  1. Filing Cabinets 

Whilst filing cabinets are available from large retailers such as IKEA, Argos and Amazon this is just part of a huge offering and may not have the specialist knowledge or experience of an online office furniture company. Filing or filer cabinets are used for storage suspension files in either foolscap or A4 format, usually front to back for ease of access.

 However check the sizes and quality as not all products are foolscap size which is common in the UK and not all cabinets are available in the colours we offer such as white, black, grey, white, purple, red, orange, yellow, green, pastel turquoise, violet, brown, chlorphyl, to mention a few. AT Thats My office you get to configure your cabinet and drawer colours in 360 degree and  you're sure to find one that fits your style and budget. 

  1. Filing Cabinets: Wood vs. Metal

Wooden filing cabinets are a popular choice for home offices, as they blend seamlessly with most home décor. They are available in various finishes such as maple, grey oak, walnut, beech, white, black or grey. Metal filing cabinets, on the other hand, are more commonly used in professional office settings due to their durability and sleek appearance. They often come in 2-drawer 3 or 4-drawer options in a variety of colours. The unique thing about That's My Office is that cabinets can be viewed in Augmented Reality and customisable with mixed drawer and cabinet colours along with different lock options.


  1. Lockable Filing Cabinets

If you need to store sensitive documents or personal information, lockable filing cabinets are a must-have. Most models come with built-in locks supplied with two keys. Make sure to keep track of the keys provided, or consider opting for a cabinet with a combination lock for added security. At Thats My Office we have added security options for exam papers which are supplied with a security bar which requires a padlock or on side filers you can have individual locking drawers for your files

  1. Fireproof Filing Cabinets
