Showcasing your collection is an excellent way of putting personality into your space. Whether it consists of vinyl toys or travel knickknacks, it pays to display them properly to avoid overwhelming your home. Here are some tips:


1. Line up similar items on one shelf. 

This way, your collection will look unified instead of a hodgepodge of various items. Lining them up firing squad style will also draw attention to their similarity and uniform look. 

2. Or, group them according to shapes and sizes. 

Doing this will make them look more cohesive, and it will make your home look less cluttered, too. Take it to the next level by placing them all in one glass cabinet. 


3. Leave some spots blank in order to give your collection 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 and instead of cramped. 

4. Rotate your display items. 

Doing so allows you to change your display once in a while so you don't get tired of it. You can keep the ones out and trade them in for ones in storage to keep it fresh.
