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.
Treasures: Treasure is not something that you bought recently for a million dollars. It is something that is valuable to you that money just cannot buy. It may be some antique piece came from your granny passing all the ancestors in between or it can be something that was a part of your life since childhood or something special given by someone special. Rolling your eyes over it gives you a lot of peace of mind.
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.
