Scale it up to trick the eye
In a compact bedroom, use the ‘play with scale’ technique often adopted by hotel chains to make their rooms feel large and sumptuous: fit a big headboard to fool the eye into thinking the room is more spacious than it really is.
An upholstered one in soft linen or wool, and accompanied by a pile of cushions and soft layering on the bed, will further emphasise the feeling of luxury and comfort, and add a sense of importance to a small space. - hamptonhome
