11 Shed Storage Ideas To Declutter Your Space
1. Invest in a Quality Storage Shed
If you don’t have a shed or if yours is in disrepair, invest in a quality one that is large enough and will last!
If you don’t already own a shed or yours is too small or in disrepair, the first thing that you should do is invest in a high quality shed that will last and will meet your needs.

You can even get your portable building customized to match your home and you can choose whatever size and design you like. Classic will also give you the option to add in handy shelving, tool organizers, or a workbench to give you an additional helping hand with your shed storage.
2. Use a Magnetic Board for Hanging Metal Objects & Tools
You may have seen magnetic bars used in kitchens to store your knives, but this great little trick works well for shed storage too. You probably have a large number of metal items such as gardening and other tools that will easily cling to a magnetic surface. This great idea comes from LifeStorageBlog.
3. Make a Simple Shelf for Long-Handled Tools
Even a first-time do-it-yourselfer could make this simple yet very effective wooden shelf, especially with these easy-to-follow instructions from the Family Handyman. This shelving unit is perfect for keeping all of your long-handled tools and equipment organized. It would even work well for storing hockey sticks!

While you’re in the do-it-yourself mode don’t stop with just a shelf. You can also make this handy screwdriver rack. It will take up a small amount of your shed’s wall space, but you will never again have to endlessly dig through your tool box to find the right screwdriver. HGTV gives you all the instructions that you need to finish this clever shed storage project here.
5. Hang Up Your Long Cords
Are your long cords and hoses in a tangled mess in your storage shed? Well here is a simple solution to get them off the ground or out of the corners and free of tangles. Simply hang them up from your rafters using long nails or hooks. If you don’t want then hanging from your ceiling, you can just hang them on one of your walls instead. This great, inexpensive shed storage idea comes from LifeStorageBlog.
6. Get Cubbies for Toys and Sports Equipment
If you need to store your children’s outdoor toys or even sporting equipment inside your shed, a cubby unit is the way to go. You can either purchase one, or, if you are feeling a bit more ambitious, you can try making one yourself like this great example from the Family Handyman. We especially like this example because the angled bottoms make for easy access to grab and put away anything inside each section.
7. Install a Peg Board

There’s nothing like a pegboard for organizational versatility. You can move around and adjust your hooks as you need to and as your storage needs change. Here’s a great idea from HGTV for storing your gardening gloves and small tools using a wicker basket hung on a peg board. It’s handy and it looks super cute too.
8. Don’t Forget Your Outside Walls
If you’ve truly run out of space inside your shed, you can also use the outside walls for extra storage if your shed is made of wood like this example from LifeStorageBlog. You can hang up the tools that you use most often so they are easily accessible including your garden hose. If you’re not sure you would like the look, install the hooks on a back wall that can’t be seen from the rest of your yard.
9. Get Some Drawers
Installing a unit with drawers is an excellent shed storage idea. Drawers are great because they slide out so you can easily access any item that you have stored in the back and you can see with one quick glance what you have inside. You can either purchase a storage unit with drawers or you can try your hand at making one with these helpful instructions from the Family Handyman.
10. Use Clothespins for Hangers

Learn how to make your own clothespin clip board from Sadie Seasongood and you’ll always be able to find your gloves, scarves and hats.
11. Get a Potting Bench or Work Bench
If you do a lot of gardening then a potting bench is a great idea to help keep all of your gardening supplies in one location as well as giving you a spot to pot and re-pot your plants. If your are more of a handyman then a work bench can also provide you with a similar place to organize your tools and supplement your shed storage.
