Create a home office
If you work from home then you might know how frustrating it can be to work around family members. Your co-workers can hear them during video calls, you’re distracted with chores and speaking, and it’s fairly easy to lose focus when you have all of your home comfort within arm’s reach. Want to watch TV? Just grab the remote. Feeling lazy? Just put your feet up and take a nap!
But if you want a dedicated home office space where you can switch on your business mode and start doing some serious work, why not create a home office out of your shed? You can get surprisingly large sheds these days, and you’ll be isolated from the rest of your home which can help you focus on your work.
Build another bedroom
Whether you’re looking to increase home value or are expecting to house a friend or new family member for some time, you can turn a relatively large shed or external building into another bedroom. This is relatively easy to do and you’ll be able to create a peaceful and functional extra room. Be it for guests or your family, it’s a good investment to make and will add a lot of convenience to your home.
Make it a large storage space
Most people already use their shed for storage, but did you know that you can get prefabricated sheds that are a lot bigger and sturdier than your average wooden shack? This can help you replace a relatively small shed with something much larger, giving you far more space to work with. You can use it to store all of the miscellaneous items in your home, or you can use it specifically for things like seasonal storage. You could even use it to store garden furniture when it’s raining to keep them in good condition.
Alternatively, you could also have multiple sheds and split their functionality or purpose. For example, one shed could be specifically for gardening tools, while another larger one could be for extra storage when your home or attic gets full.
Use it as a home gym
If your shed is large enough, then it’s the perfect candidate for a home gym. Gym equipment tends to be heavy and can ruin floors if you’re not careful, so having them away from your main home can give you peace of mind since the sound is isolated and you can build a shed to specifically handle large and heavy items.
As you can see, there are so many different ways for you to turn a backyard shed into something more valuable and functional. If you’re looking to add value to your garden, then choosing any of these suggestions will work wonders!
