With limited space in the house, garden sheds provide additional storage for both garden goods and seasonal decorations. There has been a growing movement to convert garden sheds into little bars, outdoor cinemas, garden rooms, or office space. With garden rooms growing in popularity, many homeowners are keen to save money and transform existing outbuildings into dream setups. But whatever you plan to do with your garden shed, you have to ditch the rubbish first.
Why You Should Clean Out Your Garden Shed
The garden shed can easily spiral out of control as it becomes a catchall for all the junk you’re hoarding because you just can’t bear to throw it out. Having a clear-out is good for your mental health and overall well-being. Clutter is stressful, even if it’s in the shed. You will feel more in control of your life and more energised when you tackle clutter indoors and out.
Clearing out is also a great way to be a more organised person. You want your home to be clean and tidy, why should your garden shed be any different? There is a dread to mowing the lawn or looking out Christmas decorations because you know just how disorganised and messy the shed is. So, let’s start fresh!
Easy Ways To Tidy Your Tools, Bits, and Pieces
Bookcases are one of the most efficient ways to tidy up tools, bits, and pieces. The shelves provide ample space to easily organise everything you keep in your shed so it’s easy to grab. There can be a shelf for paint and brushes, another for each power tool, and others for screws, nuts, and bolts. Even if it’s just a spot to house your various toolkits.
Pegboard is an excellent way to hang your smaller power tools and larger manual tools, such as hammers, pliers, and mallets. Alternatively, you can build a tool cabinet and use pegboard to back it so you get hanging space and shelving. Baskets and containers on a wall panel are also an excellent way to store items.
If you’re dealing with unusual shapes or sizes of tools, use plastic totes and simply label them at the front so you can clearly see what’s in there. Anything you decide to store in a tote or plastic container can be labelled for ultimate ease.
Mason jars are also an excellent way to store screws, nails, nuts, and bolts. If you have several cordless power tools, you can create a recharging station with their batteries and chargers. It’s an efficient way to make sure nothing goes missing.
There isn’t a magic formula to this, a lot of it comes down to the way you like to organise space and how you operate. If you’re a woodworker or love DIY, you want your tools easily accessible and you probably want a bit of space to work. If you’re more interested in storage space, then you will want to ensure easy access to the items you need most often. And if you’re looking for a ruthless clear-out to repurpose the garden shed into a brand new life, then don’t stop until it’s empty! You can bin, recycle, or sell everything you no longer need, and use a garden storage box for the essentials.
