Ways to Use a Shed Blog (1)

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. So whether you’re planning to stay put or sell, it may be worth it to add one to your property. This is especially true right now when we are spending so much time at home! Here are 10 creative ways you can use your shed.

1. Garden Shed

Keep it simple and use your shed how 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.

2. Art Studio

Sheds make for a great workspace because they’re separate from the house, which may make it easier to focus in peace and quiet.

3. The “She” Shed

The female version of a man cave may be just what you need right now! The purpose is to create a pleasant space to relax and unwind in. Even better, moms can make it a “kid-free zone” for some extra peace!

4. Home Gym

Get back into the gym without having to leave your house! A home gym is one of the most sought after home additions rights now, and a shed is a perfect way to add on a home gym even when you don’t have much space left in your home.

5. The Getaway Shed

Why not turn your shed into a livable space for guests or family staycations? Create a cozy sleeping space and you’ll have your very own adorable cottage!

6. Play Space

Turn your shed into an outdoor play space for the kids. Just add a table and chairs, a chalkboard, and a few toys. Not only will they love it, but it will be easy for you to keep an eye on them!

7. A Green House

Create a beautiful greenhouse to grow plants in all year long. Learn how to build your own here.

8. Game Room

Use your shed as a space to hang out with the family or entertain guests in by turning it into a game room. Add a few comfy bean bag chairs, games, and a music system and you’re ready to have some fun!

9. Outdoor Bar

Take the entertaining room to the next level by setting up a minibar and fridge in your shed!

10. Home Office

Much like a home gym, a home office is one of the most sought after spaces in the home right now! By putting it outside, you can create a quiet space away from the house to get your work done. All you need is a table and chairs, some storage space, and cute decor.
