When shopping for office furniture, it is important to note the different storage options available for each desk. Ask yourself the following questions: how many and what type of storage drawers do I need? Fortunately, there are plenty of options for you choose from to keep your workspace organized and clutter free.
Convertible Center Drawers
Center drawers are a convenient place to store small office accessories such as pens, pencils and scissors. Many center drawers are convertible, meaning that they easily become a keyboard tray. The drawer front simply folds down so you can rest your wrists flat while you type.
Many collections feature drawer pedestals that attach to the main desk, the desk return or the credenza, depending on the configuration of the desk. Typically, these pedestals come in two drawer or three drawer styles.
Two Drawer Pedestals
Most two drawer pedestals include top and bottom file drawers that will accommodate both letter and legal size files. Many file drawers slide effortlessly on full extension ball-bearing glides, giving you easy access to all your documents.
Three Drawer Pedestals
Three drawer pedestals include two box drawers stacked above one file drawer. Box drawers are ideal for storing office accessories so you can maximize your workspace while eliminating desktop clutter. Some box drawers roll on standard metal drawer glides while others feature full extension ball-bearing glides.
If a desk doesn’t have any drawers, mobile file pedestals, lateral file cabinets and vertical file cabinets can be paired with the desk for more storage space.
