Do you have a garden shed that is just taking up space in your garden because you’re not using it for anything any more? Have you ever thought about turning it into something else instead of just letting it stand there being useless? There is so much you can do with garden sheds that are no longer in use. Here are four suggestions:
Turn it into an office:
Do you have a lack of space in your house to make a proper office? Or do you just simply need some peace and quiet? An alternative would be to renovate your old shed and make it into an office. This suggestion only counts for the warmer seasons as it might be too cold working in an isolated shed during winter. Make sure you have a good lock on the door as you don’t want anything to get stolen. It’s also probably a good idea to bring expensive equipment like computers, hard drives and so on into the house overnight.
Turn it into a music room:
Do you want to listen to or make your own music without disturbing everyone else in the house? The garden shed will be a good idea if you want to separate yourself from the rest of the family whilst relaxing/working. However, if you have close neighbours you still have to be careful with how loud you play your music as they might be a bit irritated if the noise becomes too loud!
Turn it into a playroom
If you have kids you can turn the shed into a playroom where your kids can have their own personal space. A playhouse will create a safe environment close to home and you won’t have to watch them all the time, but they’ll still be close enough for you to keep an eye on.
Turn it into a “man cave”
Take an extension cord and bring your TV and PlayStation into the shed. This can give you some time alone and at the same time you can relax and not disturb the rest of the family. A “man cave” is nice to have if, for example, your wife is having friends over so you can withdraw to a more relaxing place.
