Some speak of revival; others claim it was never gone: the record. And so this idiosyncratic music format continues – or again, depending on your point of view – finds its way into German households. In the meantime, niche genres and popular and hit music are available on the big black disc. And so suddenly, retro fans and hipsters share the same passion. The record brings people together. And it can continue to enjoy great popularity. Besides being a music history and a sought-after collector’s item, the record is also a highly decorative element in the home.
Similar to books and bookshelves, records create their own atmosphere in the room. Listening to music is not only a multidimensional, physical experience in the truest sense of the word. It also becomes part of the interior design. Records are great for decorating walls. Those who prefer not to pierce their record sleeves with thumbtacks and small nails or ruin them with adhesive tape to hang them on the wall can display their musical decoration differently.
And because anyone can do Expedit and Kallax, here are a few more creative ideas for decorating your home with vinyl records:
Record Covers as Changing Pictures
Record covers are an art in themselves. And it is not uncommon for you to think when designing individual cases how a shame it is when they disappear between all the other panels on the shelf without anyone actually looking at them.
Some creative wall shelves for records start right here. They recognize the decorative value of eye-catching and cult covers and, thanks to their design, allow the covers to be given the attention they deserve.
The great advantage of such “record frames” is that the records’ order can be changed at any time. The cover never gets boring as a mural, and there is space for all the panels behind it. All that’s missing is the right spot on the wall:
Within Easy Reach and Good Looking
A similar notch is struck with these hang-up record shelves. Functionality counts more than just displaying your favorite covers. Nevertheless, it is also characteristic of these models that you can put beautiful covers in scenes.
Here, too, the favorite album or the most unusual cover can be brought to the front or placed on the outside by changing the order. The first glance of every viewer falls on the cover artwork that is particularly worth seeing.
Here, a restrained design is used to let the record sleeves take precedence. Neutral design and practical mounting on the wall let the shelves take a back seat.
Stable Eye-Catcher for Disk Storage
Rustic and massive and completely creative at the same time. Also, these panel shelves can be easily integrated into everyday living. If you are still looking for a chic living room table or seating, you will find it here:
A real eye-catcher made of solid wood is the plate storage in fruit boxes or wine boxes. If you prefer something with modern pizzazz, a clean design, and robust workmanship, you can purchase this record shelf in a fruit crate look:
If you like records and music, you shouldn’t underestimate their storage. Because panels and covers can substantially contribute as a decorative element and create an atmosphere in a room. That’s stylish, neat, and creative, isn’t it ?!
