Today I have thought about a few practical ideas for those of you living in a small house with a yard. After seeing how you can maximize the space in your garage, how about building a small shed to deposit various tools?

Considering not all of you have a shed in your yard or garden, I thought I’d first give you an idea on how to build a small shed and how to arrange it so it can be your new favorite storage space.

#1 How a shed should look like: small but has plenty of room for storage. As you see in the picture, this shed has storage places both in and outside. Plus it has a bright, cheerful color, and is a great decor addition to your garden.

#2 Now let’s check out some empty sheds and use our imagination to fill up all that space.

These are two different ways of modelling your shed, depending on the size of the shed and what you want to store in it. In my opinion, the second one could also be used as summer house.

#3 But let’s return to our main goal: shed storage ideas. This one looks quite practical and is perfect for really small gardens.

#4 This is one is a bit more elaborate, but it is easy to organize by placing some shelves on the walls. With some wood chip boards and a bit of handicraft skills, this is a totally doable project.

#10 Collected too many bottles, vases and ornaments throughout the years? I’m also not immune from that sin. This is an idea for those of you collecting old stuff you just don’t want to get rid of or has too much sentimental value.

#11 Look at this! This small shed is built on one of the house’s wall. You don’t even need that much space to build this. Plus you can select the size you want depending on what you plan to store in it.

#12 Boxes again. The good thing about boxes is that you can fit them anywhere, so why not in the shed? They’re also great for keeping dust away if you don’t use those thing for a long time.

Let’s recap! The shed can be used not only for storing things, but can also be transformed into a dryer or a pantry, or whatever you can think of.
