Like many AT readers, we have a big collection of CDs. My husband is an audiophile and he wants to keep them rather than store our music on the computer, so we've been looking for a good storage solution. We decided to store our music in a line of white boxes underneath our floating credenza, and so far we're enjoying the system...
Eventually, we want to create a low platform that will get the boxes up off the floor and make cleaning easier, but for now this system is functional and we like the look.
The boxes (which we'd previously been using to store random odds and ends) are from the Container Store. They're a little on the expensive side, but we like the design and they're very sturdy. Other similar options can be found at IKEA, office supply stores, and discount stores.
One of the things we like best about this system is that we didn't really have to buy anything new, just a couple extra boxes to complete the row. It also allows us to make use of underutilized space and keep all our CDs together without having to add a piece of furniture.
Next on our list: we need to tackle album storage. Right now, our records are lined up in a stack behind our sofa...not the best solution.
