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.
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.
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.
