Getting ready for a closet remodel is no small task. It can be difficult to decide on temporary rearrangements while you prep for your custom service. Here at More Space Place, we want this process to go as smoothly as possible so we’ve compiled a list of helpful tricks to prepare you for a remodel.
Start by Decluttering Your Clothing
Before you start putting all your clothes into bins or garment bags, make sure you really want to keep everything you own. A closet remodel is the perfect time to clean out items you don’t reach for or wear anymore. Lightly worn clothing can be hand-me-downs to friends and family or donation centers. If you declutter first, you may also be able to pack less and store less during the remodel, which may result in reduced packing supplies and storage facility costs.
Closet decluttering can be intense. For example, it can be hard to donate clothing that was expensive, but try to forget about all distractions and ask yourself: “do I like this item?”. If you can forget about what it cost, or the worries that might you need it in the future, you can evaluate the clothing much more simply and end up with a wearable closet. You shouldn’t be keeping clothes in your closet for the wrong reasons! Free yourself from any guilt, and if you don’t like the item anymore, create some real estate in your closet for something you love.
Plan Out The Clothes You Want to Wear During the Remodel
This might seem like an obvious tip but be sure to save some clothes from storage to wear while you wait for your dream closet to be built. A custom closet built by our More Space Place professionals can take anywhere from two days to three weeks or on rare occasions, longer. During this time, you want to be sure you have a variety of clothes that you can comfortably lounge and work in, depending on what your daily activities consist of. For shorter time periods you can choose to live out of your suitcase such as you might on short trips, but for longer builds, we recommend wardrobe moving boxes or an inexpensive but sturdy clothing rack.
Customizing your closet’s setup to best suit your needs could be the last step you need to stay on top of your organization. Don’t hesitate to reach out to More Space Place to receive a free consultation for a custom closet. Our design team at More Space Place Sarasota and Bradenton is happy to assist with bringing your visions to life. Contact us today!

With 2021 coming to a close, now is the time to invest in yourself, and to better yet, invest in your home space. When you first wake up the first place you go in your home is probably your closet. Although this is probably one of the most active areas in your home, you might not spend much time organizing it. This new year, give yourself the gift of a new custom closet, built to suit your needs. Check out the following design trends that we love.
Embrace Dark Wood
The new year is a great time to start fresh. How about introducing some new colors into your space? In 2021, there was a trend of modern-looking sleek closets that were mainly white. However in 2022, interior designers believe that dark wood will be very popular as it brings a sense of luxury, elegance, and glamour.
Lights, Camera, Action!
What better way to feel more confident about yourself and the clothes you wear than to put yourself in the best light possible? By installing lights in your closets you can save money and get a better idea of the pieces you already own. Reach out to More Space Place Sarasota to receive a free consultation and get more information on what customizable designs are possible in your space.
For someone who loves to have their wardrobe on display, a closet with open shelving is a great choice. This allows you to display shoes, handbags, jewelry, accessories, and clothes with style on custom-built shelves, hanging rods, or cubbies. Open shelving will also make it easier to find what you’re looking for when getting ready, so that you can always look effortlessly put-together.
The best way to add some fun and flair to your closet is to accessorize!
Below is a list of some of the accessories we can include in your custom closet design.
> Shoe racks
> Custom hangers for scarves, belts, bags, ties, and more.
> Pull out laundry hamper
> Multi-level hanging rods
> Jewelry drawers
> Pull-out ironing boards
> And more!
At More Space Place Sarasota, we know how important space and organization are to the flow and feel of your home. A cluttered space can feel cramped and unkept. We offer tips to help you declutter, while also offering space-saving devices to help you deal with the clutter you do have.

At More Space Place, we have a variety of options for custom closet design. In this article, we want to put a spotlight on two of our most popular styles: traditional and modern! Which style works best for you? Keep reading to find out.
Go for a modern closet style if…
You live in a modern or contemporary home. If your home was more recently built or was renovated to have a modern interior, then a modern closet style should work best for you. It will match the interior of your home and blend in seamlessly.
You are short on space. When designing a smaller closet, modern closets can feel less cluttered and more streamlined. With smooth, sleek lines, they often take up less space than traditional closets or give the appearance of doing so.
You like a minimalist aesthetic. Modern closets are sleek and sharp typically built with a neutral color palette. This makes them ideal for people who prefer a minimalist style for their home.
Go for a traditional closet style if…
You have a historic home. In older or historic homes, a modern closet can look out of place. For a closet that blends seamlessly into your home, opt for a traditional closet that can be built to match your rooms.
You like a closet that feels refined and elegant. There’s no denying that a traditional closet can give an air of elegance. With crown molding, real wood options, and subtle design touches, a traditional closet can add lots of refined personality to any room.
You enjoy vintage style. If you’re the type of person who prefers vintage furniture with lots of personality, then you may enjoy the look of a traditional closet more than a modern one.
Still Not Sure? Why Not Both!
While these two closets styles are on opposite sides of the design spectrum, there’s no reason that they can’t still meet in the middle! If you enjoy some design elements of traditional closets and others from a modern closet, our team of experts can work with you to find a closet design that incorporates both.

From luxurious walk-in closets to smart built-ins, the team at More Space Place are experts at combining function and style in closet design. Keep reading to learn how a closet can be used to enhance and compliment your home’s decor.
For someone who loves to have their wardrobe on display, a closet with open shelving is a great choice. Display your shoes, handbags, jewelry, accessories, and clothes on stylishly built shelves, hanging rods, or cubbies. Open shelving will also make it easier to find what you’re looking for when getting ready.
Modern & Clean-Cut
Enhance a modern or minimalist home by upgrading to a modern, sleek closet model. Crisp white or black shelving and a simple, functional design will make any room feel clean and modern. For an added touch of style, consider sliding glass doors.
If your personal style is more rustic and down-to-earth, we can design a closet perfect for you, too! A wood-built closet with a natural finish will provide warmth and a natural aesthetic. When designing for a rustic home, we love the appearance of dark-stained wood.
Crown molding can be used to add understated elegance to your closet – and your home. Many of our walk-in closets are designed with crown molding, but we can also incorporate this style element into any closet we design.
Colorful & Unique
Your closet doesn’t have to be neutral or fade into the background. Add a personal touch to your home with a closet painted in a vibrant shade such as green, royal blue, or even red. Consider what color tones would work best with your home and go from there! A colorful closet could be the perfect accent piece for your bedroom.

Your closet shouldn’t feel like a battlefield. However, it can be hard to break out of the struggle – you might feel resigned to your too-small or inefficient closet. The team at More Space Place can help! Below, we’ve compiled some signs that it’s time for a closet upgrade.
Your Closet is a Disaster Zone
The first and clearest sign that your closet isn’t meeting your needs is if it’s cluttered, messy, and disorganized. A closet that suits your needs and lifestyle should have a clear place for every part of your wardrobe. It should be easy to navigate and find exactly what you’re looking for.
You’ve Tried Reorganizing
Do you blame yourself for your messy closet? Have you tried every closet organization trick in the book? Maybe it’s time to accept that you’re not the problem – your closet is. When your closet is too small for your needs, or lacks the right kind of shelving and storage options, it makes it nearly impossible to stay organized.
Your Lifestyle Has Changed
Maybe your closet suited your lifestyle before, but has recently started falling short. There are plenty of reasons that someone might outgrow a closet – a new job required a new wardrobe, you’ve recently started sharing your closet with someone else, you’ve revamped your personal style, and more. Kids and teens can also frequently outgrow their closets, contributing to their struggles with staying organized.
Your Closet Stresses You Out.
Your closet should help you keep life organized – it should never be the cause of stress. However, this is often a problem that homeowners face. If you’re feeling stressed out by a lack of space or a disorganized closet, it might be time to upgrade.

Closet doors: an overlooked but essential component of good design for any closet or storage solution. Who knew there were so many varieties? Choosing the right style of door for your custom-built storage system will ensure you achieve both style and functionality. Keep reading for a rundown on closet doors!
If you’re looking to conserve floor space, sliding doors are an excellent choice. Since these doors don’t open outwards but rather side-to-side, they save you room when considering the space directly in front of your closet. Sliding doors also provide style and have a sleek appearance. Consider the metal and frosted glass doors above, which provide modern style and flair.
Much like sliding doors, bifold doors will save you space over more traditional options. Instead of opening outwards fully, bifold doors are made with two panels that fold together when opened. These practical doors can also be easier to operate for younger children than sliding doors. In the closet we designed above, the bifold doors fit snugly into the space between the closet and Murphy bed.
French doors are a timeless classic – it’s hard to go wrong with this option! French doors can involve traditional paneled designs, windows, and many other choices. They could be the perfect final touch for the walk-in closet you’ve always dreamed of. These doors require more room than sliding or bifold options, but are a great choice if you’re not concerned about space.
Barn doors offer a unique style touch that’s perfectly suited for both rustic and contemporary homes. These doors are typically installed along a track above and below the closet, which might entail additional space considerations. Our dedicated team would be happy to meet with you on-site and determine if barn doors are a good fit for your closet space!

Do you dream about the perfect walk-in closet? Rows of shoes, a stylish settee, the perfect storage for all your belongings. If your current closet is lacking, we can help your dreams come true! With a variety of different storage options, we can help you achieve the perfect walk-in closet.
The perfect walk-in closet isn’t complete without storage for all your accessories: shoes, jewelry, bags, belts, and more. We have a variety of different storage options for every part of your wardrobe. Showcase your shoes with a built-in shoe rack, display your bags in cubbies, use custom hangers for your belts and scarves, and keep your jewelry organized and protected in a velvet-lined jewelry drawer.
Custom Closet Systems
Of course, the main feature isn’t your accessories – it’s your clothes. We’ll work with you to find the perfect combination of storage options for your wardrobe. Customized hangers, adjustable shelves, cubbies, collapsible inserts, and more – we have it all. Visit our showroom or view our local projects online to see a few of our many storage options!
A Place to Relax
For a true boutique closet experience, a small seating area is ideal. If you have the space for a stylish armchair, bench, or settee, it will make all the difference. Not only will putting on shoes and trying on outfits be made easier, but it will also give your closet a true air of luxury.
Built-In Laundry Hamper
Nothing will ruin a carefully curated aesthetic like dirty laundry. Keep things neat and concealed with built-in space for laundry hampers! When it’s time to do laundry, you can easily pull out and carry away the hamper.
Finding Space for a Walk-In Closet
Do you want to upgrade from your regular closet to a walk-in? If your bedroom doesn’t have existing space for a walk-in closet, don’t worry. We can help you turn any additional space in your home into the walk-in closet you’ve always dreamed of. You might think that you’d be cutting down on the space available in your home, but that’s not the case at all. Having a room where you can neatly store all of your belongings will help you make the most of your space, keeping every other part of your home free from clutter. The best rooms for creating a walk-in tend to be adjacent or close to your bedroom; areas that naturally work together. However, there’s nothing wrong with dedicating a part of your basement or attic to a walk-in closet.

This custom walk-in master closet was built and installed for a homeowner in Palmetto, FL! White laminate cases wrap around this entire closet to create a versatile and generous amount of storage space. The center island includes drawers with Satin Nickel bar pulls. We also included some convenient closet accessories: tilt-out black fabric laundry hampers, custom grey felt jewelry inserts, and chrome slide-out belt hooks and valet rods. What more could you need or want from a master-closet?
Our custom closets allow you to personalize more than just your unique storage needs – you also have control over many design elements. From traditional to modern, we have stylish finishes to fit every preference. Learn more about our closet finish options below!
A natural wood finish is one of our most popular options. Timeless, classic, and elegant, natural wood will fit with just about any home decor style: rustic, contemporary, mid-century, and more. Our wood finishes come in a variety of different colors. Darker woods have a luxurious and refined appearance, while lighter woods are friendly and welcoming. For a classic approach, we also have a variety of mid-toned shades.
A white-finished custom closet is another favorite for our customers. A white-painted closet is a classic look, while still appearing modern. Bright, clean, and airy, the color white can also make your closet feel bigger and brighter. It also allows your wardrobe to stand out against the closet, making it easy to find what you’re looking for.
Glass accents are perfect for creating a closet that’s modern and sleek. Consider frosted glass sliding doors, which provide both style and privacy. We can also install frosted glass shelving. Many of our custom closets are used for display purposes, which makes glass doors for cabinets essential. Glass allows light to filter in, making your closet feel more open and less dark. The glass we use for our custom closets is durable and shatter-resistant.
We can also give your closet a colorful finish! Perfect for adults and kids alike, a colorful closet finish creates a cheerful and fun vibe. Consider energetic red, soft pink, royal blue, creative purple, and more!
Our closets can be equipped with numerous metal accents and accessories, including door handles, baskets, dividers, and more. Including brass, gold, copper, and silver, metal accents are modern and exceptionally durable.
