Clarice. Curio Cabinet. September 26th , 2017.
Glass curio cabinets are a nice way to display those little odds and ends that every good collector picks up. While there are dedicated collectors out there that specialize in one or maybe two types of collections, the vast majority of people tend to collect odds and ends from their daily lives. Dedicated collectors often have specialized methods of preserving and displaying their collections, but for those of us who almost randomly and haphazardly pick up anything for display and collection, glass curio cabinets are one of the most attractive ways to organize our assorted memorabilia.
The wall-mounted curio cabinet is usually the smallest with an open front with multiple shelves for small collectibles. This curio is normally a square or diagonal design. These cabinets are usually made of wood with multiple display shelves and both attach to the wall. These cabinets normally do not have the intricate design that may appear in tabletop or floor model curios. Although, they still make for very attractive displays of your collectibles. A tabletop cabinet will be considerably smaller than floor curio cabinets. They normally have one to two shelves for display items and one or two doors in the front of glass, wood or metal. Tabletop models will hold only a few items or if you take out the shelves the curio can be used as a doll display case. They can range in size from eight to sixteen inches wide, six to eight inches deep to eighteen to twenty-eight inches high.
Prices of curios may vary depending on the size, design, kind, or materials used, or a combination of all these factors. But one of the most important things in choosing this kind of cabinet if you want a long lasting furniture is to consider getting a good quality curio cabinet for you to be able to use it for a long time or even pass it on to the next generation. So if you want an instant makeover for your room think of getting a furniture piece that is functional but at the same time stylish and would save you a lot of space. All you need is a wall curio cabinet to artistically put your stuff in order.
Changing sizes between panels to alter the overall shape of the cabinet is another idea. For example, with a centerpiece glass curio cabinet you can use progressively smaller sizes of circular panels the higher up you go to make it look like an archetypical christmas tree, for example, or progressively smaller perfect square layers to make it look like a pyramid. Lastly using stained, etched, or frosted glass panels are just some of the other ideas you can apply. Why limit yourself to regular glass, after all? You can increase the artistic visual appeal of your curio cabinet by using different types of glass. All you need to do is find a local glass worker who you can hire to make specialized panels for your cabinet, and youre good to go.
Is the space amply high and wide? Then you might want to get a traditional, dark cherry curio cabinet with generous measurements of 44W x 17D x 79H inches.If narrower, then a more contemporary curio cabinet with practical urban living measurements of 24W x 12D x 76H inches may be better.If low and wide such as in a family room or den, then a golden oak console curio cabinet measuring 56W x 13D x 30H inches is probably what you need.And if angled in a corner, you may want a curio cabinet that can be snugly placed in a corner and probably measuring around 28W x 16D x 72H inches.
