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.
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.
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.
