Using and Incorporating an Outdoor Shed into Your Backyard {Guest Post)

Not many houses have garages anymore. As our blocks get smaller (and so do our gardens) there just isn’t the room for a huge garage, but just because we don’t have room for a garage, doesn’t mean we can’t fit in a little extra storage. Sheds have always been a popular option for homeowners, they’re affordable, space efficient, easy to assemble and can be applied to a whole bunch of uses. No matter the size or shape of your yard, there is likely to be a shed that is the right size and style for your yard.

Now onto style, sheds are not only a great storage option, and a great option for extra space too, but they can actually give your yard or outside area a special touch that nobody else has. Timber sheds in particular, like the ones from SteelChief, are a great option for those of you who love to decorate. Being timber, they are very easy to paint and customise, you can even add windows, a porch; you can customise it to match your homes decor. Perhaps you have a pool, you can convert a larger shed into a fully furnished poolside retreat, complete with tropical garden bed.

Or perhaps you need an outside artist studio, you can choose to install a shed that is big enough to use as a creative space, comfortably furnished on the inside, shielded from the elements. Or utilise it for one of it’s most popular uses, a tool shed or working shed. In this case a metal or timber version will work just fine as it’s purpose is to house activities that are meant to be performed outside.
With some careful landscape design, your garden shed will soon become an outstanding feature of your backyard, as well as being a fully functioning space for a variety of needs.

Other uses for an outdoor shed can include using them as a garage; if you have the room but don’t want to commit to a large solid garage construction, a shed can be the perfect alternative because you can get them in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Particularly if you are interested in simply housing your cars away from the elements.

There are plenty of beautiful shed designs to get you inspired about decorating your new garden shed. From keeping it simple as a car storage option, or dressing it up and turning it into a quaint and delightful garden feature, the options for your new shed are endless.

  1. I love my shed! The prior owner put it in and it is a perfect match to the house! Very cute.

  2. Yes it has been a compliment to the house that's why it looks so amazing. If i will be the owner i will not sell this shed at any cost.
