Wall Showcases for a Narrow Space


The amount and configuration of the space available to install your
wall showcase can vary a lot. In some instances you have to work with
a corridor, hallway or a deep and narrow environment. It is no easy
task to figure out how to take full advantage of what you have
available. There are two ways to go about it. You can select a floor
wall showcase which does not exceed ten inches in depth or you can opt
for a wall mounted shadow box. A slim pre assembled wall showcase is
an attractive option. With a tall cabinet at the bottom and a glass
area on top the wall showcase combines storage space and highly
visible displaying. For stability any narrow wall showcase needs to be
attached to the wall behind. This is done by drilling holes through
the back of the top and bottom cabinets and fitting some screws into
the wall. Multiple glass shelves placed at eye level will make for a
good linear display. The bottom cabinet of a narrow wall showcase
should be at least thirty inches tall while the glass area ought to be
all at eye level. The second choice is more flexible and economical. A
custom wall shadow box usually does not exceed six to nine inches.
They can be manufactured from very small to tall and narrow or very
wide with one or two shelves. A wall showcase such as a shadow box can
be made to fit exactly in that narrow space. You can use it singly or
a few together. To be visually effective the wall showcase should be
also set up at eye level. Always remember that in a narrow space there
is no room to bend down and look at merchandise! Designers will
compensate for the lack of depth by making these wall showcases taller
than a conventional wall unit. Since all are attached to the walls
behind there is way more flexibility in the sizing of wall showcases
for a narrow space.
