As sunny days and eased restrictions on gathering with friends and family to engage in outdoor activities approach, changing seasons provide an ideal opportunity to declutter and organize your spare room, garage, or storage shed. More Space Place Sarasota has expert ready to help you keep your spaces organized!
Despite having garages, basements, and attics in their homes, 68 percent of all self-storage customers rent storage units for their belongings. Using home, garage and storage shed organization items such as labeled storage racks and shelves with slide-in bins, color-coded by season will help eliminate clutter and reduce your monthly budget by at least $360 per year, allowing you to spend that money on gasoline, state and national park memberships and fishing, hunting and boating licenses instead.
Consulting with an organization expert at More Space Place Sarasota allows you to customize your storage needs. Your individualized organization plan might include loft platforms and hooks to hang bicycles, kayaks, canoes, and camping equipment in the unused space near the ceiling of your garage instead of using the entire garage as a storage unit.
If your home suffers from CHAOS (can’t have anyone over syndrome) or you always find yourself with at least one room devoted to storing seasonal items, adding a loft with pull-down stairs to your garage or storage shed could double or triple your available storage space.
In addition to keeping the available floor space clear for the family car, lawn care equipment, and items too heavy or bulky to raise into the loft, pull-down stairs prevent passers-by from seeing what you have stored in your garage or storage shed. This discourages thieves and prevents your homeowner’s insurance rates from rising whenever theft forces you to make a claim.
Furthermore, keeping the sides of the garage or shed clear creates safe aisles, preventing slip and fall accidents and reducing combustibility, a vital consideration in areas prone to fire. The professional organizing consultants at Closets and Storage Concepts will help you design a pegboard system to keep your hand and power tools out of those aisles and off the floor.
Floor-to-ceiling wall storage further increases the efficient use of available space.Add color-coded slide-out bins to shelving units and larger toys and craft items will cease making the room look like a tornado just passed through your home. Moreover, by labeling the bins with photos of the items inside, even toddlers can return their toys to the correct bin when finished playing.

If your home doesn’t have a spacious laundry room, we can help! With smart storage solutions and custom designs, our team can make a cramped room feel just right. Keep reading to discover some design ideas & custom storage options for smaller laundry rooms.
Choose a Light Color Scheme
A smart design trick for making small rooms feel larger is selecting a light color scheme. Light colors create a bright, airy mood, improve visibility, and reflect light better. White wallpaper and white cabinetry will help your laundry room feel more open and less cramped.
Install Cabinets Above Your Washer & Dryer
If you lack available floor space, go up! We can install custom-built cabinets above your washer and dryer. These shelves provide additional storage for laundry room necessities and other supplies. If you have a stacked washer and dryer in your laundry room, no problem! Narrow cabinetry built alongside your appliances will also provide storage while saving floor space.
Think About Alternate Appliance Layouts
Thinking carefully about the way you’ve organized your washer and dryer can help you rethink your space in creative ways. For example, if you’ve always stacked your appliances, consider arranging them side-by-side. While this will take up more floor space, it also provides you with additional room for folding clothes.
Use a Slatwall System
Make full use of every part of your laundry room – even the walls – with a slatwall system! This can be installed on any wall and offers extra storage without taking up any space. Perfect for keeping track of miscellaneous tools, items, and more.
Try a Fold-Out Ironing Board
A fold-out ironing board is a great addition to any laundry room. This ironing board can be built into your laundry room as part of an accompanying storage system or independently. It folds up and out of the way when not in use, and can easily be folded down when needed. Instead of a larder and unwieldy traditional ironing board, this laundry room insert is compact and convenient.
Install Built-In Clothing Racks
Finding space to hang clothes in a small laundry room can be frustrating! Without adequate room, clothes can also take too long to dry. One simple solution is to install built-in clothing racks within your laundry room. These racks can be placed near the ceiling and mounted on walls or cabinets. They take up less space than a rolling clothing rack while also integrating seamlessly into the room.

You’ve probably heard the term Feng Shui before. This ancient Chinese practices of optimizing the chi, or energy flow of a space, has been used for centuries. Good Feng Shui is believed to improve health and positive energy – and after you try out these essential tips, you’ll believe it, too!
Neutral and peaceful color palettes work well for creating great Feng Shui. Consider light colors such as cream, beige, and tan. Soothing blues and greens are also great choices. Avoid high-energy colors such as red and orange. Highly saturated colors also aren’t ideal – they put a strain on your eyes and your mind.
Think About Lighting
The lighting of your bedroom affects mood more than you realize. We recommend taking advantage of natural lighting as much as possible. Don’t block windows off with furniture, and use sheer, gauzy curtains. Natural lighting is less harsh than most artificial lights and will help you stay in sync with the outside world. When choosing lamps and lights, opt for ones that cast a warmer glow and can be dimmed.
There’s an optimal layout for your bedroom furniture that will improve its Feng Shui. Symmetry is important, so consider placing your bed in the center of the room with two matching nightstands. Artwork arranged symmetrically is also beneficial to the energy flow of your bedroom. One important factor to take into account is that your bed should not be placed in the direct line of a door or window.
With clothes on the floor and miscellaneous items scattered on cabinets, it’s hard to find that elusive sense of peace and tranquility. Clear your bedroom of items that don’t belong there and make sure everything has a place.

In many residences across the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte areas, closets can get overlooked when cleaning up your home. “Out of sight, out of mind” may be the motto these homeowners use when talking about the state of their closets. However, having efficient and effective closet storage and organization throughout your home can help improve the overall feel of the house. Here we’ll explore ways you can organize some of your main storage spaces to help create a more serene and clutter-free home environment.
The primary closet for many people is the bedroom closet. Whether you have a small reach-in closet or a spacious walk-in, keeping your personal closet organized, although often a challenge, can help influence the organization of the rest of the closets throughout your home. Starting here will help you get into the flow. First, clean everything out of your closet. Go through your items and make a serious effort to get rid of everything you no longer want or need. If this is something you’ve been putting off doing for a while, you’ll most likely be surprised at how much stuff you’ve accumulated over time. Once you’ve pared down your belongings, you’ll have a better idea of what kind of storage you need for your remaining items. To take your organization one step further, consider installing a custom closet system in your Sarasota home. With custom-built shelving, hanging systems, and drawers made specifically for your space, your closet will be maximized for your own personal utility.
Linen & Utility Closet
Often in a constant state of disarray, the linen or utility closet can be an intimidating one to tackle. Maybe you have struggled with figuring out how to keep your bed sheets and towels from getting balled up and shoved to the back. Or perhaps you feel you don’t have enough storage space for your things. The simple addition of some shelving dividers can turn your linen closet from a chaotic mess to a nicely organized storage area. Dividing your closet into smaller sections makes it easier to keep like items together. It can also help linens stay folded and neatly stacked. If your utility closet doesn’t meet your storage needs, perhaps a custom closet design is the solution you’ve been looking for.
