I am so very happy with my Bisley 5-Drawer Cabinets that I can't CONTAIN myself!
As a baker, I found myself frustrated by how to organize the numerous small tools that bakers use. Once I discovered these Bisley cabinets, frustration soon morphed into elation! After purchasing one, I knew I'd be back for another and another.
These cabinets are very well made, and the deep drawers, coupled with the accompanying inserts that are available, are an incredible asset whether you're a home baker or a professional. My thanks to The Container Store for carrying them!
You won't be disappointed if you decide to purchase one!

I am a long-arm quilter, and I use pre-wound bobbins -- lots of them! Figuring out how to "file" them was becoming a challenge. Then that Bisley 5-drawer cabinet (in blue, no less!) entered the sewing room. Each drawer is roomy enough for a minimum of a half-gross of bobbins, so I segregated them out into colors, and in no time, those bobbins were organized. When I started enlarging the bobbin inventory, I even bought a second cabinet. I LOVE being organized!

I looked at these file cabinets for several years and recently bought one. It is excellent for storing beads and buttons.

Often I would see the the Bisley 5-drawer cabinet while shopping in The Container Store but never felt it would be functional for me. I decided to give it a try to organize my tubes of paint, pencils and multiplying crochet hooks. The cabinet is roomier than I could have imagined. It holds so much that I don't have to stuff anything in the drawers. I now have a centralized place to neatly keep all smaller items.
The cabinet is sturdy and the cerulean color is beautiful.

Love the unit and especially that is comes in bright yellow. Do check your unit thoroughly before leaving the store to be sure no scratches and that all drawers work properly. Once home, works like a charm. Get the inserts if you're putting smaller items in the drawers.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jojo418 Good makeup storage
Overall it is a good product. I use it in my bathroom to store my makeup in. Drawers are deep and wide enough to fit a lot in. The Aqua color is beautiful. The only problem I had with this product is the paint chips (my product was shipped directly to my house therefore I could not look it over before purchasing), the metal edges don't exactly meet together (might just be my OCD) and the tracks the drawers are on fall easily causing the drawer to not close properly. Btw, the metal inside is very sharp. Other than that I am very pleased with the purchase.

I ordered 3 units - 1 each in silver, cerelean blue and green just to check quality and color. I was pleased. Good product, great for organization and great color range available. Would give it a five star great review, but top rail came loose and I had to repair. But even with that mishap, I am ordering 10 more for my craft room reorganization project.

My office is Pink and when I seen this I was ecstatic. I have actually ordered 2 of them. They hold a lot and I want to order the larger pink ones to match. Just need to make room for them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bklynbirdy Attractive and useful
The cabinet arrived two days ago in perfect condition, and well should it have, considering how many layers of protection it had.
I transferred over lots of odds and ends that had previously been in a couple of mismatched smaller containers taking up space on my desk, and still have two empty drawers (no doubt a temporary condition). My desk area is neater, and the cabinet is much better looking than what I had earlier.
The cabinet is very solid and heavy. The drawers pull out easily without shifting the cabinet.
The online description of the cabinet could be better - I notice that almost all the Q&As asked about the interior size of the drawers (1 7/8" high, by the way - not what I'd think of as "deep" though adequate for what I'm storing).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bottm4UBoy High Quality - Functional & Beautiful
I bought this orange cabinet and I love it. It is a hard to find color that matches my walls perfectly It is "cute" and sits atop my desk so I find it both beautiful and functional. It has 5 drawers that make it handy to store lots of items. No dividers in the drawer which makes it customizable to put many different items inside it. It is a well-made metal file - just like those used in office settings, yet in a smaller size. I love the drawers, the color, the metal material and the ease of use. It is very sturdy and solid and the drawers open and close easily.
This cabinet is truly commercial grade. The available divider inserts (that are sold separately) allow you to customize the drawers to your liking. The pulls take labels to customize the cabinet to tell you what you have stored inside. . Some have commented they think the price is a little steep. I find the quality of this cabinet, in this color, right at $99 is perfect as this is a excellent five drawer cabinet in orange. I highly recommended it. It arrived in perfect condition and was packaged very well when they shipped it to me.

Dimensions are inaccurate. The measurements are for the outside with no reference to the size paper the drawers can hold

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RickinFlorida Just junk
Looks nice but VERY poorly built. The drawers slide on rails that are press-fastened via slip in tabs to struts in the cabinet. The rails stay in place as long as the drawer immediately above is fully closed to keep weight on the rails. If not, or if you're opening the top drawer, the rails, which not only serve as drawer slides but also to keep the lower drawer from falling out as it is opened, will ... push the rails out of place and fall out. NOW you get to try to put the drawer rails back in so IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN. These Bisley cabinets are just junk IMHO!

I got this to use for embroidery tools, thread, scissors, patterns, etc. and I love it. It is quite sturdy, looks cool, and keeps my gear nicely organized. The drawer liners are nice but a bit flimsy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Manchester Most useful ever!
I bought this red cabinet last year and I dearly LOVE it. Beside the fact it's so "cute" and comes in many colors, it's truly quite functional. I have many hobbies/crafts, and the drawers hold all my nuts/bolts/screws/ washers/molly bolts, picture hangers, etc. Each size nail has its own compartment. I left the top drawer open, no dividers, and it holds my hammer, screwdriver, tape measure, and bulkier things. It's a very sturdy, well-made metal file - just like those used in office settings - only in a smaller size. You can't go wrong with this purchase.

Nice little cabinet. Green color is not as vibrant as I had hoped for when ordering it. Works well and was a nice purchase. Seems sturdy, just a bit expensive for what you are getting.

I make high-end custom made pens. Due to the various styles and materials used in the process, I have lots of small parts and tooling. So I had a need for a good, sturdy storage and separating system. I had been using small, compartmentalized plastic boxes and fishing tackle boxes but they never seemed to hold everything just quite right. Then I found these 5 drawer cabinets. These things are built extremely well in England. They are heavy and the quality shows. They remind me of cabinets I used to see in machine shops. My cabinet doesn't sit on a table in an office but on a workbench in a shop. And it looks like it belongs. These truly are commercial grade. The available divider inserts allow me to customize the drawers to my liking. The pulls take labels to customize the unit, but all the available colors are also a good way to help you organize by color. Some have commented they think the price is a little steep. To them I say, "You get what you pay for". You definitely get what you pay for with these.

Â by OrganizingAddictJ Love These!
Originally I hesitated at the steep price of these drawers, but after looking around for a less expensive alternative, and finding only clunky plastic drawers that I knew I would hate after about a week, I decided that I might as well try these. Twelve years later, I am so glad I did. They still look gorgeous, modern and brand new!
Originally I bought one cabinet for my husband to keep our important papers organized after a birth-certificate-loosing scare (He was born in France. Requesting a new birth certificate would have been a horrible chore.) Recently, I realized our home office with its lovely (but maybe not perfectly shelved) built-in cabinets needed to be reorganized. Spread out over two cabinets, I had greeting cards arranged in an eclectic mix of pretty boxes that I had been collecting since childhood. Stacked neatly in another two cabinets, I had our Circa notebook paper collection and our looseleaf paper, photo paper, cardstock, and printing labels. I decided another Bisley splurge was necessary.
During the reorganization I was able to condense everything neatly into two Bisley Cabinets and a few Bigso Paper drawers and boxes. They all fit into two of my built-in cabinets! Because everything is labeled and nothing is stacked anymore, I can find and retrieve everything easily. Whatâ¿¿s more: reorganizing with the Bisley cabinets completely cleared two of our office cabinets! With the empty cabinets I was able to clean out everything I had stashed away in our den. Now the interiors of my cabinets are so beautiful that I have to take a few seconds to gaze admiringly them every now and then.
If this cabinet fits your needs. You should definitely splurge on it. Itâ¿¿s worth it.
(Notice my husband hasn't labeled his drawers- but we still know where our documents are.)

This is my new favorite thing for my sewing room. It is great thread storage. Each drawer will hold 60 rolls of coats and clark 250 yard spools of thread. And it is just the right size footprint for countertops. You will LOVE it. The hardest part will be picking a color! No buyers remorse here!

Love my Bisley Cabinet. It fits perfectly on my desk and is easily accessible. I love that they come in many colors so it fits your personality. I also love that they make inserts to help organize each of the drawers to your specifications. Thanks so much for a great product. Please bring The Container Store to Birmingham, AL!!!

Â by MeganPortland I love this cabinet!
I bought this to store my makeup in. The drawers are spacious and I can fit all of my products in here, keep them organized, and view them easily. I love not having my products in clear containers or strewn about the top of my dresser. I have zero space in my bathroom (no drawers), so this was the perfect solution for makeup storage!
My one complaint is that a bit of the green coloring is missing from the corner--not sure why--but it arrived that way. If I could, I would give it 4.5 stars instead of 5.

I was once told people are either filers or "pilers". I tend to organize in piles and forget to put stuff in file folders. This is perfect for me, it sits on my desk and I can organize my piles.

I purchased the Bisley 5-drawer desktop cabinet to keep my work in on my desk. It is so much better than those stackable open trays for keeping work in. It keeps things off of my desk and out of sight, but at my fingertips when needed. I bought 2 of them and keep one on my credenza with all of my electronics in it so when the grandkids come over they know where to find my Nook, ear buds, DS, chargers, camera, battery packs, etc. Very handy, looks good and comes in a variety of colors to add a little spark to my office! ^_^

The 5 drawer cabinet is a great way to store the papers that float around on your kitchen counters. Everything is contained. The cabinet can sit on the cabinet and be out of the way.

I ordered 2 of these in the green as storage for my jewelry studio. Organization is a nightmare for people in my business. Storing all of the gemstones and findings that I use in my business is difficult and I spend a lot of time just searching for things. I saw these and was excited because they seemed that they would be helpful for storing small items and also are stylish. They arrived today (very quickly!) and are so nice! very sturdy and the drawers slide easily. I love the color as it matches accents in my studio very well. These are so much better than I thought they'd be so I ordered another tonight!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Elia0224 Good product but ...
Bisley shortened the depth of this cabinet by about an inch. But the real problem is that two out of four were dented inside their packing box. Since the box was not damaged, I think that the damage happened in manufacture.
The plastic inserts for drawers are pricey ($14 each) and should cost about $4-$6.
TheContainerStore had the two bad ones picked up and will deliver two new. We'll see if they are damaged. Statistically, 1 out of 2 will be :-))
