How to Choose the Right Credenza Cabinet for Your Space

How to Choose the Right Credenza Cabinet for Your Space

The credenza cabinet, a timeless furniture piece with roots dating back to the Renaissance, has found a renewed purpose in modern homes.  More than just storage, the credenza acts as an accent piece, elevating a room's aesthetics while offering much-needed functionality. But with many options available, choosing the right credenza cabinet for your space can feel overwhelming. Fear not! This guide will equip you with the knowledge to find the perfect credenza and introduce you to The Higher Gallery, your one-stop shop for exceptional credenza cabinets.

Let's get a step-by-step understanding of choosing the right credenza cabinet

Step 1: Measure and Consider Space

Evaluate your selected credenza area critically before delving into aesthetics. Consider the available height, width, and depth using a measuring tape. Remember to account for any entrances, baseboards, or electrical outlets that might restrict placement. Using these dimensions to create a basic floor layout may be quite beneficial.

Step 2: Function First: Storage Needs

Credenzas are the masters of disguise since they can be used for hidden storage and create exhibition areas. Consider the items you intend to store. Do you require shelves for decorations, or books? Maybe you need lots of drawers for documents, media equipment, or office supplies. To optimize drawer functioning, consider using organizers and drawer dividers.

Step 3: Finding Your Style: Material and Design

Choosing a credenza that complements your current décor is the most exciting part!   Credenza cabinets are available in a fantastic variety of materials, each with a unique style.

Wood: Wood credenzas are a classic option that radiates refinement and coziness. The wood type, ranging from light and airy oak to dark mahogany, can significantly change the piece's feel. Think of metal accents or wood credenzas with lacquered finishes for a hint of elegance.

Glass: Stylish and airy, glass credenzas provide the impression of space while showcasing your most valuable items and creating extra storage space. Since they won't visibly clog the area, they function especially effectively in compact rooms. Use clear glass shelves or a tinted or smoked glass for a dramatic touch set on two pedestals. 

Metal: Sleek, industrial style credenzas made of metal look great modern look. They look at home in lofts, modern settings, and areas  you want to be a bit edgy. Think of brushed nickel or chrome for a cooler more austere look  and  gold, brass or copper for trending and cozier vibe.

Step 4:  Doors and Drawers: Access and Functionality

Think about how you'll access the contents of your credenza. Drawers or cabinets with easy-to-grip handles might be ideal for frequently used items. Consider cabinets with sleek, push-to-open mechanisms or glass doors for display purposes.

Step 5:  The Finishing Touches:  Color and Details

After selecting the essential components, think about the final touches. The credenza's vibe may be significantly changed by the paint colors used. While a credenza in a neutral hue might blend in with the backdrop, a vibrant, lacquered credenza can become the room's center point. Remember to consider the hardware! Pulls and knobs give your credenza that finishing touch of individuality and are available in a variety of designs and finishes. Swap out the hardware for an updated look.
