Whether you’ve just moved into a new place, looking to redecorate, or just ready to finally show off some of your favorite exclusive albums, displaying framed albums is a great way to use record covers as art. Vinyl record covers display not only beautiful album artwork but allows the music lover to be reminded of their favorite albums and artists.
A record album frame is a perfect way to safely, securely, and stylishly display your collection of records. Even if you may not be interested in spending very much on new vinyl record frames, there are plenty of great options out there to suit your style and your wallet. Here are some of our favorite affordable LP record frames to show off one or more of your favorite single or double albums.
The Basic Vinyl Record Frame
Let’s start with something basic. This frame from Michael’s craft store is a more traditional approach to a vinyl record frame. Coming in black or white, this is an easy, simple way to frame your records. They come in a pack of two so a great way to stock up if you are creating a larger wall display.
Although they are regular $29.99, they are currently on sale for $14.99. And remember that’s for two vinyl record frames! You can order these online, or get crafty and head to your nearest Michael’s location.
The Brass Record Frame
We love gold or brass accents, and if you do too you’ll love this option. The Project 62 brand frames from Target are a beautiful brass vinyl record frame and are a great option for a couple of reasons. It is a thinner, more minimal design, and they fit both a vintage or modern aesthetic.
What we really love is that they have perfectly matching picture frames in other sizes. Do you also have some concert posters, ticket stubs, or photos from your favorite shows? Frame everything with your records and create an amazing gallery wall with matching frames. And these frames are only $12.00 each so a great budget-friendly option. Online ordering is available, but who doesn’t love a Target run?
The Silver Vinyl Frame
Silver may be considered second place, but we still think this is a first-place contender for your framed records. If you can visit an Ikea location in person, take a look at the LOMVIKEN frame. This aluminum frame is sleek, simple, and silver. Even better, it’s only $7.99. This is yet another opportunity to add matching picture frames of different sizes to not only display vinyl records, but some of your favorite memorabilia to create an awesome music lovers gallery wall. And why not grab some Swedish meatballs or a coffee while you’re there, and maybe even recreate your favorite scene from 500 Days of Summer.
The Mix & Match Frames
If you’re looking for color options try these vinyl record frames from Urban Outfitters. They come in five different colors and two different materials. The black, gold, and silver are made out of aluminum while the natural, washed black, and white frames are made from pinewood. Great for mixing and matching if you want to experiment with different color combinations for your record display among the two materials types.
They are priced at just $15, but if you are wanting more than one they are offering a 2 for $20 deal so great for buying multiple LP album frames.
The Invisible Record Display Frame
Consider this option available on Amazon if you want the record covers to be center stage. These invisible vinyl record wall mounts are two-in-one so you can use them as a vinyl record wall mount or simply use them as a shelf display. That’s great especially if you want easier access to the album, instead of having them semi-permanently mounted.
These plastic frames are also adjustable to fit all vinyl album sizes. This is ideal to display a double album. And coming in at $7.99 for one, the more your buy the more they decrease in price with 5 frames coming in at only $29.99.
The Bulk Vinyl Record Frame
If you already know you’d like a full record display of at least six records, here’s a great deal from Walmart. For just $42.79 you can order six identical black frames. This is an affordable way to instantly create a clean, contemporary display. Since you’re getting six vinyl record frames, they come in at only about $7 each.
These frames are a traditional, black aluminum design so they can match with almost any decor. Great for a studio, office, or more. This is a frugal way to get those top six albums displayed and hung up altogether.
With all of these great options, you’re going to want to grow your vinyl record collection even more! Find some amazing albums (with amazing album covers too) from our Record Store.
