What to look for when buying glass display cabinets

Glass display cabinets are unique as storage furniture due to high focus on the role of displaying items. Though commonly associated with jewellery cabinets, glass showcases may be used as retail display, in restaurants and bakeries. They may be used in corporate settings or even in homes in order to display collectors’ items or as trophy cases. Read further for information on what to look for when buying glass display cabinets.

Display item suitably

Since the basic function of the glass display cabinet is to present the items in favourable and appealing conditions, styling must consider the item to be stored. Glass display counters, commonly used for displaying foods, need additional provisions by way of refrigeration. Lighting should also be directed in order to facilitate viewing, and display the item in a flattering light. Food display cabinets often have fluorescent interior lights integrated with the interiors. Shop cabinets may have multiple display shelves if there are several items to be shown. Display showcases with a single base may be reserved for special items like watches or a set of cuff-links, and will represent the luxury associated with the item. Counter cabinets are preferred over island cabinets if sales personnel are required to supervise their viewing. Salespersons on shop counters can also assist customers in examining items at close distance.

Designed for the location

You should check if the glass displays suit the available space and designated location. You can consider a corner unit or wall cabinets if the floor space is tight. Corner units may be square, triangular or even have chamfered or rounded edges in order to maximise viewing perimeter. Take room measurements so as to ensure that the selected size fits the space available, and all requisite services are provided during shop-fitting. The room décor and the brand of the commercial set-up can influence the selection of material of the display units. Glass display cabinets may have styles in metal or wood. Trophy cabinets may have additional decorative accents.

Access requirements

Check if the glass cases meet the access requirements. In case the cabinet is required to be opened frequently, access should be simple and convenient, and should withstand frequent use. You should study the number of access points required, and how their positioning suit the other activities of the room. These can have a huge bearing on the operational efficiency. Choose glass display cabinets with due consideration to constraints of the space and the item to be displayed.
