The garden shed is a valuable item in any garden so it’s surprising to see how many people just don’t think about them, plonking down a tiny little shed or putting up with something old, tired and just plain dilapidated. If you’re thinking about installing a garden shed, don’t just go with any old thing – install something modern and that does well in the trend stakes! Here are some ideas for you.

Prefabricated Sheds are King
One of the things that are currently topping the popularity stakes in terms of the garden shed is the prefabricated shed. Prefabricated sheds are essentially kit sheds that come in panel sections that you just put together. Everything you need is included, even detailed instructions! Prefabricated sheds are available in steel, timber, vinyl or plastic options but steel is by far and away the most preferred option. People are choosing prefabricated sheds as they are cost effective, suit their needs and they also are able to put up the shed in a weekend if they choose, making it a great DIY project.
Custom Made Sheds are Still Popular
Even though many people gravitate towards a prefabricated shed, custom made sheds are still high in the trend stakes as there are still people that are looking for a tailored shed solution to their property. Custom made sheds are popular amongst those that need something specific such as workshop space, a recreation area and so forth. Designing a custom shed also allows people to build the shed to fit their space so to speak. In fact, in many cases, custom sheds often end up looking like a miniature version of the main house!
Bigger is Better
If the room is available, people are definitely subscribing to the bigger is better option in garden sheds. Bigger garden sheds offer more storage space and flexibility as you don’t have to try and cram things into something tiny. Bigger garden sheds allow you to store your tools and equipment safely and also use the remaining space as you wish. For example you could use half of the shed for playing darts, for working on your car, or any of your other hobbies. Men in particular love it as they can use their shed as a “man cave”.
