Some cabinets are designed specifically for certain collectibles. There are die-cast display cases that are designed to showcase miniature die-cast collectible cars. NASCAR fans who collect miniature versions of their favorite NASCAR drivers' cars can enjoy their collection in a case designed either in a stand alone version or a wall mounted version. For such a collection, glass shelves are usually desired so that all angles of the car can be seen and appreciated without having to take the car out. More handling equals more risk of damage or wear. Depending on the collectible, even natural oils from handling can depreciate the value of the collectible. Coins and stamps are especially susceptible to surface damage merely by handling.
Another type of storage furniture is the corner cabinet. This cabinet is shaped in such a way that it fits snugly in the corner of a room. Because of its clever design, it provides you with ample space to place your items in without taking too much floor space. People who live in smaller homes, such as studio apartments or condominium units, where it is not practical to use conventional display cabinets should consider getting this practical and space-saving cabinet instead. And lastly, there is also the wall mounted curio cabinet. It is perfect for people who live in tiny homes that are already so full of furnishings that there is hardly any remaining space to walk in. In tight places where even corner cabinets can be considered impractical, Display cabinets that can be mounted on the wall should be used instead by avid collectors to keep their items in. These pieces of storage furniture don't take up any floor room at all; they utilize the free wall space between the floor and the ceiling.
Whether it is art, automobiles, coins, stamps, comic books, or Simpsons characters, somebody somewhere has a passion for those or other items that are deemed collectible. If their passion is deep, they have amassed a sizable personal collection of their prized objects. Chances are, they like to gaze upon them or even show them off. In addition, with so many different things to collect, it is only natural that man has also created containers or places to keep them. If the collection is of items that require an activity to enjoy them, such as train sets, remote controlled planes, cars, or boats, they will more than likely display them on a table or on shelves. If the collection needs to be kept free from dust and other airborne particles, they will probably keep them in display cabinets.
