RUSTIC CHARM: 5 WOODEN STORAGE IDEAS FOR SMALL BACKYARDS
Moving into the city is a whole new experience, especially if you grew up in the suburbs. There are fewer yards to frolic in but more places packed in pocket areas. That’s why the usual setup for urban folks is apartment and condo living. Or if you have the luxury of having your lot, space is more cramped. If you’re considering doing either, check this comprehensive guide to make sound decisions in buying your first real property.
However, you can still make your city home as cozy as possible. Whether you’re homesick or just fascinated with the rustic look, introducing natural elements will completely transform your limited living space. And wooden storage sheds harken back to the peace of suburban life.
Who would have thought a usually practical element can add character to your space? There are more ways than one to use a wooden storage shed in a small yard. Creativity knows no bounds, hence here are five wood storage shed ideas for small outside spaces that should inspire you:
Starting with the basics, use a utility shed for bulky tools and materials. A double-swing door utility shed is a versatile storage space, where you can add shelves and hooks for added functionality. You can also put a detachable ramp for heavy wheeled equipment you want to store. Our utility sheds range from 32 square feet up to 560 square feet.
Want to up your gardening game? Turn your firewood shed into a plant display by fastening shelves to its walls. If the interior is too shady, alter your shed with extra windows or some clearpoly roof panels to allow sunlight to seep in. Customize it further by adding storage on its lower half, where you can put your trowels, seeds, and gardening whatnots. Look at our hearthstone shed that comes in four different sizes and features a stylish Saltbox roofline.
If you have tiny tots asking for a real-life dollhouse, what better way to build one by using a shed as a base structure? Storage sheds with windows are perfect as on-scale dollhouses. It already mimics a basic house structure, roof and all. Look at our 6×8 Nantucket variant for your potential playhouse project. If your yard is a tad roomier, our Dollhouse shed is already custom-made for play purposes with a touch of sophistication.
Do you find your current garbage disposal system rather unsightly? Use a wooden garbage shed to make your disposal spic and span. We have a Trash Shed in our catalog complete with two separate bins. It can come in handy in separating the disposables from the reusables. It also features an extra overhang extending to the front, providing ample protection during rain or snow.
A storage shed can be large enough to accommodate people within its walls. And another option is to use it for yourself and demarcate a new area in your yard. You can revamp it into an outdoor lounging area and personalize it with outdoor seats. The wooden finish adds an intimate and laid-back vibe for your relaxation. Leave off some or all of the siding for an open air hangout. Add some string lights, lawn chairs and a bar for an atmospheric backyard lounge.
