Garden Tools

It almost feels like we’ve skipped autumn this year (thanks to that beautiful Indian summer at the beginning of October). Yet here we are with winter just around the corner, it’s time to prepare for the spring! If it’s colour you love tulips, crocuses and daffodils need to be planted now before the first frost. However now that the weather has turned working in the outdoors is not quite so appealing. That’s where the beloved garden shed comes in!

While we love the new craze for ‘doing up’ your shed (Channel 4’s Shed of the Year) has no doubt inspired many a makeover during the summer months. However in the winter they may not seem quite so cosy. Many people still need these shed space for practical uses such as planting bulbs, storing the lawnmower and garden furniture storage.

Turn your shed into a creative space (pt3)

Sheds Cheshire

In this series we’re exploring the potential of our garden retreats, the shed is a place for yourself without distraction. All it takes is a little imagination to make your shed the dream extension just a few meters from your back door.

Library
A quite place is hard to come by, between work and home it can be hard to catch a break. If books are your cornerstone and they’re your escape from day to day life, your own library would be the dream. With some slight renovations and insolation, your wooden shed can become an academia paradise. A few bookcases and a comfy chair is all you need to escape into your books.

Animal house
Winter can be a hard time for pets; your shed can provide a haven where they’re sheltered from the cold and wet winter. You wont have to worry about the house getting covered in mud or fur, and your pets can rule their own roost.

Wood storage
If you have your own log fire, a garden shed provides the perfect dry storage for a winter’s supply of wood. You can be assured that your fuel will keep dry throughout the cold months, helping you to keep your home toasty as the nights draw in.

Guesthouse
Probably the most adventurous and impressive use for your larger than usual shed, would be to create an extra bedroom for your guests. With some renovations and improvements, your shed could be fitted with water, heating and electricity, making an impressive addition to your house. You could even start a B&B!

Don’t hesitate to make use of that extra real estate you have in the garden! We’ve named but a few thing that your current or future shed might be capable of. Atlas Sheds Cheshire can provide a shed for whatever function you fancy. Make your shed a welcome retreat for yourself; make more room for your home and make more out of your garden.
