Tips for Filling Your Curio Cabinet

Last updated 5 years ago

If you’ve collected figurines and trinkets over the years from family and friends but don’t know how to display them in a fashionable manner, then it may be time for you to purchase a curio cabinet. Curio cabinets are a beautiful accent piece to any dining room furniture set since they add character to a room and serve as a unique conversation piece for you and your guests. Here are several helpful tips for filling your curio cabinet:

Play Around with Proportion

When placing your collection inside of the curio cabinet, be sure to pay attention to how items of different shapes and sizes complement one another. In order to establish balance and appropriately feature each item, place taller items on the sides or directly in the middle. Between those spaces, group smaller items in threes based on their size, and bring the tiniest items to the front so they won’t become lost in the crowd.

Keep Individual Collections Together

In order to create a sense of order inside the curio cabinet, group similar items together. For instance, if you own various collections of porcelain figurines, old children’s books, or antique teacups, then keep their respective items together so that your cabinet doesn’t look convoluted. A carefully arranged curio cabinet will also make the surrounding dining room furniture appear more refined.

Reserve Space for Breakables Only

The only items that should be showcased in your curio cabinet are valuable heirlooms and breakables. Regardless of how treasured your other items may be, refrain from placing them inside of your new cabinet in order to maintain the attractive and elegant look that you set out to achieve upon purchasing the item from your dining room furniture store.
