Why look at Quality Sheds? Begin Your Journey to a Tidier Home


Ever felt like your home's space isn't quite keeping up with your life's pace? We've all been there. Stuff piles up, and suddenly, your living space feels more like a jumble sale. This kind of environment can make your daily life stressful and chaotic — which is no way to live.

That’s why today we’re talking about the potential that a backyard storage shed brings to your home and your ability to live a more simplified, organized life. Imagine having all your bits and bobs, hobby supplies, tools, knick-knacks, and cherished keepsakes just a few steps away, neatly arranged and protected. By the end of this blog, you'll see exactly why a quality storage shed isn't just a purchase; it's the beginning of a clutter-free life. Let's tidy up together!

Decluttering 101

The process of getting control of your home’s clutter doesn’t have to be overwhelming. We’ll break down your organization tasks into three easy steps to get you started. 

1. Do a Deep Clean of Your Home

Rule number one of decluttering? Don't run before you can walk. Take the time to give your home a good scrub and take note of the spaces that you have available to you. Use this time to think about unused — or maybe underused — spaces such as closets, storage areas, etc. where you could make better use of the available square footage. Zone into one room at a time, breaking the mess into manageable chunks. 

2. Consider the Critical Decluttering Questions 

While it’s important to keep your space clean and organized, there is no reason to take the time to organize items that you no longer want or need. Save yourself the time and energy by decluttering — throwing away, recycling, or donating — any unused items and get them out of your way for the rest of the process. 

To do this, try asking yourself these questions: 

  • How often do I actually use this?
  • What value does it bring into my life?
  • Why am I hanging onto this?
  • Can I easily replace it?
  • Do I have something else like it?

By asking these questions and making yourself really stop to consider if the thing, whatever it is, is worth keeping and organizing, you’ll end up saving yourself a good amount of time that you would have spent sorting through unnecessary belongings. Now, they can be free to be used and loved by someone else.

3. Create a More Usable Space


You may be thinking, “How can I create more space in my home?” Well, many of us are not using our home spaces to their full potential. For example, how many of us just hang up clothes on hangers in our closets? The reality is that with some creativity and a few helpful tools, we can stretch the storage space of our closets with bins, baskets, hangers that can double the space, etc. 

A few of the best ways to make the most of your space include installing shelving to maximize the unused vertical space. Multipurpose furniture is a great way to do this as well. Maybe you use a storage ottoman to keep extra pillows and blankets out of the way or a set of extra chairs that can stack into one another to take up less space when stored. If you are willing to think creatively, there are so many creative ways to take up less floor (and wall) space in your home. 

The best way to increase your home’s storage space is to consider investing in a portable storage shed to go in your backyard. This not only increases the square footage that you have available to use in your home but can do so in the most convenient way possible. All of your stored belongings are only a few steps away. You can’t beat the convenience factor of a backyard storage shed. 

The Best Reasons to Buy a Portable Shed

Investing in a quality shed is a smart move for so many reasons. Whatever you need extra space for, a portable shed can make it possible in a budget-friendly way. A shed serves as an extension of your garage, providing additional space without the hefty price tag of a full-on addition to your home. Not only does it offer a shield for your belongings from rain, wind, and sun, but it's also a convenient solution that won't break the bank. With the ease of access it provides, it's like having a second garage that's just as secure. Plus, the extra space you gain is invaluable — it's the breathing room your home needs, allowing you to store your items safely and retrieve them easily whenever required.

Make the Most of Your Shed Investment

If you’re going to spend the money on a quality shed, make sure that you’re maximizing the space. Here are a few ways to get started: 

Crates for Extra Storage

Crates might just be the MVP of shed organization. The beauty of crates is their versatility — they can be easily stacked to make use of vertical space, making your shed look like a well-organized shop. Plus, their rustic charm adds a touch of style to the utilitarian vibe of any shed. Label them for extra points in organization and ease of finding things.

Store Nails & Screws in Jars

For the little things that always seem to vanish when you need them most — like nails and screws — clear jars are a game-changer. By dedicating a jar to each size and type, you’ll never have to sift through a jumbled drawer again. Line them up on a shelf, and you've got a wall of see-through storage that's as effective as it is aesthetically pleasing. It's an organizational strategy that keeps everything within sight and much easier to find in a pinch.

Power Tool Storage Rack

Your power tools are the heavy lifters of all your DIY projects, so they deserve a special spot in your shed. A sturdy rack dedicated to your drills, saws, and sanders keeps them out of the way but within reach. No more rummaging through boxes or moving piles around to find your jigsaw. A well-organized tool rack can save you time and frustration, plus it can extend the life of your tools by keeping them properly stored and protected.

Gardening Tote

For those who love to dig in the dirt, a gardening tote is essential. Think of it as your go-to garden kit. Fill it with your hand tools, seed packets, gloves, and shears, and you're all set for a spontaneous gardening session. Having a dedicated tote means you can store it right by the shed door, grab it on your way out, and get straight to work. 

Keep Your Outdoors Looking Nice

Once your storage shed is comfortably nestled in its new home, it's time to extend that sense of order and style to the rest of your yard. Here are some tips to make your outdoor space as inviting as your newly decluttered living areas.

Spruce Up the Landscaping

With the shed in place, the rest of your yard deserves some TLC. Regular maintenance is key—mow the lawn, trim the edges, and clear out the weeds to enhance the overall neatness of your space. A well-kept landscape complements your shed and creates a serene backdrop for your outdoor activities.

Accentuate with Flowers

Flowers are nature's paintbrush, adding splashes of color and life around your shed and across your yard. Plant a variety of blooms in pots or flower beds to brighten the area and draw the eye. These vibrant accents not only cheer up any corner but also serve as a lovely border that can help integrate your shed into the outdoor setting.

Embrace Local Plant Life

Beyond flowers, consider planting native shrubs and greens. They'll settle in effortlessly and require less fuss, letting you enjoy their natural beauty without the extra work. Positioning these plants around your shed can also help it blend into the landscape, making the entire yard feel cohesive and well-designed.

With your shed in place, you have the perfect opportunity to enhance your yard to match. A thoughtful approach to landscaping and plant selection can turn the entire outdoor area into a harmonious extension of your home, with each element, from the practical to the ornamental, playing its part in creating a delightful and cohesive space.
