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.
If you have a contemporary styled living room you might want to look at the variety of glass display cabinets that are available. You can find several types that have a metal base unit with glass doors for displaying your items. The metal base can be in chrome or black to match the modern look of your furnishings. You can also use display cabinets in the kitchen to show off your collectible dishes. You can find hutch styles wood cabinets that have glass doors for keeping your collectible dishes safe from accumulating dust.
Another tip here is to try not to stock these cabinets too much. One of your big challenges as a store owner is to get people to buy right away and to come in now rather than going away to think about it - because more often than not a purchase is an emotional rather than logical decision. By making it look like you don't have many of these items you can ensure that people will come in quickly to pick them up before they sell out.
