If you have a safe location that is climate controlled ( between 45-55 % humidity) then a secure wall hanger works well. I use a String Swing for violin. It keeps my fiddle in my eyesight so I can play on a whim. The short 10-15 minute practice bursts (along with my regular practice sessions) really makes me look forward to the longer sessions. So add me to the list of players that keeps it out of the case.
