We plan to get something like this… maybe we can find a hutch or something to fit it in?

Haruyou:  There are lots of media/gaming centers where everything is out of sight.

Haruyou:  Also, this is our media center… we also collect records so much of the storage is for those as well…

I was thinking of doing a curio or China cabinet to display our stuff

We keep the main rooms “grownup” and put that stuff in other rooms like the study and the bedroom. We do have a pretty impressive display on a sidetable in the front hallway and keep some geeky art up (but nice stuff, not posters). So visitors just get a nod to our geeky side but we have access to the whole setup. It also helps that we have a dedicated gaming room, which is 100% geeked out.

Haruyou:  My FI put his items in a curio cabinet behind glass. That way everything is still on display, but is tucked away in one place, instead of being stacked on the nightstand. I think it honestly depends on what you have. Do you have lots of game cases, posters, knickknacks, etc.? 

For posters, I think matting and framing anything amps up the “class” just a bit. It’s a little expensive, but it certainly beats just taking them onto the walls. For knickknacks, FI like to display his in a curio cabinet. Again, it’s just something about that that makes it feel less like a frat house, more like a classy adult living space. Plus, he can close the doors over and still see everything, but it’s not encroaching on the rest of the very small living area.

Check out the Container Store. They have awesome shelving, boxes, display stuff, etc. It’s my go to place to help me organize and decorate all of my geeky stuff.
