Living in a loft space or an attic apartment can come with some challenges, as slanted roofs can make moving around and decorating somewhat of a magic trick. Freshome.com recently showcased an apartment with such problems, but these tenants proved that making use of the best furniture for your space is the ultimate way to embrace its uniqueness.

One way to make this work is by creating low seating where the ceilings are slanted. By placing low benches in this area, you'll be able to utilize the layout and create more space for guests. Finding or building benches with available storage underneath is another way to clean clutter, as you may not be able to use standard storage units within the given set-up.

Implementing window treatments that flow with your overall design is another way to make the most of your unique circumstances. You probably won't want to install floor-length drapes, as you'll need all the room you can get. Installing roman shades or blinds that easily go up and stay up will keep this necessity out of the way when you want the sun to shine in.

Performing these small updates and choosing colors that brighten your apartment will give you the cozy and clutter-free area you've always wanted but never thought you could have.
