Contemporary Wardrobes Design Ideas

Wardrobes, cabinets, closets, armoire, storage shelf – whatever is the name we give them, these are the useful storage furniture essential for holding our personal effects in every room. Wardrobes are for our bedrooms or dressing areas where we store out clothes. Formal dresses, informal wear, seasonal wear and accessories – like scarves, ties, stoles – handbags – all are stored here.

Small home or luxurious mansion, wardrobes need careful planning and ease of access and use. Big palatial homes can have walk-in wardrobes – a roomy area filled on all sides with wall to wall and floor to ceiling shelves. Small homes may have to be content with a smaller size one but this is a much needed furniture item for your house.

Curio Cabinets Make Your Living Room Beautiful


Don’t you love to display beautiful things in your home? Especially those lovely little artifacts, curios and mementos that you so fondly buy when you go on holidays need to be displayed beautifully! Each memento brings warm memories of the lovely time you had when you went on our holiday. It could be a sea shell, a china figurines or any thing. We may have family heirlooms like your grandmother’s Ming vases or Wedgwood china. Whatever the curios you are displaying, a good display shelf will help tremendously in showing off all the special points of your beautiful collection. Instead of lumping it all in a heap, display shelves give focus to your collection.

Today there are beautiful curio display shelves available with many added features. Grooved glass doors help your open and close the shelf smoothly and easily. And adjustable shelves help you to keep curios of different heights and size displayed to the optimal effect. Many of the cabinets have beautifully detailed legs, handles and frames. Curio cabinets are coming with built-in interior light and task light options so that your curios can be displayed to the best advantage. They have mirrored backsides so that the cabinet looks more spacious and lights get reflected adding to the overall effect beautifully. With dark stained wooden frames, and lighted interiors, the very curio corner glows gorgeously.

There are curio cabinets coming in different shapes and sizes. Some may be full sized glass door cabinets and some may be smaller wall-mounted for a small home or an apartment. Corner curio cabinets are also very popular. Teak, cedar, rosewood and cherry are preferred to make curio cabinets. But nowadays plywood and engineered wood are also used. Use a cloth with quality polish when you are dusting the wood frame. Glass doors can be sprayed with soap solution and wiped clean with a soft cloth. Do not use a dry cloth to clean either glass doors or wooden frames. The dust can mark wooden surface as well cause mild scratches on glass as well. Glass can be wiped clean even with damp newspapers.

Here are some beautiful curio cabinets from Real Good Furniture. The corner curio cabinet is finished in cherry and with all features like smooth grooved door, mirrored back, lighted interiors, and adjustable shelves. Would you like one for your home?

Cost Efficient Modular Kitchen Cabinets Give a New Look to Your Kitchen

The cost efficiency does not come at the cost of looks or quality. Certainly the kitchen gets a makeover in shortest time possible with gorgeous looking cabinets readily installed for added storage. Modular cabinets come prefabricated, easy to install and easy for adding new units without any dismantling or major carpentry. They are more economical as they are bulk manufactured and use passable quality wood – plywood and compressed wood – the reason why they cost just a fraction of custom-built kitchen cabinetry.

Modular kitchen cabinets give a modern and contemporary look to your kitchen.

Cabinets and doors should put up with frequent opening/closing, heavy cookware and other rough handling. Likewise drawers must be sturdily made with 2 cm ply, dovetailed joints and with smooth and easy self closing glides.
