Even in this highly digital age – we still hold on to hard copies. After all, every music lover needs a convenient place to store their beloved original albums…
Not matter how big your CD collection is, CD’s are one of those things that can be kept all over the house and if you don’t have some proper storage in place, you’ll find they soon start lying about on every surface in your flat or house – or even worse, they end up on the floor where they can be easily damaged or lost.
This often leads up to the number one thing that makes your home a mess – clutter!
Clutter makes our homes feel unpleasant to live in, and also makes it almost impossible to find anything. Who hasn’t searched through piles of papers or CDs to find the right thing, only to have to go through the pile again and again? Very frustrating!
Therefore it might be time for you to consider getting some sturdy shelving for your CD collections – but how do you go about choosing the best CD shelving for your living space?
Shelfstore can offer some great solutions, but there are a number of things to consider before you purchase your shelving.
First, think about how many CDs you are going to be storing. Is it going to be a matter of dozens? Hundreds? Or even thousands? If so, you’re going to need a lot of shelving – to find out how much you’re going to need – stack a number of CDs together and measure them. This gives you the measurements you’ll need to calculate how big you want your unit to be.
Next you need to think about the space you have available – where are you going to put your new shelving system? Do you have enough space for it? CD shelves are usually pretty narrow – only as wide as the CDs themselves – so CD shelving generally only needs a narrow space and won’t take up much room.
It’s also great to consider unusual places in your home where shelving can be tucked away – you can turn a neglected corner into a valuable storage area. Not matter what space you have, the Shelfstore system allows you to design your shelving to fit into many unusually-shapes places, because its modular shelves are extremely flexible.
Fixing the shelves securely to the wall is, of course, a must, and the Shelfstore website offers a step-by-step pictorial guide to making sure your shelving is firmly fixed.
One thing is for sure, is that your home is going to look a lot smarter once your CD shelving is in place and the CDs installed on the shelves. The timeless design ensures our shelves suit all homes and workplaces, whatever your style. You could even add your own personal touch to your shelves where you can paint or stain your unit any colour to match with the rest of your home décor.
