Display cabinets are used to keep many personal treasures from photographs and trophies to books and ornaments. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles in new, used and refurbished conditions. Display cabinets usually have a variety of storage solutions including shelves, cupboards and drawers.
Display cabinets are a highly versatile addition to your home, available in a range of free standing, corner and wall mounted display cabinets. It is important to consider the other furniture in your home so you can match your display cabinet to suit your decor.
Glass Front Display Cabinets
Most display cabinets have a glass front which helps to keep much-loved items safe, secure and always visible. The protective glass can either be plain or highly decorative with vintage styles being more elaborate in design than contemporary pieces. While some cabinets have lockable doors, others can be open or closed as necessary without a key.
Wooden Display Cabinets
Display cabinets tend to be carefully crafted from wood with lighter shades or pine contrasting with the darker hues of oak or mahogany. Wooden furniture is strong, durable, heavy and long-lasting. It is designed to stand the test of time and provides a sturdy home for all of the items you wish to display. As the wood grain pattern differs from piece to piece, each cabinet has its own distinctive charm. The rich tones of natural wood are often accentuated with varnish.
Wooden cabinets either tend to celebrate the natural earthy hues of wood or are painted to achieve a more contemporary high-gloss finish. With regards to style, some cabinets are also sanded or whitewashed to bring a shabby chic vibe to the home, while others feature heavy metal accessories such as eye-catching door handles or knobs that offer a more traditional feel.
In contrast, modern cabinets regularly feature some kind of LED lighting which illuminate the shelves and makes it easier to see the objects at night.
