Lateral file cabinets are often chosen because of their easier accessibility over that of vertical file cabinets, and sometimes because the "footprint" of a lateral file cabinet works better than that of a regular vertical cabinet. Rather than the files going front to back, with lateral file cabinets, the files go from side to side. One advantage to the shape of lateral file cabinets is that they blend in better with other office furniture. They also give a certain amount of space on top that people can use to store books or supplies, or to add a functional hutch to add more non-file storage. Wood lateral file cabinets are well liked for their less institutional look when compared to standard metal file cabinets. Other disadvantages to metal file cabinets are their sharp edges, and their tendency to tip forward if too many drawers are open at once.
Placement of a Computer and Phone Most modern reception desk furniture is designed to be used with a computer and keyboard. When you are choosing which type of desk to use in the reception area, it is best to find one that allows the computer to be placed in the corner of the desk instead of in the center. The receptionist will divide his or her time between talking with customers over the middle of the desk and working with the computer. It is more inviting if the middle of the desk is clear so that conversations can be had comfortably. The phone should be placed beside the receptionist instead of over the center of the desk, as well Decorative Elements Reception desk furniture is practical, but it also needs to be somewhat personal. The furniture in the reception area needs to be lightly decorated so that it seems more inviting and less cold. Nice reception desk decorations can include small flower arrangements or photos that deal with the type of business that the firm does.
