Romaine. Curio Cabinet. October 12th , 2017.
Free standing counter top curio cabinets are ideal for placing on a mantle or large desk in the living room, family room or office. Lighted curio cabinets are another option for enhancing the look of any room. Not only do you add a wonderful piece to your room, but at the same time you brightly display some of your most prized possessions. Large free-standing curio cabinets are an excellent addition to oversized rooms with open spaces. If your goal is to fill a large open wall area, a curio cabinet can be a welcome addition that will also give you extra storage and display space. Curio cabinets are a timeless and wonderful way to add decorative flair to any room or office. If you are looking to add distinction to your home furniture decor, a consider curio cabinet as a viable option.
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 first question you should ask when buying a curio cabinet is: What kind of curios will I put in it? If it is a tall brass alto saxophone, then you need to get a tall, traditional curio cabinet with fitted glass doors to keep the dust out and with removable glass shelves to make room for your favorite musical instrument.How much light is there at the spot where you are going to put your curio cabinet? Is it in the sunroom with plenty of natural light or is it in a dark corner of the house? If the latter then you need an illuminated cabinet to brighten the corner as well as provide accent lighting to your displays.
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.
Shelf type glass curio cabinets are usually not made entirely of glass, with heavy frames made from a sturdier material and only the actual shelf space made from glass. They are similar in use to wall mount glass cabinets, but are larger and thus able to take heavier items but consequently being bulkier. One thing about shelf type glass curio cabinets that sets them apart from wall mounted ones is that they often come with a pair of sliding glass panels on the front that can be locked to keep your little toys secure. Realistically speaking, this wont deter a determined burglar, who can simply smash in the glass, but these sliding panels go a long way towards keeping your kids and snoopy relatives from casually pawing your collection.
