Garden Sheds

The following are 8 inspiring garden shed ideas to help you choose a design that would be perfect for your backyard. We start with what we consider the best made, highest quality sheds on the market.

1. Quaker Garden Shed

Why It Makes The List:

If you want the best quality, beautifully crafted outdoor shed on the market, look no further. This quaint Quaker-style garden shed has so many great extra features like double barn doors with decorative trim and a handy access ramp leading up to them. The ramp is so lightweight that it can be easily lifted and stored inside your shed when you are not using it. Whether you choose a metal or shingled roof, the price is still the same and ridge vent ventilation is standard on all buildings so you don’t have to pay extra for it. One look at the heavy duty standard door handles and 16-inch center studs will let you know how much better built Classic Building sheds are than pre-fab.

Main Takeaway:

It is so incredibly easy to own this garden shed especially since the company offers a great “Rent-To-Own” option with payments as low as $85 per month. They even provide financing and most people qualify for $0 money down. Click here for more information.

Why It Makes The List:

The best materials, the best craftsmanship, at the best price: that sums up this next quality garden shed. This attractive garden shed will make the perfect storage place for all of your gardening tools and equipment. The large 24″ X 27″ aluminum window will allow for plenty of natural light for your seedlings and for you to work in. The ample double doors provide plenty of space for easily storing and removing larger articles like your riding mower.

Main Takeaway:

This garden shed is cleverly designed so that it can be simply converted into a workshop where the handyman in your family can store all of their tools and equipment.

Why It Makes the List:

This shed just screams English country garden and the individual panes of the oversized window let in lots of sunlight while maintaining an old-world charm. If you like color, and most gardeners do, then painting your shed an earthy red tone like the one above will give you the pop of color you crave while still blending in well with the organic tones of your garden.

Main Takeaway:

If you are a gardener, you will understand the importance of having plenty of natural light to give your plants and seedlings a great start before you transplant them outside, so this shed with its over-sized window is the next best thing to having an actual greenhouse.

4. Better in Blue?

Why It Makes the List:

If red is not your thing, but you still like color, then the slate blue of this next shed would be a great choice. The contrasting white scalloped trim along the eaves and white trim around the doors and windows give this sweet garden shed a crisp yet charming character. It even boasts a lucky horseshoe over the doorway.

Main Takeaway:

Your garden shed doesn’t have to look boring! Adding a bit of color to the walls and trim and planting foliage around it will actually make it become an attractive focal point in your garden instead of a storage eyesore.

5. Garden Castle

Why It Makes the List:

 This shed has tons of character. We love the castle theme and the rather unusual shape to this garden shed that is used as a great place to get together with some close friends. The beautiful stained glass windows on the wooden slat doors are a lovely feature and the addition of a pot-bellied stove ensures that the party can go on into the wee hours even as the temperature drops.

Main Takeaway:

Garden sheds do not have to be reserved for just your gardening tools. They can also be used as an additional outdoor meeting space. This shed just might start a new saying – “A man’s garden shed is his castle.”

6. Cozy Corner

Why It Makes the List:

This lovely corner shed beautifully nestles into and makes the most of the tight corner space in this smaller backyard.  The soft cream color is a lovely complement to the surrounding greenery and gorgeous stone patio. This cozy outdoor room will make a wonderful getaway when you need a little “alone” time or a place for you and some old friends to catch up.

Main Takeaway:

If you are short on space in your garden that doesn’t mean that you have to forego the idea of having a garden shed hideaway. With a clever corner design, even the tiniest of gardens can have room for this cute addition.

7. Hobbit Hideaway

Why It Makes the List:

Let’s face it, this style of garden shed isn’t for everyone. But if you are looking for a truly unique design, that speaks to your inner hobbit, this is the perfect choice for you. Despite its rather twisted and uneven appearance, this garden cottage is actually very solidly constructed with its stone veneer foundation.

Main Takeaway:

If you have a passion for fantasy, you can let that shine through in your choice of garden shed style. If your style is anything but standard and rectangular, you’ll love this rather quirky and whimsical design.

8. Small Spaces

Why It Makes the List:

Sometimes you need a little more storage space but you don’t want to invest in a full-sized garden shed. This tiny model has a small footprint but is certainly big on appearance. The lovely pine wood structure with plenty of windows will make a great place for storing your gardening supplies as well as give you lots of extra light for nurturing your seedlings.

Main Takeaway:

You can choose the size of shed that makes the most sense for you. The biggest one is not always the best choice. A smaller shed may more than meet all of your storage requirements without taking up too much extra space in your garden.
