The furnishings in a small apartment are generally chosen on the basis of their ability to fulfill multiple functions and fit the space perfectly. The furnishings are generally custom-designed, using every inch of space efficiently and supporting various household functions. Units that serve as bookshelves and as kitchen fixtures, a closet that houses a lavatory, and foldaway desks are some of the features that do double duty and are totally integrated with the existing elements.
