Shed Design: A Worthy Transformation

10 Creative Ways to Use your Shed

When you hear the word ‘shed,’ you tend to picture a small rustic garden shed where the lawnmower is stored. However, sheds have progressed a lot recently. Quality sheds are an excellent addition to any home and whether you’re planning to stay put or sell, it may be worth it to add one to your property. Here are some of the ways a shed can be used.

Garden Shed

Keep it simple and use your shed for what it was originally intended: A storage place for tools and gardening supplies. Step it up a notch by making your garden shed both attractive and functional. Start on the outside by giving it a fresh coat of paint and planting around the border. On the inside, create an organized space with plenty of hooks, shelves and drawers.
