Gaetane. Curio Cabinet. September 30th , 2017.
Curio Cabinets are decorative pieces of furniture meant to store your collectibles, memorabilia, and other valuables. They are often ornately designed and well crafted. Curio Cabinets are usually distinctive pieces of furniture in many homes; they can generally be described as tall, narrow pieces, with glass doors for showcasing your valuables. Traditional Curio Cabinets are designed with the utmost detail with classic lines and decorative accents. More modernized curio cabinets tend to use straighter, sharper lines and will look great in any home with the same direction in design.
There are a lot of different kinds of these cabinets that would suit any type of house whether it is modern, traditional, or classic because these cabinets are available in many different designs. Some designs would match a modern house while others would best be suited in old houses. According to types, these display cabinets also vary. It may be a standard wall curio, corner curio, console tables, hanging curios, or miniature curios. Depending on your type of display and the purpose, the option is yours on what you will choose from a number of choices. Tall wall curios or corner curios are usually found in the living area. While large rectangular curios are usually found in the kitchen. Hanging curios may be used in offices or rooms.
Begin selecting the objects you desire to exhibit before going to a nearby local furniture shop to get your cabinet. Choosing on the items you want to place on view will surely make it simpler for you to choose the most suited cabinet design among the many of choices. Stick to the fact that putting in objects that do not mix well with the trend of these kind of cabinets can make the corner area look even more unpleasant. You really have to take your present furnishings into consideration unless your home has an assorted style. Picture out how a certain cabinet would appear next to the present fixtures in the area. The cabinet should somehow mix well with the overall theme of that particular room. Luckily, because of the choices of alternatives you wont have a difficult time looking through around for the suited match.
Corner type glass panels are one of my favorites: these are designed to fit securely in a corner, making them unobtrusive and taking up relatively little space in a room. Their biggest drawback is that they dont have much room for bulky items, but they are perfect for displaying small curiosities. Their shapes are rarely just a square. More often, they will have two sides made to fit snugly into a room corner, and the exposed side can be anything from another flat angle (making the cabinet a triangle) or rounded off to maximize room for your displays.
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.
