I'm going to be getting my own scraproom in the near future and I'm trying to plan the furniture (considering getting built in cabinets). The one thing I am stuck on is how I want to store my paper. Right now I use vertical storage but I'm not sure if I love it. I know I can't store it horizontally- I have WAY too much for that and need to be able to flip through it easily. So between vertical storage or hanging files, what do you find works best? I'd love to hear your pros and cons on the subject.

-Maximum use of space
-Can (kind of) see what I have

-Exposure to light
-The edges being worn after being flipped through
-Not easily able to "reorganize" my paper when I decide to group multiple categories together or to separate groups into multiple categories.

Hanging File Folders
-Quickly flip through papers
-Easy to keep organized and add papers into their sections
-Protected from light and dust
