6 Creative Uses for Outdoor Sheds
Storage sheds have come a long way from the days of only being thought of as boring old utility buildings for storing the lawn mower, garden tools, and Christmas decorations. There are many uses for outdoor sheds, far beyond the scope of just storage. Whether it's an artist's studio, home office, playhouse, or game room, modern sheds can be transformed into just about anything you can dream up!
Many people choose to invest in a shed as an extension of their home and as a way to add functional living space for a variety of uses. Truly, the possibilities are endless! with endless possibilities. Now the hard part is how to decide what you would want your outdoor room to become. Below are just a few of the many create uses for outdoor sheds.
Many don’t have room within their homes to create the bar of their dreams, so why not create one outdoors? A great way to soak in the summer nights and to be unique is having your own outdoor bar in your backyard. All you have to do is set up a bar counter, stools, and stock it with all your favorite drinks and voilà, your shed is now an outdoor pub! You could even put a TV inside to enjoy all your favorite sports teams.
Craft rooms within the house always tend to look a tad bit disastrous, especially when you are in the middle of a project. Also, often there isn’t a designated room for crafts so either the kitchen table becomes the craft area or you have to settle for a small corner of a room that becomes easily cluttered. With an outdoor shed, you can finally have the space you and your crafts deserve! You’ll enjoy room to spread out to complete your projects, a quiet area for you to focus, and room to organize and store supplies.
Tired of driving way out of the way to go to the gym because there isn’t enough room in your house for a couple of pieces of equipment? Why not turn your outdoor shed into a fitness getaway? Whether you want your own personal gym or yoga studio, an outdoor shed can create it! No longer will the excuse “the gym is too far away” will apply when you have a gym in your backyard! The convenience factor alone makes a backyard gym shed well worth it.
There's no denying that work-from-home jobs have seen a dramatic increase in recent years. It's hard to beat the convenience of saving on gas and time when working from home, but it's not without drawbacks. The lines between work and home life can become blurred when the living room or kitchen table doubles as an office. Turning your shed into a home office is a great way to create a personalized workspace. You’ll enjoy time to focus and be much more inclined to leave your work at the "office" at the end of the day.
A game room is another popular use for outdoor sheds and a great place for the kids to relax and hang out! Set up their favorite game table, or just a simple card table for puzzles and board games. The possibilities are endless when creating this fun space. Add a rug, a comfy couch, and a couple chairs to put some finishing touches on the space. This game shed is guaranteed for endless hours of fun and laughter! And as kids get older, you'll have peace of mind knowing they have a sage place to hang out with their friends.
Take your pool and patio to the next level by converting a shed into a pool house! A pool house is a great way to keep the party outside rather than inside your home. It’s a perfect space to cool off in the shade and dry off. Never again will you have to worry about visitors running through the house, leaving a trail of wet footprints behind. Plus, in the winter, it’s a great area to store all the pool supplies and furniture when they aren’t in use.
