A display case is a cabinet with one or often more transparent glass surfaces, used to display objects for viewing. A display case may appear in an exhibition, museum, retail store, restaurant, or house. A display case may be freestanding on the floor, or built-in. There are three types of freestanding display cases: counter, middle floor, and wall. A counter display case is designed to display objects through one side and have them accessible through the other. The middle floor display case is built to display objects from all sides, and is meant to be placed in the middle of the room. A wall display case is meant to be placed against a wall, where the products are displayed and accessed from the same side.
