Strewn about all across the United States are small structures in backyards. These structures have become an integral part of American society and we’ve familiarized ourselves with them.. 

For decades, the shed was known as a simple storage solution—a place to throw your mower, tools, and equipment and move on. But lately, there has been a revolution. Homeowners have begun to reclaim their space and do more with it by converting their sheds into beautiful, livable spaces, specialized for their hobbies. 

There are so many storage shed uses that every homeowner can take advantage of. This is because storage sheds are so versatile, the only thing that can hold you back is your imagination! To help you make the decision, we’ve compiled a list of storage shed uses that you can use to your advantage! 

Outdoor Storage Shed Office

It’s the 21st century! Now more than ever, people have the benefit of remote work from the comfort of their homes. Covid has led to lots of life changes and one of the new changes includes remote work. With everywhere getting shut down, there had to be a way to keep working and progressing, so lots of companies adopted a remote work situation. Now, some people prefer to keep home life and work life separate so what better way to do that than to have a storage shed right in your backyard? 

You can easily convert your outdoor storage shed into an office space with some remodeling. A desk, chair, some monitors and whatever office materials you need are all you need to get started. If you have a remote job, this is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. An outdoor storage shed office grants you space where you won’t be interrupted and can go into your flow state to make your best work.

Potting Shed

Potting sheds are typically smaller sheds, found in gardens, where plants are potted or repotted. These sheds usually have shelves or benches to hold pots, soil, and gardening tools. Many also have an abundance of windows to provide natural light and ventilation. A potting shed can be a simple structure, or it can be more elaborate, with electricity and running water.

No matter its size or features, a potting shed is a convenient place to pot or repot plants, store gardening supplies, and take refuge from bad weather. A great way to feed into your gardening hobby! Check out our sheds here to see which one would make the best potting shed for you.

Music Studio Shed

A music studio shed is a backyard shed that has been converted into a recording studio. This studio type is becoming increasingly popular, allowing musicians to practice and record without disturbing their neighbors or their family. Music studio sheds typically have soundproofing materials installed, as well as a computer for recording purposes. All you need to soundproof your shed are some sound-absorbing foam panels which are relatively cheap. You can find these on amazon.

If you’re really hardcore, you can even have a small living area, so that you can live in your shed while working on your craft. While not as luxurious as a traditional recording studio, a music studio shed can be an excellent way for an aspiring musician to get into the industry.

Art Shed

An art shed acts as a personal workspace for artists. The sheds are typically made from materials such as wood or metal, and they often have large windows to let in natural light for more creative inspiration. A lot of art depends on being in the right environment and letting your creative juices flow. A personalized art shed in your backyard gives you an isolated space to put aside distractions and focus on your work.

Art sheds provide a convenient and affordable way for artists to have their own studio space, which can be placed in nearly any location. Whether an artist uses an art shed to paint, sculpt, or just store supplies, these versatile buildings can be a great addition to any home or property.

Sewing Shed

With sewing beginning to see a resurgence, more and more people are starting to pick up the hobby and learn more about it. So having a shed in your backyard, that you can design to your liking, and use whenever you want is a great investment in your hobby. Who knows, you might just be starting with stitching up your family’s old clothes, and begin to extend to your neighbors and maybe even eventually making it a business! The shed may be equipped with electricity, but this is not always the case. Depending on your sewing machine, you might need to wire your shed with electricity but this is not as daunting as you think. 

Many sewing sheds are outfitted with a few chairs, a sewing machine, and some basic supplies. For many people, a sewing shed is a place to relax and enjoy the creative process. It can be a peaceful refuge from the hustle and bustle of daily life. In some cases, the sewing shed may also be used as a workshop, where clothing and other items are made to sell. Whatever its use, a sewing shed can be one of your most cherished investments!

Gaming Shed

Gaming is one of the most popular hobbies in the United States and for good reason. Video games allow you to step away from the real world and explore new environments and compete with or against other people all in the comfort of your home. A problem many people face is that with so many responsibilities, their gaming hobby starts to die out.

Your job, family, and other commitments can be a hard burden so, at a time when you need your own space and hobbies, you are left without either. So one of the best storage shed uses is converting your shed into a dedicated gaming space. This can reverse your problems and give you an area where you can game in peace, without bothering your kids or spouse.
