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).
Organize For the Season - Now that you know what's staying in your shed, you must consider when you use the items. You don't want to move a stack of gardening tools just to get to the snow shovels you'll need in the winter. If possible, dedicate one side of the shed to warm-weather specific equipment and the other to cold-weather equipment. This will alleviate any confusion on where items are and save yourself plenty of time when working.
