  • 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. Theyre $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

  • forwire 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. Theyre $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 also fits records.

  • It can definitely be painted, too, if you want to spruce it up.

  • Theyre $39.99 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 Etsy. And finnally,

  • 15. But if youre 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.
