How to select a CD storage rack

A lot of the clutter around televisions, entertainment centres or worktops can be attributed to CDs. CD storage racks store and organise CDs so that they can be easily retrieved when required. Selecting a CD storage rack requires one to deliberate over the storage requirements, intended location and personal preferences in appearance. Read further for more information on how to select a CD storage rack.

Storage requirements

Before setting out to buy the CD storage rack, you need to consider some factors.
Location Often CD storage racks are located close to entertainment centres and you may consider buying a unit which integrates assorted media storage. Smaller collections, which are required frequently, can be placed close at hand by your workstation. The space available will also guide the style of the CD rack. Size If you are an avid CD collector, you are likely to have a large storage requirement. You can choose to buy multiple shelf units or go for larger storage cases depending on your preference and space constraints. If you go for smaller shelving racks, you can distribute them over multiple locations. A useful tip is to buy a single large piece to house the collection and a smaller rack to store frequently used ones. This precludes the need to browse through the collection when looking for the favourite CDs.

Mounting styles

Floor-standing These are suitable when there are no space constraints. Such units should not cause an obstruction to the movement. While tall cabinets are useful for large collections, you can opt for shorter ones which can even fit below a window. Corner CD stands are provided with revolving shelves. Desk top Desk top CD holders serve a similar function as bookends and keep your CD collection within arm’s reach. Since they act as desktop accessories, their designs often give emphasis to décor. Wall mounted Wall mounted shelf storage saves floor area and allows better visibility and access. Some wall CD rack designs offer an option of mounting horizontally, vertically or even diagonally.

Decor

CD cabinets They generally have glass shutters which may be swinging or sliding. Minimalistic designs These add a more contemporary touch. They may have dowel bars which replace CD shelves or have small slots where CDs can get anchored. Sculptural designs They are common in CD towers. They may have curvilinear shapes like waves or helical forms. Contemporary styles are popular and compatible with the associated home entertainment equipment. Novelty in styling This also makes for charming pieces, particularly for desktops. You will find a lot of creativity in display when looking for such pieces and they also make excellent gifts. Browsing design catalogues for CD rack storage styles can be a useful resource.

How to choose the perfect chair

How to choose the perfect chair

The first beds may have been made in the Neolithic era. They were made of rough-hewn rock and resembled benches more than chairs. In 20,000 BC, there were chairs in the tombs in China, and they were simple and without backs - more like stools. The Egyptians had chairs and stools as well, but it was not until the ancient Greece that the chairs were used by all. In the 15th century, the chair became lighter, but chair development did not stop there.
