How to make the most of a small room?

So the room I'm renting for next year is VERY tiny. I'm not terribly worried about it, because I'll share a living room and kitchen and all that stuff, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about how to make the most of my small room. The bed is a loft, and I'm going to put a desk and small bookcase under it. There will be a closet, but probably no room for a dresser. Do you have any suggestions for storage space, making the room look bigger, decorating tips... anything? Thanks in advance!


  1. make sure you use light colors, dark ones make the room look smaller. and lighter ones open up the room. i would suggest you put shelves on the walls or get a bed with storage underneath example: http://www.jordans.com/room_facts.asp?item=BZ0-40240-0&room=bedroom&style=all&type=beds&size=&index=42 make sure not to over furnish the room though, it could feel cramped and even smaller, make sure you leave a lot of open space.. hope those help =]
