After you figured out what your essential activities are, you are ready to start going furniture shopping. Try to find pieces of furniture that serve two uses. Storage ottomans are a terrific example, because you can sit on them, use them as a coffee table, and also store things out of sight. Wall shelves and containers are very useful because you may be tight on shelf space and youre certainly tight on floor space. If you are buying a bed, seriously consider the kinds of beds but you can store things under. Finally, try to go for height -- floor-to-ceiling shelving has made the difference in many small apartments and dorm rooms.
There are bar tables that come with stools. These are also known as pub tables and go a long way in serving an excellent purpose. The one drawback is the minimal seating which does not comfortably accommodate more than two people. For couples with children there are better choices some of which have already been mentioned.
If youre new to apartment living, you want to put most of your effort into decorating the spaces youll be living in most. You want to find comfort in these areas, particularly the living room and bedroom. Make sure your best furniture goes in these rooms. You can put the other furniture in the rooms that are less frequently used. Extra storage is really important in a small apartment. If you have furniture that already features storage, make sure you use these pieces first. This will keep your apartment from feeling crowded or cluttered. Also, remember that you dont want to overload your living room, bedroom or dining room with too much furniture. Less really is more, as long as the furniture you select is useful, comfortable and welcoming.
