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.
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.
Other display cases have drawers for items like knives. Others have preformed panels where a specific item, like a pistol, perhaps, would be kept in. Others are designed specifically as wall mounted cases for golf balls, baseballs, tennis balls and the such. Others have slots or individual hanging spots for items like sports cards. No matter what type or genre of collectible there is, there are at least several styles of display cabinets to accommodate, protect, and display it. In addition, if you are a collector, a quick search online will provide many links to sites that will often ship for free.
