Cabinets represent the epitome of security and proper organization. May it be for the home or the office, you can always find room and space that would represent your personality. Let's start with the ones you use at home. We use cabinets to keep out unnecessary clutter and to maximize the floor area. So it wouldn't be recommendable to select and buy cabinets that would make a mess of your home décor. Cabinets can sometimes be the centerpiece of a home, if chosen wisely. If you're not sure, you can always ask an interior designer.
Now, the whole selection thing gets more complicated when you're furnishing your office, the place where you do business and earn money. It gets more complicated especially when you hold a managerial position, because your office serves as a representation of your character in terms of leadership, management and organization. And depending on your company, it would also be the place where you will receive and entertain clients. Your office must also represent a certain level of power in order gain respect whether you're dealing with a local or an international organization.
Remember wood and steel always come hand in hand together. Steel or metal represents progress and development, while wood shows a stature of power and respect. Black and slick mahogany or teak are the usual combination. So if you notice, the desks of the top brass are usually made of mahogany, coated in a slightly red varnish, while the conference or meeting tables are usually metal and the seat cushions are usually black.
This combination is usually employed by giant companies to give their clients a sense of security, leadership and stability for employees and also finally as an edge for intimidation for lesser competition. But as the Arabian saying goes; "inflict not every wound on your enemy, for someday he may be your friend" So some companies prefer the softball approach, and that could work for you. Basically all you have to do is cover your office literally in transparency, meaning glass. From desks to oversized windows, glass represents the flexibility and the vision of the organization, and it also encourages trust from your clients.
Such glass cabinets offer the feeling that the deal goes both ways, and a win-win situation is a possible outcome for the transaction. This can further be reinforced with short wall cabinets to represent the number of files regarding transactions with other clients. Ergo it would give client a sense of security in his investment in the company, knowing that the organization is concerned about his investment and his finances. Both combinations work well for business and any organization.
