Storage One of the main reasons people purchase a sewing machine cabinet is for the storage. Take a good look at the cabinet to make sure there is enough room to store your bobbins, thread, needles and other sewing accessories.
Adjustability Can the shelves be adjusted to fit all your stuff? What about the height of the sewing machine? You want a sewing machine cabinet that will work for you and make sewing easy and comfortable.
Size Before looking for a sewing machine cabinet, measure the space where you want it to go. You do not want to buy a cabinet that is way too big or too small.
Aesthetics The cabinet needs to be aesthetically pleasing to you. Do not buy a cabinet if you do not like the way it looks just because it is cheaper. You will regret it. The cabinet needs to make you happy and making sewing an enjoyable experience.
Stability Make sure the cabinet is well-built and solid. Sewing machines bounce and shake when in use. This can put a lot of wear on the cabinet. You want a cabinet that is sturdy and will not move around or come apart.
Weight If you need to move the cabinet around, make sure that you can do so easily. You will not want a cabinet that is too heavy.
