A vintage metal cabinet: what’s it all about?When you buy any vintage item, you will notice it shows signs of wear. These pieces of furniture can be nearly a century old and some of them can look it. A vintage metal cabinet may be dented, marked or even show signs of rust. These may sound like negatives but in reality they don’t have to be.
A vintage metal cabinet may have originated from doctor’s offices or industrial settings. As the name suggests, these are predominantly made from metal. Some of the cabinets may have an open front, some may encase their contents with metal doors and others may even have a glass front. The inside of the cabinet may be pigeon hole storage, or it may contain shelving. When the cabinet has a glass front, this shelving is usually also made from glass.
Why buy a vintage metal cabinet?A vintage metal cabinet can be used for many things. You may choose one to decorate your dining room or entrance hallway. They could also be a great addition to a bathroom or kitchen, especially ones with glass fronts that show off their contents. Overall, they are versatile items that can be useful all around your home.
