Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
Like you could spruce up the look of your dining room by putting one in the corner which is also perfect for showing off your fine china. Or you could put one in an entertainment space for a great way to show off sports collectibles like baseballs autographed baseball cards and any other sports memorabilia you might have. In addition to those spots a few other areas in your home you could put one include at the end of a hallway in a foyer area and in a family room. Now on to all the styles that curio cabinets are available in and there are many since they can be made from many types of wood while being finished in a number of lovely ways.
Whatever you want you can get with curio cabinets. All you have to do is open your eyes to the endless possibilities offered with each cabinet. They serve a useful purpose either being decorative or plain. You get a great deal regardless of the price you spend. Curio cabinets just seem to get more beautiful as time goes on. These wonderful creations are amazing and brighten our lives with their beauty grace and ultimate sophistication. I live in a small apartment. A studio apartment to be exact. I have the usual furniture. I have a couch a couple of end tables and a big screen television. I have two cabinets on either side of my TV. Basically with all of my furniture I am short on space and I have some things that I would like to display.
When you are filling a curio cabinet with small collectibles you will want to employ some of the same ideas as with the bookcases. Having a lot of empty space between shelves and displaying only tiny objects is not very interesting. In curios you can make use of a mirrored back wall or a brightly colored back wall that will coordinate with your room and displays or even a wallpapered back wall either a texture or a print that will compliment the arrangement. Consider using display risers for smaller objects that you wish to show off like those you see in department stores. Container stores sell these risers and you can find lucite frame stands in the framing department of craft stores.
