Life In The Office: 5 Storage Products You've Got To Have

If your workspace is cluttered and unorganized you can't operate a peak performance levels! That being said, in today's post we'll highlight the storage products you'll need to maintain a well organized space designed for optimal effectiveness. From wall cabinets to desk top organizers, the storage products highlighted here are must haves for any professional workspace.

1.) Wall Cabinet

Wall Cabinet

Placing a wall cabinet on the perimeter of your office will enhance appeal and improve organizing potential. Popular wall cabinets are available to match most casegoods furniture collections from brands like Global Total Office, Mayline, Cherryman Industries, and Offices To Go. In addition to interior storage space, the surface of your new wall cabinet can be used to showcase important literature and materials provided to office visitors throughout the workday.

2.) Hutch

Limited on floor space? Get an overhead hutch unit! These smart office storage solutions can mount directly to office walls or be used on top of credenzas. U shaped office desks commonly include overhead hutch units, but if your current space is without there's no need to fret. Top brands offer hutches that are sold individually to help you maximize  your storage needs. The modern hutch cabinets available in 2015 typically feature shelves and glass doors that will make your workspace pop while simultaneously helping you to stay more organized.

3.) Pedestal

Desk Pedestal

Desk pedestals are a must for any professional workspace. These handy little units keep important documents close when you need them. Mobile pedestals are the preferred option as they can be rolled underneath desk and credenza surfaces when not in use, then easily slid out when contents are required. The two main pedestal styles available are box box file and file file. We recommend one of each. While suspended pedestals are also available that mount underneath work surfaces, they offer limited storage space and are a bit of a pain to install. Go with a full sized mobile pedestal for your office. You'll be glad you did! In addition, many top brands offer desk storage pedestals with padded tops to provide an extra seat when needed. Now that's versatility!

4.) File Cabinet

File Cabinet

File cabinets are the lifeblood of the business world. Used to keep important documents well organized and secure, a good file cabinet is hard to beat. As the most popular storage solution available on the market, a quality file cabinet from Global Total Office, Mayline, or Cherryman Industries, will look great for years and keep your space properly organized. Vertical file cabinets were once the preferred choice, but in recent years lateral file cabinets have taken over. Lateral file cabinets are easier to organize and provide more storage space. As a side tip, be sure to go through your file cabinet regularly to ensure it's properly organized. Take the time to purge out old records and unnecessary documents to maximize your storage space. All too often business professionals feel limited on storage space, only to find they've been securely housing old files from ten years ago.

5.) Desk Organizer

Desk Organizer

A good desk organizer is worth it's weight in gold. With the ability to house mail, a few important documents, and stationary tools, a desk organizer will help you stay on task and ahead of the game. In the long run, a well organized work surface will set you up for success. Don't let pens, notes, and paper clips dominate your desk top! They'll kill productivity and create stress. Use a desk top organizer in 2015. You'll be glad you did!
