Curio Cabinet Display And Care Tips


Curio cabinets are the best way to display your curios and create focal points in a room. They are showcases to hold art objects, memorabilia, collectibles and items that share a common theme. Any curio cabinet, however, just will not do. It is advisable that the right showcase cabinet should be chosen carefully or even custom-made in order for it to be able to highlight the contents in the best possible way.

1. The Size

Curio cabinets can be small wall-mounted showcases and are recommendable to use if you have limited floor space and they can be also as large as 7 ft. x 7 ft. which are good to have if you have enough space and a lot of items to display.

2. Design

You can choose a curio cabinet made of teakwood, white cedar, rosewood or even plywood depending on your budget, taste and your living room's theme and ambience. For example, if your living room has antique furniture, then it is better to opt for curio cabinets that are made of hardwood and are intricately carved with brass inlay and other elaborate embellishments. Consider also the number of shelves you will need for the cabinet and the material it has to be made of. These can either be made from clear glass or wood. As a style option, you can alternate glass shelves with wooden shelves to break the monotony. You can also use smoked glass.

3. Display Tips

Curio cabinets can have a single glass door, a double glass door or no doors, at all. It is recommended, however, that you choose those with doors to prevent dust from setting to your displays. If you have children or pets in your home, consider fastening the glass sides of your curio cabinet with a lock to prevent items from falling and breaking. Aside from these design considerations, you can also consider getting a curio cabinet with a mirrored back for visual expanse feeling especially if your living room is not spacious. The mirror does not only reflect the light in the room but also helps give an all-around view of the items displayed in the cabinet. To make cleaning easier such as vacuuming and dusting, consider installing casters underneath the cabinet.

4. Maitenance

- Use a damp cloth for wiping
- To polish the wood frame, use a hardwood polish every six months.
- For the glass sections and panels of the curio cases, use a damp newspaper to wipe it
- Cloth, no matter what kinds, leaves residue and never, wipe the glass surface dry because dust can settle on it which can cause some scratches
- To clean the curio pieces inside the cabinet, clean it with a damp cloth, soft brush or vacuum cleaner once a week
- For items made of crystal and glass, wash these in running water once every 3 to 6 months and wipe them with a dry soft cloth

5. What To Display

The color of the room plays a role in determining the type of object you should display as the base color. Such that glassware, white color based art objects and glassware will look great if the living room is predominantly white in color. If you have a small curio case and you have smaller items, then you can display your items individually. For those with curio cabinets, you can group together similar items of color, theme, or size together in 3s, 5s, or 7s. These items can be displayed alongside each other in a straight line or in a semi-circular fashion. To avoid a cluttered look, make sure that you leave some spaces on the shelf.

For collectors, a large curio cabinet can be used to display all collectible items over the years and it can be the focal point of the living room. As a tip, you can display collections together according to their color, the year of the collection and their size. Make sure that the bigger items are located at the back of the shelf and the smaller ones are in front so that all items displayed are visible.

6. Lighting

Lighting in a curio cabinet can make a person looking at the items displayed delighted because light does not only enhance the visual appeal but it also makes the entire collection have a dramatic effect. When considering lighting, choose soft focus lights to be installed in the center of the top shelf. Avoid installing lights on the corners or sides of the cabinet to make the light highlight the pieces evenly without making a shadow. In order to prevent the focus light from glaring, it is usually the case that it is hidden with a wooden panel on the shelf's front.

    Sturdy and very large! Perfect for storing garden cushions and many other things! Finishing on lid a little messy but other than that, easily assembled and attractive

    They are very well made for the price ... keep in mind that they are affordable and not made to be passed down through generations.. They dressed up my otherwise dull dining room chairs and table with the added bonus that we can take them out by the pool if so inclined. They are even comfortable! I am not expecting them to last forever but know that I will get my money's worth out of them.

    The box has only just been assembled but it seems sturdy and well made. 4 stars because it has not really had a proper test.

    This is a great small deck addition. It can be sat on which is amazing but is great for storage and not as big as others. Goes together in a few quick minutes, I got mine on sale which made it an unbelievable bargain!

    Well- Made product but the pictures and site make it seem bigger than it actually is. Was also a bit shocked about the price.

    This deck box is exactly what I wanted to hold shoes on the front porch. I put it together in less than 10 minutes. And our cat has claimed it as his new outdoor bed. Love it even more since it came in white which is hard to find.

    Attractive sturdy construction with an effective self-watering design and optional hooks for attaching to my balcony railings. (Photo shows 2 of the four all planted with a pair of Geranium plants.)

    This bench could not have been easier to put together. I'd also like to mention that it keeps the rain out. It's a good size for odds and ends, but of course doesn't hold much.

    I absolutely love this porch swing, and I was able to put it together fairly simply - the biggest issue was that I was sent the wrong hardware and was short one big bolt so I had to go to Home Depot and try to find a semi-appropriate match. I found one that has ended up working but is a tad shorter than the others and is silver rather than brass, which is a bit annoying. That said, overall the swing is getting regular use and looks beautiful (the wood is finished very well).

    These chairs are comfortable and look great but beware the assembly is not simple. The holes required were not all drilled correctly and the back slats were badly attached. I bought the last in stock so did not want to return them, but with extra tools and drill we are now very pleased with them

    These are really lovely bistro chairs, and I just love them. They are in the dining room, but can easily be pulled out to the porch where weather will not hurt them. We live at high altitude and the sun pours in on the furniture all winter long. It's great, I don't have to worry about the sun hitting the chairs. Real bamboo doesn't last in the sun, and leather/upholstery fades. They are comfortable (even more so with a thin pad) and very easy to keep clean around kids and animals. I have received lots of compliments on them. Pros: Really darling chairs! Easy to clean; easy to stack. Highly recommend them. Cons: Hmmm....not good for big butts.

    This stylish unit sits elegantly in our hallway, accommodating more than 8 pairs of shoes. Clear and precise assembly instructions allowed us to have the unit in place in 15 to 20 minutes

    Great Product easy to put together, the compartments are a little small and larger shoe sizes are a struggle to get in, but other than that it looks great in the living room.
