Tips and Tricks for Displaying Your LEGO® Sets

There’s no denying that LEGO® is big business. In fact, more than 220 million LEGO® sets are sold around the world each year (that’s a set sold every seven seconds!). And with all of the time and money spent on putting these amazing creations together, many people look for ways to show off their hard work in their homes or offices. Not sure how to display LEGO® sets? Here are some creative tips and tricks to inspire you.

Opt for adjustable shelves

LEGO®s come in all shapes and sizes, so your best bet in how to display LEGO® sets is to find shelving that can easily be adjusted to fit your needs. Hanging shelves at different levels can also add dimension to your displays, making them more visually appealing than simply hanging shelves straight across.

Utilize base plates

When figuring out how to display LEGO® sets, one of your top priorities should be keeping your builds and minifigures secure. That’s where LEGO® baseplates come in. They can be a helpful tool for keeping your builds and minifigures in place. You can easily attach the baseplates to a shelf with super glue or line them up on a bookshelf or glass cabinet.

Give a full view

Many LEGO® sets are true works of art, so you want to be able to see them from every angle. With that in mind, you’ll want to give people a 360-degree view of your set. Some ideas on how to display LEGO® sets in full view are to place them on display pedestals or purchase a Custom Size Acrylic Display Box with Black Base from shopPOPdisplays. These are made to order and crafted with clear durable acrylic so you can see your sets while keeping them safe.

Use glass doors

If you want to place your LEGO® sets on bookshelves but don’t want them out in the open, consider opting for units with glass doors. They provide the best of both worlds in how to display LEGO® sets—people can see them but can’t touch them.

Put them on pedestals

Why not put the builds you really love in a more prominent position by placing them on pedestals? Our White Laminate Lighted Pedestal Display Case comes with a built-in dimmable LED light. It’s available in multiple heights, footprints, and LED options, so you can choose between white or a multicolored option.

Offer information

Take how you display your LEGO® sets to another level by sharing facts about your designs. You can type out some information—the name of the build, the year it was released, how many pieces, how long it took to complete, etc.—and frame the pages to create your own LEGO® museum.



Color coordinate

Make how you display LEGO® sets visually appealing by grouping your builds based on color. You can put together a rainbow-like design that will wow everyone who enters the room.

Organize by theme

You might also want to group your LEGO®s based on their theme. From Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter to exotic cars and global destinations, you can put together customized scenes with your sets.

Install optimal lighting

The whole point of displaying your LEGO®s is so people actually see them. With that in mind, make sure you have the best lighting to show off your sets. shopPOPdisplays has options with built-in lighting, or you can simply install some uplighting and/or spotlights on your own.
