With the demands of the home and the lack of space which seems common these days, which is understandable with the cost of property, the garden does play a key role. It is used more and more for a variety of uses despite its limited size and this is why the garden shed is probably one of the most useful additions to any home.
With the sheer number of companies selling them, you can choose from a great selection of styles, sizes and price ranges. However, like most things you need to spend a little time making the right choice. To start with you need to decide how much space you can afford to lose, although lose is a wrong word because of the extra storage space you gain, from your garden.
Always go for the largest shed possible as you will find you will often regret it quite quick. Having said that if you have a large garden shed you can end up using it as a dumping ground and hanging on to unnecessary clutter. So as you can see there are two sides to every argument.
After choosing the size consider the style of the shed. Do you want the traditional apex style (pointed roof) which tends to sit comfortably in most gardens, or do you want a pent roof shed (single sloping roof) which can look a bit ‘boxy’. Having said that the pent style can be more functional and can offer more storage space about the windows. So give it some thought.
If you are thinking of growing a few tomatoes or vegetables then a garden potting shed may be an option. A very clever design is the Diamond Solar Potting shed with a half glass roof from 1st Choice Leisure Buildings. The practicality of a potting shed with the style of a greenhouse with masses of warm sunshine flooding in.
If you have just a little space alongside the house then the Diamond Streamline shed could fit the bill. Being only 3ft wide, and narrower if required, these sheds enable you to eke out every little bit of wasted space in your garden. There are also corner sheds which can complement the garden beautifully.
However whatever shed you go for and whatever shed company you need to ensure the quality of the shed is right. Whilst cheap is good it not so great when the shed starts to fall apart after only a few years. Surely paying slightly more for a well-made garden shed from a company which has a show site so you can see the shed has to be good sense. Even if you don’t buy from them it can make you think about any shortcomings about any other sheds you may be interested in.
So you can see that the garden shed will fit any available space as they come in a myriad of sizes and styles. With the choice of metal, concrete and plastic sheds, which only come in standard set sizes, you are spoiled for choice. Make the right choice and ensure all your garden implements, furniture, kid’s toys etc. have a nice dry safe home.
