There’s something undeniably intriguing and eye-catching about a perfectly placed cabinet in your home. Not only is there a huge range of styles available if you check out the offerings from the more up-market retailers, but cabinets have a real ability to elevate any room and even influence the look of an entire home. Cabinets also offer a great opportunity to show off your adventurous side as these contemporary pieces provide modern interpretations of traditional styles, such as with the inclusion of bolder lines, colours and shapes that you can only find in the 21st Century. Whether you place a cabinet in the hallway to inform the tones throughout the house and really make an impression on guests, or slip one into the corner of a room to quietly make its point and turn heads, these pieces of furniture are a stunning way to help make that discerning statement.
If you’re looking for something that’s bang on trend but draws on some classic ideas of the past, then be sure to opt for something that utilises smooth angles and curved lines to create that relaxed feeling while retaining a bold and unique edge. Such a look works particularly well in a small room with a few choice and sparsely-placed pieces of modern furniture, since the arrangement has a cosy feel that nevertheless allows scope for the individual elements to stand alone and make a contribution.
A more ornate and patterned cabinet that has a slender construction can cater for experimentation with other materials and styles in the room, with all the parts combining to conjure a unique and eclectic sum. Metal fixtures against a matte finish look elegant and sleek, while the contrast between the two makes the union undeniably modern. Mixing a more retro (or even classic) style with a bold colour scheme, and then blended with an antique-looking finish, offers a contemporary take on the past with a memorable and tactile look.
Best of all, the versatility and practical applications of cabinets make them perfect anywhere in the house, be it by the side of the bed or pride of place in the living room.
High end furniture retailers tend to offer a wide range of modern cabinets, and these are usually available to buy online as well as from furniture showrooms. Buying online is often the more convenient choice, although it’s always great to see your prospective choices in person.
