Creating the Perfect Display with Your Curio Cabinet

A beautiful curio cabinet can be a great addition to any home. The background look of the case mixed with the symmetry of the collection makes an aesthetically inviting showcase for any room.

Use Symmetry….or Don’t

Traditionally, curio cabinets held carefully stacked displays of symmetrical dishes. If you love a classical look, this may be the solution for you. However, if you’re more into eclectic styles, you can create a truly beautiful look by alternating colors, shapes or styles on each shelf of your cabinet. You can even search Pinterest and similar sites to get more ideas for how to arrange items inside a cabinet.

A traditional curio cabinet can be added to nearly any home as a simple, effective way of storing your collections and displaying them prominently. The way you decide to display your items will largely depend on the type of look you’re going for. If you want a more traditional look focus on working from back to front in symmetrical designs. However, if you want something quirky and fun you can do away with the symmetry and think of each shelf as its own unique frame.

Copenhagen has a beautiful selection of curio cabinets featuring old and new styles. You can find a cabinet that is perfect for the size and style of your home today and get straight to decorating. Visit Copenhagen online or visit one of our showrooms in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson, Austin, El Paso, or San Antonio to explore your options.
