A china cabinet is an integral (though optional) part of dining room furniture. Of course, with the concept of one room living, a dining room per se has become obsolete. Yet, there are specific dining areas, and to give it the feel of a place where delicious meals are enjoyed, one may use a china cabinet. Now before you assume a china cabinet is just used to "stuff" your fancy china, there's a manner in which you can make it look visually appealing and attractive. Here's how.
When Displaying Items in a China Cabinet
Just like any design, the display of items in a china cabinet requires you to follow certain design principles, so that it becomes aesthetically pleasing. As such, there are some tips you should follow before you put up your display.
Ideas to Set Up a China Cabinet Display
Add a spark of color to your display by introducing a colored element among monochromatic elements.
Assign shelves for different items and balance the display by placing them appropriately.
Every shelf need not have a cluttered display. Space out your china for a more open, subtle look.
Use hooks to hang cups in your cabinet. These provide a break from the regular, stacked look that most china cabinets have.
Create an organized mess in your cabinet.
Keep it simple by creating a color scheme in your cabinet.
How you set up the display on your china cabinet boils down to your idea of visual appeal and your creativity, along with the theme of the rest of your dining room furniture. Don't go by the standard norms of display. Break those norms to create a masterpiece with knick-knacks all around you!
