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.
Lastly, there are centerpiece glass curio cabinets. These are one of the most beautiful applications of glass for cabinets. More often than not these are made entirely of glass, or at the very least will be composed of a central wood or metal shaft around which the glass cabinet layers are mounted. As the name implies, these are designed to be placed standing alone in the center of a room, displaying your collection from every angle. The shape of the glass panels determines the shape of the cabinet, and these are rarely just simple squares. The designs often come in perfect circles or hexagon panels.
Many of us wish to decorate our homes with beautiful furniture to achieve a comfortable ambiance; one that exudes a warm and inviting feeling, and makes your friends and family want to come over for parties or other gatherings. However, constantly having people over to your home can be risky for the collectibles, memorabilia, and other valuables you may have in your home. They may touch the untouchables, accidentally drop the fine china, or cause a dent on your sports trophies. So how can you keep all your valuables safe while still showcasing them? Enter Curio Cabinets.
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.
