Sheds in years past were utilitarian and solely used for the type of storage where you quickly take an item out, use it, and then return it to its spot. Today you can search for sheds near me to find a vast array of ideas on how to incorporate them into your storage solutions.
When you opt for a traditional storage shed strategically placed in your backyard, you are effectively creating a space to house all of your lawn tools and equipment. Outfitting the shed with wiring for overhead lights and electrical outlets means you can spend time inside finding what you need. With the outlets, you can plug in a rechargeable mower or blower and make your lawn care duties much easier.
Another amazing use for a shed is as a she shed or an artist’s studio. This space will allow creative individuals in your home to retreat to a quiet place and make beautiful art. They can get as messy as they want without worrying about dirtying up the main house. Add a deep sink for quick access to water when you need to wash your paint brushes and hands.
A truly unique and fun part of adding a shed to your property is the aesthetic. Do you want to create the look of a smaller version of your home? Or would you rather customize the entire project? Your imagination is the only limitation.
Have you ever raised your gaze upwards as you walk throughout your home? If not, it is time to do so. Look up towards the uppermost spaces on the walls of every room and look at what is there: blank space.
If you have a bathroom in need of more storage, take note of the area above the trim around your bathroom door. Install a sturdy shelf directly above and abutting the trim to achieve a built-in decor and storage item. Place extra toiletry supplies in matching baskets. They will look like they belong instead of still looking for a place to call home.
Adding hooks to your walls is another great way to make use of blank space. Place hooks in strategic spots in the kitchen to corral cooking utensils. Installing them in an accessible space in the bathroom will keep towels within reach and off the floor. Collections of hats or purses will stay in good shape when stored on hooks in the upper portions of a closet or behind a bedroom door.
