Gardening is one of the most fun activities that you can do as a homeowner, but it does require some extra storage for your tools and equipment. A garden shed is the perfect place to keep all of your gardening supplies organized and out of sight of guests. You may want to use your garden shed for other purposes as well, especially if you’re looking for a way to make more room in your home.
how to use your garden shed
A garden shed can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Storage. You can store gardening supplies, pool equipment and other items in your garden shed. It’s also a great place to keep your tools organized so they are easy to find.
- A laundry room or mudroom. If you have an unfinished basement with no windows, this is the perfect place for a laundry room or mudroom that has plenty of natural light from outside but privacy from inside the house. The door can be left open when not in use so pets and children are safe from any potential dangers inside the shed (like chemicals).* A greenhouse or sunroom addition to your house.* A man-cave or she-shed (if you don’t want it attached). Most people think of using their sheds as a place where they go just after work but there are many other uses such as having an office space set up with all necessary furniture including computer desk chair desks lamps etc 😉
First off, you should have a good amount of storage space.
- How much do you need? A general guideline is that the shed’s floor area should be about 1/2 the size of your home’s total square footage. For example, if your house is 2,000 square feet, then a 1,000-square-foot shed would be ideal.
- Where will all this stuff go? Different items need to be stored in different places: tools in one corner; fertilizer and hoses by the door; bikes by the window (if there is one). Use hooks and shelving units to divide up areas for maximum utility and organization.
- You’re going to want easy access so that when something needs replacing or moving around it can be done quickly—even if it’s just for a few seconds at first!
In addition to being a good place to do laundry, a garden shed is also the perfect place to store your laundry equipment. Your washer and dryer can be kept in the shed rather than taking up precious space in your home.
If you are like most people, you probably do not want a bunch of unsightly wires running through your backyard. This can be avoided by installing an indoor clothesline into your garden shed. The clothesline allows you to hang up wet towels or clothing so that they can dry quickly before putting them away in the laundry room where they belong!
If you’re looking for some space to grow vegetables or herbs, a greenhouse is the perfect choice. The main use of a greenhouse is to keep plants warm and healthy—it can be used to grow all types of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs.
You can also use greenhouses as a place to keep plants that need warmth during the winter months. If you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing during winter months, then this is an excellent way of ensuring that your garden will still have access to sunshine even when there isn’t enough sunlight outside your home.
She-Shed or Man-Cave
If you’re a man, and you want somewhere to go to relax, feel free to call it a man-cave. If you’re a woman, feel free to call it a she-shed.
She-sheds are often in the backyard and can be used as an office or quiet space away from the rest of your family. Man-caves are usually in basements, garages, or spare rooms—basically any place that isn’t normally considered “feminine” but is still part of the house (like the garage).
The workshop is a popular garden shed option, as it’s perfect for storing tools and equipment that you need to keep handy.
Garden sheds can provide a safe place to store your lawn mower, as well as all of your other gardening tools and equipment. You can also use them to store hardwood (such as wood for making furniture) or garden decorations that you don’t need often but want to keep safe from the weather.
If you’re looking to get into shape and you have the space, a home gym can be a great way to save money on gym membership fees and maintain your fitness routine. But before you go out and buy all the equipment, there are some things that need to be considered:
- Do you have enough room? A lot of people tend to think that their backyards are spacious enough for a home gym, but if it’s not well-lit or sheltered from the wind, it could be more dangerous than beneficial. Make sure that whatever area you choose is safe from falling objects or weather conditions!
- Are there places nearby where I can run/bike/swim? If running trails aren’t accessible by foot within walking distance of your house (or bike or swimming pool), then it might not make sense for your family members who want an exercise routine outside their doorsteps.
A guest house is a small space that can be used for guests. It can be used for a variety of purposes, such as a place to sleep, a place to work, or a place to relax. Guest houses are often built at the end of the driveway or in the backyard so that they are easily accessible from the main house and provide privacy for visitors.
garden sheds are versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes.
The possibilities are endless! Here are just a few ways you can use your new garden shed:
- Laundry room or bathroom
- She-shed or man-cave (no judgment here)
- Workshop/studio space for artists, crafters, and DIYers
We hope this blog has inspired you to get creative with your garden shed. They’re versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
