A corner display cabinet is a great choice for many UK home owners who find themselves without enough space to properly display their collectibles. Why not take advantage of unused space by choosing a display cabinet that tucks neatly into a corner of a room? A corner cabinet will protect your items while displaying them attractively. Here’s some general information about corner display cabinets.
Size and Style Considerations
A corner curio display cabinet doesn’t have to take up a lot of space. Nor does it need to stand out in a room — the right corner room display cabinet should blend seamlessly with your existing décor, regardless of whether it’s traditional or contemporary. A corner curio cabinet should be chosen with as much care as other pieces of furniture in the room.
Do Some Research First
Before purchasing a home display cabinet for your treasured collection, decide on a size. You can choose from half-height consoles, full-height consoles, freestanding, wall mounted and many more. Make note of the size and number of shelves and try to estimate whether or not the corner wall display cabinet will comfortably accommodate all your items. Another choice you’ll need to make regards materials. Solid wood cabinets are expensive. If you’re on a limited budget, you might want to consider corner curio cabinets made from particleboard overlaid with wood veneer.
Shelving, Mounting and Lighting
The shelving should be easy to adjust. Shelves made from glass are preferable to shelves made from solid materials. Be sure to have a good understanding of how to mount the cabinet if it’s a wall unit. In fact, quality cabinet furniture should include mounting hardware. The lighting scheme of the cabinet is also a key factor. The best cabinets use halogen lights. Halogen is a type of incandescent light that is more natural and lasts longer than a typical incandescent bulb. The best cabinets will have lights on more than one tier. In addition, beveled glass doors are a good choice to give a designer look to practically any style curio cabinet.
From crystal figurines to war memorabilia, a corner display cabinet is a great way for collectors in the UK to both display and protect every type of collectible.
