Lateral File Cabinets for Office Organization

October 12th, 2022
~ 3 minute read
Adam StacksBy Adam Stacks

Office organization is extremely important to an office worker. An unorganized workspace is an office that is not efficient; not only that but most times this situation can lead to a less than professional appearance for the business. To keep a professional appearance, the office must be free of clutter while with everything in its place. As I say often to my children- a place for everything, everything in its place (thank you Ben Franklin.} That means that every office needs both trash bins and adequate storage. Today, I would like to focus on one form of storage to help organize an office- Lateral file cabinets.

Lateral file cabinets are a newer take on the traditional file cabinet. Whereas the traditional file cabinet stands upright with between two and six drawers on top of one another, lateral storage cabinets take the file storage idea and turns it on its side. They have risen in popularity in the last few years which has emboldened manufacturers to get creative with their design. Below we will look at some of the more unique designs that help keep an office organized. First, let’s look at standard lateral file cabinet for reference.
