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.

When designing a custom storage solution for your home, there are a variety of options to try out. Want to learn more about our various options and what might be the best fit for your needs? Look no further!
Shelving is a tried-and-true solution for a variety of storage woes. If you’re the type of person who prefers folded clothing over hanging storage or prefer to see all your belongings on display, then this storage option is for you!
Cabinetry is another flexible storage solution that can be incorporated into any area of your home, from kitchen to bedroom. Consider cabinetry for items that don’t need to be on display or might otherwise make a room feel cluttered.
Drawers are an excellent option for smaller items, like jewelry or office supplies. They can be seamlessly integrated with many different closet, pantry, and storage designs.
Hanging storage is a flexible option for custom closets, but can also be incorporated in different ways for other storage systems. Hangings rods, valet rods, and hook-based storage help keep items separated and easy to access.

Not all of us have the luxury of a walk-in closet. However, reach in closets can still be a great addition to any home. Transform your storage space with a well-organized and well-utilized reach in closet.
What is a Reach In Closet?
First: what exactly is a reach in closet? A reach in closet is any closet that you cannot walk into. All contents are within arm’s reach. Whether you already have this type of closet or are looking to add more storage space to your home, reach in closets can be convenient and provide plenty of room for your items.
Next, learn more about some smart design elements that can make a reach-in closet functional and organized.
Varied Storage Options
Varied storage options are an important component of any well-designed closet. Different parts of your wardrobe have different storage requirements, after all. At More Space Place, our closets can be designed with storage options of any variety and customized quantity, including drawers, hanging storage, shelving, and more.
Custom Closet Accessories
Custom closet accessories provide specialized storage for your wardrobe. This helps you make the most out of limited closet space. Consider custom shoe racks, cubbies, jewelry drawers, and custom hanging storage for ties, belts, and scarves.
Maximize Hanger Space
Rather than having one hanging rod and nothing underneath, maximize the storage capacity of your closet by incorporating under-hanger storage or staggered hanging rods. Hanging storage of varying heights can effectively double the hanging space in your closet by giving you two hanging rods for items. A dresser or cabinet underneath your hangers also provides valuable storage.
Create an Effective Reach-In Closet With More Space Place
A reach-in closet is an excellent way to maximize storage when you don’t have space for a walk-in closet. They can be built in an existing closet space or built along any exterior wall. Contact the experts at More Space Place to get started!
Spring is a time to start fresh and organize your home. If you’re in a spring-cleaning kind of mood, these home organization projects are perfect for you! Tackling one area of your home at a time makes these home improvement projects more manageable.
Get Your Home Office in Order
Many people have been working from home more often these days – and that makes having an organized, efficient home office even more important. We recommend starting big-picture: the overall layout of your home office. It can be a refreshing change to rearrange the layout of your desk, computer, and chair. This can make your office feel like a breath of fresh air. Next, get into your various drawers, cabinets, and files. Throw out unnecessary clutter and finally tackle and organize miscellaneous papers and files. If you worry about potentially throwing away something you’ll later need, it’s always smart to back up copies on your computer.
Refresh Your Home Decor
Spring cleaning doesn’t always have to be about throwing things away. Reorganizing can also be about redecorating! Give your home a fresh feel by refreshing your home decor. The addition of pictures, plants, and more can help your home feel friendlier.
Clear Out Kitchen Clutter
Your kitchen is an essential part of regular seasonal cleaning. The longer this part of the home is neglected, the more moldy surprises you might find. Get ahead of things and take the time to organize your kitchen and clear out any expired food or long-gone leftovers from your pantry and fridge. If dealing with your kitchen feels unbearable, a custom-built storage system could help you take back control. Contact us today to learn more about our custom-built kitchen storage solutions!
Improve Your Bedroom
When getting your home in order, the bedroom often becomes a neglected spot. We sometimes focus too much on common areas of the home rather than private places. Take time to beautify your bedroom with new decor and put everything in its place. Rearranging bedroom furniture to enhance Feng Shui can also be a great way to improve your mood and mindset.
Get Organized With More Space Place
The team at More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte is here to help you refresh your home for spring. With custom closets, home office furniture, pantries, and more, we can help you Make Room for Life. Call us today to get started with a free design consultation.

A closet can be more than a functional part of your home – it can be used to add style, too! 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.
Your Next Steps: Upgrade Your Closet With More Space Place
If the above signs resonate with you, reach out to our team today – we’ll get you started on the path to a better, stress-free closet experience. We’ll work with you to design a custom closet that perfectly meets your needs, with unique storage options and accessories for every part of your wardrobe. Get in touch with our team today!

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.

Most of us have, at some point, thought to ourselves: I don’t have enough space! Whether you feel that way about your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or entire home, the thought has probably crossed your mind more than once. At More Space Place Sarasota, we’re experts at creating storage solutions for every aspect of life. Below, we’ve compiled our favorite ideas for dealing with cramped closets, tiny pantries, too-small bedrooms, and more.
With our help, you won’t need a walk-in closet to feel like you have plenty of space. With small closets, having the right storage for every item is crucial – from shoes, pants, jewelry, and more. We have custom closet accessories for all of those, and more! Your closet might also benefit from custom hanging rods, built-in laundry hampers, and custom shelving.
Your pantry might be running out of room, especially if you live in a multi-person household. To keep your pantry from feeling cluttered, good organization is important. We can help you do that with custom cabinets, spice racks, baskets, pull-out drawers, and adjustable shelves.
Your garage can become a catch-all for all the items you don’t have any other place for. That’s a recipe for chaos and clutter! To make your garage feel bigger, get started on sorting through the items you have stored there. You’ll probably find that you can simply get rid of most of them. For the rest, we can help you design a custom storage solution with cabinets, a workbench, and shelving. For a smaller garage, wall-mounted shelves are a great choice!
Small Spare Bedrooms
If you struggle with spare bedrooms feeling too small, a Murphy bed could be an excellent solution. Our Murphy beds easily fold up and come in a variety of designs. You can even transform guests bedrooms into a home office or den when not in use!
