How to Find The Best Garden Shed Designs

download-16There are so many garden shed designs available, so how can you the perfect one to
suit your needs? You first have to decide what your shed is for. For tool storage, or garden supplies? To keep overflow out of sight? Or a space for you to work on projects? And how about size? Will a small storage shed be enough, or do you need something large?

Here are some easy tips to find the best garden shed design.

  • You must decide if you want to build your own shed or buy a ready-built shed. Obviously a ready-built shed is faster but also more expensive. And, it limits you to existing designs and functions. The beauty of using your own garden shed plan is that you can control size, design and function.
  • Work out what you need to store in your shed and what you want to use the space for. Do not skimp on size; you will only regret it later. The secret to a great shed is to choose a really well-designed garden shed plan. But however good your plan is, expect challenges and problems. If you do, the job will be easier.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to build your shed and do not rush it. This way, you are less likely to make mistakes.
  • Make a list of all the tools, parts and equipment you need to complete your project. Measure twice, cut ONCE.
  • Remember, follow the shed instructions always.
  • Many garden shed designs show wide doorways, either one large door, but usually two. This makes it great to move items such as mowers in and out. Apart from wide doors, many designs show cupolas and windows for better light and ventilation.
  • Garden sheds usually incorporate shelves for storing pots, garden and yard tools. You can even have potting benches. Extras such as drawers and bins for storage of small hand tools, gloves etc are really useful.

Remember garden shed designs do not have to be plain or boring. You can customize the look of your shed by using color and adding a little gingerbread. Make it your unique and custom shed! It’s totally up to you.
