Most gardens have one, all lawn mowers need one, yet it’s often forgotten and left to fade into the background, blending in with the battered brown wooden fence.
We’re talking about the shed. Of course.
During the lockdown, many took the opportunity to turn their shed into a mini pub or a bar for a place to meet and socialize with family and friends. Others invested in YrPod garden office sheds for a place to work from home while keeping work and home life separate.
If you’re looking to give your garden shed a well-deserved makeover but have a limited budget or are unsure how to go about it, keep reading for some considered shed advice.

This transformation can be completed over one weekend, depending on the size of your shed, but it should be a job easy to do by yourself for under £50.
Brighten The Surrounding Area
Is your shed hidden by bushes or overgrown plants? Is it tucked into the corner of your garden by the big tree? If it’s treated as a garage, it will look like one! Dress your shed up with some funky string lights or garden lamps by the front door to make it seem inviting and warm.
To go one step further, add a table and chairs by the front door of your shed to give it a sense of purpose and encourage the family to spend more time around it. So that whether you’re turning it into a garden office shed or a place to socialize, you can create an inviting environment.
Turn It Into A Useful Space
