Organizing Your DVD & Music Collection

Stack of vinyl records

Stack of vinyl recordsWinter is here and it’s time to get cozy. No matter if you’re more of a hot chocolate person or a cider person, music and movies are great ways to get out of the winter blues and settle in. Here are some ways you can get your DVDs or other collections in order from the professional organizers at Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston and Franklin.

Go Digital

Try switching to a digital alternative this year. With so many platforms and options out there, it’s a great way to keep up-to-date with the latest music, maintain your favorite albums and TV shows, while limiting how much clutter you have in your home. Pandora, Spotify, and Apple Music are some of the most popular methods to cut down on your CD collections. Pandora and Spotify both offer free and subscription services. Hulu and Netflix are some options to eliminate your DVD collection. Even Redbox can make a room full of DVDs a thing of the past.

Keep the Record Player Out

Are you more of a fan of the analog days? Keep the record player out to make it easy to listen to your favorite LPs. Having adequate space for your sound system and record player will only make organizing around it easier. Having this piece of equipment already out carves out storage space from your vinyl collection, but there are plenty of other ways to maximize storage for your records. Keeping your record player in an easily accessible area also makes it easy to keep the tunes going.

Sort and Categorize

If you’re absolutely adverse to the idea of selling your boxed Star Wars set, we don’t blame you. Keep your items organized and sorted for the easiest access and make sure to take advantage of your entire space. With DVDs and CDs, or any music collection, you have a number of options. Using the genre can be helpful to categorize, or you can just keep everything alphabetized. If you’re looking for a unique system, you can try organizing by color. Although this is usually most seen with books, there’s no reason why it can’t look as stunning with your media unit.

If you’re looking for more storage for your collection, try using a custom entertainment center. Units manufactured and installed by Closet & Storage Concepts are custom-made for you, so you can be sure that there’s enough room for all of your items whether you have DVDs, cassettes, or vinyl. A built-in home media center is also a great way to keep the record player in a single spot and give you enough room for all of your sound system needs.

Get cozy by curling up to a good movie this winter, and don’t forget to call Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston, Massachusetts to create the storage space you always wanted.
