One of the best things about a storage shed is its versatility. It’s a blank canvas that can be anything you want. For most people, getting a shed comes down to five general reasons. We’ll go over them one by one here.


Storage is the No. 1 reason that people buy a storage shed. The need for additional storage generally occurs once the garage gets too full to hold cars, and people get sick of parking in their driveway or on the street. In addition to “stuff,” a garage shed can store vehicles themselves or small-engine equipment like lawnmowers, snowblowers, ATVs, golf carts, pressure washers, and snowmobiles. Garden tools and equipment are another common storage need that requires someone to purchase a shed.


In addition to storing tools, a storage shed can serve as a workshop if you’re handy. Have a workbench installed in your storage shed and have everything you need in one place. An advantage of having a separate location away from the house is that it’s an isolated space that no one else in the family will go near, which helps as far as safety goes. It also provides space and solitude to allow you to concentrate on the task at hand, and if it’s a longer-term project, you can work as you go without having to pick things up each night.

Exploring Hobbies

If you’re a budding musician or artist, a detached shed is a perfect place to enjoy these hobbies. A shed makes an ideal location for an at-home gym for fitness enthusiasts. And if you’re a gamer, you can create your perfect game room, whether it’s for video games or more physical equipment like tables, arcade games, or even a pinball machine!

Fortress of Solitude

You’ve probably heard of man caves, and she sheds, and that’s precisely what a shed can be for you if you need that place to escape. You can also style it like a guest bedroom—add a bed, a couch, TV, or even a refrigerator to give yourself all the comforts of home when you need to get away from things for a while.

Pet Hangout

A storage shed can be a perfect home away from home for your pet. They are especially popular as dog houses, as they can provide shelter for the animal plus allow it to head out into the yard to do its business or get some exercise. A shed can also serve as a chicken coop if you’re on a farm.
