Folding pieces

You may need a desk and a dining table, but do you really need them 24-7? Instead, think about installing furnishings that can fold up when not in use. You’ll free up floor space and avoid inevitable clutter. If you have a one-wall kitchen, folding doors can conceal clutter when not in use.

Let in the Light
