We're at ~640 sq. ft with 2 adults, no pets, but have contemplating adding to our family without adding additional space. I'd agree with the ~200 sq ft/person guideline, although my spouse grew up in a space even smaller (family of 3), so he might be fine at ~150s.f/person. I also agree with the posts that it depends on layout. With smaller spaces, multifunctional space usage becomes increasingly important to make it work.

We've had our ISS system for 3 years -- used the ISS brackets and poles with IKEA wood shelving planks and drawer system. Have had plenty of complements and no problems with the system. Very pleased with it and are considering a second set of poles for another part of our apartment. Also, they were super easy to deal with on the purchase.

We had a really heavy wallpaper so we used the top and bottom rail package at Ikea (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80141685) which set us back a whopping $5 a panel. We hung two panels which are out of the way (so little wear) but after two years, still no problems with anything and the paper still looks great.
