Showcasing the things you love and pieces that you collect is an easy way of injecting personality into your home. Whether it consists of toys, books, or travel souvenirs, it pays to display them properly to avoid mess and overwhelming the home. Let these tips guide you.

  • Group the pieces according to shapes and sizes

In this unit, the small vinyl toys are all displayed in one spot in their glass cabinet while huge action figures are given individual niches. Doing this will make your collection look more cohesive.

  • Rotate your display items

This allows you to change your display once in a while so you don't get tired of it. For the owner of this home, he keeps the rest of his action figures in boxes while the others are showcased in the living area.

  • Line up similar items on one shelf

Doing this gives your collection a unified look instead of a hodgepodge of various items. Lining them up firing-squad style will also draw attention to their similarity and uniform look.

  • Leave some spots blank

This will give your collection some breathing space. These spots can either be at the center or at the sides. Avoid placing your items too close to each other so they will look neat instead of cramped.
