Reasons and advantages of using a DVD storage unit

Do I really need to use a DVD storage unit?
For those with only a few DVDs, the use of a box, a small cupboard or even a drawer in a desk or bureau might suffice for the storage needs. As the collection grows though, your previous method of storage can soon get a bit out of hand. This is where you'll need to find another solution. What's so good about DVD storage units?
The amount of DVD storage solutions are manifold and there is something that will suit the taste of everyone. These can come in the form of a piece of furniture for you to store your DVDs in - not only will you have a working, functional piece of new furniture but it can also be chosen to suit the design and/or layout of your home. These also allow you to have some organisation to your DVDs as there is nothing worse than having to search through a drawer or box crammed full of DVDs to find the one you are after.

Types of DVD storage

DVD storage racks
A DVD rack is usually a tall, thin, tower-shaped object that has individual slots for you to horizontally store your DVDs in. Sometimes DVD towers come as DVD shelving racks whereby the DVDs are stored vertically on several shelves. DVD cabinets
DVD cabinets come in all manner of shapes, types and styles. Usually these are roughly wardrobe-size (although there are smaller varieties) but only have the depth of just over the width of a DVD storage case. These will have a number of shelves for you to store your DVDs. They can be open-fronted or have doors. The doors can be glass-fronted or sometimes wooden, hiding the DVDs from view. Modular storage
Becoming increasingly popular, modular DVD storage often comes as cubes (although there are other shapes), whereby you place the cubes for storage in any shape or manner that you desire. These are usually open-fronted.
