5 Innovative Uses for a Shed

Contrary to popular belief, backyard sheds are not just for storing your gardening tools and equipment. Here are some of the most unique and innovative uses for a backyard shed.

Home Gym

If you’re a fitness buff and your home is already filled to the brim with fitness equipment, why not build a shed in your yard and transform it into your very own home gym? Not only will this help remove clutter in your house, but it will also help encourage other members of your family to stay fit and active as it gives them easy access to your gym equipment.

Art Studio

One of the most creative ways to use a shed is to build a makeshift art studio. Whether you’re a painter or a sculptor, having your own art studio will give you the privacy you need to get the creative juices flowing, plus you’ll have your own space where you can safely store your art supplies.


If DIY projects and woodworking are more your thing, you can transform your backyard shed into a workshop. Depending on the size of the shed, you can fit all sorts of equipment and tools in your workshop and even install some shelving and a workbench to maximise available space.

Home Spa

Here’s another fun and creative use for your shed. If you love going to a spa, but your budget or busy schedule prevents you from doing so, why don’t you make one in your backyard? These days, you can easily purchase blow-up instant spa baths. Fit one into your shed, and voila, you have your own spa at home. Add some accessories, relaxing lighting and scents for extra relaxation.

Games Room

Whether you have kids or you’re a kid at heart, a games room provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to bond and have a good time. You can fit a TV, a Playstation or Xbox and/or a classic pool table. The options are endless!
