Fascinating Ideas for a Beautiful Garden Shed

garden shed

A garden shed can be so much more than just a place to store your tools. It can become a wonderful place to read in the garden or a place where the kids can play. Transforming your garden shed is also a great way to increase the value of your home. Professional renovations cost time and money, so many property owners choose to renovate their own homes. The Do-It-Yourself culture is quite popular, with numerous television programs dedicated to the practice of D-I-Y home. Here are some creative ideas for backyard retreats to completely transform your boring old garden shed into a useful space.

Home Office

Hate sitting in traffic and commuting to your office? Why not create a stunning home office so you don’t have to? Outdoor garden sheds are perfect for converting into a backyard office where you can get away from the domestic responsibilities and write, study and work. This is a great idea if you have kids because this will be the optimum work set up from home. Letting yourself be detached from the house is key to getting work done.

Bathroom Addition

If you love relaxing in a nice warm bath but don’t have the space in your house, why not take it outdoors? Turn your garden shed into a luxury resort where you can wind down and relax. You can get away from domestic responsibility and recharge your batteries. Plus, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. Why pay for a day spa, when you can create your own? To keep the heat in and the cold out you will need to insulate the shed.

A Greenhouse

Finding that your plants are wilting in the summer or freezing in the winter time? Create a greenhouse for them to reside in and hide away from the harsh weather conditions. There are adjustments you can make to your shed to ensure your plants are taken care of. Like, ensuring the windows are big enough to allow plenty of light in. Inspect plants before bringing them indoors. If they show signs of pests or disease, cure the problem before you infect your other indoor plants.

A Playhouse

Whether you have a small house or not, the kids will love a place of their own to play. Creating a place for the kids to play will get them out of the house and outdoors (somewhat). Include some creative activities for them to do in the garden shed like a chalkboard, table and chairs, some beans bags and books. They’ll love spending hours on end playing out there!

An Art Studio

This idea is perfect for a budding artist and creative minds.  If you are an art lover you will love this idea! Having a private space to have time to think and get your creative juices flowing is ideal. You’ll be free to paint and do art projects without cluttering your home’s living room. You can also go in there without the worry of spilling paint on the floors or walls in your home.

Get inspired by these ideas and turn that old or unused garden shed into a place where you love to spend your time! When purchasing a garden shed, maybe one of these ideas will come to mind or you might simply plan on using it to hold your garden supplies. Whatever the case may be, there are a number of ways to utilize your sheds space, so get creative!

    I love the idea of turning one of our garden sheds into a beautiful playhouse for the kids to play in or a home office so I can escape every now and then and actually get some work done!

    I’d love to convert an outside garden shed / garage into an Office in our next home. There’s nothing better than fresh air and natural daylight flooding in whilst working

      So true, it would be awesome to convert shed or garage to an office

    I always wanted a garden shed to use as a play room sort of thing as a kid! Now I’d love my very own work and chill out space!

    • July 27, 2016 / 9:38 am

      I am with you on the work and chill out space

    Fab post! We’ve got a shed that I’m eyeing up for a re-purpose and redecoration next summer, if I can persuade my husband to get rid of his stuff out of it!

      Thanks and good luck, hope you’re able to repurpose the shed

    Great ideas! I personally much prefer apartments as I don’t have time to garden but if that ever changes I will definitely be making the most of a shed!

    I wish I had a garden to put a shed in, I’d use it for storage to keep the house less cluttered x

    • July 25, 2016 / 8:14 am

      Same here

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:55 am

      I would probably do the same I had a shed

  11. July 24, 2016 / 8:24 pm

    I really like the idea of having an office in the garden. I’d love to convert a shed or summer house to a quirky office space. Great post!

    • July 24, 2016 / 8:35 pm

      Thanks, same if I had a shed

  12. July 24, 2016 / 5:48 pm

    I love the idea of having a home office in the garden – it’s still a dedicated work space that’s separate from the living space, but you could commute in your PJs haha!

    • July 24, 2016 / 8:35 pm

      Hahaha exactly, doing some commuting but in your PJ’s

    We got rid of our garden shed last year and built a hay/clay house instead. It took a year to finish and it’s now an amazing little space to get away and think.

    • July 24, 2016 / 8:34 pm

      Oh wow that sounds really lovely
