nice vinyl LP storage solution?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Right now I am using crates but they look ugly to my taste, are there any classier LP storage solutions? Not whole shelves but crate type storage, maybe even coverable to close the LPs inside? Budget's probably $20-$50 per

If you live near an Ikea they have a shelving set up with 13" boxs. It is cheap and works really well. Look for them online.

Expedit is the name of them If i am correct.

buying&building the 4X4 box version was one of my projects during the outage.

it is TOTALLY sexxay.

if you are looking for individual crates that look better than milk crates, TTVJ has some, but they are kind of expensive.

Same thing I would recommend.

Yep, the Expedit. We have two of them in the biggest size (5 x 5 cubes). They also make 4 x 4 and I believe also 2 x 4. pic

Yes, use those. My cousin has about 6,000 LPs in them and they work fine. I'd use them, too, but I built my own rack instead.

I'll repeat the Expedit recommendation; it is an uncommonly cheap and good-looking solution. There is only one downside: Each cube "shelf" is only rated, IIRC, for 13 pounds. But one linear foot of vinyl is like 45 pounds! So, at the very least, only load vinyl on the bottom shelves first. And don't hold us liable if it fails on you (but I don't recall anybody having theirs fail).

That said, I have 6-7 shelves of a 4x4 full, and it's working great.

Six foot steel utility shelving. My house is full of it.

One cube holds about 65 LPs, cheapish purpose built solution in 18mm MDF.

As nice and easy to deal with as those look...they are going to be far from ideal once you get a few thousand LPs or more. Something you can put from floor to ceiling, (shelves or stackable boxes) against a wall, or on there own, is the only way to go.

One or two of those to keep LPs in my listening room, and just change them out or add new unlistened to vinyl would be nice though.
