Building a sump

Ok so I went out and got myself a 20gL tank and I want to build a sump I've seen different setups and I don't really know what way to go I want to put a refugium and protein skimmer and in it what other things do I need to make room for ? This is my 1st saltwater tank and want to do everything right so I do not kill everything I am going to put in

75 gallon saltwater new to the salt tanks
