According to a recent news article via the BBC, vinyl records are getting back into the groove with their own charts!
Many of us are remarkably resilient in the digital age, with everyone now so used to streaming and downloading, people are starting to miss the physical side of music. With vinyl records coming, this now fills that gap in the market.
Seven years ago the number of vinyl record sales was 0% and now it has risen to 1.5%. There were 1.29million vinyl records sold back in 2014 and sales are set to grow by another 70% in 2015.
With more of you wanting to fill this musical gap, you’ll need to start thinking about how you’re going to make room for your new vinyl collection in your home. After all, vinyl records are practically double the size of CD’s – so the more storage you have, the better!
When it comes to storing a collection like this, our customers have advised us that they prefer to use shelving as opposed to racks as it is a much better storage solution. And with the Shelfstore system you can create a storage solution to suit your specific requirements.
Firstly, you need to think about how many vinyl records you have or are going to be storing. Then depending on how many you have, chances are, you’re going to need a lot of shelving!
To find out just how much you need, stack you vinyl’s together and measure the height. This will give you more of an idea of what measurements you’ll need to calculate how big you want your unit to be.
Next, consider the space you have available – where are you going to put your new shelving system? Do you have enough space for it? Do you have any small space that you could be made use of? Consider unusual places in your home where shelving can be tucked away – you’ll soon be able to turn that neglected corner into a valuable storage area!
So what are you waiting for? Start planning your new vinyl collection now – follow the charts and get the right storage solution in place to suit both you and your home.
