How to Showcase Your Kitchen and Your Displays at the Same Time

There are lots of ways to make your kitchen uniquely yours. One way is to use a bright color that sets the room apart. You can also embrace your collections by choosing the perfect displays. Make a style statement by displaying a favorite collection of dishes. Show off your wedding china or your grandmother’s tea set. The right collection can add a personal or formal touch to any kitchen.

Curio or China Cabinet

china cabinet is designed to display chinaware. That means the sides are typically enclosed. If your collection only needs a to be viewed from the front, this is the way to go. However, if you have a collection of salt and pepper shakers or antique kitchen appliances you may want the collection viewed from all sides. That’s where curios come in. Curio cabinets have glass sides and a mirrored back so that the decorative detail of each item in the cabinet can be seen from all sides. A curio cabinet can be used to showcase pretty much anything from vintage tea sets to collectable figurines. They also come in a variety of styles, sizes, and types.

Buffet and Accent Tables

China cabinets and curios are not the only way to make your display stand out. A buffet in the kitchen or a nice accent table with open shelving can serve the same purpose on a less formal scale. These are especially good options if your collection has items that you want to display and actually use from time to time, such as your grandfather’s old meat grinder or your aunts standing mixer.

Keep Your Space in Mind

If you have an open floor plan with lots of space, make sure your display choice doesn’t close in the area. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by your collection: you want to show it off as naturally as possible. For an open plan, lean more towards buffets and accent tables. If you have a separate kitchen, with more wall space curios and china cabinets work nicely.
