storage/display of large graded sets!

Hi all, curious how some people who have large graded sets (thinking like 500+ cards kind of thing) choose to store them or display them. We just have to keep them in big white 2 or 4 rows? Is there any way to elegantly keep them so that the impressiveness of the feat is matched by the aesthetic of the collection as a whole? Many thanks.
Here is a few pics to give you an idea. This is about 550 vintage graded Steelers cards. I got into woodworking and built my own floating shelves.
That is one very awesome steelers collection

Thank you. Its been so much fun doing this. Its just getting harder and harder to find the high grades I need now. They still pop up some but unfortunately I only seem to find them on eBay now, which I hate but oh well.
Awesome shelving and an impressive collection of memorabilia.....just one glaring issue I see :-) Woof Woof

Here's a pic of a 1955 Topps set I once owned. It was about 16 cards short of a straight PSA 8 set, including a Clemente 8. I built the case in a weekend after I figured out all the measurements. It was nice that 15 cards across X 14 rows came to exactly 210, the # of cards in the set. Although 4 cards were never issued in 1955, I did find the 4 missing cards and added them. They were Score, Musial, Ford and Feller. I put a cleat on the bottom to hold the weight and just used black sheetrock screws randomly to secure it to the wall.
Dude that is awesome. Doing a full set like that and they are all horizontal makes it look even better. That had to be satisfying building your own display too. I know it was for me.
