How do you display your Lego sets?

How do you guys display your Lego sets? Theme specific? A huge moc monsterous set on a table? Or everything inside a neat display case?
Personally I used the Ikea Billy book case with glass doors to display my sets. Cheap and efficient way I must say! But it lacks depth. No other choice as customising a display cabinet is wayyyy out of budget.

I also bring one newly built set to display at my office, I spend more time there than at home it seems, and my boss said she wants to have a Lego town display once we move into the new space.

I pulled out the corner of my "L" desk (so its split into two smaller desks) and put half in my room for the computer and the other half is being used as a building table while I finish building the last few sets i have left then it will be used for display. So now the computer room has 4 shelves/bookcases, 2 4ft by 2.5ft tables, and the half of the computer "L" desk, and no computer. That room is full of all space lego sets and some technic, creator and such too. My room has one shelf/bookcase that will hold my aquazone/atlantis sets, if I buy more lego I'm not sure where i'll put it. So far no new 2011 sets are "must haves" for me yet and only a few (like atlantis drill sub and new theme Alien Conquest) have me interested slightly. So I'm okay for now.

And the instructions books are under my night table, i save them because you never know when you will need them
The problem is, i need bigger room for my Legos My Lego sets cant go anywhere actually anymore so i just keep them on their boxes unopened

Collectible minifigs are on a bookshelf in the study/office. But I'll probably stow them in little plastic bags some time soon to avoid getting knocked around and lost.
I have to think about breaking down and storing some of the sets soon. Which means I have to sort everything into little plastic drawers/bins or something... :/ My house is on the smallish size with about 1200 square feet (111 square meters), shallow closets, so storage and space can be a bit of an issue.

Its just temporary. My goal is to put everything into a show layout in the next year or so.

Just purchased some 1:43 scale display case, that I will put a 8x16 base brick into and display my Minifigures in there.
Had to give up quickly on getting LARGE sets - largest I have is the Creator car trasporter and its living in the hallway.
