I don't see the problem. Going into a drawing program, and making a
rectangle of the right shape to represent the room, and then smaller
rectangles of the appropriate size to represent the bed, and my guesses
for the sizes of the night stands and small dresser, it looks like there
is plenty of room.
When eyeballing an empty room and trying to visualize your stuff there,
it often seems a lot smaller than it really is. Measure everything and
actually give it a try, in a drawing program, or get some graph paper
and make some cutouts representing the room, furnishings, and people,
and play around. Be sure to do your current apartment, in addition to
the townhome you are considering, to have a comparison.
What my mother did, 50 years ago and again 25 years ago, and again 15
years ago, is make a diagram** of the room and measure off the
furniture on it, to scale. She didn't use graph paper and I don't
think you need it. They even sell kits now with pr-emade paper
outlines of furntiure, but that I think is mostly for when you haven't
the bought the furniture yet, because if you have it already, you want
to use the exact correct dimensions.
**Diagram is too strong a word. Almost all the rooms I have had have
been rectangles. You get one side in the right proportion to the
adjoining side, and you're done.
The last time she moved, when she was about 78, she forgot to check if
the ceiling was high enough for the breakfront, WHERE the breakfront
was going to go. Which was right under a heating duct, covered in
sheetrock of course. Fortunately, she still had 2 inches of
clearance. Normallly of course there was about 14.
