Buying Guide

The great thing about the small curios display cases is that there are so many different designs, you'll definitely find something that you like for your home. From the most modern of designs with rose gold edges and unusual shapes, to traditional wooden curio cases with a glass cover over the front, it's not difficult to find a display case which fits your décor while also suited your tastes perfectly. Here are some of the styles which are available.

Traditional wooden curio display case

This may have a glass window covering the shelves, or it may be open which allows for ease of access. Since the cabinets are small, they are ideal for storing small items, but not great for the larger items. Although larger items may fit, they may look squashed and out of place. The small size of this furniture means that there are usually around 6-7 shelves on which to position your small ornaments and other items. The frame around the case is often hardwood with a sturdy base so that it can be positioned without any problems on either a floor or other piece of solid furniture.

Circular Japanese small curio display case

This is a unique style for a curio display case, and it will fit perfectly in a minimalist and modern home. The circular metal frame is supported by a horizontal base, allowing you to position the case somewhere of your choice without having to balance it. Within the circular rounded section of this furniture unit are shelves which alternate. The most popular color for this style is black, which fits the Japanese design well. However, you may see various colors when looking at these items, including white, grey, rose gold and red. While there may be further small details which are attached to the case, such as flowers or spirals, it is most common to see a case which is free of extra embellishments and is focused on a sleek and modern design.

Glass cabinet box case

The traditional style of curio case is long rather than wide, although modern alternatives have now presented a different look to the market. This design is a glass box, rectangular in shape and almost completely glass all the way around. The edges are lined with steel or another metal, or could consist of detailed sterling silver or rose gold. The case is designed to be placed on top of another piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers or medium-sized display unit or table. Everything can be seen quite clearly in the cabinet, and since the glass is surrounding the items, you are able to view them from any angle. It's the ideal curio case for small designs and model plans that you need to show off.
