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.
Some cabinets have a better reputation and a better purpose than other cabinets. I like having a cabinet that is functional and beautiful at the same time. This is not always easily accomplished. I know that I have a ton of those knick knacks that are forever popular. I store them in number of the curio cabinets that I have in my home. Of course some of these beauties are more useful than others; some are better constructed than others. How do you find the perfect curio cabinet? Well that answer is not always an easy one. For instance some curio cabinets are antique and cost a small fortune although they may not look like they should be worth that much.
There are many great ideas about decorating and remodeling but it is not often that you come across one piece of furniture that is so versatile it can be integrated into pretty much any décor. Curio Cabinets are one such piece of furniture. Think about it it is something that comes in so many different styles it is appropriate just about anywhere. Really there are a slew of style options that you can pick from including those that have a sleek modern appearance to others that are very country like featuring beautiful distressed finishes and you can even get options that are more on the vintage side and have a lovely antique look to them.
