File cabinets are an often underappreciated, yet crucial part of almost every office.

File Cabinets for Every Office

Most offices need storage of some sort. Whether it’s papers, office supplies, products, or more, file cabinets serve to store a range of items you don’t want cluttering up your workspace.

Liquidators’ World sells a variety of used filing cabinet sizes—from small cabinets that slide under your desk to large filing cabinets that can hold thousands of sheets of paper.

Types of File Cabinets


Letter size is the standard size of printer paper: 8 ½ x 11 inches. This is the most common size of filing cabinet and a great option for many types of office setups.


Legal size is the same width as letter size, but longer: 8 ½ x 14 inches. Some companies need to file legal-size documents, while others do not. Consider whether or not legal-size paperwork will be part of your regular business paperwork.


Vertical file cabinets stand upright and usually consist of at least four drawers. These common cabinets are great for smaller office spaces and accommodate letter-size documents. The standard size is usually 15 inches.


Lateral filing cabinets, on the other hand, are designed to sit horizontally and can house both letter and legal-size paperwork. These can be a variety of sizes.


If you’re designing a mobile office space or have employees who need to collaborate frequently, it makes sense to seek out filing cabinets with swivel wheels. These can be easily moved between desks and offices.


Filing cabinets with locks are a must if your documents need privacy. Locking cabinets are also great for employees to store their personal items such as wallets, phones, and purses.

File Cabinet Materials and Designs


Filing cabinets made of galvanized steel are standard in a lot of offices. These cabinets are built to be durable and some are even fire-resistant and/or waterproof. They are usually featured in modern and industrial office designs.


Wood file cabinets can be made of real wood such as oak or cherry, or a wood composite known as medium-density fibreboard (MDF). MDF cabinets can mimic the look of real wood or finishes. Dark brown, gray, white, or black are all popular MDF cabinet colors. Wood cabinets complement a variety of workspace designs including mission, farmhouse, and traditional.
