Create more storage space in the garden shed - ideas for more space and quality of life


If you open your garden shed and find the sheer chaos, you should do something quickly. With our ideas you provide more storage and living space.

© Bumann - Many use the garden house as additional living space and thus as a small oasis of wellbeing in the green. For others, however, the garden house is just a storage room for garden tools, flower bulbs, fertilizers and Co. And still others combine both. But this quickly becomes problematic, because there is not much space in a garden shed. The garden shed doesn't have much of an oasis of wellbeing anymore. But only if you don't know how to help. After all, there are enough solutions that provide more storage and living space in the garden shed. And this is exactly what we would like to introduce to you here in more detail.

Is your garden house simply too small to accommodate garden tools and also to sit comfortably? Then a tool shed as an extension would be worth considering. Finally, there are tool sheds that can be opened from several sides and “attached” to the garden shed. The tool sheds are small, but offer a lot of storage space. I saw such equipment sheds, for example, on The models with the add-on variant offer four times as much storage space as a comparable garden shed. But here, too, it is important that you keep your garden shed tidy to save space.

❍ shelves:

We all know that: if it suddenly starts to rain while gardening, the garden tools have to be stowed away quickly. "Fast" is the right term here, because it is not uncommon for the devices to simply find a place somewhere in the garden shed where there is a vacant place to put or put down. You do this once or twice and the oasis of wellbeing outdoors becomes a junk room without order.

To prevent it from looking messy quickly in the garden shed and you can no longer really relax there, you should integrate shelves in the garden shed. There you can find everything you need for gardening on a regular basis. But open shelves with tools are of course not very cozy. For more comfort, you can, for example, hide the shelves behind a decorative curtain. It doesn't take up a lot of space and also looks nice. For this it is recommended to use curtain rails or to mount a curtain rod on the ceiling.

Since rake, spade, hoe and Co. cannot be stowed on the shelf, trim strips with clips and hooks are an absolute must in the garden shed. Rakes and Co. can easily be hooked in here and do not stand around in the corner of the garden shed. You can also hide these trim strips behind a curtain, for example, or mount them on the door of the garden shed. The latter is particularly practical because you need a broom more often and have it so quickly at hand. Of course, you can easily build an order bar yourself. I have instructions for this e.g. found on

❍ Seating furniture with storage box:

If you want to sit comfortably in the garden shed, it is best to always choose seating that offers storage space. For example, for a garden bench with a storage box. How to kill two birds with one stone. You can sit comfortably and also stow cushions, garden accessories, etc. in it. The contents always remain dry and are aerated. I saw such a garden bench e.g. on Of course, there are also garden boxes with storage space that can be used as a table or stool. For example, I found a model in rattan and wood look with a useful volume of around 143 liters on

❍ loft bed:

Would you like to live in the garden shed and therefore also spend the night there? Then don't choose a normal bed, because that would take up too much space. Better opt for a loft bed. This not only saves a lot of space, it is also practical because you can e.g. can position a seating group.
