Making a shed, more than just a shed!

headerWe often use our sheds to store typical garden items such as planting tools and the lawnmower, but your shed could be destined for so much more. Most sheds are just simple wooden planks combined with a concrete floor, but with a little imagination and some work, you can transform your shed into a variety of wonderful things.

Below we've listed some ideas to give you a little inspiration to transform your shed into something more.

mancave1. Man/woman cave

Turn your shed into an escape haven, where either you, your partner or the kids can relax, chill or just get 5 minutes to yourselves. To complete this transformation, it's all about the accessories. You will need power for a mini fridge filled with beer, wine or soft drinks, a flat-screen TV, neon bar signs and maybe a music dock. Remember that if you are holding valuable items, it's worth putting a strong lock on the door when not in use.

bar2. An outside bar

This is the perfect addition to your garden all year round. Whether it's transforming your shed into a cocktail bar for the summer season, a beer haven to celebrate Oktoberfest or a cosy delight to sip on mulled wine during the festive months, an outside bar will ensure everyone wants to visit your home. The only problem will be trying to get people to leave!

greenhouse3. Greenhouse

For those with green fingers, a greenhouse can help give plants a head start before it begins to heat up outside. It's going to need insulation so it's always warmer than the outside and it's going to need some sunlight through either skylights or large windows. It's a big project, but a rewarding one if you're willing to take it on.

office4. An office

Sometimes home life is manic and when we need to do some work we are constantly surrounded by distractions. This is when transforming your shed into an office is a perfect idea. Add in a desk, some shelves, lighting and a heater and you've got yourself a quiet place to work. If you need the use of internet, invest in a WiFi extender to use your broadband from your home or simply use your mobile internet via a portable dongle.

Whatever way you decide to transform your shed, check out our full range of sheds on MAP Garden Furnishings. With such a variety to choose from, we're positive you'll find something to suit you.
