The Basic Knowledge About Office Storage

When choosing a cabinet, understanding the basics is critical to ensuring that you get the product that best suits your needs. Here’s a look at the materials, durability, desktop size, height, and extensions to help customers make the right choice


The material of the cabinet directly affects its appearance, texture, and service life. Common materials include:

Composite materials: such as MFC(Melamine-Faced Chipboard/Particle board), MDF(medium-density fiberboard), and Plywood, with decorative surfaces, can simulate a variety of material appearance, the cost is relatively low.

Glass: creates a light and transparent feeling, is easy to clean, suitable for modern design style.

MFC(Melamine-Faced Chipboard/Particle board)

It is made of wood chips from fast-growing trees like Eucalyptus, acacia, and rubber… formed into particleboard and bonded to melamine resin-impregnated paper. The melamine layer helps to waterproof, resist scratches, and increase the aesthetics of the surface. MFC has a variety of colors, is lightweight, and easy to construct, but it is not seamless, is limited in thickness, and has low resistance to water. MFC is suitable for home and office furniture in dry areas such as wardrobes, nightstands, desks…

MDF(medium-density fiberboard)

Made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers, combining it with additives (wax and a resin binder), and forming it into panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF has a higher-density board than MFC and has a smooth surface that is ideal for painting, gluing, and screwing. There are 2 processes: wet-process and dry-process to produce different types of MDF. The ultra-light MDF board is often used for indoor furniture such as filing cabinets, wardrobes, and beds... Green MDF is moisture-resistant, and is often used in humid places such as kitchen cabinets, and bathroom cabinets…. Red MDF wood is fire retardant, so it is often used for furniture in offices or apartments.


Plywood is a panel-shaped wood-based material made from several thin layers of wood (the plies or wood veneers) that are glued crosswise along the grain. Plywood is produced in different qualities due to different uses and the number of veneer layers. Plywood has better water resistance than MDF, MFC. Plywood is used in many areas as a building material, for example, both indoors and outdoors. Plywood is also used for furniture sets, cabinets, and tables. In general, it can be said that due to its high strength values, plywood is used wherever high stability is required.

The Common Pitfalls When Purchasing

When purchasing office filing cabinets, customers may encounter some common pitfalls that may lead them to purchase a product that is not suitable for their needs or make a suboptimal choice in terms of value for money. Understanding these pitfalls can help avoid unnecessary expense and inconvenience. Here are some common pitfalls you may encounter when purchasing filing cabinets:

Purchasing a file cabinet that is too large or too small and failing to properly assess the dimensions of the space where the file cabinet will be placed may result in the file cabinet not fitting appropriately into the office space or failing to meet actual storage needs. Properly measuring the area where the filing cabinet is intended to be placed, and taking into account the additional space required when the filing cabinet door or drawer is open, is key to avoiding problems like this.
Choose filing cabinets with insufficient carrying capacity to store important documents or information. Especially when a filing cabinet is used to store large amounts of paper documents, its weight may far exceed its normal load. When purchasing a filing cabinet, you should confirm its load-bearing capacity to ensure that its structure and materials can withstand the expected weight to avoid damage or collapse due to overload.
Choosing cheaper materials may reduce the initial investment, but in the long run it may increase costs due to frequent replacements due to poor durability of the materials. For example, some low-cost plastic or thin metal filing cabinets may not be able to withstand the stress of prolonged use. Choosing durable materials, such as thick wood or steel, can be more cost-effective even though the initial cost is higher.
In situations where you need to protect sensitive or confidential documents, look for filing cabinets that do not have a proper locking mechanism. Making sure your filing cabinets have adequate security measures, such as locking drawers and hard-to-break structures, can prevent the leakage of sensitive information.
File cabinets are purchased without considering long-term storage needs and possible space adjustments. Choosing a filing cabinet system that can be expanded or modular will provide greater flexibility to adapt to possible changes in needs in the future, thus avoiding the additional cost of future reinvestment.

The price of the cabinet varies with the size of the cabinet, and the larger the size, the higher the price; the client is overly demanding on the size of the cabinet, for example requiring a 450mm or 500mm depth, while the actual use of a 400mm depth is fine, but 450/500mm is much more expensive than 400mm because it wastes more board material

By avoiding these common pitfalls, you can ensure you purchase the right filing cabinet for your needs, not only for your current storage needs, but also for future sustainability and cost-effectiveness. This careful selection approach will help you achieve a higher return on investment and user satisfaction.
