There are two main types of office storage cabinets. Which one works best for you will depend a lot on the makeup of your office, or the place in which you plan on storing and using your office storage cabinet.
The two main types are:
- Vertical office cabinets. These function much like a wardrobe, as large, vertical shelved units. Some have drawers, others just have shelves with optional accessories such as vertical file storage. In most cases, they will have at least one pair of vertical doors to open, to best keep all of your office storage supplies out of sight as much as is possible.
Which one works for you depends a lot on how you use your office! For example, if you don't have a lot of floor space and you need to depend instead on taking advantage of your vertical space, you should likely consider a vertical office cabinet. On the other hand, if you have a lot of room to work with, going with a credenza is a good choice. With a credenza, you will likely have to plan on accessing the storage from a seated position, so positioning it near a desk or a natural place where you might have a chair will likely allow for the most ease of use. Then, you'll have vertical space in which to hang shelves, art, or other visual works.
