Many people in the UK have treasured collections that they want to protect and display in a room display cabinet, from model ships to crystal figurines. Here are a couple of tips to choose the perfect display cabinet for your irreplaceable items.
Consider your decoration at the moment. Whatever type of furniture and furniture you have, be sure to compliment your home display cabinet. There’s nothing worse than buying a cabinet for the wrong reason and finding out it isn’t “going” with what you’ve got at the moment. Think twice before you purchase that curio “bargain” display cabinet.
Increase your horizons. Be sure to consider cabinet types other than the traditional freestanding type of room display, especially if space is limited. For example, a wall-mounted corner display cabinet is a great way to display your collection in a space-saving way. And if you have existing wall furniture or shelving, see if a wall display cabinet is available from the manufacturer that matches what you have.
Look at the style of your collection. A collection should not be dominated by room display cabinets. Instead, it should be improved. For example, if you have a collection of model 19th century sailing ships, choose a traditionally styled cabinet that will give a “period” feel to your collection. However, be sure your cabinet has adjustable shelves, regardless of style.
Consider alternate sites. Most people who want cabinets with curiosity tend to want to put them in a living room or den. However, if you think creatively, you may find an innovative way to showcase your collection. Here’s an idea: what about a cabinet under a kitchen counter or island? Since the kitchen is the most used room in many houses, if it is located here, you will have more opportunities to see your collection.
A room display cabinet is a great way to showcase their treasures to collectors in the UK, big or small.
