Office wall cupboards can be free-standing, fixed along an open wall, or mounted to an office wall. These cupboards come in various designs, widths and lengths, depending on your preference and available space. They can help to keep the office organised and neat by providing ideal storage for files, documents, devices and other office accessories. Choosing the right cupboards should make it easy for your employees to sort, store and access everything they need to get on with their jobs. The following considerations can help:
1. Your budget
Having a budget before you start looking for office wall cupboards enables you to narrow down your options. If you’re looking for a budget solution, then versatile Multi-Drawer Office Storage may meet your needs, whereas if you’re looking for something more integrated, then solutions like the Use Me Office Storage makes a stylish addition.
2. Your office requirements
Of course, your choice of cupboards for your office will largely be dependent on what you need to store. If you simply need to store documents, then file storage units are purpose-built to do just this, but if you want to make your space more functional with specific and secure areas for a range of paperwork, items and devices, you may benefit from smart furniture designs that integrate with existing desk and wall space to provide extra shelving, compartments and lockable storage.
Durability is an essential consideration that influences the type and design of cupboard you will purchase. From wood to steel and even plastic, the material used determines the durability of your office furniture. Owing to its strength, many people prefer steel for cupboards used to store important documents such as financial information, customer data and title deeds. Wood, on the other hand, is used for general everyday storage owing to its medium strength.
If your paperwork is confidential, avoid opting for cupboards without locks or those with an open front/sides or designed in a transparent material. Another consideration is cupboards that prevent dust, water, and fire from destroying your stored documents. Lockable metal filing cupboards are a great solution for storing confidential documents like financial documents, HR files, and health records.
5. Design and adaptability
Are you looking for a functional cupboard or one that aligns with your office’s decor? That’s not all you need to consider. It’s time to get the tape measure out and work out the dimensions of your space in terms of height and footprint, as well as any access areas you might need to move your assembled cupboards through from time to time. If you have lots of documents and items of different sizes, such as large and bulky files, then your cupboard should have the space to accommodate them all. By the same token, if your office is small, look for cupboards that utilise space efficiently with a range of partitions so you can relocate some bulky items to them such as your printer, fax, tea and coffee facilities or even personal belongings.
