“I have a problem finding places to store things or I really need to organize…” does that sound like you at all?

Making the most out of the space you have is important whether your house is small or large.

Organizing is about decluttering and arranging your home or office space in more efficient and beneficial ways to you. So stop storing everything in your garage or piling up your clothes and shoes and make a resolution, yes, and a mid-year resolution, to get everything in order. It will make you feel so much better, I can promise you that.

More Space Place has attractive, affordable and functional solutions that will help you get organized and create more space within your home without the hassle of a home remodel, a costly addition or an outside storage unit.

More Space Place’s array of products include custom closets, home office furniture, and organizational systems, Murphy wall beds, garage systems, and kitchen organization solutions.

Starting off as a single retail location in the early 1980’s, More Space Place has grown to become a nationally recognized and trusted company that continues to expand due to their high level of attentive customer service and quality organizational products. Today, the company has over 28 nationwide stores that are locally owned and operated by community members.

Clark Williams and Bob Schmidt are the owners of the three Tampa Bay area showrooms and Design Centers, located in Palm Harbor on US 19 N., St Petersburg on Gandy Blvd. and Lutz on State Rd. 54. “We have seen some very innovative designs created when a client comes in with an idea and our designers work with them to make it a reality,” says Williams. “It makes the business both fun and exciting.”

Williams recalls that 20 years ago there were very limited choices of furniture and closet solutions and very few options for finishes and materials. “More Space Place now proudly offers the largest selection of wall bed styles available, and in addition, a massive line of complimenting space saving and organizational furniture. In addition, we are one of the only companies offering the ‘Invisa-line’ boring system. This new technology makes the adjustment holes in the furniture for shelf adjustment almost 60% smaller than what others offer,” says Williams.

Murphy Beds Can Make Dual Purpose Rooms

As America’s #1 Murphy bed retailer, the professional designers at More Space Place can assist you in transforming a spare room or office into a comfortable guest room with a fantastic, durable and high-quality wall bed. Today’s wall beds provide the same comfort as standard beds and also have the choices of a firm to extra plush mattresses.

“We recently purchased a new model home and we wanted to designate one room as a guest bedroom/office. My husband recommended a Murphy bed to save on space. I must admit I was dead-set against it relying solely on my very dated recollection of no style, no comfort and something my parents would have considered,” says recent customer Karen Q. “Luckily for me, my husband, A.K.A ‘Mr. Research’ did all the legwork and visited one of the More Space Place showrooms. Quality, style, comfort, and option-upon-option are the orders of the day and I am happy to admit I was dead wrong. The people at More Space Place went beyond in customer service, suggestions, and execution. Their installers were amazing and we are 100% satisfied. The guest room/office looks spectacular and I get compliments on it on a regular basis!”

I must say, after reading so many incredible reviews and seeing their showroom, I am personally considering adding one of these Murphy beds to my own small home office, because of those “unexpected visitors” that end up crashing on my brand new, light-colored couches. I will definitely keep you updated on my own Murphy bed in a follow-up story.

Custom Closet Systems Cut Through the Clutter

Do not just daydream about your ideal closet! The local experts at More Space Place can build it for you. Their closet makeovers can consist of wall-hung closet systems, floor-based closet systems, or even a combination of both.

Custom closet systems from More Space Place are designed with your wardrobe in mind, so you will not continue to waste another minute frantically searching for your favorite shoes, shirts, or belt, just to fail. Your new closet would be organized to make room for all the clothes and accessories you already have, with ample space for the new must-haves. More Space Place professional designers will help you create your design in your finish choice to make a one-of-a-kind highly functional closet to fit your needs. One that will save you time and money.

Recent and very happy client, Nicole B. says, “Thank you More Space Place for my custom closets. I walked in just to see what the whole process would be like and everything went so smooth. I wanted someone to be able to look at my closets with all my stuff and tell me what I would need. That is exactly what More Space Place did AND had some other helpful ideas. In the process, they came out to my house, measured and then sent me a digital proof for approval. After I gave the ok, a few days later was the install. A professional installer came out to do the job. He did a great job. He took out the old clothes racks and patched the holes. In addition, he was very considerate of my home; he laid down blankets to protect my floors. I could not be happier with this whole experience and would recommend More Space Place to everyone! In the end, I also received two follow up calls to make sure everything was in order. Now THAT’S customer service.”


More Space Place offers complimentary in-home design consultations as well as three spectacular showrooms where clients can go check out the vast options of style and finishes and see the quality of their products. “When someone visits one of our three Showroom Design Centers, they’ll find trained and experienced professionals who will introduce them to a full array of wall beds and cabinet options,” says Williams. “They will also find complete furniture collections for beautifully functional offices, media rooms, closets, garages, pantries, laundry rooms and so much more.”

Selecting furniture is a very important decision and one that requires time, energy and a lot of “touching,” yes… touching. I have personally bought a few pieces of furniture online after reading great reviews from other clients, only to be completely disappointed after receiving my product, because the quality of the materials was not what I was expecting. Having the opportunity to go into a store, to see the quality and TOUCH and FEEL what you are looking for cannot be beaten. Williams says, “We believe that if people have the opportunity to see all the various options, they get a better understanding that this can be an incredible creative experience instead of just hanging some rods and shelves. This process also makes the purchasing decision easier. Since there are so many colors, finishes and materials available, seeing these in person also ensures they’ll find the best combination of styles and finishes to match the aesthetics of their home and lifestyle.”

The More Space Place creative experience is further enhanced with a three-dimensional software program that allows clients to see how various furniture designs would look in their home. No more having to imagine how it would all look like once put together! Thanks to this incredible technology you can actually see how it would all fit in your space and if it matches what you had in mind. “We have found with this visual aid it is much easier for our clients and the designer to work together in order to create the perfect design that is specifically created to meet the needs and desires of the client,” says Williams.
