15 Fun And Useful Vinyl Storage Ideas
Hey Mr. DJ, put a record on...and then put it back where it belongs.
As you well know, there is always ye olde faithful Ikea Kallax series (RIP, Expedit).
But there are many ways to hack Ikea's square storage systems to look more vintage and less basic.
Records don't need to be stored on shelves. You can make your living room clutter-free by storing them in drawers.
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.
Flower box or small box storage secured to a wall is a good way to organize 45s.
It's also easy enough to turn any stray cabinet drawer (easy flea market find!) into rolling storage.
Maximize your space by turning vinyl shelves into benches.
Ikea's PS Storage Module also fits records. Buy a couple of these to stack or arrange as you please.
Looking for something vintage? Search Etsy for "wire vinyl storage" (or variations) for cute shelves, often under $100.
What if you want to show off your vinyl art? Try turning your collection outward on a series of shelves.
This is also a nice way to present records, as opposed to lining all the spines outward.
These basic blocks allow you to build a shelving unit of your own configuration.
Turns out, Ikea's Molder stool also fits records. It can definitely be painted, too, if you want to spruce it up.
If you don't have a huge collection and are looking for something funky, vintage record boxes can be found on Etsy.
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.
