Ways to Use Your Shed Beyond Storage

Well-designed shed interiors are a great way to add a dash of character to your living space. They can help bring your backyard to life and change the way that you and your loved ones gather together. 

Recently, we discussed some ideas for a large shed project. If you prefer a standard-sized shed, there are still plenty of ways to customize it to match your dreams. 

Beyond storing garden tools and other similar items, your shed can become a true focal point of your lifestyle, no matter the size. Here are some ideas for shed interiors you can consider for your next project:

Game Room 

On a warm summer night, nothing can beat the feeling of gathering together and playing games around a table with family and friends. Stay dry, comfortable, and keep the summer bugs away from the comfort of your game room shed! Whether you’re playing cards, a board game, or want to throw darts (be careful!), you can convert your shed interior into a game room with ease.

Fan Cave 

Have a favorite sports team whose games are just can’t miss events at your house? Turn your shed into the ultimate game day experience! Decorate your walls with your team’s logo and colors, set up some seating, and mount a television so that you’ll never miss a second of the action in your new fan cave.

Pool House

Building a pool house on your property provides a convenient way to store your pool equipment and a comfortable space to change and freshen up after a swim. With room partitions and storage lofts, you can also create additional storage space and give swimmers more privacy when they’re done taking a dip.

Backyard Bar

Turn your backyard shed into a bar and become the best cookout house on the street! Add a custom-built service counter, some high-top seating, and some storage for your favorite snacks and drinks, and you’re all set for entertaining your friends and loved ones.

Home Office or Studio 

Working at home is more common than ever, but sometimes having a dedicated space away from your home can help you concentrate and tackle your challenges for the day. Whether you’re tackling a huge proposal at work or pursuing your latest passion project, having a home office or studio in your backyard can help inspire your creativity and supercharge productivity at the same time.

Luxury Doghouse 

Who says your pets can’t have a beautiful space of their own? Turn your shed interior into a luxury dog house and brighten up your furry best friend’s day! You could even add a doggy door that leads to an outdoor enclosure for your pet to get some fresh air.

Garden Shed

Few things in life are more relaxing than planting a garden and watching it bloom. With a custom shed interior, you can turn it into your gardening headquarters or add some big, light-catching windows and make it the greenhouse of your dreams.

Tea House 

Sometimes, nothing can beat a cup of afternoon tea in your own cozy space. Turn your shed interior into a dream tea house by adding seating, shelving, and a fresh coat of paint. Bring the charm of your favorite teahouses right to your own backyard!
