Tip 2: Forget what you thought you knew about scale.A guest room in the River Road Cottage uses a bed that fills the space nearly wall to wall but manages to look cozy rather than cramped. Think about it — once you are tucked in, wouldn't you be more comfortable in a full bed than a shrimpy twin, even if the twin made the room look more spacious?
Keep the scale large. In a tiny room, even a double or queen-size bed will feel massive, and oversize scale translates to a feeling of comfort and warmth. You'll need enough room to walk on either side, so don't squeeze it in too tightly.
