Can we do anything with this apartment?

My wife and 3 kids are living in this 900 square feet (85 square meters) flat. We're planning to change the walls positions, but we're not sure how to make it better.

Can you suggest how to improve this and if it's possible at all?

What problems are you encountering with the layout right now?

The hallways seem like a huge waste of space. No knowing what can & can't be moved, plumbing, load bearing walls, etc., that's all I have.

Eliminate the door from the living room to the hallway. Make the hallways into a master closet.

This is a tough one- I'm assuming the main door is to the right of the storage area? Can it be moved? Which bath is used by guests?

If possible, extend the living-room all the way to the bathroom, open the hallway up.
Move the lower bedroom wall in line with the upper bedroom.
get bunk-beds and desks.

With 3 children, I'd consider turning the BR adjacent to the kitchen to a single. Continue the perpendicular wall between the two rooms, thus giving more space to the LR. The other BR could be made slightly larger by extending the common wall with the bath.
You could also add a closet by putting up a wall to the right of the private bathroom door.

What a horrible layout! Can the bathrooms be moved? The hallway could be made into a walk-in closet off the master. The other should be living space.
