Are you looking to read more in 2022? Is having a home library a dream of yours? More Space Place can make it a reality! With creative, customizable storage solutions, we can help you create the home library you’ve always wanted. Keep reading to learn more!

Storage 

When you are building a home library there are many things to consider. For every person, the quantity, size, and style needs of your shelves will vary. Consider the number of books you require storage for. Will you need a few shelves along the wall, or does your collection require wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling shelving? Additionally, you should consider the kind of books you need storage for. Larger, heavier, books will require larger shelves, while rare books might need glass cases for protection. You should also consider what order you want your books to be in. If you want to order them by the author make sure the shelves can accommodate different size books. 

Spacing

If you’re worried that your home doesn’t have enough space for a library think again! At More Space Place, our experts are amazing at transforming any space with multipurpose storage solutions. One easy solution is converting your guest bedroom into a home library. We have numerous Murphy bed styles that come equipped with built-in shelves. We can also create libraries that double as a stylish home office or study.

Finding The Right Furniture

Furniture is another major component of building the perfect library. A built-in desk might be the perfect addition to your library, giving you space to study and read. Or, consider making space for a cozy armchair or sofa. We can help you create a built-in and ultra-cozy reading nook, the perfect place to curl up with a good novel.

The holiday season is upon us, and for many children, that means that Santa Claus is on his way. Toys and Christmas tend to go hand-in-hand, so many households find themselves trying to make space for new toys before Christmas morning. Taking the time to declutter your child’s room before the holidays hit can help to free up space, keep their rooms tidy and allow you to donate usable items to another family that may be in need. Here are three tips from More Space Place Sarasota that can help you painlessly declutter your child’s room.

Get Rid of Toys That Are Broken or Missing Pieces

The very first place that you want to start as you work to declutter your child’s room before Christmas is to immediately discard any toys, books or games that are broken, missing pieces or are in good enough condition to be donated. It may take time to go through games, but ensuring every toy has all of the pieces is important. 

Donate Items That Are Not Age Appropriate

The next thing that you will want to do as you work to declutter your child’s room before Christmas is to donate items that are not age-appropriate. Your pre-teen may have loved Candy Land when they were in kindergarten, but it may not be anything they use anymore. Taking items that are not age-appropriate and donating them helps you to give to others in the community while also making space for the age-appropriate items your child will be getting this holiday season. 

Ask Your Children What They Do Not Use

The last tip for decluttering old toys, games and books from a child’s room is to simply ask the child what they no longer play with or use. Just like adults, a child’s interests and likes can change. They may have loved one toy last year, but they may no longer be interested in it this year. Simply ask a child if there is anything they want to donate to another child and see what items they offer up on their own.

An organized home looks better than a messy home – that’s pretty clear. However, did you know that the right organization and storage hacks can make your home look even better? Take it from More Space Place, your storage and closet experts. Keep reading to discover some of our organization tips & tricks for creating a stylish home. 

Use Smart Open Shelving

Open shelving is more than just a convenient storage option – it can be used to strategically add flair to your home! In the kitchen, open shelving can be used to artfully display and provide easy access to spices and dry ingredients. In the living room, use open shelving for books, pictures, and even folded blankets. Open shelving can be used to showcase your personality. 

Don’t Over-Stuff Storage

An overflowing shelf, coat hook, or shoe rack can interrupt the visual joy of an otherwise organized home. When organizing, we know the temptation to just shove everything wherever it fits. Resist! It’s worth the time to correctly organize and store your belongings. Not only does it improve the appearance of your home, but it will also save you from lost items. 

Custom Built-In Furniture

Your sense of style is unique – why would your furniture be any different? Instead of browsing endlessly for the perfect pre-made storage, opt for a custom-made built-in designed to your exact specifications. A built-in media center, closet, or home office from More Space Place will be customized to your exact style preferences and needs. It will integrate seamlessly into your home, because it’s made just for you. 

Start With An Organized Entryway

If there’s any place you should focus your attention on first when organizing, it’s your entryway. Not only is this area of your home crucial for making a good first impression, but an organized entryway will benefit the rest of your home. There are a variety of different ways that you can keep your entryway organized. A custom-built entryway storage system will easily answer all your needs. A small table, coat hooks, wall-mounted shelving, and a small table could also help you keep shoes, jackets, keys, and bags all in the right place – not scattered throughout your home.

An organized home tends to look better than a messy one – but what about the unseen benefits? An organized lifestyle can go beyond aesthetic enjoyment. At More Space Place, we understand the numerous health benefits of organized living! Keep reading to learn more.

Reduced Stress

There have been numerous studies done on the negative health impact of stress: heart disease, digestive problems, obesity, a weaker immune system, and more. It’s also pretty clear that a disorganized home causes stress and strife. Lost items, arguments with family members, and dissatisfaction in your home’s appearance: a disorganized home is a recipe for high stress levels.

Productivity

Staying organized can help you stay productive. Work becomes easier when you don’t have to scramble to find the right pen or charger. A well-organized home also prevents procrastination – how many of us have used “reorganizing” as a way to avoid doing actual work?

Healthy Eating

An organized pantry can make healthy eating easier. If your pantry is cluttered with junk food, if healthy choices stay hidden, it’s hard to make good choices – especially when you’re tired and hungry. On the other hand, if your pantry is well-organized, with easy-to-find healthy choices and good ingredients, it’s easier to make healthy choices.

Better Sleep

Even subconsciously, a messy home can affect us. A disorganized room gets in the way of our peace of mind, and the stress of a mess might keep you up at night. Keeping your home organized will help you feel more peaceful, and the energy of your home will be more conducive for relaxation. Having an organized bedroom and bathroom will also keep your bedtime routine streamlined.
