This 12-by-17-foot apartment does not leave much space for creating a separate bedroom, kitchen and living room, but the neutral color scheme and warm accessories provide an open feel with the intimacy of a small space. "My biggest challenge was creating a space that did not feel like a bedroom. I placed the bed next to the kitchen to allow maximum light and views out the windows," HGTV fan moderngeek73 says. Tip: Keep furniture and decor to a minimum if your space is extra small. Use small light fixtures and furnishings.
