Based on the shape, size, and weight of artifacts, freestanding display cabinets can be categorized into the following types:

1. Flat Display Cabinet: Ideal for exhibiting flat artifacts like paintings, ceramics, and jade. They usually have glass tabletops for multi-angle viewing.

2. 3D Display Cabinet: Suitable for three-dimensional artifacts like sculptures, weapons, and clothing. They feature glass tabletops and sides for comprehensive viewing.

3. Multi-functional Display Cabinet: Suited for various artifact types, equipped with glass tabletops, sides, and tops for versatile viewing angles.

Design and construction of freestanding cabinets must also consider display effectiveness and space utilization. They should harmonize with the museum's overall aesthetics in terms of color, form, and material. Size should accommodate the artifacts' dimensions and quantity, while placement should ensure convenient viewing for visitors.

Key characteristics of freestanding display cabinets include:

1. Security: Crafted from robust materials, these cabinets feature security mechanisms to prevent theft or damage to artifacts.

2. Display Effectiveness: Their design and construction maximize the appeal of artifacts, allowing multi-angle appreciation.

3. Space Utilization: Adjustable based on artifact dimensions and quantity, these cabinets offer space-saving flexibility.

Freestanding display cabinets are indispensable museum fixtures, effectively safeguarding artifacts, enhancing display impact, and optimizing space. With their unique three-dimensional presentation and diverse designs, they've become vital components of modern museum spatial design. Customized cabinet designs highlight each artifact's uniqueness, ensuring proper showcasing.
