When you don't have a lot of room to work with, it can be really difficult to manage file storage because of lack of floor space for office filing systems. However, just because you have a smaller office than most, it does not mean you can get by without some form of storage for those traditional paper files. Thankfully, there are specifically designed filing systems that are catered to the office space that is smaller in stature. But how do you know which ones will work out the best? Here is a look at some of the features to look for in an office filing system for a smaller workspace.
1. The filing system has doors instead of drawers.
Traditionally, filing cabinets are fairly deep in their design to house deep rows of file folders. However, if you don't have a lot of room to work with, it can be difficult to have enough room for the drawers to be pulled open fully from their holding cabinet. For this reason, it is best to stick with filing systems that have sliding doors or even doors that swing open. Some filing systems created for smaller spaces will have no doors at all; they will instead have an open-access design that the files simply slide into like on a bookshelf.
2. The filing system is tall so you take advantage of vertical space.
There is no reason all that extra vertical space should go to waste in your small work area. Therefore, the best filing system will give you plenty of use of vertical space, which means the filing system may be a lot taller than what you would normally use. Even if you have to keep a small stepping stool near your filing system to retrieve files from the upper levels, it is well worth the extra storage space.
3. The filing system is adjustable so it caters to your workspace.
Smaller workspaces are less likely to have a large span of walls where office filing systems can be situated. It is more likely that you will have a little space here and a little space there to work with instead of a wide open area. If this is the case, you need a filing system that can be arranged in smaller sections, broken down, stacked, or otherwise maneuvered so that you can easily make it fit into the space you have to work with.Share

When I started paying more and more attention to my home, I realized that there were some serious issues with my furniture. It was worn and unsightly, and I knew that I had to replace things--and then learn how to take care of it. It was a little bit intimidating at first, but the more I practiced, the more I realized that I could handle the job. Before I knew it, I had replaced my couches and purchased the right cleaning supplies, and it was really making a difference. Check out this blog for more information about taking care of furniture.
