The real trick is to make your space feel spacious before you tackle how to make it look larger.
Leave a width of at least 18 inches of walking space on the sides and the foot of the bed if you sleep as a couple. You can use design and color trickery to make your bedroom look larger. But you can't fool your toe at 3am in the morning when you've just rammed it into a bed leg because there wasn't enough room to maneuver.
So when planning your bed frame shopping, mentally add 36 inches to the width dimension to ensure that your queen bed will fit comfortably in your bedroom. In the US a queen bed is 60 inches wide and 80 inches long (154 x 203 cm). You'll need a room at least 96 inches (8 feet) wide.
But in the UK that same size is called a 'king'. A US king size bed frame is significantly larger. If you're at all confused about which bed size is for you check out international mattress sizes at queen size bed dimensions and our mattress size charts.
