Have you ever thought about celebrating the joy of collecting? When we were children, collecting was a joy. It was a way of celebrating who we are and all of our unique obsessions. That joy doesn’t need to stop as soon as we hit adulthood, however. Many of us still enjoy the hunt and have boxes of collectibles, stored away and (hopefully) collecting wealth by the day. What about showcasing your hard-won purchases in a specially designed wall curio cabinet?
More than a simple ‘curio shelf’, a curio cabinet is a symbol to anyone who enters your home. You are serious about your fandom. Constructed similarly to the traditional china cabinet, curio furniture is explicitly designed to showcase the magnificence of your collection.
Unlike the china cabinet which features only a mirrored back and glass doors, a curio cabinet is generally glass on all sides to display your items to their best advantage. Not willing to disrupt the view? Consider purchasing a cabinet with side accessibility rather than a front door. This will allow you to reach in and adjust your pieces without interrupting a clean, front view. A lighted curio cabinet is the ultimate when it comes to showcasing your hard work. You can adjust where the light is positioned, highlighting the pieces you want for maximum effect.
When it comes to placing your new piece, think of the room it will be in and the space you have available. If you’re dealing with a space-famine, you might want to consider a small curio cabinet that fits comfortably into the corner of your bedroom or corner curio cabinets to make use of otherwise blank space. Large curio cabinet furniture is ideal for large or tall walls as they can add interest to an otherwise unused space. Your collection can be displayed wherever your heart desires – as long as you have the space, you can have the cabinet.
Now that you’ve seen how indispensable a good curio cabinet is when it comes to your collection, the next logical step is finding curio cabinets for sale. No one wants to go into debt and furniture is one of the most expensive purchases you’ll make. We make it easy at 1StopBedrooms.

Shouldn’t everyone know what good taste you have in Sci-Fi?
Finding and having collectibles can become an obsession and it’s easy to start compiling overwhelming amounts of whatever has caught our fancy. Whether it’s detailed models, crystal animals, stamps or porcelain dogs – if you have a collection somewhere in your home that’s not doing much but sitting in a box, why not showcase it? Wall display cabinets are an elegant way to bring your secret obsession out into the open and give it the exposure it deserves.
There is no shortage of display cabinets available online. Need a small/large display cabinet? One click and you’ll see that there are plenty of retailers ready to snatch your money in return for cheap display cabinets that arrive looking nothing like you expected. It’s a big market, and it’s important to be educated before you open your wallet.
Whether you need ‘man-den’ or kitchen display cabinet furniture, be sure the style you choose coordinates with your existing furniture. Traditional styles are constructed from wood and have elegant touches such as carved wood and stylized accents. Antique displays cabinets for sale can go for extraordinary prices, however. You may be better served to find a modern made product in the same design with a service warranty should anything go amiss. More of a comic collector than a Dresden Doll lover? Modern collectible display cabinet pieces include features such as lighting, complete glass enclosures, locks and even humidity control should you need it.
If you have space, there is no reason to not incorporate an imposing, tall display cabinet into your interior. Just be sure that you measure your wall space carefully, taking into account the width and height of the product you’re interested in as well as any extra space that might be needed should it be a front-opening model. If you’re making the most of the floor space you have, there are narrow display cabinet designs that fit comfortably into a corner. This clears up the room for other furniture while still giving your collection the focus it deserves.
