Design of Outdoor Storage Sheds and House Design - Remember that these structures are not merely for storing things away. In addition to their usefulness, the appearance of outdoor storage sheds affects the overall appearance of the property on which they are installed. As such, the unit you choose should be of a design that complements your home. Select one with a rustic design (for instance, board and batten) for a country-style house. If your house's style is more formal, select an outdoor storage shed with formal features to match (for instance, if your house has an arched window, carry the theme over to your outbuilding).
If the clutter on your property says one unit isn't enough, but your wallet disagrees, supplement your main unit with one of the less expensive, smaller models. There are three main types of such units, all of which go by descriptive names. $Corner sheds$ are made to fit precisely into a corner and run about 3 feet tall by 3 feet wide by 2 feet deep. Meanwhile, either a $vertical shed$ (5 x 3 x 4) or a $horizontal shed$ (3 x 5 x 4) may be just the handy outdoor storage building to fill your need for additional space.
