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.
If the desk is too ostentatious, however, it will make your company seem less approachable. The office furniture you choose for your reception desk needs to be the most inviting piece of furniture in your office suite. Practical Considerations The purpose of reception desk furniture is to provide the receptionist with a place to perform his or her duties in a practical manner. It is also a place for customers or clients to ask for information or announce that they have arrived to meet with people who work in the offices. The desk needs to be able to accommodate all of the office supplies that a receptionist will need in order to fulfill his or her tasks without being too cluttered. A professional receptionist desk should have a panel that covers the front of the desk so that people who walk by can not see through to the receptionist’s legs. It also provides a handy place for storing items that are not in use.
It not only will cozy up the space and make it a far more inviting place in which to work, but if it’s a sofabed, your home office can double as a guest room. Place a lamp on a filing cabinet by the couch and it will act as a lamp table by day and as a bedside table whenever guests stay over. Portable, expandable filing systems are just as functional as those in more substantial filing cabinets, but their real advantage is that they can be stashed out of sight. Old suitcases like these could hold all of your important papers in fabulous eclectic style. Old cabinets and chests of drawers are other handy places for stashing cardboard or plastic expandable filing systems. Once you consider the alternatives, a traditional metal filing cabinet is unlikely ever to enter your home office again. Nothing adds more warmth and charm to a room than a relic from the past, and when it’s in natural wood form, the effect is multiplied. Look for industrial-style or antique filing options in secondhand stores or get the look with a reproduction. This one packs in a lot of filing space and adds charm to this otherwise simple home office.
Sometimes less is more. The Walter is flat surface top with a drawer on each side. The rolled and hexagon steel legs gives the desk a feeling of floating in the air. The top and drawers are made from reclaimed oak wood making this one of the most environmentalist desks around. A little bit of the right music can stimulate and improve concentration and production. Or so I have heard. But do you really need an excuse to have a desk with built in speakers? Behind cabinet doors are two 4inch high efficiency full range drivers with titanium cones and paired with a 1/4inch subwoofer. The speakers can be used with wireless streaming for a wire free work surface. The Laura desk is writing desk that is simple yet functional and modern. The three cubbies at the back end hides two ports back in the shadow. There are two angled drawers for simple storage solutions for small items like pens, paperclips, smartphones and notebooks. The Locus Sphere workstation is another standing desk.
