3 Home Styling Tips for the Music Lover

Turn your home into a cozy place where you can enjoy a relaxing music night


If you’re living with an audiophile, you’d understand how a handful of records can easily turn into crates of LPs, and how a solid sound system and turntable can become part of your furniture. Don't be surprised to see a couple of guitars displayed on walls and audio mixers on coffee tables, too.

To help maintain peace and order, here are stylish ways to tidy up the home and keep the music lover happy—like a well-organized playlist on iTunes:

1. Keep all music-related items in one area.

Set up a corner or a wall where records, mixers, and music instruments can settle. A table can hold mixers and other small items while repurposed boxes and crates can be used to organize records.

2. Organize and display your collection.

A freestanding bookshelf is a good way to file records and would also serve as an impressive musical showcase. You can also style the shelves with your coffee-table books about The Beatles and a few décor pieces.

Guitars can be displayed on a customized wall ledge. Install the shelf at a height where you can easily pick out a guitar within arm's reach.

RL Tip: If you've just started collecting records, a small rack or a trolley is a good place to store them.

3. Carve out a concert corner.

Build a vignette around the music corner—place an armchair or a sofa and a small table. Invite friends or bond with your loved one over conversations on your newly discovered indie band from Iceland. Use this space as a mini concert area or just use it as a simple relaxing nook where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with your favorite music playing in the background.

RL Tip: You can also place your audio corner near the living area or the dining area where family and guests gather.
