The foremost strategy for making a small bedroom seem bigger is to cut down on the clutter. Discard things that no longer serve any purpose, and always remember to keep your clothes folded, your shoes stored away and your accessories neatly arranged on shelves and in cupboards. The messier a room, the more cramped it looks.
To maximize limited floor space — especially because the bed typically takes up much of this valuable real estate — incorporate flexible furniture that folds up to the wall. You might try a foldout desk that doubles as a makeup table. A wall-mounted pullout shoe organizer in the closet can free up space on the closet floor for a small chest of drawers, adding needed storage.
Similarly, window drapery can be hung from the ceiling instead of on the wall just above the window. Hardware for most window treatments is designed to be flexible. So try turning the bracket up and installing it on the ceiling. The length and vertical lines of the drape will make the ceiling feel higher and the room larger.
Storage furniture, such as bedside tables with drawers or even small dressers, can also be affixed to the wall, leaving space beneath to store shoes or stylish baskets stashed with necessities.
