It needs to be compact enough to permit easy mobility, while at the same time have adequate storage space to meet requirements.
The units need to be sturdy and durable, and last long enough to justify the cost while at the same time preventing the need for frequent purchases or replacement of parts. The finish of the storage units should last long and be resistant to moisture, while not shedding color easily or fading prematurely.
