Is there any way your could cut into the wall behind the dresser and take space from the other side?

I really think that this room would seem larger if you decluttered all the surface tops, and maybe got a smaller dresser. It really is just too large for the space.

Although your lamps are lovely, you would gain some space on your night tables by having bedside lamps that are attached to the wall with swing arms to allow them to be moved closer and further away from the bed as well.

Looks like you have two choices: get a larger bedroom or get less stuff. Maybe you could use one of these:

Do you have a budget for new furniture or will you be making do with rearranging and decluttering?

What is on the fourth wall that is not in the photos? Usually a 1960's corner bedroom would have one blank wall with no windows or doors.

Apple, maybe that is the 4th wall with the door? But something could be placed ther on the walls ith a place to store all the bottles of stuff that are seen on the tops of everything. Some very shallow cabinets or something could be hung to keep things neat.

Empty the room give it fresh coat of paint and get some sort of organizer ,clutter will make any room feel and look too small.

Raise your bed and use the space underneath for storage.

What if you tried lowering the bed to give the illusion of more space? (Unless of course you are using under the bed for storage that you are actually using, not for the dust collecting type storage). Also, there are fabulous corner bookshelves that could create space. I am dealing with a similar issue, and really like having the bed lower.
