While you hopefully have more space than a ships cabin, thinking with that kind of intention and priority can get you significantly more mileage out of the few square feet that you do have. The first thing to consider is what you want to do when your space. Please dont just say Duh. I want to live in it. Do you like to play video games? Do you like to read? Cook? Do you spend a lot of time in the bathroom or getting dressed so you look your best? Pick 2-3 activities that are really essential to your well-being, and start thinking about how to use your space to let you do those things in the best way possible. If being well-dressed is really important to you, this may mean using a significant portion of your wall space for a very large mirror. If you like to cook, it may mean expanding your kitchen space with shelves or by hanging pots and hands or by adding a kitchen island. If you like to read, it may mean putting in one large comfy chair so that you could really relax and take in a book.
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.
Be on the look out for special deals. One of the biggest deals is free rent for the first month, and sometimes two months. This can be great if you are in a tight spot, and need some extra money the first month you move into your apartment. To make it easier for you, always find a rental agency that delivers and sets up your furniture for you. Also find an agency that supplies a warranty on the furniture you rent, especially for things like electronics. Unless you have your own insurance policy set up, it is also a good idea to get the rental insurance as well, just in case something happens.
