decluttering storage solutions

decluttering storage solutionsStaying organized is a common New Year’s resolution. Even if your goal is something else, organizing your home can help you keep it! Below, our team of organization experts has shared how organizing your home can help you stay true to your 2020 resolution.

Eating Healthier

There are a variety of ways that an organized home can benefit your goal to have healthier habits in 2020. Let’s start with the kitchen! Re-organizing your kitchen with healthy food in mind will help you stick to a new diet. Place junk food in hard-to-reach places, and give healthy food – like fruit, granola bars, and whole-grain snacks – center-stage in your pantry. Having an organized kitchen can also inspire you to cook more. Consider a spice rack, which will make home-cooked meals more fun and delicious. Putting pots, pans, and cooking utensils in easy-to-find places will also help meal prep feel less stressful. 

Being More Active

If your goal is to be more active, then having a neat and organized home can help with that, too! First, of course, cleaning requires more movement than simply sitting still. A neat home can also benefit your mood and energy levels, helping you feel less down in the dumps.

Being More Productive

As mentioned above, an organized home will improve mental clarity. This is especially true for the areas of your home that you typically work from – whether that’s your home office, den, living room, or even bedroom. When everything is cluttered and messy, your mind feels the same way. In a clean environment, with everything you need to be productive right on hand, it’s much easier to get in the groove of work.

Learn A New Skill

How can keeping a clean home help you learn a new skill? The process of cleaning will help you clear space in your home – space that you can dedicate to other activities. Clearing and sorting your belongings will also help you re-learn what’s important in your life. You might even discover some forgotten craft materials, notebooks, or instruments that you had purchased for the same resolution at the beginning of last year.

An organized home looks better than a messy home – that’s pretty clear. However, did you know that the right organization and storage hacks can make your home look even better? Take it from More Space Place, your storage and closet experts. Keep reading to discover some of our organization tips & tricks for creating a stylish home. 

Use Smart Open Shelving

Open shelving is more than just a convenient storage option – it can be used to strategically add flair to your home! In the kitchen, open shelving can be used to artfully display and provide easy access to spices and dry ingredients. In the living room, use open shelving for books, pictures, and even folded blankets. Open shelving can be used to showcase your personality. 

Don’t Over-Stuff Storage

An overflowing shelf, coat hook, or shoe rack can interrupt the visual joy of an otherwise organized home. When organizing, we know the temptation to just shove everything wherever it fits. Resist! It’s worth the time to correctly organize and store your belongings. Not only does it improve the appearance of your home, but it will also save you from lost items. 

Custom Built-In Furniture

Your sense of style is unique – why would your furniture be any different? Instead of browsing endlessly for the perfect pre-made storage, opt for a custom-made built-in designed to your exact specifications. A built-in media center, closet, or home office from More Space Place will be customized to your exact style preferences and needs. It will integrate seamlessly into your home, because it’s made just for you. 

Start With An Organized Entryway

If there’s any place you should focus your attention on first when organizing, it’s your entryway. Not only is this area of your home crucial for making a good first impression, but an organized entryway will benefit the rest of your home. There are a variety of different ways that you can keep your entryway organized. A custom-built entryway storage system will easily answer all your needs. A small table, coat hooks, wall-mounted shelving, and a small table could also help you keep shoes, jackets, keys, and bags all in the right place – not scattered throughout your home.

This custom home office was built for a homeowner in Sun City Center! Sleek and contemporary, these cabinets are composed of  white-chocolate melamine. The versatile drawers, desks, and cabinets provide all the storage and working space you need. We took advantage of the natural light in the room by building a window seat. This home office also features a drop-down table and LED lighting system.

If you ever work from home, you likely have some kind of home office set up. Does that space suit your needs, though? If you find your home office lacks storage space or if you struggle to focus, it might be time to upgrade to a custom home office. Below, we’ve compiled some of the many elements that can be personalized to create your perfect home office.

Custom Desk

The desk is typically the center of any home office: the place where stuff gets done. Each person has distinct needs when it comes to what style, size, and type of desk work best. For example, if you’re an avid crafter, you might need a desk that has a lot of practical space to work and is accompanied by additional storage. If you typically use your laptop, you still might require additional space for an extra screen.

What kind of storage space do you wish your current desk included? How much space do you need? Do you prefer a standing or sitting desk, or both? Whatever your preferences are, we can create the perfect desk for your office. 

Storage Space

Your storage needs will vary depending on many different factors – your profession, your hobbies, and what you plan to use your home office for. We can design and install the perfect amount of storage for your unique needs, with customizable shelves, drawers, filing cabinets, and more. We can create an office with enough book storage to double as a home library, a built-in Murphy bed that allows your home office to be converted into a guest bedroom, storage that works for both your job and your hobby, or a simple and sleek storage system that fits seamlessly in your space.

Personalized Appearance

Our style options are as endless and customizable as our storage options. Whether you prefer a timeless dark wood finish, bright white cabinetry, or sleek glass accents, we’ve got you covered. You can also personalize the layout of your desk and storage systems, as well as the lighting we install in your home office. We can work with your space to ensure that your office fits beautifully and naturally into your home.

study space organization Sarasota

Sometimes, after a long day at school, it can be difficult to convince your kids to do their homework. Getting your kids to sit down and focus can feel next to impossible. But just as adults rely on an organized office space for productive work, so do the busy minds of children! With a custom study space, you can help your student feel organized, focused, and inspired when it’s time to open those books. Our design experts at More Space Place Sarasota are here to share our top tips and tricks for customizing the perfect study space below.  

Clutter-Free Storage

study space SarasotaYour young scholar might love collecting colorful school supplies, but all of those rogue pencils and papers might simply drive you crazy. Plus, your kids are likely to involve you in the search when they can’t find something! Creating dedicated school supply storage is the perfect solution. With elements like open shelving, pull out drawers, and filing cabinets, everything will have a place. Not only will this save both of you the hassle of digging through cluttered craft drawers, but it will give your kid an extra dose of inspiration. All of their materials are right in front of them and at their fingertips for their next creative masterpiece.

Distraction-Free Zone

It’s pretty obvious that studying in front of the tv with cartoons on isn’t the most productive way to study. The lack of distraction in a dedicated study space makes it all the more valuable. You can craft a big open desk, hide any distracting chords, and even make space for a computer when needed. Your child will know it is time to focus on studies when they sit down here. With less distractions, they will learn more efficiently and probably finish their work quicker, making more time for the other fun things they have on their mind!

Inspiration Driven Space

For every student, young and old, there comes a time when they simply do not want to do their homework. We understand. That’s why it’s important to consider the unique personality and learning habits of your child. Do they learn better with bright lights? Dimmer lights? Do they like to surround themselves with bright colors or relaxing ones? Our custom home offices can be crafted exactly to your student’s personality so that the space truly feels like their own. For this reason, we love the idea of including your student in on the design process of their custom study space!

Multipurpose Study Space

murphy bed study space SarasotaWhile you might love the idea of giving your young student their personal study space at home, it can be hard to find the room to do so. Fortunately, we have the perfect solution! Transform your child’s room into a spacious place to study with a custom Murphy bed. With a custom-made wall bed, your child can have a built-in desk, plenty of storage, and a folding bed. Our Murphy beds are easy to use, ensuring that your child can set their bed up by themselves. They’re also ultra-comfortable, with a built-in high-quality mattress.

murphy bed and desk - Sarasota

murphy bed and desk - SarasotaAt More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, we’re all about creating beautiful spaces that work to solve storage and organizational needs in homes across the Sun Coast. A Murphy bed and desk combo is a prime example of one of these space-saving solutions, and it’s one that’s as versatile as they come. In this post, we will explore just how versatile one of these combinations is and how it could benefit your home.

Creating a Multipurpose Room

One of the greatest things about a Murphy bed and desk combo is that it can be used to create a multifunctional space in your home. If you don’t have multiple spare rooms to devote to serving various purposes, such as one for a guest room and one for a home office, how about combining the two into one efficient room? A Murphy bed alone is flexible and offers many benefits. It can fold up off the floor when not in use, which opens up more floor space for other things. Adding a desk to your wall bed brings the unit’s utility to the next level. You’ll have a comfortable bed to offer overnight guests while also maintaining a productive home office space for your daily use.

Customized to Your Style and Storage Needs

Just like all of the storage solutions we offer, our Murphy beds and desk units are customizable to suit your personal style and the aesthetic of your home. We offer a variety of colors and finishes, as well as storage add-ons and hardware for you to choose from. For example, this award-winning design features a nautical themed home office with a Murphy bed attached. The white laminate finish combined with custom color match paint and traditional crown moulding resulted in a one-of-a-kind project customized for this Sarasota condo on the bay. When designing your unit, you can choose from a lot of different styles of Murphy beds to properly suit your storage needs and work with the configuration of your space.

We have three convenient showrooms in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Port Charlotte where you can see some of our floor models on display. We look forward to working with you!
