10×10 Sheds are one of the most popular sizes for homeowners because of how versatile they are. They are large enough to be converted into workshops or offices and are affordable enough to just use for storage! Get some info on the perfect 10×10 shed in this blog!



Stuff is Crowding Your Space

Stuff; The bane of modern living. Gadgets. “Must have” tools. There’s yard upkeep, gardening, house repair, and other maintenance needs, not to mention the all-important recreational “tools.” One of the main ideas behind a 10×10 shed is to provide a place for some of this stuff.

Now if you have a luxury car, you want to store, or something with more size and substance than your zero-turn mower, you might want to look into a bigger storage shed or even a prefab one car garage. Or, maybe you’re looking to have a sports shed where you can exercise regularly. But just stuff? A 10×10 storage shed rocks.


You live in a busy world. One of these times, you’re afraid you’ll meet yourself coming when you’re going. Being busy is fine (I guess) as long as you don’t forget the important things in life. An integral part of all this is your backyard. What better place to leave the busyness of the world behind? Have a sanctuary right on your home turf.

A nicely landscaped 10×10 shed like the one above adds to the “at home” feel. Dare I say it can even express your character, or at least your preferences? We’ll look at specific styles that may help that expression later in this blog.


Planning ahead for 10×10 Storage Shed 

Don’t make the mistake of deciding on the size of your shed by pure guesswork.

Think about what you have to store in your new backyard storage shed. A 10×10 shed is limited in its storage footprint, but there are ways to make the most of the 140 square feet you have. See the floor plan here to get an idea of what might fit into a 10×10 shed. You can nicely fit a lawnmower or ATV along with bikes and other tools.

Maximize 10×10 Shed Space Up Above

In addition to the wall space, you also have the overhead space in portable buildings to think about. Hative gives a few great ways to maximize ceiling space. 

Add a Loft to your 10×10 Shed

Seriously, there are multiple ways to put that upper space to work, even with a 10×10 shed. This can be a simple DIY loft project where you add a loft at either end or a wraparound loft or you can incorporate it into your original plan.

You may be pleasantly surprised how much storage space is added to your 10×12 shed with a loft. Items not used often can be stored up and out of the way while remaining accessible when you need them.

Please keep in mind that the storage shed roof style you choose will likewise increase the amount of storage available in your loft area.


Now that you know a 10×10 storage shed has the space you need (with all the new organization ideas), you need to choose a shed style. Keep in mind again, that the amount of interior storage space will depend on the shed choice you make.

What are the Exterior Options for a 10×10 Shed?

LP SmartSide Sheds

This exterior option will make sure that your shed lasts for many years. While others replace their sheds, you will appreciate the fact that yours is still in good shape and keeping your belongings safe.

Metal Sheds

These sheds are long-lasting and low-maintenance. With strengthened hinges that help prevent forced entrance, the metal siding will provide you with more security.

Wooden Sheds

This option became a very popular choice for homeowners who want to keep their investments like lawnmowers and other things safe. Wooden siding is known for its durability and easy maintenance.

Vinyl Sheds

This siding is made to withstand the elements, including heavy wind and impact from hail. Vinyl siding resists excessive moisture, meaning it won’t rot or corrode over time.
