Do I need a filing cabinet?


If you’re not working from home, you may wonder if a file cabinet is even necessary. However, the great thing about filing cabinets is their versatility. Along with storing paperwork, they can help organize odds and ends like paint swatches, recipes, magazines, photos, user manuals and much more. Don’t be afraid to move your file cabinet to a room other than the office. These cabinets can add a touch of style and functionality to any room.

What kinds of file cabinets are there, and which one do I need?


During your search you may encounter two distinct types of filing cabinets: lateral and vertical. Here’s a quick comparison of the two styles to make your choice easier:
• Vertical: These are your most common style and feature a tall, thin design. They’re perfect for organizing all of your important documents and papers. Plus, their overall footprint is smaller since they make good use of vertical space.
• Lateral: A lateral file cabinet is shorter and wider than its vertical counterpart. Its shape makes it perfect for storing oversized papers or items that need to be stored flat. As a bonus, they can be used as a desk or an extra table because of their short height and wide top.
• Portable: Don’t forget, there’s always an option for a filing cabinet on wheels. If you need to move your files with you when you leave the room, this is a great type to have.

Do filing cabinets come with any security features?


It’s natural to want to keep your important documents locked up and stored safely away. There are a number of safety features available for your file storage. Opt for a fireproof file cabinet to protect documents like passports, birth certificates and banking information from a fire. A locking file cabinet will keep burglars or unwanted visitors away. You can even have the best of both worlds and invest in a file cabinet that’s both fireproof and lockable.
