Eisenhauer 2 Drawer Filing Cabinet
- Buy now from Wayfair (£99.99)
Featuring quality particleboard and a sleek steel frame, this stylish filing cabinet will look right at home in an industrial-style décor scheme, add an interesting edge to a country cottage, or bring an accent of natural warmth to a minimalist home office.
With black metal sides and four 360° swivel wheels, 2 of which have brakes to keep it in place, it’s also incredibly practical – not only can you move it around your home office with complete ease, but you can quickly add sticky labels and memos to the unit without having to reach for a notebook.
The drawers inside are fully extendable, and the perfect dimensions to store letters or even books. It’s a great height for slotting under a desk, but we’d style it next to our desk with a cool houseplant on top.
White Habitat Filing Cabinet
- Buy now from Argos (£65.00)
Sometimes simple is best, and if you’re looking for a filing cabinet that won’t overwhelm your space or décor scheme, this Pepper pedestal cabinet from Habitat, via Argos, is perfectly understated.
Although this sleek storage cabinet it has a wood effect finish, it’s actually made from melamine, which makes it super hardwearing, scratch and flame resistant. It features two drawers that are easy close and non-locking, so you can grab whatever paperwork you need with ease, as well as a roomy cupboard, where you can keep all your stationary and supplied neatly organised in baskets.
Zane tall filing cabinet
- Buy now from Furniture Village (£669.00)
There are so many great things about this Furniture Village cabinet. Firstly, it’s super tall with a mix of open shelves and push-open cupboards, meaning that you can easily display the things that you want out to give your space a personalised look, but tidy away the things that you don’t. It’s made of melamine, so it’s extremely strong, scratch and stain-resistant, and it can be assembled in reverse, so you can fully personalise it to suit your space and make it appear bespoke.
The white and warm Navarra oak finish means that this cabinet will look good in almost any existing décor scheme, but we think it looks best in a pared-back Scandi space with light walls, warm wooden finishes and fresh green houseplants. If this particular cabinet is too tall for your space, it also comes in a 120cm version, and there’s even a matching corner desk if you want the whole set.
