    I will create everyday routinesWhile many think routines are binding, in fact, they’re the opposite. We all do several of the same tasks each and every day. By grouping these tasks together at a similar time, you create a routine. With a routine, you get through these – usually monotonous – tasks much more quickly. Then you’re free to get on with the rest of your day.By making a routine out of tasks you were doing anyway, you save time. You won’t have to think about what you’re going to do because it will be habitual. Making the bed and opening the curtains every day becomes a ritual and marks the start of your day. It makes the room look good from the moment your day begins – you’re already onto a winner.You can also create routines around the school run, after-dinner clear-up, or weekly cleaning tasks. Why drag out these jobs more than you have to?

    What finishes are available?The finishes applied to solid wood are lacquer, oil or hard wax oil, which are all used to enhance the beauty of the wood and offer differing degrees of protection.A lacquer is essentially a plastic coating that provides a durable surface. “Lacquers can sometimes look slightly artificial, although they are advancing well and many of them now look great,” says Devenish. The one drawback with lacquer is that you can’t do much to spot-repair damage. Oil is the most natural-looking of the finishes, but will require the most maintenance. “The oil sits in the pores of the wood, which gives good protection against moisture impregnation,” Devenish explains. “However, if it dries out, it offers almost no protection, which is why it’s so important to keep it maintained.” Hard wax oil is a good halfway house between lacquer and oil because it looks more natural than a lacquer and requires less maintenance than oil. “You can also spot-repair the finish if it gets local damage or wear,” adds Devenish.

    Call in the cavalryIf you choose to project manage your interiors job yourself, it’s certainly an enjoyable and rewarding process, but it also takes a certain type of person. You have to be organised, calm under pressure, strategic and confident – not to mention being able to afford the time to plan, coordinate and oversee the work.If you have qualms about taking it on yourself, then consider hiring a project manager. Yes, there will be a fee, but consider that a badly managed project can cost you time and money, and you may not achieve the results you were after. A pro will take care of everything and allow you to rest easy, knowing you’re in safe hands.TELL US…Have you project managed your own renovation or refit? How did it go?

    Go for brightWhite is calm, tranquil and timeless and will max the natural light in your home, so it’s just the job if you’re after a more Zen-like feel. Go for a whiteout, or simply use it as the backdrop and introduce pale neutrals and varied textures to keep the look soft, rather than sterile, as seen in this restful bedroom.
