When we think of storage sheds in Salt Lake City, we usually think of a place where we keep rakes, shovels, paint, and other odds and ends. But sheds have so many more uses beyond yard work and tools. If your shed is sitting in your backyard collecting cobwebs, it might be time for an upgrade to turn your shed into something you’ll actually use. Or, if you don’t have a shed because you don’t think it fits into your lifestyle, these ideas might inspire you.
Whether you’re a professional artist, an amatuer photographer, or you just love woodworking, a shed can be a great space for you to sink yourself into your work or hobbies. This is an especially good solution if you don’t have room in your home for any type of permanent workspace. If your sewing machine and fabrics are always tucked away in a closet and you have to unpack and pack up your materials every time you use them, will you really be able to get into a creative flow? Sheds provide the perfect place to not only store your materials, but also to spread out a little and make a mess without disrupting the other parts of your life or other members of your household.
Especially if there are a lot of people living in your house, it may be difficult to find a good place to work out at home. Maybe your room is too small for you to follow along with your favorite Zumba video, or maybe people are constantly traipsing through the living room while you’re trying to breathe into your downward dog. Either way, transforming your shed into a workout spot allows you to have a semi-private space to blast music, sweat, and have a good time. Plus, you now have a place to keep all of your workout gear, freeing up some clutter or storage space in your home.
If you have a backyard pool, turning your shed into a pool house is a more affordable way to create the perfect country club experience right at home. You can store towels, sunscreen, outdoor furniture, and other pool accessories, while also providing a place to change into and out of a swimsuit. You can even have the pool house wired so you can have a mini fridge stocked with chilled summer drinks. This is an especially good project if you have kids and don’t want them dragging their soggy swimsuits and towels all over the house.
Another great way to transform your shed if you have kids is to turn it into a playhouse. Not only will it be the perfect storage space for toys, games, and crafts, but it will also keep messes out of the way (for the most part). This is a good option for parents who are tired of tripping over legos in the living room or scrubbing stains out of the furniture. No extra space in the house for a playroom? No problem.
