A backyard shed provides excellent storage, but it can hold much more than just a lawnmower and some gardening tools. These durable structures are gaining in popularity as increasing numbers of homeowners realize the many possibilities for customization. 

One of the first things to do before building sheds is to determine what you need to store. Sketch out a floor plan that addresses your storage requirements. What sort of weather protection do you need? 

If you are building a garden shed, is it going to be in a shaded area, or is it most convenient to construct a structure that can accommodate a loft?

These questions will help you decide how much space to allocate to each area. If you are planning a loft, remember to allow enough headroom. In addition to a dropped ceiling, you may also want to consider fitting in some softly soothing lighting to make it feel like a little oasis in your backyard.

This idea may have gotten you excited, but once the adrenaline dies, you might be wondering if this is a good idea. If you are asking that question, you should continue reading this article.

Shed for the Party Animal

You might be one of those people who believe in the saying, “you only live once,” so you spend a lot of time entertaining friends in your home. In this case, you might be asking how sheds can improve your lifestyle. 

You love it when all of your friends are here, so why not set up a structure to make your guests feel welcome? If you fancy yourself as an amateur mixologist, install a bar by building a ledge below the window of your shed for guests to rest drinks on. Then stock your salon with bar stools, a mini-fridge, and maybe even a portable sink. Or, if you are a master behind the grill, set up an indoor grill station with food prep and storage areas.

Shed for the Sentimentalist

You have difficulty getting rid of things since you know you might need them one day. For example, leftover supplies from home improvement projects, items that need to be reupholstered, boxes of your parent’s old photos, or old seasonal gear that has not been used since you moved to a milder climate. However, keeping the items isn’t enough; you want to ensure they are safe. Sheds will provide such protection. 

Additional space will separate the items into categories and organize things. It will make finding things effortless and help reduce losing or damaging them. Sheds are also an attractive structure that adds to your home’s overall appeal.

Sheds are also easy to build, and the plans shown here can be modified for your specific needs. Also, the cost is minimal, making it a do-it-yourself project that will add aesthetic value to your house and provide extra space for recreation, hobbies, and seasonal items.
