Is a 10×16 shed right for you?

Do you need a space for your leaf blower, lawnmower, and gardening equipment? Are you concerned about storing your motorcycle, ATV, or another recreational vehicle outside? Do you want a separate space for your home office, home gym, or workshop? Do you wish your garage had more elbow room? If you have been asking these questions,  a 10×16 Shed may be the solution you are looking for!

Why should you consider a 10×16 shed versus a smaller size? If you are hoping to set up a workshop you will need shelving for tools, and supplies along with a bench for assembling projects. If you want to build an office or entertainment room, you will need space chairs, a sofa, and other furnishings. Or maybe you just need more storage. There is no denying that a backyard shed is a homeowner’s ultimate storage solution. You can store your lawnmower, tools, sports equipment, lawn furniture, seasonal decorations, and anything else that just eats up space. With 160 square feet of space, a 10×16 shed is a great option for more than just storage. We hope this guide helps you with your shed purchasing decisions.

Why get a 10×16 storage shed?

There are multiple reasons to purchase a 10×16 storage shed. Here are our top five.

Storage: We understand the frustration caused by excessive clutter. No one wants to stumble over the unused bike while retrieving the Christmas decorations from the back shelf in the garage. A backyard storage shed is an easy solution to help clear up the unnecessary clutter stuffed away in the attic or garage.

Safety: Think of the things you do not want in the house near the kids. Gas cans, pesticides, weed killer, and lawnmowers will be safer tucked away in a shed than if they are easily accessed in the garage. Storing your lawn care equipment in your shed removes the fire hazards, grass clippings, and other debris from your equipment out of your garage.

Workshop: If the year 2020 taught us anything, it’s that working from home is easily done. You can create your custom office space for you to focus on your work away from the distractions in the house. Or do you enjoy woodworking, painting, or music? A 10×16 shed is a great option to house your home studio! A 10×16 wooden shed is large enough to build your creative space where you will get things done! Customize with shelves, tables, and furniture. The possibilities are endless! 

Solitude: Do you need a place to escape? A wooden shed may not be the first option you think of when planning a game room. If you enjoy gaming, movies, or just lounging around, purchase a beautiful wooden shed and convert it into your dream gaming setup or home theater! If reading is your hobby, add a sofa, bookcase, and other cozy furnishings. You now have the perfect quiet space to kick back and relax! Converting a backyard shed into a man cave or she-shed gives you the escape you need while remaining at home.
