Tip # 1
First and foremost, make sure that your home display cabinets will showcase your china in the best possible way. This means using the right lighting and having a bright white back wall or mirror on a furniture display cabinet. An alternative to a mirror back wall on a room display cabinet is to use a small mirror that is strategically placed on the shelf behind your items. If your china cabinet doesn’t light up, investigate what’s available from your local home center.

Tip # 2
Have a plan and don’t overload the look. This may sound unusual, but displaying an odd number of items (3, 5, 7, etc.) on the shelf makes for a more attractive appearance. For example, you might want to place 2 large items such as a soup bowl with a lid and a serving plate alone on the shelf. Make sure to leave plenty of space around all of the items on the shelves in most china display cabinets.
Tip # 3
Make sure the display cabinet is balanced. A good strategy is to place the largest items in the center of the shelf as well as then group the smaller items on either side. For example, if you put a large plate in the center of a rack, place a dinner plate next to it. Then place the smaller salad plate next to the dinner plate. This gives your display an attractive and balanced look.
Tip # 4
Think about the style of the room when deciding how best to display china in the cabinet. If your porcelain is antique Victorian and your bedroom decor is modern, add some strategic and simple Victorian elements to help the style blend in in an eclectic way.
With a little thought and planning, an attractive display china cabinet is easy for most UK homeowners to pull off.
