5 Ideas for Using a Shed Other Than Storage

Sheds don’t have to be musty old shacks needed only for yard tools and other junk. With a little change in perspective, you can find new and creative ways to use a shed. You may come to find value where you did not before. To show you what we mean, here are five ideas for using a shed other than storage.

1. Home Offices

With so many of us working from home these days, it’s difficult to keep our work lives and private lives separate. Johnston Contracting Services offers prefab garages in Washington State that provide you with an office-sized space on your property that is separate from your home. Our garage and shed kits are high quality and come in a variety of designs, helping you personalize the most comfortable office for your needs.

2. Artist Haven

Do you need a place where you can get some peace and quiet to focus on your artwork? Sheds are a great space to dedicate yourself to your hobby and store your supplies in one neat spot. You can easily lose yourself to the creative process and allow your inspiration to soar in your very own sanctuary.

3. Clubhouse for Kids

For young families, a great idea for using a shed other than storage is to convert it into a clubhouse for your kids. This gives them a little space of their own where they can play and enjoy the company of their friends.

4. Workshops

Handy with your—well—hands? You can convert sheds or garages into workshops where you’ll be able to install more complex tools and machinery whenever you desire. This is especially great if you feel like it’s difficult to make meaningful progress on your projects when you keep all your materials and tools within your home.

5. She Sheds

It’s not uncommon for men to devote a room of their home as their “man cave,” and women should also have a space dedicated to their passions and hobbies! She Sheds are a rising trend that gives women their own space to customize and do with as they see fit, creating their ideal environment. You’ll also have a much closer connection to the outdoors, allowing you to enjoy sunny days as you indulge in your favorite hobbies.
