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.
If you have a contemporary styled living room you might want to look at the variety of glass display cabinets that are available. You can find several types that have a metal base unit with glass doors for displaying your items. The metal base can be in chrome or black to match the modern look of your furnishings. You can also use display cabinets in the kitchen to show off your collectible dishes. You can find hutch styles wood cabinets that have glass doors for keeping your collectible dishes safe from accumulating dust.
Second of all, do not restrict yourself to one source of ideas and broaden your horizons. Do some thorough searches on the internet, browse through catalogs, attend some cabinetry galleries, visit your local home improvement store... If you have a restricted setting, then this might actually provide you with some good alternatives as to how to make use of it efficiently. Third of all, consider every single location where you could place your cabinet. Many people limit themselves simply to their bedrooms or living rooms, but with a spark of originality many places can be found for them. For example, since most people spend much time in the kitchen and eat there, placing your beautiful collections on display there is a great idea since everyone will get to see it pretty often.
