There are two main types of office cabinets. Which one is best for you depends a lot on the makeup of your office or the location where you plan to store and use your office cabinet.
The two main types are:
- Vertical office cabinets. Similar to a wardrobe, these work as large vertical shelves. Some have drawers, others only have shelves with optional accessories such as a vertical filing system. In most cases, at least a pair of vertical doors will need to be opened to keep all office supplies out of sight as much as 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 space and are relying on using your vertical space instead, you should probably consider a vertical office cabinet. However, if you have a lot of space to work, a sideboard is a good choice. With a sideboard, you will likely need to plan to access memory from a seated position. So positioning it near a desk or in a natural place where you might have a chair is probably the easiest to use. Then you have vertical space to hang shelves, artwork, or other visual work.
