We bet you didn’t think that the way you sort your files or store your stock can get out of style. Oops, you might just be wrong. Work environments are constantly evolving, and with an increase in remote workers, office containers and storage solution trends have also changed. To keep you up to date in the loop, we’ve compiled a list of the top five trends that are ranking high in the storage solution industry, that we’re sure you won’t want to miss
1. Open Shelving and Racking
There has been a big increase in the popularity of open shelves and racks. However, for it to be functional as well as visually appealing, we recommend arranging it in a tidy and organised fashion. This minimalist design aesthetic is quickly becoming a favourite and allows you to keep everything you need on a daily, in sight and in reach.
2. Mobile Office Containers
You know the saying ‘out of sight, out of mind’? Gone are the days where you had a specific closet designated for a specific item that stayed fixed in one place. These past few years there has been a big increase in the popularity of mobile office containers, allowing people to take everything they need with them as they become more flexible with their work environments.
3. Lockers as Storage
In this trend, we’re seeing all our favourite back to school basics coming back. Locker storage is an excellent way of storing cleaning supplies or other items that you’d rather not be visible 24/7. Lockers also offer extra security for those who want to lock up and go.
4. Clear the clutter
We remember the days where each employee had a designated shelf that they would cram everything into and that was best left unopened. Nowadays, the trends are moving more and more towards functional and organised workspaces. This means including designated smaller storage units and office containers for each item you work with. This creates a clean, neat and tidy workspace.
5. Figure out what works best for you
As trends come and go, it’s important to find a storage solution that works best for you and your team. Some individuals work better and feel more productive by storing their documents in a stack on their desk. Others prefer labelled files and folders. Remember to focus on what feels right for your office and your industry.
