pieces protected and free of dust saving you time in cleaning and keeping your valuables out of the childrens reach.
These are not the only places where this furnishing would be a nice fit and some of the other areas you could put one include at the end of a hallway in an entertainment area in a den and even in a bedroom if chose to. Not only are curio cabinets practical but they also have a wonderful appearance and would really enhance the décor of any room. What makes them pleasing to the eye is how they are styled in a number of stunning ways. Like you can purchase ones that have a very antique look to them filled with ornamentation and scrollwork. Or you can get something that is the complete opposite of that in modern options that have a very streamlined look with clean lines.
