While they might have been intended only to keep pet birds inside, the bird cage made its way into the world of decoration and took everyone by storm. No - we’re not talking about the yellow plastic birdcage your family budgie lived in, we’re talking about beautiful, intricate and vintage-inspired cages. Like something out of a fairytale, bird cages add a special touch that is hard to describe but sits somewhere between bohemian, vintage and rustic - three styles that hipsters love.
What we like about bird cages is that their decorative ability doesn’t just end at the cage itself, but also what you can put in or on it. Don’t get us wrong - a bird cage on it’s own is a marvelous feature. But, there’s something extra unique about a bird cage that expresses individuality, and you can do that by filling it with things like plants, flowers, books, sculptures, candles and jewelry. You can even use the cage as a frame for outdoor lighting, decorating it with fairy lights and making it a centerpiece for an event.
It can be hard to choose from the many options - so we’ve picked our 12 favorite bird cages to help you decide.
