Decor ideas for your garden shed

For many homeowners, the garden shed is strictly utilitarian. It offers additional storage space and security for tools and garden equipment. But for others, it doubles as an entertainment space where they can host guests, or unwind in their downtime. Some people use their garden sheds as a home office.

If you’re wondering how to decorate small garden sheds, Sydney experts can guide you. The style of decor depends on what you’re using the shed for. It might be some themed seasonal styling for the holidays, or it may be more about making the shed comfortable for work or relaxation. If it’s seasonal, you might just want a tree and some tinsel.

But if your interior decorating project is about making the space more livable, it’ll be more oriented towards furnishing and accessories. One suggestion is to turn your shed into a cosy little house. You don’t necessarily have to use it for domestic purposes.

Even if it’s an essential store for your tools, you can install a colourful door and some window shutters. They add to the aesthetic value of your yard. Here at Col Western Sheds, we have pre-fab units that have colourful detail on the windows, doors, and roofing.

Landscaping is another exciting decor feature. If you have windows, you can dress them with potted plants and vines. If you don’t have a window, you can install a trellis and use it to support your plants. A lattice is also an attractive way to fence your shed. You could set it up on the shed boundary and fill it in with vines and creepers to create a privacy screen.

Colour is a significant factor in décor as well, and our sheds come in colours ranging from off-white to Caulfield green, and you can add more colour to your walls with decorative flower pots and ornaments. If you’d like some additional counter space, you can build a desk on the side of the shed and put plants on it, or use it as a work surface.

Shed lighting has a dual role. It’s functional as well as decorative. When you’re looking for fixtures for your garden shed, we have a wide variety. You could select coloured lights, string lights, or floodlights that bathe the whole area. You could also install accent lights that draw attention to specific areas of your shed decor, like a fountain.

Antiques and shed furniture can vastly enhance the decor of your shed. You can arrange them on the shed porch, or inside the shed if you have room. You can also add a touch of class to your shed by installing stylish outdoor furniture or putting up a water feature like a fountain or a pond.

Paving stones and footpaths add character to your shed and make it easier to weed and keep the yard well-tended, which adds to the overall design of your outdoor area. Natural stone is a useful option and gives your yard an elegant look.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service
