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.
If you are looking for a display cabinet, but do not want to spend a lot of money, you could look for a used cabinet. Often people will advertise their used pieces of furniture for sale in the classified section of the newspaper. You can also check at furniture stores for any clearance or discontinued items that will have reduced prices. You can also choose to purchase an unfinished wood cabinet that you can paint or stain yourself to match your décor. An unfinished piece will cost less than a finished one. Whatever your special treasures may be, you will find a lot of different ways that you can show them off in your home.
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.
