1. Cottage Style Garden Shed
Garden sheds do more than provide outdoor storage. They can create a comfortable workspace, provide a backdrop for prized plants, or deliver a destination where you can relax and entertain friends. This cottage garden shed serves as a sweet focal point amidst a whimsical garden. Its sunny yellow siding complements surrounding shades of green.
2. Salvaged Shed
Salvaged windows and barn-board siding lend vintage character to this garden shed. For even more personality, don’t be afraid to use a bold color for your garden shed. Because sheds are smaller, a bright hue like red will simply pop, rather than overwhelm, as it might on a larger house or garage.
3. Glass Garden Shed
This all-glass garden shed doubles as storage and a greenhouse area in colder months. A light and airy design like this works well in a yard where you really want the surrounding landscape to shine. Adding window boxes and gingerbread molding ensures the design leans homey, not austere.
4. Farmhouse Garden Shade
This backyard shed’s design is a nod to the property’s farmhouse. But beyond its charming shake siding, the design is practical and savvy. Many of the materials used to build the shed were salvaged from a home renovation. The shed can also be moved if needed, as it’s set on concrete piers on gravel and sand instead of a permanent foundation.
5. Rustic Shed
When considering your garden shed design, take your cues from its surroundings. Set among towering trees and winding stones path, this shed features weathered wood and traditional cottage design elements, fitting in its forest setting. The steely blue-gray door and shutters suit the design, while a glazed finish gives the features added dimension. Board and batten siding offers distinction to the garden shed’s simple form.
6. Modern Shed Design
This shed’s streamlined design nods to the modern century style. Strong white trim on the windows and doors emphasizes the garden shed’s strong angles. The overhanging roof creates the effect of a covered porch; metal flashing and a wood soffit bring a final flourish to the design.
7. Charming Cottage Shed
This garden shed matches its exuberant cottage garden surroundings. Architectural details, such as the scalloped trim, clapboard siding, window boxes, lace curtains, and weather vane make it the perfect focal point for the garden. Terra-cotta-colored roof shingles and a gray-blue exterior fashion a just-right color palette.
