Glass Cabinet

Glass cabinets are very popular. They are great because of their dual function. They are both utilitarian and stylish. Glass cabinets come in all shapes and sizes, and are wonderful for displaying curios, objects and other stylish items. Glass cabinets can be placed in any part of the house, but it is usually kept in the dining room to hold wine glasses, china, kettles and unexpected little curios like papier mache models and such.

Glass cabinets come in a lot of different styles. The simple, basic style is very popular at present. These are basic rectangular cabinets that have a wooden encasing that can be painted in pretty colors. White is very popular and minimalist. Glass doors show all that’s hidden inside.

A great do-it-yourself technique to decorate a seemingly plain glass cabinet is to do your own stained glass work. Purchase glass paint and do your own art work on a glass cabinet. In the light, the glass doors will look quite beautiful. You can paint them in bright colors, though blues and greens look best. Try to match the fabrics in the room to the glass, so as to unite the colors.

The largest use for these glass cabinets is to store china. Chinaware is extremely beautiful, especially those wonderful ceramic plates with delicate patterns that run in circles. Tea pots and kettles are also pretty utensils that look great.

When buying a glass cabinet, try looking for more unique ones in thrift shops and flea markets. Don’t go for generic ones from department stores or common furniture chains. When you find a one of a kind piece that is creatively made and hand crafted, the value of it immediately increases.

All in all, try and find stylish cabinet pieces that will suit your room and can also provide optimum storage space.
