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.
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.
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.
