5 Creative and Clever Uses for Garden Sheds


As we’re preparing to say goodbye to autumn and starting to think about the winter holidays, we’re also growing a bit worried about the lockdown. All around the world things are a bit crazy and unusual but luckily, humans are creative beings. So even if we’re not happy about spending the following months at home, we’ll have to find things to keep our minds and our hands busy. Luckily, we’re creative beings and we now have the opportunity to put some time into those home and garden projects that have been neglected over the years.

If you’re on the lookout for modern garden sheds in the UK, we have great news. We offer a wide range of products that are affordable, easy-to-install, and incredibly versatile. If you’re not yet convinced, here are a few clever and creative uses for your garden shed.


If you love fiddling, fixing, building, and creating things, then you surely need a workshop. A garden shed will be a great investment for you because you’ll finally have a place to store all of your tools and equipment. This comes with many advantages. First of all, you won’t have to keep any sharp, oily, or messy things in your home. Your wife will be thankful, your kids will be safe, and you’ll have more storage space for clothing, kitchenware, toys, etc. Secondly, your tools will have their shelves, in a cool, dry place. So why not turn your garden shed into a workshop/storage space?

Pet House

If you love having pets then you already know that they need plenty of space. Wouldn’t it be great to have a storage room dedicated to everything pet-related? It would surely free up some space in the house. If you turn your garden shed into a pet house, you’ll get to keep all their food in a dry and cool place. This will be great, especially since dried dog food tends to smell, especially if you don’t have a dedicated storage area. Also, instead of throwing away different accessories and toys that your current pets aren’t enjoying, you’ll now get to store them for future generations.

Game Room

The lockdown is a great opportunity to spend more time with your family. But things can get a bit boring after a few weeks. A game room in your backyard will surely make things fun and entertaining. It will take a while to get everything installed, but if your family is on board, you’ll get everything done in about two weeks. So, what will you need for an awesome game room? You can start with comfortable furniture, a table, board games, a mini-fridge, and some shelves. Or, if your family loves to play videogames, focus on a big screen and a console. If you have a spacious garden shed, such as our Large Garden Room D, then you’ll be able to fit a snooker table or a ping pong table and still have plenty of room for other things. If your kids are still small, you can create a special play area for them where you can decorate the walls with their favorite cartoon characters, you can build a toy house for them without worrying that it will take up too much space in the house, and you can even install a ball pit. 6×4 shed or 8×6 shed would be the perfect size for game room.

Gym/Spa/Yoga Studio

Taking care of our bodies and minds should be a priority during these difficult times. Although sitting on the couch all day and watching Netflix is so tempting, it’s not ideal. So, if none of the options mentioned above match your lifestyle, this might be exactly what you need. Whether you’re into weightlifting, meditating, cardio exercises, or Pilates, you’re probably well aware that practicing at home is not the same as going to the gym. So why not bring the gym at home. Take advantage of your spare time by turning your garden shed into a workout room and use the lockdown in your favor. Make sure you choose a modern garden shed with plenty of space to accommodate all your equipment.

Hobby Room

If working out is not on your list of priorities, then you surely have other hobbies and activities that will keep you busy. A garden shed can be easily transformed into a painting, writing, sculpting studio, or even into a music room. If you’d like to learn how to play the drums, but your family keeps telling you that it’s a bad idea, a garden shed is a perfect solution. The same goes if you love painting or sculpting but you don’t have enough natural light in the house and your kids and pets keep messing with your tools. Furthermore, if you insulate and winter-proof your garden shed, you’ll be able to use it year-round.
