Helmet Display Ideas
Use a stand or a case to display your helmet. (medieval helmet image by jcpjr from Fotolia.com)

Displaying a prize helmet, whether earned or inherited, adds a touch of personality and history to any space. Your decor will dictate the manner in which to demonstrate this special piece. Consider the location for your display before selecting the method you use to exhibit the helmet to ensure the appropriate look is achieved.


A display case will dress up the presentation of your helmet. Glass display cases are a popular option and are available with a complete glass enclosure, solid coloured backing or a mirrored backing. A case enables you to display the helmet with the accommodating sports items, such as a football, race car or motorcycle as accents.


A display stand gives people a chance to view the entire helmet. The stands are most common in wood and stainless steel finished and will coordinate with your decor or style. They are offered with felt-lined tops and a heavy base to ensure stability. The stand helps to prevent scratching as well.

Wall Mounted Shelf

A wall mounted shelf is an ideal display for helmets if you don't have abundant surface space available. If the helmet is on a wall mounted shelf, you may also display framed art or pictures that correspond with the helmet, such as races, games, uniform pictures, etc. A wall mounted shelf gives you more exhibit space as well, because you are not limited to a display box or stand.
