If you are choosing bird cages for decoration, there are several things you must consider. First of all is the size. Bird cages are usually made to be large. Think about the size of your room and the place where you want the cage to stand. Do you have furniture which will accommodate a large cage? What will you do to decorate it? Perhaps, a better idea would be to start with smaller cages. They usually look neater and are easier to place. At the same time there are a lot of uses that a small decorative cage might have, so you might not even need a larger one.
If you don’t want to buy a ready to use ornate cage you can look for old bird cages for sale and decorate them yourself. There is no need to buy a new cage for decorations. Since you’ll be changing it completely, any old cage will do as long as it is not damaged. Think about painting the cage with the color you like and adding some interesting designs on the floor and the bars. Make an old cage to house a flower pot. Grow some ivy in the flower pot and have it growing around the bars. The cage will look fantastic.
Indoor bird cages can be made from different materials. But even though they don’t need to withstand severe cold and heat, the best cages are still made from metal. Metal is easy to clean and hard to damage. If you are buying a stainless steel cage for a large bird, make sure the bars are thick enough, so the bird can’t bend it with its beak. All birds like biting down on the cage bars, that’s why metal is the best material for the cage. However, such cages might be more expensive than the ones made form other materials.
