A well-equipped workplace requires storage space solutions in the form of shelves or filing cabinets. Cabinets that you can position under the tabletop or next to the table offer you additional storage space directly at your desk. Office containers are available in many different designs.
Desk cabinets are versatile and therefore offer many uses. Super compact ones create space for a small thing of everyday work, such as copy paper, a bar of chocolate or paper clips. The number of drawers plays its role too. If you want to use your cabinet for storing A4 documents, you should look for cabinets with a depth of at least 30 cm.
The standard desks are about 80 cm high. You should choose a desk cabinet with a similar height to your desk. If you want to place it underneath the desk, choose the one slightly shorter.
When it comes to width, always keep enough legroom. (In case the cabinet is placed under the desk)
Plastic – robust and durable against scratches
Metal – low weight and easy manipulation
Wood – natural look, evokes warmth, easy-care surface
Many surfaces are painted or foiled and therefore very easy to clean. It is sufficient to use a slightly damp cloth and mild cleaning solution, if necessary.
If you want to store important documents, hard drives, keys etc, it is advisable to purchase a lockable model.
