Whether your office is small or large, there are considerable benefits to using a filing cabinet. While much of the world has gone digital these days, several important documents, files, and folders yet need to be kept in physical form. Some documents are also confidential, so you may want to consider a lockable filing cabinet to keep everything safe.
Using filing cabinets has many benefits in an office:
– Keeping your office organized and tidy. It helps to reduce clutter and keep your workspace neat and tidy.
– Increasing productivity. When everything is organized and in its place, you can find what you need quickly and get down to business.
– Protecting your documents. Storing important documents in a filing cabinet keeps them safe from damage or loss.
– They are cost-effective and are an affordable way to keep your office organized and running smoothly.
– Creating a professional appearance. A well-organized office with filing cabinets sends a positive message to clients and customers.
In addition, they can add to your office aesthetics. Whether through a beautiful wooden timber filing cabinet or an ultra-modern one, you can definitely lift the image of your office.
Unsurprisingly, there’s a vast range of filing cabinets. The type you choose largely depends on how you intend to use them or your office space. However, you may prefer a particular style because it suits your other office décor.
Most filing cabinets are either wooden, which provides a rustic, yet modern look, or the popular metal filing cabinets. Whichever suits your needs best, you’ll find them at Direct Office.
Here are some of the different styles to choose from.
Vertical filing cabinet
Vertical filing cabinets make great use of your available office space because they are relatively slim. However, they can include 1, 2, 3 or 4 drawers, giving you plenty of room for document storage. This is a type of file storage system that takes up less floor space than traditional cabinets. Vertical cabinets are typically taller and narrower than horizontal cabinets, making them ideal for small office spaces. In addition to saving space, vertical cabinets also offer easier access to files since they can be placed directly next to a desk or workstation. Vertical filing cabinets are available in various sizes, materials, and finishes to suit any need.
Lateral file cabinet
Lateral file cabinets are a type of filing cabinet that is used to store documents. These are much wider than vertical cabinets, meaning you can easily store larger documents and are also long and narrow, with drawers extending from one side to the other. Lateral file cabinets are typically made of metal or wood and can be free-standing or wall-mounted. They are also available as 1, 2, 3 or 4 drawer filing cabinets, so you have plenty of options to choose from.
Lateral file cabinets are an ideal storage solution for both home and office storage settings. They are spacious and efficient, and they can help to keep your desk or workspace organized.
Lockable filing cabinet
You’ll find these types of office cabinets in all different designs, both lateral and vertical, and made from wood and metal. A lockable filing cabinet is a great way to keep your important documents safe and secure. Additionally, many cabinets come with multiple drawers, allowing you to organize your files in an efficient and effective way. Lockable filing cabinets are an essential piece of office furniture for any business owner or manager. Not only do they protect your most important documents, but they also help you to keep your office organized and tidy.
Desk drawer cabinet
These cabinets are fantastic for sliding under your desk and giving you easy access to everything you need. They usually have one or two standard drawers for stationery or other items, with a larger filing drawer underneath—the perfect solution for under-desk storage.
Mobile filing cabinet
Mobile filing cabinets are an essential piece of office furniture for any business. Not only do they provide a place to store important documents, but they also help to keep the office organized and tidy. They are typically made of metal or wood and come in various sizes to accommodate different needs. Most have multiple drawers that can be locked, and they are often equipped with wheels so that they can be easily moved around the office. Mobile filing cabinets are an ideal choice for businesses that need a flexible storage solution that can be easily relocated.
Drawer filing cabinet
Regardless of your style, you can also choose the number of drawers you’d like. You can get a single drawer filing cabinet with one quite large, deep drawer. Alternatively, 2, 3 and 4-drawer cabinets are also available depending on your needs. For example, a small home office doesn’t usually require a large 4-drawer cabinet, but a busy office probably does.
