Empty walls are valuable real estate in dwellings with a small footprint, and they can be used for much more than a place to display framed art.

Hanging pots and pans in your kitchen is a no-brainer, but you can also hang pegboard and organize all of your display-worthy kitchen gadgets. And don't just stop in the kitchen. Make your jewelry a work of art in your tiny bedroom by arranging your prettiest pieces in shadowboxes and hanging them on the wall. Or, install some patterned metal or tin in an old frame and use that as a drop station for your necklaces.
