A bed in the corner may seem like the only solution, here we'll show you alternative solutions! Or, for those times when the corner IS truly the only option, we'll show you ways to make it look more attractive.
1) Omit the headboard.
Perhaps you have another room you could use it? Notice below, by removing the headboard the room doesn't look unbalanced. With a headboard, it would make it obvious that the bed is not in the center of the wall.

When the bed can't be centered on the wall, consider an entire wall treatment of wood, wallpaper or fabric
2) Scale back on large furnishings!
Maybe that means giving away part of the bedroom set to a family member? Or to someone in need. Maybe it means moving the large piece to a bigger room. Try to visualize the space as a welcoming guest room, one that feels spacious! This will help you feel open to change.

After, the small dresser and drapes at the window made this small bedroom feel larger
This might mean getting a lower headboard, or using the other means explained in "can the bed be in front of the window?" http://www.interiordesigngreensboro.com/search?q=bed%2C+window
Notice all the possibilities this open for how to layout your small bedroom!

The best way to decide what bedroom layout you like best is to try out different options! Home Depot sells plastic pads to place under the furniture which make the furniture slide easily... they can be very helpful as it's not worth injuring yourself moving furniture!
