Why storage is the unsung hero of office furniture

March 6, 2015

All offices need effective storage. Without it, paperwork, supplies and equipment can quickly mount up and before you know it, your workplace has descended into chaos. No matter what type of work is being carried out, having the right storage in place can help you to sort and organise your day-to-day essentials and, in turn, help to boost productivity and efficiency. Here’s our pick of our top storage savoirs and how they can transform the office environment.
 
Filers
 
These pieces of furniture have become something of a staple in the modern day office, and there’s good reason for it too. Used for storing paperwork and archiving, filing systems have been designed with the sole purpose of making filing and finding documents fast and simple.
 
With extendable drawers, you can easily flick through your files without having to spend time rummaging around. Most filing cabinets also come with labelling systems, allowing you to organise information into appropriate sections and stay on track. They also often come with lockable sections, ideal for storing confidential files.
 
Shelving systems
 
Often overlooked, shelves are another simple and easy storage solution. Especially useful for cramped spaces, shelving can transform empty wall space into the perfect home for storing small office items, files and books. They also offer a great place for displaying decorative objects like plants.
 
You can now get flexible shelving units with adjustable heights, allowing you to arrange the shelves in a way that suits your changing needs. Whether you’re looking for a complete wall bookcase or an individual shelf, these nifty fittings can help you store your office supplies in a quick and efficient manner.
 
Drawer units
 
Drawers that can slide under desks offer a highly convenient storage option for frequently-used items. Helping you to keep stationery and other grab-and-go items close at hand, under-desk drawers help to free up valuable desk space and keep the clutter at bay. Most drawers also come with optional tray inserts to store all of your knickknacks in an orderly fashion.
 
Noticeboards
 
Pinning up important papers, reminders and important mail on a wall-mounted organiser can help you to keep on top of your work. Not only will this help to free up desk space, it can also be used as a visual cue to remind you of what your tasks for the day are. However, it’s important to remember to get rid of old papers on a regular basis to stop your noticeboard from becoming too cluttered.
