Which Storage Cabinet Should My Workplace Get?

The correct storage cabinet can be a game-changer in a workplace. Everything messy and disorganised? Nightmare. People do not feel so ready to start their jobs and morale can be lower. Everything in its place in a practical way which is compact and easy to access? Now that’s what we love to hear!

As Fairwayrock is a marketplace for industry, we find a lot of people asking about storage solutions for their workplaces, whether this is for office or workshop use. Therefore, we have written this guide to advise you which storage cabinet you need for your workplace.

When choosing the right size of storage cabinet for your workplace, it will largely depend on the space available, the reason for storage, and the number of people on your team.

What is a Storage Cabinet?

Storage cabinets will usually range from 16 inch (40cm) to 24 inch (70cm) in depth. They provide a hidden or secure way to store items. Often these are items which you do not need every day, but are easily accessible. A storage cabinet will work in almost any workplace space, such as offices, kitchens or cupboards. What we love about them is that the space stays need as they will have operable doors to conceal the inside if so desired. They can also usually be locked if you are using your cabinet for storing confidential files.

How Do I Organise My Storage Cabinet?

The biggest downfall with a storage cabinet is that they can be difficult to organise. We recommend using a colour coded filing system if you are using it to store items such as documents and files with a magazine file or different coloured sections. Alternatively, you could group similar items together in different coloured baskets or trays. For example, if you are using it to store cleaning products. This Bosch L Boxx Storage System – Basket / Tote Tray is perfect for storing some tools or hardware. Both of these techniques will keep your storage cabinet neat and tidy, so long as people stick to the method.

We love this one because it is so portable when tools are required for different jobs. Just remember to pop the brakes on!

This Cabinet is excellent if you need some extra worktop space. We recommend it particularly if you are short for space, as it has both drawers and cuboards for storing a mixture of items. This cabinet can also be used in both outdoor spaces or industrial work spaces making it a very versitile option.
