Curio Cabinet. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 11:42:59 AM
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.
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.
There are several types of curio cabinets. A typical one is called as a standard wall curio. This type of curio cabinet is generally intended to be placed against walls. These tall and slender pieces usually come in square and/or rectangular shapes. They also come in a cylindrical shape with flat backs. Meanwhile, if you are in search of an item to be placed on a corner, then, a corner curio cabinet maybe used. This type usually is in triangular or wedge shapes to fit the rooms corners. While for compact or high traffic areas, a smaller and stunted adaptation of the standard wall curio called the miniature or console cabinets is recommended. On the other hand, if you want a distinctive storage item, then hanging curios will be a good option. These are small and light curio cabinets that are intended to be hanged on walls. They also suit well in areas with limited space.
