Lateral filing cabinet features much wider drawers than vertical filing cabinets, and you don’t have to pull them out as far to get to your documents. However, the unit itself does take up a fair amount of space. It is great for a hallway or other highly trafficked area and can fit adjacent to or under a large table or desk top, too. Lateral filing cabinets work well for legal or letter-sized paperwork (as always, check the specifications of the unit you are interested in buying for your document and filing needs).
Each type of material has its pros and cons. Metal, for example, is extremely sturdy and holds up to a considerable degree of abuse; however, metal file cabinets are far heavier than their counterparts, making home office rearrangements a chore. Wood and wicker will blend in naturally with your other home office furniture but are more susceptible to damage, especially fire.
Metal filing cabinets also come with two additional features that you will not find anywhere else: a locking mechanism and fireproof capabilities. If home security is a top priority for your documents, look into a metal cabinet that includes a lock. However, this key is your sole access pass to your documents, so don’t lose that key! A fireproof cabinet comes with a higher price tag but ensures the safety of your papers in the event of a fire.
