    Depends on your situation. If you live alone, the best place to put your collection would be your room. But, if your married or romanticly involved and living with someone, it would probably be best to put your collection in a mutually agreed area, like the living room.

    Having Direct sunlight coming through that window hitting the TF's in the same spots everyday WILL yellow/discolor your TF's in the exposed areas.

    Hell, I dont even let INDIRECT sunlight touch my TF's. The window in my TF room is completely covered.

    I would just box up the majority, then keep out the ones you really want to display. I wouldn't put any in direct sunlight, that will ruin them for sure.

    Either get a protective cover for your window, or heavy curtains. Heck you could even go super cheapo and get some construction paper to cover the window and be good.

    Why don't you just get some shades?

    I'd say bedroom cause thats what I have with mine but then if you can't I can totally understand. I have mostly all of mine in my closets where I can close the doors if I don't want anyone to see it if I have company over.

    Sunlight is the grim reaper of TF collections. Get blackout curtains and never open them. I used to put my bookcases in front of the window so there was no chance of the death rays getting at the figures.

    this^ if your space is limited you have few options. when me and my wife then gf moved in together i was just starting but soon had about 40-50 figs and couldnt put them all out so i picked a line and displayed that then after a while i switched it up. also id avoid getting more shelves until youve got a bigger space. it gets tempting to want to put it all out.good luck.
