6 Ways to Proudly Display Your Hobby

Here are some way-cool, dust-free ways local homeowners have found to display their collections.

Toys, Glasses, Liquor and More

Living in space-strapped Singapore, most of us are all too familiar with the snowballing problem of collecting clutter. But holidaying is so much more fun when you have a collection to add to – be it your favourite superhero paraphernalia, your whiskey line-up, your designer handbag habit or any one of a countless number of themes you can build a collection around.

The trick is to be selective, not indiscriminate, and go for quality over quantity. The same principle applies to your display cabinets or shelves. A classy cabinet can make cheap trinkets look like priceless treasures!

Strip Search

HDB 4 Room 785 Woodlands Rise | Starry Homestead Pte Ltd

LED strip lighting frames and illuminates this cabinet filled with big boys’ toys. The wood-grain backing blends in with the brick veneer feature wall and neutral colour theme, attracting the eye without dominating the space.

Welcome Committee

HDB 4 Room Sumang Lane | Flo Design Pte Ltd

A little corner of the entrance hall has been transformed into a ‘welcome home’ statement in the form of a recessed cabinet. It’s a small collection that makes a big statement about the chill and cheerful personalities of the homeowners.

Read All About It

Scandinavian| Rezt & Relax Interior

While printed matter may become a thing of the past, some old-school literary fans still love the physicality of turning the page. This cool bookshelf cum storage unit with a sliding blackboard pulls together the Scandinavian and industrial elements of the room while managing to be both fun and functional.

HDB 5 Room 233C Sumang Lane | Fineline Design Pte Ltd

This Star Wars collection on steroids requires a full floor-to-ceiling wall of storage cabinets. The glass shelving is almost invisible, allowing the army of Storm Troopers and other interstellar collectibles to virtually float in space.

Marvellous Miscellany

HDB 5 Room Punggol | Swiss Interior Design Pte Ltd

Who says you can only collect one thing? This TV feature wall encompasses toys, liquor, holiday souvenirs and more. Recessed lights throw the spotlight on the collectibles when the TV’s off. And when the TV goes on, the lights go off and the collectibles recede into the darkness.

Crazy About Qoo

HDB 5 Room 677C Yishun Ring Road | Darwin Interior

No, it is not a giant vending machine. It is a hard-core soft drink fan’s mind-boggling collection of Qoo cans and bottles. Sandwiched between panels of concealed storage, it’s an efficient use of space and a one-of-a-kind statement-making feature wall.
