    Mirrors help...something well placed and tasteful.

    Can you post a picture of the room Grace. There are many tricks, mirrors as Lori suggested, also using a monochromatic light color scheme, and/or textures instead of prints, but a photo of the room might help us come up with more ideas for your room personally.

    Lighter colors tend to feel more open as well.

    Accessories can be big help in a small room, but the biggest secret is to select the right size and amount of furniture. Its intended use is also important. If it is a guest room, all you need is comfort for a guest for a short time. If it is a kid's room, you will need storage and milk crates as shown in an earlier post today can be used in strategic areas. A kid will need junk storage space so a smaller chest with a stack of crates attached to the wall might serve better than a large chest! Good luck!
