At Autonomous, you will find a wide variety of desks with storage cabinets to choose from. Any one of these would be great additions to your home office. With ample storage, you can avoid working in a cluttered office because all your accessories and paperwork will have a place where they can be stored away.
If you are wondering what a cabinet desk is and why you would need one, read on and find the answers to all your questions.
What Is a Cabinet Desk?
A cabinet desk is simply a home office desk that has a lot of extra storage in the form of drawers, shelves, and cabinets. This extra storage space often means an office desk with cabinets is chunkier and heavier than a regular desk.
Sometimes, a desk with file cabinet compartments is combined with some form of overhead storage unit, in which case the whole thing will be called a desk plus hutch. A cabinet desk is a great option when you have plenty of paperwork and accessories and want to avoid office clutter.
What Are the Common Types of Desk Cabinets?
There are many different designs of cabinet desks. Some come with added features, such as when having a computer desk with keyboard tray additions. The type of desk with storage cabinet additions is often defined according to the features it has, such as:
- Desk and hutch – it comes with overhead storage
- Executive desk – usually has a couple of cabinets and is often L-shaped
- Hallway desk – can be long with shelf compartments to display books
- Pedestal desk – has shelves and drawers that act as the desk’s legs
- Corner desk – designed to be fitted in one of the corners of the office
- Standing cabinet desk – comes with a lift mechanism to adjust the height of the desk
Where Is the Best Place for a Cabinet Desk?
The best place to set up your cabinet desk largely depends on the type of office you have, and the kind of desk setup you are going for. There are a lot of things to consider, so what might be best for one office, may not be the case for another.
It is important to carefully consider the layout of the office before you decide which of the following places would be best for your cabinet desk:
Middle of the Room
This is by far the most common place you are likely to find a desk in a modern office setting. Placing your desk in the center of the room has many advantages, such as allowing you to sit within easy reach of everything you need. It also helps to make your desk the centerpiece of the room, which is great if you happen to have a great-looking desk.
In the Corner
If you have a relatively small office, you cannot afford to place your desk in the center, otherwise, it will take up all the space. It would be better to buy a corner standing desk and place it in one of the corners where it will be out of the way and give you space to move around.
Along the Wall
Some offices are a bit long and narrow, in which case, the best place for your desk would be along the wall. There are long desks available that are designed for that very purpose.
By the Window
If you are lucky enough to have a well-lit office that has a great view outside, why not make the best of it by placing your desk beneath the window? With the right desk, such as a glass-topped cabinet desk, you can maximize the effect of the natural light and give your office a great look.
By the Power Supply
You can reduce the stress of trying to come up with a good way to handle cable management for desk accessories by placing your desk as close to the power supply as possible. This way, you will not have cables crossing the office floor and causing a tripping hazard.
