A chaotic environment provokes nothing but frustration. Not only is it sickening to look at but it also makes it difficult to search for whatever you need whenever you need it. On the contrary, tidiness creates peace, and organization is crucial for having materials at hand.
Unfortunately, many homes struggle with this issue. A possible solution to this is putting everything away in the garden shed, but even that could end up breeding chaos. So, here we present some shed storage ideas to make that transition seamless.
Take Advantage of Your Walls
Scattered objects not only make any room look messy, but they also make it impossible to move through it. So why not place those objects on the wall instead? This solution has been used for years, and it’s no surprise, considering its convenience and simplicity.
Set up some hooks to hang large tools and other useful equipment such as ropes, buckets, or chains. However, if you want to implement something more time-consuming (but worth the effort), add floating wooden shelves to store gardening supplies or adjustable shelving for different size gear.
Simple Garden Tool Holder
Do you happen to have a wooden pallet but can’t find any use for it? Now you do! A wooden pallet can be turned into a gardening tool holder, simply by placing it vertically against the shed wall. Put inside your shovels, garden forks, or any other large tool that you cannot find a place for.
What’s more, even if you don’t have one, you could purchase one since wooden pallets are quite economical. Also, you can paint it in your favorite color and make it look beautiful.
Install an Extra Shed
It is recommended to get rid of everything you don’t use. After all, keeping for the sake of keeping is hoarding, and hoarding is not healthy. But what if you do need every tool, gear, and equipment you have? What if getting rid of them is not possible? In that case, additional sheds are the perfect go-to solution. Deposit all those boxes, tools, and machinery in an extra space, so the original shed stops being a stockpile room.
Bear in mind that the extra shed doesn’t have to be huge. A few additional meters may be enough, but of course, it always depends on your needs.
Organize Tools With Drawer Organizers and Plastic Tubs
Be careful with this tip; you may misunderstand it. One thing is to rigorously organize each tool and supply in its correspondent drawer. Another thing is throwing everything in the first space you spot.
Drawers and plastic tubs must be classified under certain categories. Otherwise, they turn into a smaller scale of what you were trying to avoid.
For example, try to gather similar materials inside plastic compartments of the same color: red for screwdrivers, blue for brushes, yellow for screws and flat washers, and so on. If you want to simplify this task, add a note with the names of the tools and stick it to the drawer.
Choose the option that suits you best. What’s important here is that the contents of the boxes are well organized.
The convenience of a shed cannot be overstated. However, this outbuilding is not expected to work as an attic. Instead of piling up box after box, try to implement any of these storage ideas. Make it a place you’d be proud to show to your neighbors and friends.
