In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some common ways many owners of double-wide sheds go about utilizing these spaces for storage. These extra-spacious areas are ideal for a variety of storage formats, from large items to many others, and these are often the primary purposes for which they're purchased.
At A-Shed USA, we happily provide Utah clients with a range of storage sheds, including our J-series storage sheds that have particularly large and wide dimensions. What are some other top ways our clients utilize these larger storage spaces for their needs? Here's a primer.
In some cases, storage won't actually be the primary use of a larger shed – it will serve as a playroom, craft space, or other kid-friendly zone. If this is the case, then leaving the shed door open can be an ideal situation for kids to playfully slip in among the boxes and shelves, rather than being locked away behind closed doors.
Even if there are large items that need to remain secure in the shed, it's still possible to use this space for child-friendly activities. If there are large garden tools or larger pieces of exercise equipment, for example, these can be moved out of the way to create a clean play area with toys and other fun items inside.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with using a double-wide shed for traditional forms of storage like garden supplies, tools, and hardware items. The wide doors give extra ease for maneuvering in larger objects, while the floor space is often large enough to accommodate both bulky kitchen appliances or outdoor patio furniture without overcrowding.
Double-wide sheds are also frequently used in colder climates to store snow blowers, shovels, rakes, and other gardening supplies, as well as bikes and other items that need secure storage in some climates.
Some households maintain elaborate holiday decorations, but these are only put up on the home for a few months of the year at the very most. It can be a challenge to find a way to store these decorations where they're secure, but yet easily accessible.
In the case of double-wide storage sheds, you'll have plenty of space for large items like artificial trees or outdoor inflatables as well as smaller holiday flowers and any other decorative elements without overcrowding. In many cases, the height of a J-series shed is high enough to allow for a handful of shelves above eye-level where you can display these decorations without having to lift them.
