Have you found yourself lacking space? Especially if you have recently moved or downsized. Did you know that there are ways to help your small space seem bigger? Here are our top 5 tips to help your small room look bigger. 

Clear Out The Clutter

Having a lot of clutter can make your space feel even more cramped and cluttered. There are several ways that you can do this. You can find more space to put these things such as over-the-door storage or under the bed storage. Or if you do not have the room for this, you could rent a storage unit, just to store the things that you currently do not need. At Storage Stockport, we offer free collection and removals and free van rental if you would prefer to drop your belongings off yourself. We even go as far as to offer you 50% off your first 10 weeks of storing with us.

Create An Illusion

Mirrors can work wonders when trying to make a small room look bigger. Mirrors can be installed on sliding door wardrobes or you can use one to cover an entire wall. Mirrors make great home accessories and are fantastic at reflecting natural light. During the day natural light and the sun comes through the windows and reflects off the mirrors making the room appear brighter and more prominent. 

Utilise Multifunctional Furniture

When you first move to a space, buying multifunctional furniture is one of your best bets to make a small space feel bigger. For example a bed or a sofa with pull-out storage. You can also downsize your furniture as a way to create more space. A way to do this, you can replace a traditional bed with a sofa bed. 

Hang Your Curtains As High As You Can

This is an ideal hack for making any room look bigger. Instead of hanging your curtains at the top of your window frame, hang them as high as you can, if you can then hang them up to the ceiling. This hack is especially helpful in smaller bedrooms.

Lighten Up Your Colour Scheme

You will be surprised by the difference that this tip makes. Darker colours tend to absorb the light rather than reflect it, which is why if you want to give a room the illusion of being bigger, then your best bet is to opt for lighter colours.
