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).
Keep Shovels Standing- Shovels, rakes and other landscaping tools can end up anywhere in the shed, but can be a hazard if you're walking around. Without a proper place, these tools just thrown about can become an easy way for you or others to trip and fall. Not to mention, they become hard to find. But with so many awkward shapes, how can you fit them neatly? One solution is to screw a standing pallet into the wall of your shed. Now, you've created vertical storage to easily keep items off the ground.
