There are numerous ways to showcase awards given in recognition of past achievements. The way you decide to display your awards will depend on the type and style of the award. Whether it be a tall trophy, a plaque or a medal, an awards display arrangement is great way to commemorate your accomplishments.
Glass Trophy Case
A glass trophy case is a good way to display trophies or special medals that you have won. You can buy a trophy case, have one built or if you are a skilled with wood and glass you can build your own display case. While glass trophy cases displaying school trophies are common in school hallways, a glass trophy case in a home can be a nice way to show off personal awards and achievements. In some instances, you can use a used glass display case from a retailer as an awards display case and you may pay less or even get a used retail display case for free.
Devote a Wall
Many awards come in the form of plaques. An idea for displaying this type of award is to devote a wall of your home or office for displaying award plaques. Instead of displaying plaques all over the place, a devoted wall will keep the awards in one area. In addition to freeing up your other walls for artwork or other décor, having one wall devoted to award plaques can be an impressive display as onlookers see all you accomplishments in one place.
A trophy shelf is an inexpensive but effective way to display awards. Build a trophy shelf and use it as the centerpiece of a wall. In an office, when possible, place the shelf right behind your desk, slightly above eye level, so when people are sitting opposite you they will be facing the trophies. In a home, place the shelf either on the wall behind the TV, so when people are watching TV or visiting with you they will see your awards. However, for those who prefer a more modest approach; place your trophy shelf in your bedroom.
If you have a lot of awards to display, devote a room to your awards. Rather than place your past achievements in the attic or basement where they become dust collectors, devote a room of your home or establishment for displaying awards. Arrange the room with a display cases in the center of the room and trophy shelves placed along the walls. Additionally, devote one of the walls of the room for displaying your award plaques or any other types of awards. For an added touch to an award room, decorate one of the walls with memorabilia of the sport or activity from which you won your awards.
