As your LP collection continues to grow, so do your storage needs. Storing LPs doesn't mean they need to be taped up in a box and put away to be found years later. LPs are regaining popularity with new decorating and storage ideas, and a proper storage system will have you enjoying your LP collection daily.

Shelf Displays

Using a shelf display is a great way to store and display your collection. If you're on a budget, use items around your living space as storage devices until you can afford the right one. Bookcases can work great as storage if they are deep enough to hold the LPs. Doubling your entertainment centre as an LP storage device is a great way to combine the function of your entertainment centre with the display of your collection. If you are looking to spend some money on a new storage piece, shop at flea markets, antique stores and department stores for affordable storage furniture.


Boxes are universal storage devices. Flea market vendors often display LP records in milk crates because its roughly the right width. If you want to store some LPs in your kitchen, look into buying some milk crates to enhance your kitchen decor. Decorative wooden boxes can store a large amount of LPs and can be stored within other pieces of furniture. Wicker baskets serve the same function and usually have handles for easy carrying.

Shelf and Box Combination

A shelf and box combination can solely be used for your LP collection. You can use the boxes to store LPs you do not wish to display. This allows you to see the LPs you want and change the display around when you need new LPs to look at. Having all LPs in a shelf and box combination unit keeps them organised in one area of your living space without having to search around for miscellaneous LPs.

IVAR Storage System

The IVAR storage system is made by IKEA and can be bought for around £125. The storage system comes with extra shelves for the purpose of changing storage needs. The wood is untreated and can be oil-treated, stained or waxed.

Crosley Record Storage Case

The Crosley storage case is a portable carrying case that holds 30 records. The case protects LPs from water damage and blunt objects for safe travel. A handle, corner protectors, and a lid-snap closing feature are all included with this product. The case starts at £40.

Gothic Millwork LP Rack

This LP rack produced by Gothic Millwork offers six divided storage sections for LPs and space on top of the rack for turntables and other music accessories. Adequate space is provided within each section so that your LPs will not warp while being stored.
