For those of you looking to put their most loved and illustrious collections on display in their house for guests to see should probably invest in some type of display cabinetry, and here are a few guidelines on how to select something which will be right for your purposes. First of all, you need to take into account your current setting. What type furniture do you have in there, what materials are dominant in the room, how does the lighting complement the different details... etc... etc. You should make sure to analyze every single aspect and if you need to, hire the help of an interior designer, because there is nothing worse than buying mismatching furniture for your house, as it will rapidly transform it into something repulsive and undesirable.
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.
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.
