Buying Guide

A modern corner curio cabinet’s height ranges between roughly 70”-78” tall. While there are no hard and fast rules about what height you need to purchase for your home, there are a few factors to consider.

The most important thing to account for when determining what height of corner curio cabinet to buy for your home is how high your ceilings are. While the standard ceiling height for new homes in 2021 is 9’, many older homes will have 7’-8’ ceilings. If your house has 7’ ceilings (84”) and you opt for a 78” high corner cabinet, there’s going to be very little room between the cabinet and the ceiling, which can look awkward.

Also, keep in mind that if you purchase a corner cabinet at the top of this height range, it will be challenging to access any items stored on the top shelves.

While you can store everyday dishware in a modern corner curio cabinet, the cabinet’s design is much better suited to show off your fancy dish sets rather than items you use frequently. Curio cabinets are made to show off their wares. Many designs have shelving that is open-faced or fitted with glass windows, perfect for showcasing a hand-painted ceramic tea-set or wedding China.

A curio cabinet is also a great place to store wine bottles and glasses, especially engraved glass pieces from special events. You might consider placing figurines made of crystal or glass inside the cabinet or even brightly colored decorative vases. For a different look altogether, store books, photos, or candles in your curio cabinet, or show off your collection of antique bottles.
