DVDs are popular because of its large storage capacity and higher performance level. No wonder why so many people are fond of collecting DVDs, especially those that store great movies. But the problem here is: where to store the storage device? DVDs are very sensitive that with just a simple scratch, you could lose handful of important information. You should not allow your DVDs to be scattered like crumpled papers on the floor. DVDs need to be taken cared of properly and they should be stored in the right place.
The wood the cabinet is made of will be a factor, as well. Cabinets made of pine or other extremely soft woods are very cheap. Particle board or MDF cabinets are even cheaper. However, these aren’t the strongest materials around, and they tend to bow over time, especially if much weight is put in them. MDF can also be very heavy. A natural hardwood cabinet will cost a lot more than these cheaper models, but it’ll also last almost forever. Oak and maple cabinets are a real lifetime investment.
When you put a substantial amount of weight on a caster system, you should make sure that the wheels can handle the load as well as the overall structure of the dolly. When a caster can’t handle the weight of the item it’s carrying, there is potential for tipping which is a definite safety hazard. Casters come in various materials as well as sizes, with features such as breaking systems, swivel and rigid. Typical 5” caster wheels can be made of Urethane, Thermo rubber and even Steel. If you need a large platform it’s recommended to have wheel brakes, swivel casters on the ends and rigid casters in the middle of your platform cart.
For something like DVD storage, the cabinets will also have room for CD’s. They can be part of the installation in an entertainment system or stand alone and rotate so that you have easy access to all of your music and movies. They are usually made of wood or have wood veneers and due to so many companies manufacturing these products you can find them in several designs. Because of this fact they are easily customizable and can be as large as the wall of your room.
First, check your budget and cabinet prices. They might cost more than you’d think. You’ll make it up in time, since wood storage cabinets can last for such a long time. However, you don’t want to make elaborate plans and be surprised by prices you didn’t think you’d have to pay. Many cabinets are modular, allowing you to choose one at a time for your storage needs. Over time, you can collect a full matching set for your home.
