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.
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.
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.
