Your custom closet could free up space for new creative projects that you never had room for with your old closet. Instead of merely hanging your clothes back up and shutting those closet doors, consider a few of the ideas below from More Space Place Sarasota to get creative with your new custom closets.

Create a Dressing Room

If the space allows, consider adding a few features in your walk-in closet to make it a special dressing room rather than just a clothes storage space. Add a fancy rug, a cozy chair, and perhaps a lighting feature like a small chandelier or a modern floor lamp to create a stylish feel. Don’t forget to bring in a full-length mirror as a finishing touch – this could even be attached to the back of your closet door!

Add a Pop of Color

Even if you don’t end up spending a lot of time in your closet, it’s important not to neglect this space. Instead of leaving the walls a boring white, pick up some adhesive wallpaper to create a feature wall. Bring in bright baskets or drawers to add a pop of color to your shelves. If you have a shared closet, consider color-coordinating spaces with paint or curtains.

Morning Station

Your closet can be a cozy place to get ready in the mornings, so why not set up a handy station? If the space allows, you can add the appropriate items to make your morning routine a breeze. Bring in a small vanity, equipped with a mirror and lighting for makeup, or acquire a small espresso stand and adorn it with your favorite brewer, cream, and sweetener. Whatever your morning calls for, a custom closet can be designed to allow you plenty of space to create the perfect morning station in your Sarasota home.

Curtains and Cushion Seating

If a good DIY project is up your alley, then you may consider making curtains or cushions for your new closets. Sew curtains out of any fabric you like, or pick up some premade ones at the store. Hang your curtains on suspension rods to enclose certain shelves and spaces. If you have a bench area or often find yourself perched on top of a set of drawers, sew up a seat cushion to add comfort and style to the space!

Don’t Let Clutter Take Over Your Garage or Workshop


Garage storage systems are a relatively recent invention, especially when compared with the cars, lawn equipment, tools, and other household goods that garages are meant to contain. If garage storage systems had been available a long time ago, like the ones offered today by More Space Place®, the state of this garage might have been prevented!

It’s never too late to save any garage, of course. Garage storage systems can be designed and built for brand-new residential construction, but they also can be retrofitted into older, existing garages. In the extreme case of this garage, it’s easy to see that some decisions first need to be made to identify and dispose of junk, and sell useful but no-longer-needed items. Once those things are done, hope does indeed remain for problem garages like this one.

A Place for Everything, and Everything in its Place
How does a garage or workshop deteriorate to such a cluttered, disorganized state? For one thing, it happens over time – neglect and procrastination like this take most of us years to achieve! The messiness really is just the result of lacking the right storage in your garage to organize the things that belong there. Garage storage systems are the way to solve this problem.

Garages typically become the catch-all for a crazy mix of all sorts of household items. From Christmas decorations to lawn chemicals, hand tools to hardware, and power equipment to sporting goods, a neglected garage can begin to look more like a Wal-Mart store after an earthquake. It doesn’t have to be this way. Garage storage systems by More Space Place create the space and the place for everything your garage contains.

Garage Storage Systems Can Even Make Space for…
Getting organized in the garage or workshop the “More Space Place way” always starts with custom design – these garages are not created from do-it-yourself kits. Cabinets and wall panels are measured, built, and professionally installed according to the needs and nuances of each garage’s construction. From there, storage accessories of every shape, style, and purpose imaginable are added to these garage storage systems, always with the homeowner’s specific needs in mind.

The end result of an organized garage, designed and installed by More Space Place, is one where you can find the things you’ve stored, move around without tripping, and get indoor or outdoor projects started. You will reclaim useful space in your home that you may have given up on.

And let’s not forget the main reason homes have garages in the first place: parking! Join the multitudes of More Space Place customers who have used garage storage systems to recover storage space for their cars. In addition to the security and protection from the elements you gain for your automobiles, you’ll enjoy the pleasure and convenience that goes along with garage parking. You’re going to like it!
