5 Tips for Upgrading Your Garden Shed
1. Choose your Color of Shingles
Pick your desired color of shingles. While the choice of colors that shed manufacturers offer may vary, in this example you can choose from black, dark brown, driftwood, light brown and white shingles.
2. Choose Foundation Options
Next, choose your foundation options such as treated plywood flooring, metal ramps, portable ramp, wood ramp and metal augers. Feel free to paint the flooring to add even more style.
3. Add Shelves and Workbenches
Shelves are very useful to store tools and other equipment. They reduce clutter while making any garden shed organized. You can even paint the shelves to add your unique touch. If you plan on working inside your shed, a workbench is essential.
This is the most important part of a beautiful garden shed design. Windows let in natural light into your shed and add visual appeal. Flower boxes allow owners to add a colorful selection of flowers to their shed. Adding windows, shutters and flower boxes makes any garden storage shed feel more like a home.
Every design expert would agree that every shed needs decorations. While many manufacturers will offer different types of shed decorations, adding a weather vane and a nice drip edge will add unique style and function to your garden shed.
