Apothecary CD Storage

Updated

You might not know this but an apothecary drawer system is not an unusual thing. Actually, the card catalog you see at most libraries back in the day was similar to the apothecary chest of drawers. So why not take that concept and use them to store your CD's? We have a bunch of apothecary CD storage ideas and they're all in this collection.

Traditional CD Library Storage

Traditional CD Library Storage

Available in cherry, black, or a mixture of white and antique silver, this library storage unit is made from manufactured wood. It features a double door design and windowpane accents, with four fixed shelves and two more adjustable ones within.

Designer Advice:

Perfect for a study or corner of a living room, this unit will add a distinguished vibe to any space. We recommend pairing it with furniture that has traditional accents, too, as it will look out of place with modern pieces. Due to the wider width between shelves, you’ll be able to store books as well as CDs inside.

Slim Apothecary CD Cabinet

Slim Apothecary CD Cabinet

Williston Forge

Coming with personalization labels for a charming accent touch, this cabinet has 12 drawers that are equipped to hold 144 CDs. You can choose from a walnut, cherry, or oak finish. However, note that this cabinet can accommodate CDs only.

Designer Advice:

The retro look of this unit would look stunning paired with mid-century modern furniture. Place next to a tapered leg chair in a mustard hue – the mustard will bring out the rich undertones of the walnut and oak finishes. If you opt for cherry, go for a more neutral décor scheme instead so your room doesn’t look too dark.

Buying Guide

Maintain your apothecary Cd storage by organizing your CDs in alphabetical order, in order of most frequently used, or according to the genre to keep things easy to find when you need them. Dusting and regular wiping with a damp microfiber cloth and dish soap will also keep things neat and tidy on the outside.

If you're wondering whether your apothecary Cd storage is going to match your modern interior, here are a few tips to ensure it does. Choose a common color scheme to make your outdated and modern pieces of furniture come together.

So if you have a predominant color scheme in the room, try spray painting your Cd storage in the same color or a complementary one.  Try playing around with your lighting options as well. In addition to the apothecary Cd storage, introduce a 17th-century French mirror to add character and reflect the light.

Ultimately, focus on creating a balance and not allowing anything to clash with your personal style so that you have a cohesive look.
