✨ Select the flooring type you'd like from the 'Floors' menu

✨ In the 'Walls' menu, you can follow these same steps to select and place a wall - nice!

Ooops, made a mistake? Here's how to delete floors and walls!

2. Watch out! There are some objects that look like walls - like in the 'Divider' category in Mapmaker, but to delete or edit these, you'll have to be in the main 'Furniture' section, and not in the 'Walls' section of Mapmaker.

✨ Have a look at some examples below! These objects may look like walls, but they're actually in the 'Dividers' area :)
