Alternative Uses for Your Garden Shed

Posted on by Sunningdale Timber

Many garden sheds are treated as simple storage facilities for a variety of gardening equipment and a collection of dusty outdoor toys. But the humble shed has so much more potential than that, and in the UK it has a proud history of providing an escape from the bustle of domestic life.

So here are a few suggestions of slightly more imaginative uses for your garden shed:


There’s no rule that says your shed has to be full of tools and spiders webs. Instead, you could clear it out and install a comfy seat and your choice of TV, music player or just a good book and make it a secret getaway to enjoy some time to yourself.

Pet Kennel

Whether you like to keep rabbits, guinea pigs or even chickens, a shed can convert into the perfect space to keep your pets. With room to move around freely, a shed will protect them from the elements and also from the threat of neighbourhood predators.


If your hobbies involve making a bit of mess, the idea of getting everything out and then packing away again afterwards can be enough to put you off in the house. Using your shed as a workshop means that you will have a dedicated space where any accoutrements can be stored without intruding into your wider living space.

Here at Sunningdale Timber we design and manufacture a whole range of high quality structures that can help you to make the most of your garden space. Whatever use you have in mind for your shed in Leicester or the surrounding area, we can suggest the perfect thing. So call us today on 0116 231 2876 or fill in our online contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
