When envisioning your ideal custom shed, what do you see? Perhaps you picture a decked-out she shed or hangout house where you can gather with friends. Do you envision a custom Bar shed adding the perfect outdoor entertainment space to your backyard? Maybe you would like a pool house to provide a getaway from the summer heat?
No matter how you intend to use your shed, you deserve enough floor space to enjoy it to its fullest! However, this raises an important question: How do you keep it all organized?
For those of us who love the outdoors, acquiring a large amount of sporting equipment, lawn care tools, and other similar items is just part of enjoying our lives. Deciding the best way to store these objects away from our gathering places, however, can sometimes feel easier said than done.
Without a stylish storage solution that matches your vision, it can sometimes feel challenging to keep everything organized. To help keep your floor space clear so you may make the most of your building, here are some shed storage ideas you can put to use.
Shed Storage Lofts
A storage loft allows you to make the most out of your shed’s square footage. By adding a separate space above the ground floor, you can store less frequently used items away from where you enjoy life’s moments the most. If you want an “out of sight, out of mind,” yet easy to access solution for your equipment, a loft is the way to go!

Don’t want to have to lift storage items up to a loft? A room partition provides the same separation without the need for any lifting. You can create both storage space and leisure space in a single shed without clashing with your vision!

Building shelving units into the shed wall allows you to store your equipment with little impact on your floor space. Use built-in shelving to store your gardening equipment, tools, sporting goods, and other important items for easy access without the need for large cabinets, lockers, or other cumbersome furniture.

Visit any hardware store, and you will likely find a broad range of wall mounts for tool storage. While these tool holders will compete for wall space, they ensure your items are stored safely off of the ground, leaving you more floor space to enjoy.

Upgrading to a Larger Shed
A larger shed can provide you with more room to better separate your leisure space from storage. With more square footage to work with, you can also consider installing a broader and longer loft for added ceiling storage.
Many of our customers who opt for larger sheds request room partitions as well. This extra separation helps further divide the space between leisure and equipment storage and allows you to create two different environments all their own.

For those who prefer to keep their yard equipment here, a custom-built garage can be outfitted to match your exact specifications along with lofts and/or room partitions to fully bring your dreams to life!
