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.
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.
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.
