Hide in plain sightIn this dining room-cum-home-office, paperwork is stashed alongside the table in a filing cabinet that adds to the array of colours in the space. The cabinet sits happily alongside the classic chair designs, as it matches the metal of their frames. Filing cabinets like this one can squeeze must-keep papers into other rooms in your home without looking like imports from your nine-to-five building if you opt for distinctly un-corporate colourways.
Gather everyday essentials togetherIn all the disruption of a home improvement project, it’s crucial that you don’t lose essentials such as your keys, phone, chargers, project paperwork and tape measure. Consider setting up a workstation in a portable box or sturdy bag to keep these necessities to hand.How have you planned ahead for your renovation project? Share your thoughts in the Comments below.

Classic designs include plywood stacking chairs, sculpted plastic Robin Days or metal and wood, as here.If you can, check you’ll feel comfy sitting on them before buying (and, since they were designed for schoolchildren, that they’re big enough for your bottom!).
