Office Storage Buying Guide

At ORS, we believe having enough storage is an essential part to keeping your office organised and tidy. But with a full range of products to choose from, it can sometimes be tricky to make the right choice. This office storage buying guide will help ensure you have all the information you need before deciding what to buy.

So, what different types of office storage solutions are available?


Filing Cabinets

Filing cabinets are great for keeping your paperwork and documents safe, allowing you to sort all your files together for improved document management. For this reason, they are hugely popular in offices and as such, are available in a range of different sizes and colours.

There are several factors worth considering when choosing the right filing cabinet for your office space. Do you need a tall or narrow design? What paper size are you planning to store? Most of our cabinets are capable of holding A4 and Foolscap hanging files, with a number of drawers to choose from.

Do you require additional security for private documents? Keep these safe and secure with lockable filing cabinets.

We also stock white filing cabinets for a modern and fresh look – perfect for brightening up a small office space.

Office Pedestals

Our office pedestals are a practical and durable storage solution. They are designed to fit comfortably underneath desks to provide useful storage space – usually available in either 2 or 3 drawer options to store various items and office supplies. Many of our units feature lockable drawers, which are great for securing personal items while at work.

Choose from a range of wooden or metal pedestals, which can either be fixed in position or on wheels. Having a movable pedestal is very convenient if you often rearrange the office!

Also take into consideration the depth you’re working with when selecting a pedestal. Ideally, you’ll want to find a unit that matches your desks depth and height so it fits perfectly underneath without any problems.

Every office needs somewhere to store things and our cupboards provide the ideal storage solution for busy working environments. Standard double door cupboards allow a huge range of items to be stored away. For something a little different, we also offer the following:

Combination cupboards: These allow you to configure your own storage. Mix cupboards, drawers and shelving to optimise your storage space.

Metal / Steel cupboards: These are extremely durable and are suited to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.

Tambour Cupboards: An elegant way to add style to your storage, featuring doors that slide into the sides of the cupboard, rather than a traditional unit which would open outwards. These offer the same amount of storage space but require less room when being used – making them ideal for offices that have limited floor space.


How much wall space have you got available in your office? A blank wall provides a great opportunity for you to install a high quality bookcase. These are great open storage options for offices that wish to keep their essentials visible and easily accessible to people throughout the working day. They’re great at making the most of your vertical space, with a range of shelving options to choose from to suit your needs.

Does your office need space to store books, office literature and media? Or would you simply like to showcase your company awards and photographs? Whichever it is, these are perfect for keeping everything organised in one place.
