The bedroom may be small as well; furnish it with a twin or full size foundation, a nightstand and dresser. Keep muddle in this room to a minimum as well, and add color with large wall hangings.
In a small apartment, all that is needed in the living room is a couch, chair and coffee table. You might place a small bookshelf in a spot to hold catalogs, and magazines with small lamp at the top. Keep furnishings from the wall so that the floor space in the center of the room is widely open and easy to walk through. A colorful accent rug in this area adds texture and extra color.
