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.
Second of all, do not restrict yourself to one source of ideas and broaden your horizons. Do some thorough searches on the internet, browse through catalogs, attend some cabinetry galleries, visit your local home improvement store... If you have a restricted setting, then this might actually provide you with some good alternatives as to how to make use of it efficiently. Third of all, consider every single location where you could place your cabinet. Many people limit themselves simply to their bedrooms or living rooms, but with a spark of originality many places can be found for them. For example, since most people spend much time in the kitchen and eat there, placing your beautiful collections on display there is a great idea since everyone will get to see it pretty often.
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.
