The small touches make a difference. Some outdoor storage buildings come with French doors or cupolas. You, yourself can add touches such as window boxes, shutters, or weathervanes. Remember, you'll have to look at this outdoor storage building every day of your life for the foreseeable future: Your attention to detail could make the difference between eyesore and eye-opener. On a more practical note, purchase or build a pressure-treated ramp for easy access to your outdoor storage building.
Garden supplies tend to end up everywhere, especially if you do any potting in your shed. Always make sure to have a clean surface to work on. Old crates work well to hang from your potting area, where you can put small bags of soil, pots and watering cans. For seeds and other loose items, hang a ribbon and attach clothes pin. As you get small packets of seeds, use the clothespins to hang from the ribbon, taking down as needed. This keeps them organized and out of your workspace, so you can make the most of your gardening.
