Sometimes it’s better to make a highlight of your filing cabinet than to pretend it’s not there or try to hide it. The fact is, we’ve all got important papers and records we need to store, and it takes space to do that. A bright color can be enough to make a filing cabinet a showpiece, and when it’s set against a wall that helps it shine, so much the better. This chalkboard backdrop is just what this orange filing cabinet needed to make it really pop. Home offices are all about work and getting things done, so they are well suited to an industrial look. Find a metallic or rustic black filing cabinet and you’re one step closer to creating a workspace with this kind of edge. Next steps? A chair and desk that sing along with it. Think leather, aged wood and function over form. A filing system with multiple drawers removes the need for your files to hang vertically, and can be far less imposing in a home office. When it looks as good as this filing cabinet, there’s no reason not to make a change.
Some metal file cabinets have stops that prevent more than two file drawers being open at one time. Wood lateral file cabinets are easier to incorporate into an office decorating scheme because they come in colors that match other office furniture. Wood lateral file cabinets are typically made from medium density, laminated fiberboard and usually have ball-bearing slides for smooth drawer opening and closing. They are generally made to hold either business size files or legal size files. They come in styles that resemble low profile dressers, with decorative pulls, and they also come in sleeker styles with "half moon" shaped indents built in instead of pulls or handles. Wood finishes of every kind are available, including paint finishes. Lateral file cabinets - particularly those made from wood - are very popular in home offices, particularly when the home office doubles as a bedroom, dining room, or family room. They look much more "homey" than standard metal vertical file cabinets, and are much easier to incorporate into any decor scheme. Less expensive models require assembly, but usually the only tool needed is a screwdriver. More expensive models will be pre-assembled.
Lateral file cabinets are often chosen because of their easier accessibility over that of vertical file cabinets, and sometimes because the "footprint" of a lateral file cabinet works better than that of a regular vertical cabinet. Rather than the files going front to back, with lateral file cabinets, the files go from side to side. One advantage to the shape of lateral file cabinets is that they blend in better with other office furniture. They also give a certain amount of space on top that people can use to store books or supplies, or to add a functional hutch to add more non-file storage. Wood lateral file cabinets are well liked for their less institutional look when compared to standard metal file cabinets. Other disadvantages to metal file cabinets are their sharp edges, and their tendency to tip forward if too many drawers are open at once.
