Each object in the room plays a big role in designing a room weather it is small or big.

Use lighter colors for smaller rooms and furniture. Which makes the room feel bigger.
Use some light weight furniture like a sleek sofa and chairs. Always leave a little space in between wall and furniture.

Round tables are better for your dinnig room when there is not enough space. When dealing with small rooms arrange the furniture in one corner so people will get a passage. If possible use linen like lightweight material for curtains, which will increase the airiness in the room. If you go for a wallpaper or a painting then use one wall for that and leave the rest of the room.
Use of mirrors gives more light to the room. So place it in an appropriate height.
