Now that it’s officially summer it’s time to get serious about following through with your summer project plans. Whether those projects consist of cleaning out your closets, reorganizing your pantry, or cleaning up your computer’s hard drive, you’ll feel much better once they’re done. If you aren’t sure what project to take on this summer, consider doing a complete garage reorganization. For many homeowners in the Sarasota area, the garage is often an overlooked part of the home. Here at More Space Place, we can help you achieve a garage organization and storage system that works perfectly for your needs.

Purge & Clean

The first step in reorganizing your garage is to clean everything out. You likely have a lot of things in there you no longer use or need. Go through all your belongings and separate them into various collections of what you want to keep, sell, donate, and throw out. Once you have your items narrowed down, you will have an idea of what will be going back into your garage, which will help dictate what your custom garage storage system will look like.

Design Your Storage System

At More Space Place Sarasota, we offer free in-home consultations where we come out and measure your space, as well as discuss various storage options and strategies with you. A custom solution results in the best possible fit every time because it’s designed and built around your specific needs and lifestyle. You’ll have many different components to choose from, including built-in shelving, slat walls, workbenches, cabinetry, hooks, and more!

Garage Sale

You’ll likely have things to get rid of once you’ve cleaned out your garage. The summer is a perfect time to have a garage sale. You can also make it a fun family event by getting everyone involved, which will also make it less work for you. If you have kids, consider helping them set up a lemonade stand to accompany the garage sale. Beat the heat by getting an early start. Whatever doesn’t sell you can donate to a local charity.

Once you clean and organize your garage, you’ll be so happy you did! Contact More Space Place Sarasota today to schedule a free in-home consultation. We’ll help you build the ideal storage solution for your garage that’s designed around your needs.

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.


Cramped Closets

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.

Tiny Pantry

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.

Chaotic Garage

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!
