Much like the home, I find the longer I leave the design of my garden shed the same the sicker of the design I get. The interior can quite easily go stale so I like to change things up fairly regularly to keep it nice and fresh and also so it is a place that I want to spend a lot of time. There are a plethora of choices available to you when decorating the shed – both interior and exterior.
You might have let your garden shed get a bit old and overgrown over the years but now is certainly the time to turn it into an attractive oasis away from the hustle and bustle of life. I want mine as a way of relaxing in silence with a good book, while others might want to use it as an entertainment hub. The good thing with a garden shed is it is so versatile.
Decide on what you want out of a shed
Before making any decisions on what interior to go for when redecorating your wooden shed, it is important to work out what you want to use it for. Each and every shed will have a different purpose. Some might want to merely keep some tools in it, while others want a getaway from the home than isn’t too far away. Whichever it is will play a big role in deciding how you decorate the space.
For relaxation keep everything light and neutral
As I stated earlier, I like to have a place of Zen in which I can sink into a comfortable sofa and immerse myself in a great book. I’m one of those people that can’t really do that if I’m reading around the house with other people coming and going, so this is where the shed comes in perfectly. If this is what you want then look at the great range of wooden sheds that Waltons has to offer.
I would try and go with light hues like mint green or cream alongside a comfortable sofa with decorative cushions. That way you can just sink into the chair without a care in the world.
Choose a theme
Another way to go with this decorating is to pick a particular theme and then add items and styles accordingly. How do you want your garden shed to feel? Try and pick out colours and emotions that you want your shed to evoke and then work towards that.
There are a number of themes to choose from the more traditional log cabin and English cottage, to something a little left field in a Japanese tea house style or nautical or naval theme.
Don’t forget to accessorise
No look is truly complete without some accessories in place and although much of this will depend on the style or theme you have chosen, there are still some winning accessories that can be incorporated into almost any design. First up, why not put some shutters or blinds in that not only look stylish, but also provide some break from the sun light for when you are reading on a summer’s afternoon.
Hanging old garden tools on the walls is also a stylish look that many people are going for these days. Just remember, you don’t need to rush in and do absolutely everything at once, take your time and make sure you get each part exactly right for you.
