BOOKMARK

Why hide them when you can show the world what you love?

Thinking of a way to liven up your home? Here’s one simple way: show off your collectibles! Whether it’s superhero figurines, sneakers, or K-pop merchandise, your weird and wonderful collections that you spent years amassing are a great way to showcase your personality. Check out these 7 homes that have made their collectibles the focal point of their home.

1. Hiding them behind sliding doors

Love to collect liquor bottles? Take a leaf out of this home in Circuit Road. As if those strong lines and dark colours weren’t bold enough, that impressive liquor collection really elevates the boldness of the dining area to a whole ‘nother level.

2. Using recessed shelves as a display area

Driven by her love of K-pop megastar BTS, the homeowner of this Kim Tian Road home utilised rounded edges and pastel colours to convey a softer, friendlier look. Peep those BT21 collectibles looking right at home on those recessed shelves!

3. Setting aside a bedroom as a showroom

Sneakerheads, this one’s for you. If you’ve got an impressive collection of Air Jordans and Yeezys, show them off on a huge wall-to-ceiling display shelf, like the one in this Tampines home! You can see just how proud the homeowners are of their collection – the backlit shelves and displayed Nike boxes all add to the sleek, sport store-inspired look.

4. Showing them off in the living room

Punggol Way by Absolook Interior Design

What’s the best place to show off your collectibles? Why, the communal areas, of course! Rather than keeping them hidden away in private areas like the bedroom, putting them on display in places like your living room will definitely garner more attention.

Just take a look at how this homeowner has showcased his sneaker collection. One look and you know that nobody will, well, not notice it. Bonus points for the way it complements the marble feature wall and floor, because it really brings out the modern, luxe look of the place.

5. Arranging them along the lines in your home

The problem with having so many collectibles is knowing how to arrange them without looking too cluttered. But as you can see, the owner of this home in Sumang Lane has got it down pat, with a neatly-arranged collection of Star Wars memorabilia that highlights the sharp, clean lines of this modern home. This is the way.

6. Storing them on a wall-mounted shelf

Showing off a vinyl record collection can be tricky, because plastering it all over your walls will make your home look extra cluttered. A solution? Store them all away on a bookshelf, and keep the walls clear of any decoration to make your vinyl records the focal point of the room.

What makes this particular collection stand out is the colour contrast. Using a pale, neutral colour against a bold green wall is a particularly clever move to draw all attention to it the moment anyone walks into the room.

7. Displaying them in coffee tables

Ever wondered how a hypebeast’s home would look like? Look no further than this Yishun home. The dark colour theme of the home just makes the vibrant Supreme merchandise and KAWS figures stand out even more. We also love how they chose to display their Supreme merch in a clear coffee table – take notes if you want a display that’s more unique!
