The company that has the widest variety of display cabinets for your collectibles at the lowest prices is IKEA. The best display cabinets are the DETOLF, MILSBO, FABRIKOR, BILLY, OXBERG, RUDSTA, BRIMNES, and KLINGSBO.

Finding suitable quality display cabinets for your collectibles is actually pretty tough, and we will discuss where is the best place to purchase them that gives you the most comprehensive choices and for under $200.

Collectible display cabinet overview

Obtaining a display cabinet for your high-end collectibles can be as difficult as acquiring your collection itself. Having a display cabinet that shows off your collectibles in a way that is visually appealing is half the battle after you have obtained part or all of your collection, and an excellent display cabinet can make that possible.

Some collectors focus on putting as much effort into finding, building, and customizing their display cabinets as they do in obtaining their collectibles, and this aspect of collecting should not be overlooked.

As we said, many collectors customize and build their cabinets to look terrific; however, in some regards, collectors like to collect for the sake of collecting, and this should be considered. Hence if you are a collector that loves to collect high-end figures and put them on your shelf, there is nothing wrong with that either.

However, we are sure that after you see these display cabinet options, you would consider purchasing even just one to really bring your collectibles to life, and that would portray them in a different light altogether.

Where to purchase display cabinets for your collectibles

For the most part, you could always build your own display cabinet; however, this would require knowledge of DIY, woodworking, glass cutting, and other forms of manual labor. If you are not adept at these forms of DIY, then it would be preferable to purchase a display case, and we have reviewed the best and cheapest for your perusal.

One thing to note is that the best possible place to purchase display cabinets that we have come across and are widely available no matter the region you are situated in is from IKEA. Amazon does have a handful of glass cases that you can choose from; however, when trying to purchase a cabinet for your collectibles, IKEA has the most comprehensive range at the best prices.

The KLINGSBO, you could say, is the supped-up version of the DETOLF, which is constructed out of a solid metal alloy frame and has a 360-degree viewing angle. It does cost more than the DETOLF; however, it is much more appealing and eyecatching.

  • Depth: 11 3/4 “
