5 Ways To Make Your New Garden Shed Feel Homey
If you’re one of the lucky few who have a new garden shed, congratulations! You now have a blank canvas to work with; a space that can be transformed into whatever you want it to be. A little bit of effort will pay off in the long run, making your shed a comfortable and inviting space you’ll want to spend time in. Here are five tips to get you started.
1) Let There Be Light
The first step in making your garden shed feel like a home is to maximise natural lighting. Most sheds come with at least one small window, but if yours doesn’t have any natural light, consider adding some skylights or solar lights. Not only will this make your shed feel brighter and more inviting, but it will also make it easier to see what you’re doing when you’re working on projects.
2) Add Some Colour
After you’ve let some light into your shed, it’s time to add some colour. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders, and it’s a relatively inexpensive way to completely change the look and feel of your shed. If painting isn’t your thing, hang some colourful curtains or tapestries on the walls, or purchase some throw pillows or blankets for the furniture. Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to experiment until you find a style that suits you.
3) Furnish Your Shed
One of the most important steps in making your garden shed feel like home is furnishing it with both functional and comfortable items. A chair and a table are essential for anyone who plans to spend significant time in their shed but don’t stop there. Consider adding a bookshelf or television if you want your shed to double as a workspace or a relaxation space. And if you really want to go all out, consider adding a small kitchenette complete with a sink and a mini fridge.
4) Accessorise Your Shed
Once you’ve furnished your shed and added some colour, it’s time to accessorise. Family photos, posters, and plants are all great ways to personalise your space and make it feel like yours. And when it comes to plants, don’t forget that they can also help purify the air inside your shed. So whether you opt for real plants or fake plants, make sure to add some greenery to your new home away from home.
5) Get Rid Of The Clutter
Last but not least, get rid of the clutter! This is perhaps the most important tip on this list because let’s face it, nobody wants to spend time in a cramped and cluttered space, no matter how well-decorated it is. So before you start using your shed as a place to store all of your old junk, take some time to purge anything that you don’t need or use anymore. That way, you’ll have more space for the things that truly matter, and your shed will feel more like an oasis than an afterthought.
