Whether you need to store excess items and tools or you simply want a spare area where you can work on outdoor project, a garden shed is likely the storage solution you need.  Garden shed designs are not only reasonably priced, but easy to construct.

Here are some helpful guidelines to assist you in determining which garden shed design is right for you.  First you must decide if you want to purchase a pre-made shed or if you want to build your own.  Buying a pre-made shed is fast and saves you the headache and hassle of building, but it is also more expensive.  With a pre-made shed you are limited to existing choices on design and functionality, but if you choose to construct you own shed, you can have control over these things.

Next, determine what you will store in the shed and what activities or functions you’d also like to use the space for.  You need to make sure you choose a garden shed design that provides an appropriate and acceptable amount of storage pace given its intended purpose.

The secret to achieve a successful garden shed design is in the planning.  As with any project, be aware problems and challenges can arise.  Be prepared and open to these things and it will all go much more smoothly.   Never rush because this can cause mistakes and more problems.  Keep a concise plan and stick to it.  Measure twice, cut once. Have a list of all the parts and tools and equipment you will need to complete the project.

Common garden shed designs today have wide doorways, whether they utilize one large door or more commonly two.  Having a wide entry point makes it easy to push large equipment like tillers and mowers in and out of the shed.  Aside from wide doors, garden sheds often have cupolas and windows for better ventilation and light.  If there are large windows you normally do not need to add electrical lights, which is another cost.  Garden sheds also usually have shelves for storing pots and other garden and yard tools and accessories.  Sometimes they even include indoor potting benches.  Drawers and bins where you can keep small hand tools, gloves and other things are also common in garden sheds.

Remember that your garden shed design does not have to be plain or boring. There are many ways to customize the look of your shed.  Color is one of the quickest and easiest ways to change the feel of a shed.  You can add other decorations and accessories to change the feel and look of your shed.  It’s all up to you.  There is a lot to consider when buying or building a garden shed, but with a little time and effort you will soon have the garden shed of your dreams.
