We can help you create a Vinyl Station that suits your requirements. Such as, the aesthetics of your space, and to store your record collection and hi-fi equipment.
Colour: colour code, or the colours and percentage of each
Capacity: how many records
Equipment: specifications of hi-fi equipment
Functionality: how many flipping buckets

A Vinyl Station takes up a relatively small amount of floor space, considering the functionality and storage it delivers. An efficient storage solution that allows you to bring you records back into your living area, whilst introducing a feature piece of furniture to your home. But mostly importantly, a custom designed Vinyl Station, will encourage you to flip discs and enjoy your catalogue of records more often.
Record cabinet specifications to fit your turntable and hi-fi equipment
We recommend all Vinyl Stations are around 370mm to 400m deep (front to back) to fit your turntable and amplifier. You can choose from a wide range of colours, or create your own colour mix. Plus, you can choose to include none, one, two or more ‘flipping buckets’ that present your collections’ artwork.
Create a Vinyl Station to suit the aesthetics of your home
Choosing the right piece of furniture includes considering your home’s aesthetics. First, decide if you want the new piece to suit, or to stand out and be a ‘feature’. If the aim is to suit your room’s interior style, consider the colours across the room, and then explore options in the Colour Booklet.
If you would like to create a bespoke colour mix, we can do that. Just let us know the colours you want, and the percentage of each colour in the mix. We will share some examples to help, and we’ll guide you through this process.
Record cabinet capacity
Tell us the number of records you want to store, and we will suggest a design to suit. To give you an idea, the ‘Janis’ and ‘Joni’ Vinyl Stations both hold around 300 records. Whilst the ‘Jimi’ can store 250 to 500.
Record cabinet size
As most turntables are around 350mm to 380mm deep (back to front, plus you need to consider a little more depth from power and audio out cords), we recommend 400mm as the depth your Vinyl Station – front to back. The width is the key measurement, to fit the position in your room, and to ensure enough capacity to store your records. The turntable bench width is especially important to fit your current turntable. Overall width includes the turntable bench, and number of flipping buckets. If you’re looking for a specific height, that presents the turntable and bucket at your waist, we will create a solution that’s right for you.
