A storage shed is essential if you need more space.
If you are running out of room in your home, a storage shed is the answer. Storage sheds provide you with the extra space you need to store things in an organized fashion. Storage sheds come in all shapes and sizes to fit any size yard or budget. A storage shed will increase the value of your property by adding both form and functionality. Not only can you use a storage shed as extra storage, but it can also be used as a place to work or relax, depending on its purpose.
A storage shed can make your home safer.
A storage shed can make your family home safer in several ways. For example, a locked storage shed is a great place to keep tools and other items that could be stolen. It also offers a great way to protect your family from getting hurt by keeping tools and other items out of their way. A storage shed can even provide a safe place for children to play.
As you can see, there are many reasons why you need a storage shed, but these 5 will help you get started on your journey towards being an organized person with all the things they love stored in one location!
A storage shed can save you money.
A storage shed can actually save you money.
Renting a storage unit is expensive. Storage units can cost anywhere from $50/month to hundreds of dollars per month, depending on how much space you need and what services the storage company provides. If you have a large amount of items that need to be stored, renting a storage unit will end up costing more than simply building your own shed.
The money saved by building your own shed could go towards more useful things, like actual trips to the Caribbean or the purchase of other home improvement tools. Additionally, if you have a storage shed and no longer need to rent a storage unit yourself, you could then rent out your old storage unit for extra income! Now that’s what I call being financially savvy!
A storage shed protects your belongings.
A storage shed does a lot more than just give you someplace to keep things. It can also protect your possessions from damage and loss. A shed provides security for your stuff, keeping it safe from thieves and vandals—even the neighbor’s cat. It also prevents wear and tear on your belongings by keeping them dry in the yard or free of summer heat inside the home.
If someone else is going to be using the shed, it’s important to make sure they know how to care for your belongings. You’ll want to educate children about what not to touch or move around so that delicate items don’t get broken.
A storage shed increases the value of your home.
Admittedly, a storage shed has never been on our wish list. We’ve had a particular aversion to them, in part because we’re not big fans of the aesthetics or lack of privacy they bring to the landscape—much like a store-and-shelter combo, they strain our imaginations into imagining how others might see us if they get an eyeful of our garage.
However, we finally came around to see what all the fuss was about when we realized that a storage shed could be used as an investment.
Based on statistics from the real estate market research firm Homedsales, it’s estimated that Canadians spend at least $59 billion per year putting things away in sheds and garages (that’s more than $846 per person). Considering this is money spent for storage space, safety and security (from thieves) and blockades against other people (if you don’t want strangers peeking at your personal things), we wondered: why wouldn’t you take advantage of something like this?

Now that summer is over, we all need to start thinking about how to store our outdoor equipment.
While many of us don’t like to admit it, most of us have a lot of stuff that we don’t necessarily want cluttering up our homes. Luckily, there are plenty of options for storing your stuff outside of your home and keeping it out of the way.
Outdoor sheds are great for storing tools, bikes, lawnmowers, and other large items in a way that keeps them out of sight and easily accessible. If you’re wondering whether investing in a shed is right for you, consider these reasons why you might need a storage shed.
#1: You Have Some Big Tools That Need A Home
If you’re like me and can’t resist buying tools at Home Depot every time they have a sale (even though you rarely use them), then a storage shed is your best bet for keeping all those tools organized. Did you know that a tool chest or closet can easily be installed into your existing shed? This will make accessing your tools much easier than rummaging through dusty piles in the basement. We all know that maintaining organization makes any project run smoothly, so make sure your tools are stored properly with
We’re here to tell you that you need a storage shed. You might think you don’t, but there are so many things you need to keep in your shed that you’re likely to be surprised by how long the list gets.
For example, you might want to store your lawnmower in your shed. Or maybe your snowblower, if you live in a climate where they need one of those. Maybe your bicycle? Your air conditioner? Your kids’ bikes? The gas grill, or patio furniture? All kinds of things.
You need a storage shed.
Now obviously that’s not true. A lot of people live without storage sheds, and do just fine. But if you want to store things, having a storage shed is probably the best way to go, because:
1. You can store a lot of stuff in a storage shed.
2. It’s easy to access your stored items when you have a storage shed.
Every year, the average American adds at least one new hobby to their already packed schedule. From scrapbooking to a newfound interest in insect collecting—sometimes it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to do all the things you want to do. When your family’s home just doesn’t have the space for all of your hobbies, you might need some extra storage space.
Storage sheds can offer an easy solution to this problem. With just a little bit of extra room, you can safely store all of your equipment and materials without cramping your family’s style. Here are some reasons why you might need a storage shed:
1) You have more hobbies than you know what to do with.
2) You’re always adding more hobbies to that list.
3) You need somewhere to keep all that stuff from cluttering up your home.
4) Your family needs room to spread out and relax, not trip over skateboards or wade through LEGOs when they walk into the living room.
5) You’re tired of looking up “where do I even start” on YouTube when trying to figure out how to organize your craft supplies by color and material type.
Are you drowning in clutter? Do you need a storage shed, but don’t know where to start? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
You may not be able to tell by looking at my living room, but I’ve been there. There was a point in my life when I had so much stuff that I couldn’t even close my bedroom door. It was stressful. I’d have friends over, and I would hide all the clutter behind my couch so they wouldn’t see it and think I was a hoarder or something.
The turning point came for me when I woke up one day and realized that if I didn’t get a handle on this clutter thing, it was going to take over my entire life. And as much as I like stuff, it wasn’t worth sacrificing everything else for! So now, we have a (very organized) storage shed full of all the things that we don’t need every day.
We’ll talk more about how to get started with your own storage shed later in the post, but first let’s go over why you might want a storage shed in the first place:
A storage shed might not seem like the first thing that comes to mind when you start thinking about organizing your home, but it could be the thing that puts you over the edge from “okay” to “perfect.” We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite things to store in a shed, and why you’ll never regret having one.
Store your Christmas decorations here. You only get them out once a year anyway, and they won’t be in your way when it’s time to celebrate baby Jesus.
Put your summer clothes here when it’s winter, and vice versa. That way you’ll always have room for what you’re wearing right now!
Keep all of your cooking gear in there if you don’t cook much. Then if you really need a waffle iron, it’ll be right there!
Toys for your kids, or grandkids if you’re lucky enough to have ’em! If nothing else, at least you’ll know where they are all the time.
It’s also great for storing stuff that doesn’t belong in your house: tools, lawnmowers, snow blowers… the sky’s the limit!
And what about yard games? Croquet sets, horseshoes… anything that would otherwise clutter
1. Your garden tools—rake, shovels, gloves, etc.
2. Your bikes—both adult and child-sized
3. The pool toys your neighbor let you borrow that one time
4. All the stuff on your porch that’s not supposed to be on your porch
5. Your Christmas tree (that was last year’s, right?)
