You shouldn’t doubt the potential of your shed, for many it’s a retreat, a quite and private space just enough away from home. Yet these multipurpose structures don’t have to be reserved for tools and lawnmowers. From small wooden sheds to larger sheds and workshops, take a look at some of the ingenious and downright creative uses of sheds we’ve seen.

An Office
The distractions of home make finding a place where you can study, work, write or read hard indeed. The garden shed with a little bit of insulation and home comforts goes a long way to boosting your productivity.

Music Room
It doesn’t take much to soundproof your shed if you like your music loud. Whether it’s the kids practising their instruments, or a Sunday enjoying those old familiar records, you won’t have to worry about disturbing anyone else. Or anyone disturbing you.

The Bar
The dream, install a bar, swap the hedge trimmers for martini glasses, the shovel for spirits, what’s not to love? Add some mood lighting, some comfy furniture, some good tunes, and you’ll never want to leave the shed again! You’ll be able to enjoy and host garden parties without having to worry about the rain!

Games room
While your shed might not be big enough for a pool table, or even table football, there’s plenty of room to play a few rounds of cards, or create a cosy environment to play those family board games.

Teenage Hangout
All it takes is a few comfy chairs and maybe a TV, and you won’t be able to be able to pull your teenagers out of the shed. Probably for the best, the house stays quiet and they get their own space. Don’t be cleaning their mess up though; they might learn a valuable lesson in tidying up!
