A garden shed can be used for storage or for just lazing the afternoon away. When designing your shed, select the style based on how you want to use it. The shed’s floor should be sturdy and easy to clean. Concrete is a great choice, to redesign your garden shed, but there are other options too, such as wooden planks or flagstone. For doors and windows, think in terms of light, ventilation and appearance. Design the shed’s interior based on how you want to use it. You can add sources of lighting and water, if desired. And don’t forget the surrounding landscape. It’s not a garden shed if there’s no garden.
- Concrete makes a great foundation for your shed, and you can use it as a floor as well, or add wooden planks, vinyl or another material as flooring.
- Be very careful when planning to install windows, and make sure they won’t threaten the structural soundness of the shed.
- Even with natural light, it’s a good idea to have a safe, reliable light source inside your shed.
“You can customize the shed to satisfy your specific interest — like a place where you can draw, write, compose, meditate, stargaze, or just enjoy personal space.”
