Netflix Blu-Ray/DVD Shelf
Thought this would be a fun way to organize and display your Blu-Rays: a shelf that looks like the Netflix Instant homepage. Now you can organize your films by genres, while displaying your favorite films front and center. The displayed movies are actual Blu-Ray cases which are held in place like photos in a picture frame. So not only do they display nicely, they are also easily accessible. Each shelf folds down to reveal a selection of Blu-Rays:
Another way to go is to have a whole bunch of shelves (one shelf for each displayed movie on the front of the shelf) that would open like a filing cabinet:
I prefer the first system because it would be quicker to find the film you want, however the filing cabinet system could store a higher number of films.
As for labeling each shelf in a fashion similar to how Netflix labels each row (Action & Adventure, Comedy, Documentaries, etc.), decals or stickers could be used, but I would prefer a card display – like the front of a filing cabinet.
To preserve the appearance of the Netflix page, no shelf handles would be used. Instead push-magnets would be used to open and close each drawer.
I doubt Netflix will be getting into the furniture scene anytime soon, but this could be a fun DIY project.
