Outdoor benches are sometimes made to be dual-purpose, offering a compartment to store tools and a cozy spot for taking breathers while mowing the lawn. Potting sheds and small greenhouses are a boon to the true landscaping enthusiast. Some outdoor storage buildings come with large skylights and virtually function as greenhouses in their own right.
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).
