If your small kitchen is L shaped you will have a number of different choices. Just remember to do the math. You do not want a table measuring six feet in a space that measure seven feet. The table may fit, but besides looking totally out of place, getting to the seats will be next to impossible. There is a basic rule that two feet is needed to comfortably reach and leave the table regardless of its style. If the measurements are square, such as 6x6 feet, you can opt for a small round or square table. If the measurements are rectangular as in 6x8 feet, you may want to consider a table that is narrow and long. Both the bench and drop leaf styles would work well in these spaces. Just remember that both floor space and proportion are the two most important factors to keep in mind.
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.
Renting furniture can be a good idea, and if you find later on that you actually like the piece you are renting, many companies will actually use the money you have already spent renting towards the purchase of the item you want.
