Consider your collection's style. Room display cabinets should not dominate a collection. Instead, they should enhance it. If you have a collection of model 19th century sailing ships, for example, choose a cabinet with traditional styling that will give your collection a "period" feel. Regardless of style, however, be sure that your cabinet has adjustable shelves. Consider alternate locations. Most people who want curio cabinets tend to want to place them in a living room or den. If you think creatively, though, you might be able to find an innovative way to display your collection. Here's an idea: what about a display cabinet built underneath a kitchen counter or island? Since the kitchen is the most used room in many houses, you'll have more opportunities to view your collection if it's located here.
Size is the first thing you need to consider. First, you need display cabinets that will fit in your store. You must also be able to fit it into your doorway (unless you assemble it yourself.) You will have a limited space in your store, so you want pieces that will fit your products and the store, with enough room for your customers to move around in and admire your products. This will take some planning, as you need to measure the size of your store, and plan out how many and how big your cabinet should be. Try to use paper and pen (or a software program) to plan out your floorspace, so you can choose the right size of cabinets.
Consider your current décor. Regardless of what type of furniture and furnishings you have, be sure your home display cabinet compliments it. There's nothing worse than buying a cabinet for the wrong reason and then finding out it that it does not "go" with what you currently have. So, think twice before acquiring that "bargain" curio display cabinet. Expand your horizons. Be sure to consider types of room display cabinets other than the traditional freestanding type, especially if you're limited on space. A wall-mounted corner display cabinet, for example, is a great way to show off your collection in a way that saves space. And if you have existing wall furniture or shelving, see if the manufacturer offers a wall display cabinet that matches what you have.
