Trophies are more than just a symbol of an award; they represent your dedication, hard work, and sacrifice in order to achieve something. Maybe those 60-70 hours work weeks paid off with an Employee of the Month award. Maybe those late nights and weekends spent taking extra shots. Most young people appear to find it difficult to display all of their trophies for two reasons: it either stands out too much or it doesn't fit the aesthetic of the room and sticks out like a sore thumb. Whatever the case may be, you have a compelling reason to store them... but how?
While there are numerous ways to arrange them, here are some of the best trophy case ideas for displaying your awards and accomplishments.
While this may seem obvious, there are several ways to find a fantastic trophy case.
For example, you can repurpose an old china cabinet into a gilded trophy case that will shine like the north star. There are also efficient trophy cases that can display a limited number of your awards while also serving as a storage case. This way, you can inform everyone about your accomplishments without taking up too much space. Choose a tower trophy display unit if you want to showoff without taking up too much space.
Glass door cabinets give your trophies a home while still displaying the glitz of their shine.
What shows off all of your achievements better than an entire bookcase filled with you and your family's trophies? You can organize the trophies by a bookshelf and categorize them to your liking: by sport, by person, by the size of the award, by year, etc. If you have several children, then dedicating an entire shelf to them shows you care and allows you a humble brag to all your guests on how amazing your kids are.
Bookcases look great anywhere in the house, so they'll mesh well with whatever room you're wanting to showoff the trophies in.
Tower cabinets maximize storage capacity in your wall's height rather than width, and add a subtle luxury to any room you place them in.
Getting one with LED lights in it can enhance your trophies' shine and glow, while the mirrored back shows off each angle of the trophy... a very nice touch!
What's more, getting a corner display will showoff your awards and accomplishments regardless of where you walk in the living room. You want your guests to notice the trophies right away, and a corner display with beautiful LED lighting will help them stand out!
Is your child planning to keep their trophies in their room? If this is the case, floating shelves can be an excellent compromise. They won't take up much space and will draw the attention of anyone who walks into the room. Floating shelves are a great option for organizing trophies by sport, stage of life, or achievement and having it all tie-in nicely thanks to the shelves' unified colour.
What's the best part? Floating shelves are very inexpensive and can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes at your local hardware store.
Have you ever heard the phrase "putting something on a pedestal"? Take it to the next level with a pedestal display case. This allows your friends and family to examine the details of your trophy by looking through the display case. While pedestals are commonly used to display jewellery, they can also be used to display two or three of your favorite awards.
Don't be shy; use jewellery display case to make a statement in your living room and have all eyes turn to see what's inside. You want to show off your collection, and there's no better way to do so than in a jewellery-store-worthy case.
Do you like the idea of floating shelves but want something a little more luxurious? If so, you might want to think about wall-mounted units. To begin, you can get lockable units to keep your trophies and treasures safe.
You can choose between an all-glass wall unit with sliding doors and a timeless cherry-finished mount with a mirrored back for a futuristic-yet-classic look.
In either case, your guests will be as impressed by your unique way of displaying your trophies as they will be by the awards you've received.
