What to Show Off in Your Corner China Cabinet

A corner china cabinet can be great piece in any home. This piece of furniture can truly add some character to your home, and can be a great place to store and display your things. Just what can you display? Check out these suggestions on what to show off in your china cabinet.

1) China

As the name implies, china cabinets really were made for fine china. China or Porcelain dinner pieces were so rare and beautiful back then that you just had to put it out for everyone to see how wealthy you were. Today, people still receive fine porcelain pieces as gifts or handed down from older generations. Getting a corner china cabinet can be a great way to show off these pieces. The glass doors and the shelves were meant for displaying your best items, so use it well. A good way to display a set would be to showcase a complete set on the middle shelf, and place lighter items on top (like crystal glasses) and heavier items on the bottom (like serving dishes or gravy bowls.)

2) Showcase Your Interests

If you have a passion in life, then why not dedicate a few shelves on your corner china cabinet on it? For example, if you admire a certain person, like Mozart or Beethoven, have a few select pieces on display, such as a bust or sheet music. If you love wood carving, then you can also display some of your favorite pieces by your favorite artist or items you made yourself. You can have this corner to display things which are important to you and shape who you are.

3) Collections

Are you one of those people who are passionate about collecting things? If you love dolls, plates, bells, ceramics, then this is he best place to put them. Put your best and most valuable pieces in the middle, so they are at eye level. You can place smaller items on top and larger ones on the bottom. If you have things which are shiny and look great under light (like crystal) use this to your advantage and get a cabinet with lights, or place it near a light source so you can fully admire your collectibles.

4) Practical Uses

You don’t have to just have a corner cabinet for displaying your things. IF you happen to have one and just don’t know what to do with it, don’t throw it away. You can really make use of it. A corner cabinet can save you a lot of space because of its design, so you can put it even in small apartments. For example, you can put it in your bathroom and have a towel caddy. You can put it in your kitchen so you can have a mini-pantry or spice rack. Think creatively and you can find a way to use it.
