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.
For those of you looking to put their most loved and illustrious collections on display in their house for guests to see should probably invest in some type of display cabinetry, and here are a few guidelines on how to select something which will be right for your purposes. First of all, you need to take into account your current setting. What type furniture do you have in there, what materials are dominant in the room, how does the lighting complement the different details... etc... etc. You should make sure to analyze every single aspect and if you need to, hire the help of an interior designer, because there is nothing worse than buying mismatching furniture for your house, as it will rapidly transform it into something repulsive and undesirable.
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.
