When people think of garden sheds, we often think of forgotten outbuildings stuffed to the brim with broken gardening equipment and old camping chairs. Many of us have them but don’t actually use them for anything other than extra storage space. But you don’t have to be an expert gardener to make your shed a central feature of your yard. Outdoor storage sheds can be used for lots of different things, so you should kill two birds with one stone: clean out your shed! Not only will you have then cleared out equipment you don’t use, you’ll have created a space that you can use as something else that’s much more useful. Here are some ideas to inspire you to get rid of your broken plant pots and use your shed to its full potential.
Avoid expensive membership fees and use your shed to house your gym equipment. You can have everything set up permanently and then there’s no excuse to exercise when you have a gym in the back garden. It’s out of the house so it means you’ll have the motivation to get up and go, however it’s close enough not to cause too much hassle!
Many people are becoming self-employed, but often have to spend money renting out an office as there’s not enough room at home to create one. However, using a shed as an office is a great way to get space outside of your home where you can work in peace – with the benefit of being able to have lunch at home and be on time for dinner.
Using your shed as a games room is a great way to entertain guests. You could do it the old fashioned way and have a dart board, pool table and maybe even some board games. If gaming is your preference, you could dedicate your shed to your console without having to worry about fighting over the TV!
Yoga is a great way to unwind and exercise, especially with our busy lives. If you’re already a yoga enthusiast then creating your own private meditation area will be a great use of your shed space. Creating your own ambiance will help you to relax and you can choose your own music and lighting to enable you to focus.
Here are just a few ideas to help you make the most out of your garden shed. Depending on your hobbies and interests, there are plenty of different options for your garden shed – options that are much more interesting than storing old plant pots!
