Home Office Design Ideas Using Wood File Cabinets

Look around your office right now and ask yourself the question, “Is my office cold and forbidding or warm and inviting?” Chances are, if your office feels cold or just a little impersonal, it’s due to the fact that your furnishings, like your desk or file cabinets, are made of hard, institutional materials like metal, rather than warm, homey feeling materials like wood. Trust me when I tell you, wood file cabinets, computer desks, and other office furnishings can improve the atmosphere and mood of your home office like almost nothing else can.

It doesn’t matter what type of wood, whether it’s oak, cherry, mahogany, or teak, as long as it matches the rest of your decor, and as long as you find it pleasant, go for it! It also doesn’t make any difference whether you choose lateral wooden file cabinets or the more standard long drawer type. Each are available in warm wood stains and colors you will find eye pleasing. Examples abound of furniture for the home based business that combines the best finishes and materials with the functional format that fits the way you work and live.

There are many brand names you could choose, of course, with Hon being the best known and most widely available, but certainly not the only choice. Your best bet is to obtain some color samples from local office supply stores or office furniture distributors, and bring them home to see how the different woods will look in your office space. Don’t forget to carefully measure before you buy any piece, because you want to make sure the new furniture will fit, including the space needed for the drawers and cabinets to fully open.

Why not warm up your home office space with wood file cabinets and computer desks?
