I receive paper bills and need a place to store them. Some people still require payment by check, so I need to keep copies of cancelled checks. I have to keep copies of receipts for medical/dental/pharmacy as well as for charitable donations. The IRS expects you to be able to produce receipts. I need a desk with drawers or one that has a cabinet on wheels that fits under the desk. Actually, I need 2 such cabinets or on of those and a file cabinet. In addition to storing papers, they hold my supplies (tape, stapler, etc.). And even if I had a laptop computer, I still need room for the printer. Forget style, I need space!

@sonny62 for the clients dining room we used natural stone tiles behind the custom apothecary inspired cabinet we designed. Hope that helps and thank you for you kind words!

I think it is a very, well-designed use of space. My only minor criticism would be the breakfast table is a little too small for functionality.
