3 Ideas for Designing a Backyard Shed

 
If you've ever wanted to create extra living space in your backyard, a shed with rooms might be your best option. In fact, a backyard shed can be transformed into far more than just a storage space - you can create an office, guest room, art studio, or any other type of cozy retreat.
 
Whether you choose to build a shed yourself or opt for a prefab shed, here are some ideas to make it work for you:
 

Rustic Retreat

The rustic-style decor is perfect for making a modern shed cozy and charming. Use distressed wood finishes and rugged textures like leather, wool, and burlap. 
 
Try including repurposed items or vintage finds from thrift stores to save money on chic shed designs.
 

Outdoor Lounge

If you have the room, expand your shed space with a simple wooden deck. You can create a mini outdoor living or entertaining space by adding cozy seating and surfaces for food and drink. 
 
Include twinkling string lights and lanterns for an outdoor vibe that's whimsical and warm. Or, build a faux fireplace with candles to turn up the heat.
 

Garden House

Create the combination potting station and greenhouse in your own backyard by converting a shed into a gardening sanctuary.
 
Include the perfect potting bench and maximize natural light for the ideal indoor garden. You can store your garden tools and supplies while growing container plants in a secluded spot all your own.
