For Vinyl Record Fans: 6 More Options for Storing the LPs

vinyl record storage and display unit

Those who still own vinyl records are often passionate about their collections - and often looking for good storage options. I've addressed this before - see Related Posts at the end - but here are some more interesting products, in a range of prices.

Let's start with the one above, called Volume, from Test Collective. It allows you to both store your albums and display some of them; it's made of bamboo and Corian. I wrote to the folks at Test Collective, inquiring about the availability of this product, and got the following answer: "Yes, Volume is available for purchase. These are handmade in the U.S. and are $2,200 plus shipping. FYI, we are currently developing a less expensive flat pack version that will be available soon." [via Inhabitat]
Update on Jan. 10, 2014: The Test Collective website has disappeared.

On the much less expensive side, The Dormy House has these media storage boxes.

Have a large collection? Considering something custom-built? Scott Jordan Furniture of New York City designed this wall unit for storing LPs (and a turntable and other equipment).

If you don't want to go custom, you could consider the LP record racks from Gothic Cabinet Craft, available in a number of sizes - with the LP record tower above being the largest. You can get these unfinished, or in your choice of 20 finishes: cherry, maple, teak, white, ebony, turquoise, etc. The company says that each row holds 150+ LPs.

LP storage bins

And finally, there's the LPBIN; each one stores 560 LPs.

Coincidentally, IkeaHacker just featured this neat
Vinyl Records and CDs sideboard.

I personally don't have very many LPs and just keep them in a Crosley carrying case.
