Vallee. Curio Cabinet. September 23rd , 2017.
Curio cabinets are made from veneers and various hardwoods and can be found in almost any wood finish you can imagine. No matter what wood type you choose, you can always achieve a finish that will produce a color that matches your household decor. There are both plain and fancy curio cabinets. Curios are not always rectangular boxes and can be found in many designs featuring sweeping curves, arches and flat backs. Curio cabinets can be wall-mounted cabinets, wood corner cases, free standing counter top cabinets, exquisitely lighted cabinets, or other large curio cabinets.
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.
Where you put the curio inside your house is also a determining factor to what you should put inside it. For example, a cabinet curio which will serve as the focal point of your living room can hold your precious collections of porcelain and ceramics. It can also serve to house your souvenir collection of items which you got from the different countries youve visited. If you put the curio cabinet in the kitchen, you can use its shelves to display wines and wine glasses, or your finest kitchen ware collection. If it is a miniature curio and is located in your room, you can put your jewelry inside it. If it is a hanging curio in your library, you can use it to hold your book and magazine collections, or if it is in your fun room, you can display your DVD collections or toy collections in it.
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.
Curio cabinets help in keeping all the precious valuables clean. They dont let dust attack them and therefore you can keep all the antiques in their proper position for a very long time. Whether you need a contemporary display cabinet or an antique, and whether you want to display a treasury collection or a random variety, a curio can be a wonderful piece in your house. There are many types of curio cabinets that are available to add to your home décor. They can differ in sizes and shapes, material they are made from, and even their weight and quality. These cabinets are available in round shapes, rectangular (which are most common), large ones and small ones, table top curios and even wall hanging curios cabinets. You can select them as per your requirement.
