5 Tips To Create The Perfect Shed Study

Finding a quiet place to work in peace can often be a difficult task in the hustle and bustle of family life. If you’re someone who works from home, owns their own business or is just looking for a private place to study- a wooden garden office is the ideal solution for you. Having a designated space like this is sure to make you much more productive and generally happier and healthier.

Taking the leap of deciding to incorporate a home office into your back garden might be easier than you think. Custom Garden Offices from SolidSheds are built by hand in their purpose-built factory and includes treatment, delivery and erection service. Here are our 5 tips to creating the perfect study shed:

Define the Use

Bespoke Garden Offices from SolidSheds come in a wide range of sizes and models. You may even decide to purchase a summer house or workshop and transform it into your very own garden office. Customise the building to your needs by deciding on the placement of doors and windows. Make all the changes you like as your purpose-built garden shed is entirely designed by you!

Make sure you know what you want to use the room for, so you can account for the space your desk, storage units or craft table may take up.

Connect your Shed

Depending on how you are using your garden office shed, it may be essential to make sure you get connected. At SolidSheds, we would recommend connecting your shed to the mains power rather than using a daisy chain of extension leads to keep your devices charged. The lighting options coupled with the heating & cladding properties make your new workspace comfortable all year round. You’ll probably find yourself spending more time in your outdoor office shed than you expected!

One of the most important considerations to make when debating a garden office is the internet connection. The likelihood is that you are going to need a strong internet connection when working in your new outdoor office so make sure its possible. There are a variety of options to get a good connection, from a point-to-point system or an ethernet cord running from your house.

Personalised Space

Ensuring that your shed study is comfortable and practical is vitally important, but it’s also crucial to make your new office space attractive. If you don’t, you’ll never want to spend any time in there! An increasingly popular interior design option is recycling furniture I the home and giving it a new lick of paint. This can be a fantastic, inexpensive way to furnish your garden home office.

Adding wall art and plants can give your modern garden office a homely feel, you may even want to lay carpet to make your new workspace that extra luxurious touch.

Stay Bright

Working in a well-lit space with ample natural daylight can improve creativity and learning. Carefully plan where you would like to put your office to take full advantage of the sunlight.  Good lighting during the evenings and winter months will help you to work more efficiently, while reducing the strain on your eyes. Haivng natural light to capture your office building will also save you money on electricity!


Although you want the main purpose of your garden office to be a place where you go to work, its important for your productivity to install a comfy seating area where you can relax. Everyone needs breaks and distinguishing an area where you go for them is an excellent way to stay on top of your work. Chill out on the sofa, with a cup of coffee and let your mind be at rest.
