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.

Getting organized is a classic resolution for the New Year, which is right around the corner! Closets, in particular, are spaces we tend to cram full of belongings throughout the seasons. After all, they are the perfect place to hide away unsightly clutter. At More Space Place Sarasota, we think your closet is an especially easy starting point for your more organized year! If you find your closet filled to the brim and seemingly impossible to sift through, a custom closet might help you stay sorted beyond your January 1st decluttering spree. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the ways a custom closet can help you stay organized.
Simply not having the space to organize your belongings can be a frustrating experience. When you don’t have the means to be organized, it’s entirely understandable why clutter may get a little out of hand. A custom closet transforms an ordinary four-walled closet into an expansive, efficient, storage solution. Now with the right tools, organizing will be a breeze!
Custom Closet Accessories
Instead of searching through a pile of shoes for your favorite pair, all of your shoes could be openly displayed on a shoe rack. Rather than rushing in the morning to assemble a put-together outfit, you can quickly glance through a closet customized for your lifestyle and wardrobe.
We love the idea of laying outfits ahead of time on a bench or hanging pieces together on a metal rod. Also, never fiddle with a tangled necklace again when you store them in jewelry drawers. With these timesavers, you can spend more time on your other resolutions, like going for a run or reading a new book!
With extra hanging rods, more shelves, and more drawers, you simply have more storage to put things away. A great organization tip is to store away your seasonal clothing. The holidays won’t be around for another year, so your holiday sweaters don’t need to take up extra space! Instead, make room for the new items you are bound to gather over the next year.
Surprisingly, your floor is another space guaranteed to benefit from a custom closet! We all have that family member who tends to toss dirty clothes on the ground. With a custom closet that has a built-in space for laundry bins, keeping dirty clothes off the ground is even easier.

Achieving an organized lifestyle often stems from having an organized and orderly home. If you feel relaxed and put together in your own space, the feeling can filter out into other areas of your everyday life. At More Space Place Sarasota, we are big believers in the power of a custom closet solution. This storage method is the most efficient and effective way to maximize all your available space, and it’s completely designed around your individual needs. Here we’ll explore three ways a custom closet can improve your life.
A Streamlined Morning Routine
One way a custom closet can help improve your life is by streamlining your morning routine. For many Sarasota residents, the morning is the most hectic time of day. Between getting the kids ready for school, getting ready for work, and organizing your list of errands, any way you can get relief in the morning is helpful. A custom closet can make getting ready in the morning a lot easier. Designing a personalized storage system for your wardrobe and accessories will help you keep track of everything and ensure you can find what you need when you need it. Implement an adjustable shelving system that can modify as your needs change. Belt racks, jewelry drawers and dividers, and built-in drawers and cabinetry all work together to create an efficient and organized closet system to streamline your morning routine.
Minimize Cleaning Time
Another benefit of a custom closet is it can minimize the time it takes you to clean and pick up your space. When everything has a designated place, putting laundry away, hanging your coats, and tidying up takes less time. Spending less time cleaning leaves more time for the things you want to be doing. In addition to making it easy to clean, a custom closet also helps your bedroom maintain its organization. With easy access to storage, keeping your space tidy takes minimal effort. It becomes more convenient and less of a chore.
Save You Money
A third way in which a custom closet will improve your life, one that’s typically overlooked, is it can help save you money over time. With more space for your clothes to hang and fold, your belongings will stay wrinkle-free and in better shape for longer. This means fewer trips to the dry cleaners and fewer replacement purchases. It will keep everything either in view or easy to find, which will also prevent duplicate purchases.
The three points mentioned above are not the only ways a custom closet can improve your life.
