A shed can often become an eyesore within the garden and used as a dumping ground for all sorts of garden bits and bobs. Here are our top tips for maximising your shed space, whatever the size and type:
Consider keeping a mobile cart inside your shed, with your most utilised items in. You could use one of those ones people take to the beach, or even build your own with existing materials. You can then pull it out every time you need those items, saving yourself time and effort.
Consider using a pegboard organiser – it’s an old-school, but effective method of storage along the walls. Similarly, install shelving or similar as high as possible (within reach) in the shed. This will save on floor space.
You can use buckets or similar, with labels on to keep seasonal items in such as children’s toys, BBQ bits, and accessories for the garden furniture such as blankets. It’s also worth putting any garden furniture pillows and cushions into bags to minimise damage to them when they’re not being used.
Wire shelving is another good option particularly because it doesn’t warp or rot like traditional wooden shelving. It can be easier to spot what you need on wire shelves, too.
If you’re considering getting a new shed, a windowless one might seem harsh, but actually it’s better for protecting items inside. A windowless shed avoids trapping sunlight and overheating.
For a shed that’s both windowless, and won’t rot or warp like its wooden counterparts, consider upgrading to a ColourShed. These 6 x 8 ft sheds will not only help make your garden more aesthetically pleasing, but you’ll also “want” to keep them tidy inside!
So there we have it, lots of tips for maximising your shed storage space. Let us know if on our social channels if you try any of these.

Jean and John – Hertfordshire
“We are absolutely delighted with our garden fence and the service. We have had four areas done with the brown and the cream over the last 2 years and couldn’t be more pleased. After seeing our garden fence, two different friends have done the same and we are all thrilled… no more painting or wind damage. These metal garden fences have not moved an inch during the gales and we know they never will.
Joe – Bolton
“My recent experience of dealing with ColourFence deserves recording. Stephen Beaumont and his team are a credit to the industry. They were professional and courteous to deal with, from the initial meeting to discuss my needs, to finding an agreement was very amicable. The erection team arrived very early both days and worked manfully through atrocious conditions. Virtually torrential rain at times, but the team soldiered on! The end result was excellent, the metal garden fence looks fabulous and the team worked very neatly, tidying up as they went along. I could not recommend Stephen and the ColourFence team highly enough, very professional and delivering a great product in the end. We are very happy customers.”
Tony – Kidlington
“I had a guy come to the door today, he had a quote from ColourFence and as agreed he used me as a reference. I told him my garden fence was in the top three best purchases & decisions I have ever made, and expressed my respect for your work ethic, attitude and professionalism, etc. so hopefully you will get the sale.”
