How to Choose the Right Shed For Your Garden

A shed can be a very personal space at your home. In the past, they were the musty preserve of the ageing gentleman and used to store his ‘man things’. Nowadays, times have changed, and a shed need not be a small, flimsy structure, riddled with spiders and earwigs. It can be a useful extension to your life!

So how do you go about choosing a shed that is perfect for your needs? The most crucial aspect to consider is the purpose. A home for your garden tools is one thing, but what else can be achieved with a not-so-humble shed?

Tool holder

If you’re a garden traditionalist and believe a shed is the only suitable place to house your tools, then take a look at metal sheds From Aston Sheds UK. While you’re there selecting one that perfectly fits your garden aesthetic, you could even treat yourself to some new tools so as not to dirty your new structure with your old ones! There’s a vast range available so you’d be spoilt for choice if it weren’t for the experts on hand to help you decide.


Perhaps your family has outgrown your living quarters, and you are looking for an area to escape to? Or maybe even somewhere to banish your loved ones to? Robust sheds are available and can be kitted out with electrics, even plumbing so you can create: a gaming suite, a cinema room, a recreational room, a reading room or even a home gym. The quality available is high so it means your shed can be fully waterproofed with glazed windows allowing lots of natural sunlight so you can even create an orangery-style (if you so desire). There are log cabin kits for sale too, to create the ideal cave for you and your family.

Office space

New working environments often facilitate the ability to work from home, but if you don’t have enough spare rooms to turn into an office, it can feel disjointed. It’s all well and good working from your dining table. Still, the feeling of never leaving your work behind when it’s sitting there staring you in the face can be overwhelming. If that’s true in your case, consider the options available as they can provide structures that will work perfectly for your working environment.

Living space extension

If you’re an entertainer who enjoys opening their home to friends and family but doesn’t quite have enough space, why not consider using more of your garden? The weather in England might not be the most conducive to outdoor living, but with the right accessories, you could enjoy it a lot more. A shed with the ability to add a gazebo, maybe even with large double doors could give you a whole extra party room to entertain out of. If it’s close to the barbecue even better – your burger won’t get too wet while you take cover!

So please take a look at your garden, size it up and then take a look at your life and size that up too. What’s missing? Because the addition of a shed can give you so much more than just a place to dump the lawnmower, it can enrich your life in more ways than ever before.
