A tidy and well organised shed is without a doubt the ultimate symbol of garden pride. With that in mind, we’ve got our resident shed heads together to come up with 6 easy tips to help you to maximise your space and keep your shed tidy all year round.
Set aside an afternoon, make yourself a cuppa, and take an inventory of every item you have in your shed and make a note of where you keep it. Knowing where it is will save you a lot of time in the future.
Whilst taking your inventory with pin point accuracy, have a think about what you use regularly (and more importantly, what you don’t). Get rid of old or surplus tools and maximise that space.
During the winter, wet weather can harm your tools. The best way to protect them from damage is to keep them away from walls and in durable boxes. Air tight boxes will prevent rust build-up.
Most shed-based tools have some form of metal on them. Use this to your advantage by having magnetic strips across your shed walls, holding your kit in place. Having your paintbrushes, hammers, saws or trowels all within easy reach and ready to go at any moment will not only save you time but a lot of space.
“The shelf in the room has been so true” according to the 1997 hit from ‘Days of the New’. If you fancy making your shelving solution even more effective, try out adjustable shelving. These handy shelves mean you can customise your layout from day-to-day.
Most shed doors have enough surface area to be used as an entire wall. You can attach hooks or shelving to the door to hold anything you would not normally have the space for.
Storage space can be found in the most unusual places. We hope our advice helps you on your way to storage serendipity.
