Every record collection needs a good home. So if you started one, you’ll soon find out that storing your record collection and turntable setup can be quite a challenge. The most important rule is to never stock your record one on another. The most healthy way of keeping your collection are rows of vertically set records, but not too tight – just enough to easily take them out and keep them vertical at the same time. The result of keeping records in stacks or leaned rows is warping them. Below you find a couple of neat record storage ideas for your inspiration.
