If you are plagued with a small room and are ready to make that room feel and appear larger take a look at the tips below. De-clutter: Clutter can make any size room feel small. This goes for wall clutter, trinkets and ‘stuff’ clutter, furniture clutter, etc. Too much on the walls can make the room feel and look smaller. Go for a simpler approach and choose a focal wall, adding frames or artwork there. Everyone has items that they absolutely ‘have’ to display, but there comes a point where it’s too much, especially in a small room. If you can’t part with anything, rotate displaying these items with the seasons, changing them out when you change out your seasonal décor. Less Furniture: Take a look at the furniture you have in the room and decide whether it is all absolutely necessary. Could you do some cleaning and remove a dresser or cabinet? Or could you move those storage pieces into a closet so you aren’t losing the storage but creating more space in that room? Smaller dressers can fit quite nicely in typical 2 door closets, still leaving plenty of space for hanging clothes. If considering a living room, it’s best to have one larger couch than multiple pieces. Wall Storage & Hidden Storage: Removing storage pieces that sit on the ground and replacing with wall storage will add the perception of a bigger space. Wall storage such as shelves or small horizontal cabinets are an easy way to create more storage (moderation is key or it will also clutter the room). Would you rather place pieces of art on the walls? Try hidden storage pieces such as coffee tables and ottomans that open. This trick will also allow for you to remove cluttering pieces of small storage furniture. Light Colored Paint: It’s a known fact in the world of interior design that dark colors make a room feel and look smaller. If you are trying to make the room appear larger, choose a lighter colored paint. To take it a step further, choose cool lighter colors rather than warm tones. This could include a range of blues and greens and cool grays and whites. Light colored floors: Piggybacking on the point above, lighter colored floors are another way to create the perception of a larger room. Lighter floor colors such as oak or birch laminate or hardwood and lighter colored rugs such as tans, grays, and white/cream are all good options. There are many ways to create the perception of a larger room. Above are just a few. Be mindful of the type of room you are trying to make feel larger. You can try just one or try them all together but they are sure to do the trick.

If rain arrives on moving day, there is no need to panic. In fact, there are many quick, easy ways to protect your belongings against rain and ensure that these items can reach your new home without delay.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you protect your belongings during a rainy moving day.

1. Park the Moving Truck Close to Your Home

Ideally, you'll want to limit the distance between the moving truck and your house. This will enable you to prevent large amounts of rain from drenching your personal belongings.

You also should try to keep your home's walkways clear on moving day. Because if you're forced to deal with lots of walkway clutter, and lots of rain, it may be tough to carry your belongings from your home to your moving truck.

2. Lay Towels or Blankets Down in Your Home

Let's face it – a rainy moving day likely will cause you and your entire moving day team to walk in and out of your home with wet, muddy shoes. Fortunately, if you lay down towels or blankets in advance, you can reduce the risk of making your floors messy on moving day.

Remember, when it comes to moving, it is always better to err on the side of cause. If you have plenty of towels and blankets at your disposal, you should have no trouble keeping your home's floors clean as you move your belongings into a moving truck.

Don't forget to have extra towels available for your moving team too. That way, all members of your moving team can dry themselves off as needed.

3. Cover Your Furniture

Excess rain can quickly cause substantial damage to chairs, couches and other furniture. Thus, you'll want to cover these items before you move them from your house to your moving truck.

In most instances, covering furniture with moving pads and bubble wrap will help protect your furniture against water damage. Also, you should always ensure that there are no leaks inside of your moving truck to further reduce the risk of property damage due to rain.

If you're uncomfortable moving all of your belongings in the rain, it may be better to postpone your moving day. This will enable you to let the rainy weather pass and resume your move when improved weather conditions arrive.

Furthermore, if you need extra help on moving day, you may want to hire a professional moving company. This business employs friendly, professionally trained moving specialists who know how to move items in any weather, at any time.

Of course, if you need help finding a moving company, you can always contact a real estate agent for assistance. In addition to helping you buy or sell a residence, a real estate agent can help you get in touch with the top moving companies in your area.

Take the guesswork out of a rainy moving day – use the aforementioned tips, and you can streamline the process of transporting your belongings to your new house.
