If you are thinking of buying a shed for your garden, you should keep in mind that there are many models, different sizes and types of materials. Choosing your garden shed based on your needs is worth the time and consideration to make the most of this extra storage space.
The first things that comes to mind when we think of a garden shed are the storage of tools: to store the lawn mower machine, the pruning scissors, the rest of the artificial turf roll, ect. However, a garden shed has more functionalities apart from storage. Below, we briefly tell you some of the uses you can give to these sheds that can extend our garage space, and help us garden, among other things.
Organize your garden space: As we mentioned before, this is the most common function to use a shed to store our garden tools and accessories in it. Normally, we also make a spot for our toolbox and drill, that is if you do not have a garage or have used up all the space in the garage already.
Make extra room: How nice does it feel to have everything tidy? The garden shed can be a parent’s best ally. Extra toys and seasonal items, like holiday decorations make a great home in a shed. Sheds also make a fantastic storage area for bikes, especially in the winter when they need a little protection.
Buy the playhouse of your children’s dreams: If you have young children, you can give the shed different function than a storage shed. Can you imagine a games room just for them and their little friends? You can put a rug in the middle and shelves with toys. Or even a bedside table with chairs or a sofa bed.
At this point you have already seen that there are many factors that we can consider when we choose an ideal shed. If you still have doubts on which is the right choice for you, try considering the material. If you are unsure between metal or wood, consider that wood is often more aesthetically pleasing and can serve better for decoration but also requires more care. In short, if you choose a wooden shed or sheds, you should keep in mind that the better you maintain it, it can last for many years.
The question of flooring. Some sheds come with a floor and some sit on the ground and you can add your own foundation or flooring for it. Your decision may depend on the use you want or location; you may find it more convenient to provide your own flooring or base. A good base will give greater stability and waterproofness to your shed. You can make a concrete floor, wood... or even tiles. If your shed is in direct contact with your garden lawn, a good option is to place a thick canvas that covers the floor and make sure it is well insulated.
In our section of wooden sheds, you will find models of different sizes and materials. Find wooden sheds with doors and some even with wooden shelves and asphalt ceilings. As far as metal sheds are concerned, most models come with sliding doors to optimize the space. Some come with vents so you can regulate airflow. Although the most common color is green, you will also find metal garden sheds of other colors such as ochre and different shades of gray. Choose the one that best suits you both aesthetically and functionally.
