Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than you think This is a great item. It's rather large on your desktop and workbench - where I initially bought it to keep - so I wound up keeping it on the lower-level of some shelves. Which means I never bothered to reach down (Oh, my aching back!) and therefore never really used it for storage. Flash forward to COVID and bye-bye workshop hello homeschool classroom, and as I've reorganized I've finally figured out how to get the most use out of it. First, I keep it on my now desk/worktable so it's within reach. Second, instead of just throwing odds and ends small things in there (Pens, loose screws, small tools, etc.) I put a little time in up front to organize each drawer to hold things that I need to use regularly and otherwise have time finding. In my case, I use this is for the workshop side of my life, i.e., drawing and jewelry making. Sketching materials up top. Semi-precious stones, in tray organizers, in the next few drawers. Sheets of copper and silver in the bottom one. Wish it hadn't taken me so long to figure this out, but now I'm just glad I can put it to good use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Typing/Writing Desk addition I purchased this product for my typing/writing table it is so pretty as it sits there on the table . It is used for storing my writing and typing items. One of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I’m thinking about purchasing another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bits & Bobs Organizer I bought this for my boyfriend, as he was struggling to keep his computer and electronics building parts organized. It works beautifully to store smaller bits in containers and is the perfect dimensions for some of the larger items that need to lay flat. In black with chrome detail, the cabinet looks elegant in classic office style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yellow 5-drawer cabinet Nice color and generous size. The only drawback is the drawers pull all the way out---nothing to prevent contents of drawer from spilling out. Be careful when opening drawers. I have decided to put heavier items in the bottom drawers to prevent the unit from tipping when opening the top drawers Hope this is helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bisley cabinets are the theme for my life, 3 Q 201 I got one of these babies--yellow--for our den. I wasn't sure I'd like it. I didn't like it--I LOVED it! I got one more and two blues! Then, I got three for my space at work along the green-blue spectrum. And, I got the cabinet that's about 2 feet tall for my den at home. I tend to struggle with paper, mail, knick knacks, things I am working on for my professional association, things I'm doing for fun. I just need a little space, but more than a jewelry box amount of room. I also want a device that looks nice--not a plastic set of drawers. This has been perfect. Suddenly, I have a place for my printer paper, my postage stamps, my binder clips, my mail, my partner's mail, my reports, a binder for my professional association, invoices for my expense reports, photos I'm digitizing. These cabinets are a game-changer for my adulthood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the color and construction using this to store art supplies for my watercolor painting. Great that its sturdy and good size for smaller items. Was able to fit all my supplies in it with some room to spare. A bit on the expensive side but works better than the plastic kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Small Storage I now own five of these Bisley storage units, for which I have at home and work. All other brands are just imitations which do not sustain daily use. I love that there are organizers for the drawers. As my storage needs change, I am able to update with the interior dividers. These metal units are well worth the price, as I purchased my original unit eight years ago, and I really use it. I finally purchased a color other than white this time, in yellow. The colors are gorgeous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Going backwards I'm very disappointed with my new 5 drawer cabinet. I have several of these in different sizes and configurations that I have purchased over many years and have really liked them for the construction and simple style. While the exterior design has not changed the interior construction has and not for the better. The drawer supports used to be fixed. Now they are movable. I can understand why they did this. It gives them more flexibility when it comes to the shell and what size drawer will go into it but the supports don't stay in place and the tolerance on the sides is so close that if you remove a drawer getting it back in is difficult. Unfortunately if you want to add one of their divider trays you have to remove the drawer. I will not be purchasing any more of these once wonderful (but pricey) cabinets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like It! Good little cabinet for what I need it for and really like the look. It fits a bunch more than originally anticipated. Some of the drawers catch on one another. I switched them around and it seemed to get better. I did end up buying organizers for some of the drawers, like it even more now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cabinets I just purchased a 4 drawer. Then went back and purchased 2 of the 8 drawer unites. They are perfect for all my heavy silversmithing tools. The drawers are even deep enough for my hammers with room to spare. I lined them with some nonslip shelf liner. These are going to work better than any other cabinets I have looked at. I also purchased the divider inserts. I bought several different configurations to see which ones would work best. There are roomie and easy to use. Perfect for bits and smaller parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to Duplicate While not the most inexpensive option i found difficult to get, in my opinion, this much easy to acces storage in this small of a footprint. With one cabinet my printer area was instantly tidied up and I wasn’t juggling boxes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tamed my junk drawer The Bisley 5-drawer cabinet with the various sized drawer inserts holds everything in an organized way that used to be jumbled in my junk drawer; everything from a tape measure to scissors to paperclips. I had only one problem which I solved with some glue. Three of the drawer guides kept popping out of their slots, causing the drawers to tilt downward when opened. No matter how hard I pushed them back into their slots, they continued to pop out of position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Art Studio! One of these drawers fits 48-tubes of acrylic paint PERFECTLY. I love, love, love this unit. I have two of them and want to get at least one more (this time in aqua!) for my desk. So versatile! In one unit, I have each drawer corresponding to a different brand of coloured pencils/watercolour pencils, and in my other unit, I have a drawer for acrylics, a drawer for watercolour palettes, a drawer for pastels, a drawer for all my brushes, etc. I'd love to get another for my desktop for odds-and-ends and for sewing knick-knacks! Stylish and functional, I definitely recommend! I wish they also came in purple!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great drawers, but... It holds a lot! Great for bead and jewelry storage. I really like this cabinet and the design is really nice, but... I also got another one in Aqua....the Aqua one has a glossy finish, while this one in Cerulean Blue has a matte finish. You can definitely tell since they're sitting next to each other. The finish feels different too. Had I known that the finishes were so different, I would have just purchased one color. Nothing on the website indicated this. Other than that, I really like these cabinets.

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.

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.

Is there a Word template available for the label inserts that come with these?

They come on a sheet of 3x8, with each insert 48mm x 25mm. I can't find a matching Avery template, nor one from the Bisley website.
Asked by: Arkham
I use a label program called "my label designer deluxe" from "mysoftware" along with Avery #5167 return address labels and print the labels then adhere them to the blank cards that come with the cabinet. Looks very clean and professional.

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.
