Menards Home Improvement Topic: "A storage shed is just the ticket!"

While you can do projects around the house to increase indoor storage, many homeowners are choosing to gain extra space by adding a storage shed.

Open up the living space inside your home

You can keep all the things you don’t use regularly outside and out of sight. This way you can reduce clutter and only keep daily necessities close by. You can even make a list of things that you only use on special occasions, keeping those things out-of-the way so they accessible only when you need them.

Clear room in your garage

Garages can be a good place to store things, especially yard equipment, but eventually it is easy to get carried away and let your stuff take over the entire space. This leaves little or no space for a car. Being able to park your car in the garage allows you to use the garage for its intended purpose and protect your vehicle from the elements, or even break-ins.

Hide unattractive equipment

Things like weed whackers, lawn mowers and other yard tools get in the way and are hard to store neatly or in an organized manner. Keeping these in a shed will ensure they are easy to get to while not attracting unwanted attention.

Organize your stuff

Instead of tearing through your house to search for something, you will know that certain equipment or items are stored in the shed for safekeeping in a neat, secure and efficient manner.

Keep your home clean

Often, items that go into your shed are things you use in the yard, or bulky objects that may collect dirt, grass and other debris over time like shovels, watering cans or lawn mowers. Even if the items are damp or wet, you can store them without having to be concerned about wiping down the floors or cleaning.

Sheds come in a variety of sizes, styles and models, most any being capable of satisfying your individual needs. Consider how nice it would be to have the extra space, plus how well it would help to keep things neatly organized and easy to access.
