Some metal file cabinets have stops that prevent more than two file drawers being open at one time. Wood lateral file cabinets are easier to incorporate into an office decorating scheme because they come in colors that match other office furniture. Wood lateral file cabinets are typically made from medium density, laminated fiberboard and usually have ball-bearing slides for smooth drawer opening and closing. They are generally made to hold either business size files or legal size files. They come in styles that resemble low profile dressers, with decorative pulls, and they also come in sleeker styles with "half moon" shaped indents built in instead of pulls or handles. Wood finishes of every kind are available, including paint finishes. Lateral file cabinets - particularly those made from wood - are very popular in home offices, particularly when the home office doubles as a bedroom, dining room, or family room. They look much more "homey" than standard metal vertical file cabinets, and are much easier to incorporate into any decor scheme. Less expensive models require assembly, but usually the only tool needed is a screwdriver. More expensive models will be pre-assembled.
Accessibility to Clients and Employees Unlike some kinds of office furniture, reception desk furniture should be open and allow visitors to easily interact with the receptionist. The desk needs to be big enough so that items can be worked on without taking over the entire desk area. The ideal reception desk furniture would have an extra wide surface so that the receptionist can work on one half of the desk while visitors comfortably write notes or other communications on the other half of the desk. A wide desk also provides some privacy for the receptionist if he or she is working on something that is of a more confidential nature.
Lateral file cabinets on wheels are also available, and their shape is more stable for rolling than vertical file cabinets on wheels. About the only "disadvantage" of wood lateral file cabinets is that they resemble nice furniture and cant always take the manhandling that metal file cabinets regularly take. Most people dont expect for a metal file cabinet to be attractive. With some models of wood lateral file cabinets, the laminate is easy to scratch or mar. This is primarily a problem with lower priced file cabinets. But overall, people like lateral file cabinets, whether wood or metal, for their easier access and space maximizing properties. Without having to pull the drawers out as far as with vertical filing cabinets, access is easier, and tipping forward is less of a threat.
