Is your lawn cluttered with garden equipment, kids’ toys, spare parts and other stuff? Storage space at capacity inside your home? It’s time to think about outdoor storage.

Outdoor Storage Sheds

Is your lawn looking a bit cluttered with garden equipment, kids’ toys, car spare parts and other stuff?  Maybe you think the house space is getting too scarce with sentimental junk like your kid’s first bike? It is time to think of outdoor storage.  A shed creates space that didn’t exist and adds value to your home. There is also the aesthetic value of a well-built shed standing in your backyard. You no longer must worry about your equipment gathering rust in the open, or the wheelie bin getting visited by an assortment of wildlife. All-in-all an outdoor shed is an advantage whichever way you look at it. But what kind of shed do you need?  Here are the questions to help you land this answer;


What is the shed’s use?

Outdoor sheds are commonly used to store tools and hardware, swimming pool equipment, gardening equipment, outdoor sports gear and other stuff that would be awkward to keep in the house. The first thing then would be to look at your storage needs; how big are the objects you need to store? But then you also must consider the convenience of accessing the stored stuff when you need it. Will you have to wade through garden equipment to get to the kid’s bike, or do you want separate sheds for different stuff? You also must look at your future storage needs. Do you plan on buying a bigger lawnmower or more pool equipment?

An outdoor shed can also serve as a working space; put up a working bench and some tools and you have yourself a quasi-workshop. This would be a smart utilisation of space. These answers will help you assess the size of shed to put up.


How much space is available?

Your backyard’s space will be the biggest factor in determining the shed size you can put up. you can only get imaginative with the space to work with.  The shed should not take up all the outdoor space you have, but it should not be small to make it useless. If you have a large backyard, your options are plenty. The most obvious option would be to put up a large multipurpose shed that can serve as a garage, a workshop or an equipment store.


What materials and colours?

You want a shed that adds aesthetic value. You can find plenty of storage sheds online options in details and extras. Ideally, the outdoor shed should complement the style and design of the main house in terms of colour, roofing and at times height.

For a workshop style shed, you should think of ventilation and lighting because you don’t want to be spending time in the dark, breathing in petrol fumes. Plan for a window, or large double sliding door that can bring as much light and air as possible.  The door size should be large enough to accommodate the largest equipment you have.

Why should I consider extra-large storage sheds?

Each individual will have their own set of needs and intended uses for these high-quality units and there is no blanket answer to cover all their possible uses. What we can say with certainty is: the engineering, construction, and potential customisations are such that, if enough space is available to house one of our extra-large storage sheds, there are virtually no limits to its uses.


How do I determine the right size for my outdoor storage shed?

The easiest way to determine whether you need extra large storage sheds or something more manageable is to ask yourself the following questions:

– What is the maximum size storage shed the available land could accommodate?

– What activities or uses do I have in mind for this particular storage shed?

– Will those change over time? Remember, this unit is going to last for decades. 

– Would those activities be facilitated or hampered by having more room? Remember, if this is a space you will need to keep cool in the summer or warm in the winter, the larger it is, the more expensive this will be to achieve. 

– Is cost a contributing factor in the decision?

– If so, what is the largest unit I can afford?
