Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so cute. I had to own one. I purchased this to place on top of my desk for small items such as batteries, cables, labels, small office supplies, greeting cards, and markers. The drawer dividers are great to keep things neat and organized inside the drawers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe atypical use - but perfect for jewelry I admit it - I have an obession with costume jewelry and storing the items in a safe, but easily accessible manner has been a challenge. I have tried boxes, displays on counter tops, stackable trays and all have drawbacks. Being a art director by training I knew this brand for art supply storage...I have to say it has been truly PERFECT for my vast collection of earring and link bracelets. I use it on an open shelf in my dressing room and the drawers make for easy access and you can organize earring type by drawer. The one drawback is that the liners for the drawers are super expensive IMHO given their material but are key to easy use of the cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A splash of color in my office This perfect little drawer system is really lovely in my office. I needed something slender but with lots of storage to store my sticker and stationery collection. This was perfect. Each drawer can be labeled as well!! The drawers are also heavy duty! Worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and so functional! I ended up buying two to store art supplies in. These small drawers coupled with the little black inserts make this a perfect solution for all sorts of small items corralled in to one place. And so cute!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!! Sturdy and very versatile I actually have the larger ones and I use them for my makeup. The drawers are nice, deep and slide easily. This is very easy to organize and I’m now purchasing this smaller size for jewelry as well as home improvement items like screws, nails etc...again you can use these for anything. They’re attractive and super handy. I’ve never had any issues with these tipping or any issues of any kind. I’d recommend these to anyone who needs to organize their life and you’d like something maybe a little less traditional. I’ve had mine for at least 5 years and they still look and act brand new. Wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these cabinets I was reorganizing my basement and I had seen these cabinets a while back. I thought they were cute, but couldn't really think of a use for them. Well, during my reorganization, I thought of one -- they are *perfect* for storing my batteries. We have lots of toys, electronics, remotes, game controllers and flameless candles that go through tons of batteries so I buy them in bulk at Costco. But storing them was kind of a pain. Now, each battery type has its own drawer, and it is SO easy to find them and keep them organized. I did have to put the ones with C and D batteries on the bottom two drawers, which was no big deal. I never thought I'd love a battery storage system so much. I got another one to store other odds and ends -- the drawers fit more than I thought they would. Pricey, but I got on a special, so the value was decent enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't Know I'd Like a Red Metal Box This Much When I saw this on sale over the holidays, I couldn't not buy it. I am a working designer/artist who's a sucker for the perfect shade of red, so this was a good match for my also red bedsheets and curtains. I'd read up on the history of Bisley, a company almost a century old now, and the design sense and quality of this drawer live up to its legacy. I LOVE the look and feel of the metal sheen, handles, and how the drawers glide, so was willing to fork over more $$ over a plastic mini drawer. My only very minor complaint is that some of the tabs that hold up the drawers slipped out at first, but it's easy to put them back in their slots and hasn't been a problem since. It's really just a great addition to a room, and I feel like it says a lot about prioritizing design by whoever uses it. The price is a bit more steep than I'd prefer but I'm glad I got it on sale, and again the history of the company probably speaks to that. The drawer organizer inserts are also a bit pricey but the design of everything is just so tight, so it's hard to complain otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Served Purpose Beautifully 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking and functional 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cede 45 Dimensions are inaccurate. The measurements are for the outside with no reference to the size paper the drawers can hold
Date published: 2015-06-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for crafting supplies 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cabinet 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. What’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. It’s worth it. (Notice my husband hasn't labeled his drawers- but we still know where our documents are.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quilters must have 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!

Is there an accessory tray for 8 1/2" x 11" paper?

All of the drawers for the Bisley are made for inserts with symmetric storage. I want to store 8 1/2" x 11" paper in a tray in the Bisley. Does anyone make an insert for this purpose, or is there something else that holds paper that fits nicely in there?
Asked by: chad9000
It would be really helpful if there were an actual paper size tray, because the drawer is actually a bit larger than a full sheet of paper. And then the paper floats around and gets messy in the drawer. In fact it would be helpful if there was an inset that was closer to the size of actual paper at 8.5/11 with a smaller section for pencils/pens. None of the other dividers fit full size pens or pencils.

How much does the unit weigh?

Asked by: SFSunny
I can't say exactly, since I do not own scales, but I'm going to guess just under ten pounds; the drawer set is all steel construction, but it is at least as heavy as a gallon of milk, maybe a bit heavier.

I could only find the dimensions of the outside of the whole unit. I really would love to know the size of the inside of the drawers please :)
Asked by: Foveolata
Please note that the CS give the inside dimensions, but they are not sufficient to hold items in regular file folders (oyu'd have to trim the tabs by about 3/8 inch).

Is this item weight bearing?

I'd like to stack a medium sized microwave on them.

Somewhat. Could put lamp, or even another cabinet on top of it. I wouldn’t push it though with placing a heavy box on it.
