The recommended height for file cabinets is whatever size best suits your room and decor. We've got a variety of options to choose from in many materials and designs. Gone are the days when standard metal filing cabinets were the only available storage. Find a filing cabinet that looks like furniture and visually warm up your home office. Choose from Mobile, Vertical, Pedestal, Flat, and Lateral options in heights that range from 20 inches to 71 inches tall. You can find smaller file cabinets that sit on a desk or tall ones that stand alongside your workspace. Either way, there are cabinets that can fit almost anywhere in your office.
