Tips for Selecting Office Storage

There is such a vast array of different types of office storage available. Such choice can make it difficult to decide. The following are tips for selecting office storage for your workplace be it a home office or commercial workspace.

There are three main office storage products:

  • filing cabinets
  • bookcases
  • cupboards or cabinets

Filing Cabinets

Ideal for hanging files. Endless choice of shapes and sizes, colours and finishes. You can choose from a simple under desk pedestal with one filing drawer. Ideal where floor space is premium. Or perhaps you need a little larger filing cabinet with additional desk space? Consider a desk high pedestal.

Should you work from home you may prefer a file cabinet to blend in with existing furniture in the home. Ideally you would like your office storage to look like home furniture. Saxen can offer finish samples to help you decide.

If you work in larger, commercial premises you may need a considerably larger lateral filing cabinet. A cupboard with filing drawers may be preferred. Once again, Saxen have a vast repertoire and knowledge base to help you choose the ideal unit for your workspace.


Bookcases are extremely versatile. They can be used for storage of books, box files or storage boxes.

Many office furniture ranges offer optional drawer or door packs too. This allows customisation of a bookcase to fit your ideal office storage.

There are a number of colour choices, finishes and sizes for bookcases too. This makes them an adaptable choice whether you wish to find storage to fit under a window or fill a whole wall.

Cupboards or Cabinets

Cupboards and cabinets cover the widest choice in office storage. Do you seek a printer or scanner storage or a cupboard with sliding doors or perhaps a cabinet with drawers.

There are many things to consider. Sliding doors or tambour cabinets can be the perfect choice for a narrow area where the opening of hinge doors may impede a walkway or take up vital space.

One large cupboard or bookcase with a combination of lockable cupboard doors, an open shelf or two and drawers may provide just the variety you need.

Finally office storage does not need to be boring. There are a number of bright colours and finishes to choose from to brighten up your office. You can also find storage for the smallest spaces which will be compact, jazzy and stylish.
