Best Vinyl Record Holders And Displays—Unique Storage Racks, Shelves, And More

When it comes to keeping your vinyl records in good condition, you want to make sure you’ve got the proper storage. The original method used to be milk crates, as their dimensions were typically around the same height as the record for storing them vertically, but these days it can be quite hard to find a milk crate with the right dimensions.

Many times, the crates you find at the store will be just under the height you need to keep your records standing tall.

The Proper Way to Store Vinyl Records

The reason we talk about storing your records vertically is so they don’t warp. If you stack your records on top of each other as you would newspaper, the additional weight will come down on the vinyl and warp them, thus making them wobbly and uneven. An uneven record means it won’t play as well, and sometimes storing this way will even cease them to be playable.

Other factors to consider in your record storage include temperature, humidity, and light. Make sure to store your records in a cool place in your home that’s void of humidity. Heat will 100% cause warping. And as for light, avoid keeping your collection near windows where they can be exposed to sunlight all day. Not only will it raise the temperature, but exposure to Ultraviolet rays can damage the record too.
