15 Fun Vinyl record storage ideas

I have to say, there is something about listening to music on vinyl that just gives me the warm fuzzies! A little bit of crackle, fuzz and hum Physically having to flip over the record to get to the next side, & listening to an album start to finish just has a nostalgic feel to me and I love it This is 15 Fun and Useful Vinyl Storage Ideas by Leonora Epstein 1 As you well know, there is always the old faithful IKEA Kallax series (RIP, Expedit) Here’s everything in the Kallax series 2

But there are many ways to hack Ikea’s square storage systems to look more vintage and less basic This hack uses stained plywood How simple! 3 Records don’t need to be stored on shelves You can make your living room clutter-free by storing them in drawers

Tip: Unless you have a large, weighty collection contained in the drawers, Make sure the cabinet is bolted to the wall When I used drawers, the weight of one drawer pulled out tipped the cabinet forward (onto my foot) Use caution! 4 Whether you keep your vinyl in drawers or on shelves, you can keep everything organized with alphabetical or category dividers These beautiful wood dividers by Kate Koeppel Design are $150 and up

Tip: Vinyl and CD dividers can be made with clear plastic sheets and stick-on mailbox lettering from Home Depot or Lowe's I used 11"x14" sheets (from HD) for LPs and 11"x14" cut into quarters for CDs Quick and easy and FAR less expensive 5 Flower box or small box storage secured to a wall is a good way to organize 45s

6 It’s also easy enough to turn any stray cabinet drawer (easy flea market find!) into rolling storage I had some scrap poplar plywood lying around, and just had to purchase some casters and furring strips to frame out the box I even had an extra cabinet handle laying around to use Drawback: TINY collections only, very limited room for growth

7 Maximize your space by turning vinyl shelves into benches 8 Ikea’s PS Storage Module also fits records Buy a couple of these to stack or arrange as you please

They’re $34 each at Ikea Tip: Given how far the LPs stand up inside the PS Storage Module, stacking is obviously impossible 9 Looking for something vintage? Search Etsy for “wire vinyl storage” (or variations) for cute shelves, often under $100 This black metal table costs $68 on Etsy

But sadly currently sold out Review: A really good way to mess up the bottom of the LP cover If the bottom shelf is covered with 1/8" hardboard cut to size, MAYBE Also very limited room for growth 10

What if you want to show off your vinyl art? Try turning your collection outward on a series of shelves 11 This is also a nice way to present records, as opposed to lining all the spines outward You could definitely DIY this if you come across the right size box Good for tiny collections, otherwise wastes huge amounts of space

12 These basic blocks allow you to build a shelving unit of your own configuration They’re $35 each on Etsy It's an extra-large cube for your extra-large things; stuffed animals, big books, vinyl records (holds 65-70 record albums), clothes, purses, anything! Review: At least a half inch to an inch too small if you store your LPs in protective plastic sleeves (you do, don't you?) 13 Turns out, Ikea’s Molder stool fits records

It can definitely be painted, too, if you want to spruce it up They’re $3999 at IKEA This is just unspeakable 14 If you don’t have a huge collection and are looking for something funky, vintage record boxes can be found on Etsy

This 1960s record box costs $50 on And finnally, 15 But if you’re just looking for an easy way to spruce up a shelf, you can try painting the backing or the bottom for a pop of color That’s it, If you need more storage ideas, Mention that in comment area don’t forget to leave a like or share using special buttons under this video Please press subscribe button available on a same area and see you again later sometimes in the near future Thanks for watching
