Best Curio Cabinets
(Cheap one) – 3-Shelf Glass Curio Cabinet
This is the cheapest curio canbinet that we had come across, this product has an average rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 on Amazon with more than 800 customer reviews and its being amazon’s choice.
It has 3 glass shelves with each having a weight capacity of 33 lbs, it is covered by glass on 4 sides with a supporting frames between it, and is small in size.
The top and bottom are made in wood with plastic laminated on it.
The glass door has magnet to hold it from opening and it doesn’t comes with a safety lock so if you want to keep a costly collection this doesn’t provide any security form theft,
apart from that the look is awesome and the black colored frame, top and bottom looks great and i love it.
What is like
- Cost is very cheap and worth for the money you spend,
- Looks attractive,
- If you want to keep a bigger collection, you could remove one or even two shelves inorder to make space for the bigger one,
- It is very stable, even placing it on a carpet will not make it fall for any reason,
- The inside of the cabnet is dust proof but not outside, regular cleaning may be required if you are in a heavy dust area.
What i don’t like
- The cabinet does not have safety lock which is very important if you have a costly collection,
- The assembly part requires some time than the other ones,
- The cabinet does not have lights in it.
(Value for Money) – 4-Shelf Glass Curio Cabinet Cappuccino and Clear
This product has an average rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 on Amazon with more than 300 customer reviews.
The materials are almost same as the above one except it doesn’t have the frames in between the glass shelves instead it has a bit of space at the corners and wooden top and bottom with plastic lamination on it.
If you wanna place the led lights this 0.2 mm gap will be helpful to enhance the cabinet.
What i like
- The look is awesome without any frames in between the shelves like the first one,
- Easy to assemble, but differentiating the door and the back side of the cabinet is little difficult, you need to examine it carefully before assembling it,
- It has four shelves,
- The glass is strong enough to hold weight of upto 26 lbs,
- It is worth for the money you spend on it.
What i don’t like
- This cabinet does not have light in it, you need to add it if you want.
