Storage shed solutions
For the past few months, I’ve been trying to navigate this subject of storage sheds. It’s a topic that’s been talked about for ages, but I could never really figure out how to go about it. But now? Now it’s just a case of doing some research and figuring out what you want to store in your shed and then making sure you have the right stuff in there.
Essentially, if you’re looking at getting yourself a shed (or even a loft), you already know exactly what goes into one. A start is to make sure that the shed or loft is big enough for everything you need it for. You’ll also need a workbench installed so that you can saw things apart and then put them back together again, as well as plenty of hooks for coats, bags, and other items that are likely to come in handy when you go outside.
Then comes the lighting: if your shed isn’t going to be used much during the day (during the wintertime), make sure there is an abundance of natural light coming through from somewhere else in your home so that you don’t spend all night working or just not getting any sleep when it gets dark outside. If this isn’t an issue, consider installing skylights or simply bringing in more light by installing some highly reflective material so that the sun is reflected onto your shed or loft rather than bouncing off its walls and making it harder to see inside. Then there are freestanding shelving units (I love mine because they give me plenty of space for storing my supplies) which will help organize your storage space even more than before—and don’t forget about roof lights which will allow you to illuminate your entire corner without having too much clutter ruining its view from afar!
Stack your things in smaller containers
“I can’t believe how much stuff I have!” If this is something you’ve said to yourself, you’re not alone. Most people, at some point in their lives, find themselves looking around asking the same question. Where did all this stuff come from? And what should I do with it?
One of the greatest benefits of having a storage shed is that it allows you to be creative and resourceful in making use of every square inch. By thinking carefully about what goes into your storage shed, and how you pack it in there, you’ll end up with ample space for everything—and maybe even room for more pens! Here are some tips on how to make the most of your storage space:
- Use smaller containers: The right container can go a long way toward helping keep things organized and maximizing your space. There are many options out there, so experiment until you find the ones that are right for you. The smallest possible vessel is always best; anything larger than needed will just take up valuable real estate. Once stuffed to capacity with your belongings, place these compact containers into larger ones if necessary (you may already have these on hand) for maximum efficiency and organization. A few examples include pencil cases or recycled Pringles cans for pens; old shoeboxes or Tupperware™ bins for shoes; lunchboxes or tackle boxes for batteries; candy tins or repurposed Altoids™ tins for screws (just don’t forget which one holds which!).
- Be sure to stack your things in smaller containers: You’ll need to be a little more careful about packing when using smaller vessels because they could easily tip over inside their larger counterparts if packed too loosely or haphazardly—not good news if you have fragile items stowed away inside! However, when each piece has been securely placed within its own compartment (using whatever method works best: foam peanuts perhaps?) and then stacked neatly within its main box/bin/c

Use shelving units
When it comes to creating organization in a storage shed, one of the best ways is to use shelving units. Shelves can be used for a variety of things, including getting your tools off the floor, storing items you use infrequently, and housing your most-used tools within reach.
There are several different kinds of shelves you can use in your shed. The easiest and least expensive type is simply a board placed between two brackets on the wall. This allows you to stack things on top of each other while being able to access everything more easily without having to dig through bins or boxes. Another option is using wire racks that allow you to hang items such as brooms, rakes or shovels on them so they don’t take up floor space (which is especially important if your shed doesn’t have much room). You can also use shelves for bins filled with smaller items that need organizing but aren’t often used so they don’t get in the way when you’re working in the shed.
Install pegboards to make use of vertical space.
If you’re looking for an easy way to organize your shed, look no further than installing pegboards. Pegboards are a great way to make use of vertical space and keep your tools in clear view and within easy reach.
Pegboards can be used to organize just about anything, from hammers and wrenches to screwdrivers, pliers, tapes measures, utility knives and more. All you need is the right hook or peg for the job.
If you’re curious as to what types of hooks are available, here’s a quick rundown:
- Angled pegboard hooks – These angled hooks are designed for shelves that lack rear support brackets.
- Bolt bin rails – These rails will allow you to hang bins containing nuts, bolts and screws from your pegboard. They come in a variety of sizes depending on how large or small your storage needs may be.
- Double loop pegboard hooks – These have two loops instead of one so they can accommodate multiple items at once. They come in various lengths and depths so they’re perfect for different types of tools with flexible handles such as rakes and shovels.
- End cap hooks – These end cap hooks help guide wires away from the hook shaft so the wires don’t become tangled together when using multiple pegs in close proximity. This means that even if you have several electrical cords hanging on one board next to each other, they won’t get mixed up!
A storage shed should be a place to store your things and make them accessible.
- Who has access to your storage shed? Who is authorized to enter, and who can only enter in an emergency? A storage shed should have a label for access with clearly defined roles. You may want to consider whether your shed will be accessible only during certain hours or days of the week.
- Where is the main point of entry? Is it on a level surface, or will you need to use a ramp or lift? Will users need safety equipment before entering the area? Consider how much space there will be inside for maneuvering around your stored belongings.
- How much clearance does your storage shed need for its doors and other openings? Take care to ensure that the height and width of these spaces are sufficient for loading and unloading large items from your storage shed.
- What kind of doors do you need on your storage shed? Will you simply use a normal door, or do you require special accommodations like rolling shutters or double doors depending on what you plan to store in the space?
If you have a storage shed in your backyard, you’ve got a pretty sweet setup. You’ve got the space you need to store things like tools and garden supplies without worrying about them taking up space in your garage or basement. But if you’re not sure how to use your storage shed to its fullest potential, we’ve got 5 tips for what you should put inside it.
1. A Workbench
Your storage shed is the perfect place to set up a workbench. You can build one yourself or buy one from a local hardware store. The best part about having a workbench in your shed is that you can leave projects out overnight or on the weekends without needing to clean up at the end of the day. Also, it’s a good place to keep things like drills and other hand tools that might be taking up too much space in your garage.
2. A Lawn Mower
If your lawn mower takes up too much room in your garage, consider storing it in your shed instead! This is especially helpful if you live somewhere with snowy winters because then there’s no need to drag it in and out of the house every time it snows. Plus, if leaves or other debris get stuck undern
Whether you’re thinking of buying a storage shed, or you already have one, you might be wondering how to take advantage of all that space. If you don’t want to just fill it with junk, you’re in luck—there are plenty of great ways to use your storage shed to organize and beautify your home. Here are 5 tips on what to put in your new storage shed.
1) Seasonal decorations. If you’re tired of having your holiday decorations taking up precious closet space, or if you’re looking for a way to keep the kids’ bicycles out of the way during the winter, consider putting them in a storage shed. (Just make sure the items you put in the shed are weatherproof.) A storage shed is also perfect for furnishing those awkward spaces like porches and patios.
2) A potting bench. If gardening is your passion—or even just a passing interest—a storage shed can make the perfect place for a potting bench or gardening station. You can convert an old dresser into a planting bench by adding hooks and bins for soil and tools, and hanging baskets from unused drawers!
3) Re-purpose it. If you’ve got some creativity and imagination, a storage shed doesn’t have
For many homeowners, the storage shed is a place to put all those things from your house that you don’t use often and that don’t fit in your garage.
But there are some things you should never store in a shed.
Before you store anything in your shed, make sure to invest in a quality dehumidifier that will prevent mold growth.
You’ll also want to consider the size of your shed—bigger sheds can accommodate more items and help you organize them better.

Here are 5 Things You Should Never Store In Your Shed:1. Food: It’s tempting to think that if you’re storing food in your shed, it’ll stay cool and dry enough not to spoil—but this isn’t always true: depending on the conditions outside, food can spoil even when it’s stored inside a closed container! If anything goes wrong with either one of these factors, it could result in your favorite snacks getting ruined before they even make it into your mouth.

So, you’re finally ready to take the leap and get a storage shed. Congrats! The freedom of having a space that you can use in a variety of ways will change your life.
But what do you put in it? You’ve probably got a few ideas already—perhaps you want to use it as an outdoor office or as just another room where you can put all your stuff and forget about it—but here are some tips to help you think of how your shed can best fit all your needs.
1. Use It As A Place To Store Your Stuff
(I know, this is not a very creative suggestion, but hear us out.) When we think of our sheds, we tend to imagine the places we put things we want to forget, like boxes of old keepsakes, trophies from 5th grade baseball games, ladders, and other big items. And while some people may be up for a big cleaning sesh every summer in which they sort through these boxes and throw away anything unnecessary (we love ya if this is you), most people don’t have time for that.
One thing that can make the thought of keeping lots of stuff more manageable is if you organize the space well. If you make sure everything has its place—
1. The Unexpected: A storage shed is often the last place you think to put something, which is exactly why it should be the first place you consider when deciding where to keep your things safe.
2. The Fragile: Are you looking for a small house with a roof? Do you have too many ornaments and not enough cupboards to keep them in? You need a storage shed!
3. The Hard-to-Store: You know what’s hard to store? Christmas trees, that’s what. They’re big and bulky, but if you don’t have anywhere to keep them between seasons, they’re just going to end up cluttering your garage.
4. The Seasonal: Lawnmowers and gardening tools are great until winter rolls around—then they’re just taking up space better used for snowblowers, salt, and other winter gear.
5. The Secret: Everybody’s got secrets, but where do you keep yours? If you’re keeping them in a drawer at home, it’s time for an upgrade—your secrets deserve more than a sock full of love letters. Try storing that stuff in a storage shed!
1. Belongings you use every day.
2. Belongings that are important to you but that you don’t use very often.
3. Things that you don’t want to throw away, but are not important enough to store inside your home.
4. Things that you want to hold onto for sentimental reasons but can’t find a place for them in your home or garage.
5. Items that need protection from the elements, such as camping equipment and gardening tools.
