Garden sheds are great multi purpose garden buildings (regardless whether you bought a quality Sheds Direct shed) – here’s some ways you can customize these most amazing of spaces.
Garden Sheds – buy large hooks and hangers
Large hooks and hangers are useful when it comes to organising your odd assortment of possessions inside your quality garden sheds. Hang almost anything on these hooks; from loose wires to coiled-up hoses, tools to garden chairs, bikes (!) to ladders.
Large hangers means you can hang almost all of your long-handled gardening tools, result? A garden shed which is nicely organised.
It goes without saying that hanging tools, wires and ropes protects you from tripping and thus prevents potential injuries.
Garden sheds accessories can be found at your nearest garden center (alas not Sheds Direct – who only make great quality garden sheds) – just don’t be tempted to buy one of their paper thin sheds (or you will get a visit from Sheds Direct builder to show you the error of your ways!).

Metal Shelving for Garden Sheds
Have you any idea how much extra storage space you might gain in your garden shed? A good way to increase the storage capacity of your garden sheds is to install several light weight metal shelves.
These metal shelves take up next to no space and yet significantly increase your storage options. Buying adjustable metal shelves are a plus point, giving you more flexibility.
After installing and placing all the relevant boxes, tools, screws, nails, fishing gear, bike parts in its place, you might be surprised by the amount of space you’ve suddenly gained in your quality garden shed.
Stack up – Buy baskets or bins to increase garden shed space
There are always awkward tools and equipment like pots lying around inside your garden sheds that can be easily stacked up in a corner. Just buy the right baskets with lids, or bins and you are good to go.
Stacking up is also a good way of checking the amount of stuff you already have, the amount that has been depleted and the amount that you need more. It can serve like your own balance sheet.
You can purchase metal or plastic baskets and bins – the latter being by far the cheaper. These come in many different shapes and sizes and can be bought easily.
Buy a Potting Bench
If you love planting and looking for a great space to start growing your favourite plants, a potting bench is a must. We advise you to clear up some space for it in your garden sheds. Watching new life sprout within your shed allows you to really connect with nature. Just remember to (carefully) water these new shoots!
Decorate your Garden Sheds-Buy something colourful
Nobody likes to work in a dull and gloomy environment. Even plants love airy and full of light garden sheds.
Buy some colourful equipment like chalkboards, calendars, pots, stands, journals, hangings that will generally give a vibrant and colourful outlook to your shed. Colourful garden sheds make happy places. You could go one step further – and buy a quality garden shed from Sheds Direct –such as a garden workshop or beautiful dutch barn. The result is a great space that you can decorate as you see fit – with lots of space for your hobbies and friends!

Anyway we digress, to have a quality garden shed or garden workshop that gives you the years of enjoyment, all you need is a desire and a few tips to keep the dream alive. First off you will need a Garden Shed or garden workshop….
The 3 Tips To Getting Best Garden Workshop In The Yard
- 1. First of all, you need to make up your mind on how you would make use of the available space within the garden to create the great garden shed that gives you the best use of space and ultimately the pleasure you want from your shed consider the location.Try not to obstruct existing buildings, borders and boundaries while building the garden shed, you will need to clearly and carefully make measurements of the area that you want to position the shed and create the garden building in the dimensions you planned.
- 2. You have to make up your mind to add greenhouse, a bar, seating or work space to your garden workshop. If you are cultivating plants, you will have to ensure to make use of the portion that has access to direct sunlight. Greenhouse gains a lot of positive impact when it gets good quantity of sunlight. The efficiency of this greenhouse is dependent on the amount of sunlight that hits the roof of the building. The greater the quantity and quality of direct sun, the greater the efficiency you are going to have here too.Security can also be a concern, especially if you are storing valuable items, inventions or tools, make sure the design includes a sturdy door and walls.
- 3. Making sure you have the right quality construction, sturdy roof and flooring can never be under valued. Imagine storing items easily damaged by the great British weather and along comes a strong wind that takes the roof off your shed, exposing the stored items and creating damage. Many people also use a shed to store garden equipment, motor cycles and quad bikes etc. Having a sturdy floor ensures the shed can take the weight.
There are really many other things you have to put into consideration when constructing your garden shed. These considerations should be based on what you have in mind.
Ensure you have a great plan and try to make the best decision on what you will have.
Finally, you have to take into consideration some things like how much the shed will impact on to the surrounding where you grow your plants when they are built close to the garden.
