Post hotandserious' 6000+ BRD/DVD Storage Solution Gallery

Hi There -

I made a short video showing how I've squeezed 6000+ Blus & DVDs into my apartment with the intent of helping folks who may be facing storage issues.

It's a little shaky & the audio could be louder, so apologies...

I also took a few photos...

Fortunately, my wife and I have a large living room in our apartment, so it doubles as our home theater.
The back wall is where we keep all of our discs.

DVDs that don't come in traditional cases go on the shelving units mounted on the wall.

We can't easily reach the top shelf, so boxes on the very top are empty and for display only.

I primarily collect older films and 3D discs.

Here are some Blu-ray 3D discs in one of our three large spinning towers.
These towers are the largest capacity I've been able to find.

Each tower has a capacity of 756 DVDs, but since blu-rays in the USA
come in thinner cases, you can get 34 BRDs per shelf. With 7 shelves per side
(when spaced equally), that comes to a capacity of 952 blu-rays.

The towers are represented as holding more (1056 Blu-rays),
so technically you could stack a few in on their sides, etc - but it will look a bit awkward.
Results will be different with thicker UK BRD cases, etc.

Here's a detail of the center shelving with some Arrow Video Blus, Cinerama movies,
and a couple of Charlton Heston epics.

Center shelves and more 3D Blu-rays.

This cart fits nicely under the center shelves.

More 3D discs and some EC slipcased box sets on the bookshelf to the right.

More books.

DVDS that originally came in cases have their cases removed,
are inserted in vinyl sleeves, and are filed in these drawers.

I had the drawers custom made. We use divider cards to organize by genre, star or director.

Myrna Loy rates a divider.

Here are some DVDs in the vinyl sleeves.

...and some Blu-Rays in the vinyl sleeves too.

I talk a bit about how I arrived at this storage system in the video link up at the top. It will also give you a better look at the discs and a quick overview of the room including our ceiling-mounted projector and screen.

If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them.
