Because working from home has become an increasingly common part of contemporary life, the modern credenza or file cabinet has become an essential piece of furniture in the modern home. Much as we welcome the convenience of the digital age, important papers and documents which need to be kept safe and can be easily retrieved remains a relevant consideration. The good news is that the days of commercial and utilitarian file storage are long gone, replaced by a range of stylish modern file cabinets that can sometimes segue seamlessly from workspace to guest room or even dining room with ease.

What kind of modern file cabinet is best?

File cabinets come in two basic profiles—vertical and horizontal—and which kind of modern file storage makes most sense for you depends on how large your space is, and how much storage capacity you need. If floor space is at a premium, vertical storage will be the optimal choice, occupying a small footprint while still providing you with ample storage for papers and correspondence. More compact home office storage can be acquired by selecting a small filing cabinet that fits under a desk, for instance, making the most of a small space while adding to already existing desk storage. If space is not a major consideration, horizontal modern file cabinets may be well suited to your needs, and offer a bit more functional (and esthetic) versatility. Horizontal storage has the advantage of providing a large surface area for books, magazines, and other media, giving it a dual storage purpose. Depending on your budget, you may even want to consider purchasing a classic modern credenza.

Why should I buy a modern credenza?

Credenzas are incredibly versatile furniture pieces, bearing elegant profiles that may disguise their office storage capabilities under more generic detailing that makes them well suited to other rooms in the home—including dining room or bedroom. Low profile, by definition, and typically elegant, the modern credenza is a staple of mid century modern interiors, designed for ample storage without detracting from a room’s overall design scheme, and contributing to the airy openness so coveted by design enthusiasts. A credenza with modern file storage components can be immensely useful, holding a huge amount of material without appearing bulky or commercial.

Can a modern file cabinet be used in any room?

Without a doubt, versatility is a key to an enduring modern file cabinet design, and with the number of smart options available today, there’s no reason to settle for a design that looks obviously like a standard filing cabinet, strictly for office use. Look for modern file cabinets with elegant detailing that makes them stylish enough to be used as bedside storage, for instance. A mid-sized modern credenza can easily do duty as media cabinet in the home theatre, or be converted to a modern bar cabinet. Whether buying for office, bedroom, or dining room, the key to quality furniture as long-term investment is to think beyond your immediate needs, and to buy with the future as well as present in mind.
