A lot of times walls are used only to hang art pieces and small shelves. When dealing with small spaces it is crucial to include walls in the space plan to design a systematic home.

You can use wall-hung shelves, foldable beds, custom made openable wardrobes, hanging planters, wall-mounted side tables, and other well-designed furniture pieces to make the floor less busy.
