I recently moved into a two-bedroom apartment with my family after living in a small one-bedroom for eight years. My two-year-old's crib was nestled neatly into an alcove under a stairway, and we had a huge kitchen that housed a 10-foot dining table. Our bedroom, however, was akin to a sleeping berth on a cruise ship. With literally only enough room to fit our queen bed between the walls, we had to be seriously creative about our space usage.
