6 Creative Uses for Outdoor Sheds


Storage sheds have come a long way from being only used to store a lawn mower and tools. Sheds have evolved into an extension of the home that can become an outdoor oasis with endless possibilities. Now the hard part is how to decide what you would want your outdoor room to become. Below are 6 different ideas of what you could turn an outdoor shed into:

Outdoor Bar

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 Room

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! There will be tons of space just for you and plenty of storage for supplies. You’ll enjoy room to spread out to complete your projects, plus a quiet area for you to focus.

Gym/Yoga Studio

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 to go to” will apply when you have a gym in your backyard! The convenience factor alone makes a backyard gym shed well worth it.

Home Office

Everybody dreams of the lavish life of working from home. However, it’s very easy to get distracted with endless chores that need to get done or by how much fun your family is having in the other room. A perfect way to create a space where you can really focus and get down to business is by turning your shed into an office! You’ll finally have your own space that will be neat, organized, and quiet. Additionally, if you are in a role that often requires meeting clients in person, an office shed creates a place with no distractions and has the potential wow factor instead of meeting in a living room or at the kitchen table.

Game Room

A game room is an amazing place for your kids to relax and creates a place for family fun! All you have to do is set up an air hockey table, ping pong table, pool table, or really even a table to play board game or cards on. Really the possibilities are endless when creating this space. Add a comfy couch or a couple of chairs and you are good to go. This game shed is guaranteed for endless hours of fun and laughter! Plus as kids get older, it’s nice to know they will be wanting to hang out at home with their friends.

Pool House

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 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.

When it comes to what you turn your shed into, the possibilities are truly endless. Check out our shed gallery for more inspiration, and call Recreation Unlimited at (31) 773-3545 or visit our Noblesville showroom to start designing your custom shed today!
