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.
There are many styles of cabinets for displaying collectibles and other items. There are some that have glass panels and glass shelves. Others are made of fine wood with wood or glass shelves. Yet others are made with plastic, faux wood, steel, or a number of other materials. If the collection is a valuable one, like fine china or antiques, the collector will probably want to have a cabinet with a lock.
Items from all over the world: If possible collect different items from different parts of the world which can be showcased in the display cabinet. It will be like capturing all the different cultures and lifestyles in one place. Placement: Finally, do not overcrowd the display cabinet with all you have got. Place each items carefully so that the combination makes a great display. Make sure that you leave some space between objects so that it will not look as if you are trying to push all in your display cabinet.
