 Qualities to look for in a garden shedWith people spending more time at home than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic, thoughts have shifted to how best to utilise your space during the summer months. This has seen a surge in popularity of the garden shed, with many people adapting to the “new normal” that is upon us. So, as the shed experts, after all, we thought we would help you come to a decision on a shed that will last you for years to come.

Robust and sturdy wood

Like anything you are looking to purchase, you are going to want to buy a wooden shed in the knowledge that it is able to stay standing and survive the wear and tear that it will inevitably go through. The biggest test to a shed’s condition is the temperamental weather, especially in the UK! With this in mind, you should look to purchase a shed that has strong wood that will be able to withstand the wet and windy.

Here at Solid Sheds, all of our garden sheds are 100% pressure treated and have tongue & groove roof cladding and flooring equipped. This should give you peace of mind that you have bought a building that is here to stay, so you can enjoy the leisure and luxury it offers for many years to come.

Sufficient space

As little as 20 – 30 years ago, garden sheds were simply known as an area to store all of the garden tools that were too big to store in the house, saving your home precious storage space as a result. But as we have moved towards the modern day, innovation has taken over and more and more sheds are being used as a focal point of family entertainment instead of being discarded until garden jobs need to be done. For this reason, sheds have inevitably got bigger and better, so if you are looking for a garden office shed or a garden summer house then you should keep this in mind.

If making your shed into a space that can keep the whole family entertained all year long, then you should look to measure up accordingly so you can make the most of your new garden retreat.

To window or not window?

If you are on the lookout for a small garden shed that has a primary use of being a garden item store, then it might not be necessary to pay the extra costs of adding windows to your shed. But, if it’s use extends further than this then you may want to add windows to your shed to allow natural light to flow into the room, enhancing its look.

We often find that large windowed doors are better suited to garden office sheds or summer houses which can benefit greatly from the natural light of a summers day to give you an inspiring area to work or relax.
