2. Create space around the bed
Moving the bed closer to the wall gives the impression of more space. Consider moving the bed away from the window and center it so that aisles on both sides are opened up. When you do this, the flow of the room will make it easier for your visitors to access the bed.

    I love the look of that gray paint with that wood floor on the picture right above point number 5. Maybe I will keep this picture available to me while I am having one of my rooms repainted. It might be a good idea to get professional help with this because I don’t have the skills or tools to do it this good.
