Never store them laying flat, always vertical to prevent warp-age. I store mine in plastic totes with lid, even though the vinyl are in protective slip sleeves.
Always keep them in a controlled environment, never put them in places such as an attic or basement.

I store mine in 6mil poly bag sleeves and I always remove the LP from the outer cardboard jacket to prevent the LP from marking the cover. I keep them in a cabinet that is easily accessible... no point in keeping a collection locked away where you can never see it. You don't really need anything special unless you want to store them away... some interesting ideas here... http://www.sleevecityusa.com/record-storage-s/1832.htm

For storage, I use Ikea's Expedit Shelving units. They come in different sizes. A 4x4 square unit sells for $139. Each square can hold about 75 single LPs or about 1200 LPs snuggly.

Ikea also offers accessories for the shelving units, like drawers and cabinet doors. So they are quite versitile.

It is a great investment, I have access to all my records without stacking boxes, or thumbing through boxes. It really cleaned up my space, significantly.
