1. Atlantic Windowpane Adjustable Media Cabinet
If you’re keen on the windowpane style cabinet, do consider this one.

Dimension: This is the most important thing to consider when you purchase a multimedia storage cabinet because you wouldn’t want to find out later that there’s not enough space in the room to put your cabinet. So, decide the space where you want to place your cabinet, take a measurement and start hunting for your perfect cabinet. If you have a small space but need a cabinet for your large collection, look for the wall storage type with a taller height. If you have decent space in your room, consider going for the classic swing-open door cabinet as they are shorter and easier to access.
Types of Material: Most of the furniture is constructed with MDF for a smooth surface and low-cost manufacturing. However, as they are basically confined wood particles, they don’t hold screws well. If you consider wall-mounting the back of the cabinet, especially for the wall-unit type, you may want to look for the one that is made with a different material other than MDF. Cabinets made with composite wood are stronger and more durable in this case.
Types of Cabinet: The style, design, and color are purely based on your preferences, however, this part is a suggestion of which type you should get to help you choose the perfect cabinet for your collection. Think of how you want to store your cabinet. Do you want to display your whole collection or store them in a locked cabinet to prevent them from any damage or dust? There is the wall-mounted open shelves cabinet which is perfect for a small space room and collection display, while the door lock cabinet will save your collection from dust, light and unwanted touch; a full protection of your precious treasure. For a semi-protection, do consider the glass window or glass sliding door cabinet. You can protect your collection from the dust and air while still able to exhibit your charming collection.
If you need to get organized with your collection, while also want to get your room decorated with a piece of beautiful furniture, why not consider one of these functional storage cabinets?
We hope the list is helpful for you in choosing the storage cabinet that is perfectly suited to your needs. If you’re still not sure of which one to get, read on and find our buying guide down below to help you with the selection.
