With skyrocketing global population rates, humanity is currently facing scarcity in numerous natural and man-made resources. While water scarcity, food shortage, and lack of primary healthcare are and will be the most significant concerns for many, the importance of living spaces can not be overlooked. As we speak, the world is facing a population explosion that threatens to deplete resources even more.
In such circumstances, eco-friendly portable buildings are the best alternatives to constructing permanent structures. However, this endeavour should not only be practised on commercial sites but should also be a part of our everyday life. Let us take the example of our houses. Undeniably, living space becomes a considerable challenge when our families begin to grow or when we get frequent visits from relatives.
Moreover, our living spaces have been further decreased as we had to switch to remote work after the Covid -19 outbreak and devote rooms for work purposes. As a result, our houses have become too congested and fail to provide us with the leisure and cosiness we often crave, especially in winter. Our children are also heard complaining about a lack of playing space.
Indeed, expanding your house and adding more rooms is neither viable nor appealing (as discussed earlier). However, we have found an excellent DIY solution to this problem.
Why don’t you simply transform your portable storage shed into a cosy winter hideout? As an alternative, you can also turn them into play areas. But for today, let us concentrate on the former.
Through this blog, we shall enlighten you on how you can effectively save space, time, and money by turning your portable shed into an extra cosy space for winter.
Tips To Transform Your Dull-looking Shed Into A Warm And Cosy Winter Snuggling Space
Even though our main goal revolves around space and environment conservation, we can all agree that watching the same scenery of our houses gets annoyingly boring during the winter. At these times, we all wish we could relish a different scene from the normal for a break. Well, the steps mentioned below will serve all needs concurrently.
So whether you want to have a secluded spot to spend some quality time by yourself or with your partner, or need extra space for visitors coming in next week, just follow the steps below:
1. Get A Portable Storage Shed Of The Right Size
If you already have a shed, the first step will not be relevant. However, note that your shed’s size will determine the amount of furniture you will be able to accommodate in it. Thus, if your shed is too old or small, maybe a little bit of investment in a new portable shed won’t hurt. So we recommend you purchase a good-sized portable shed.
2. Do The Initial Preparations
Once you have decided on the above matter, the next matter to take care of is the initial preparation. Modular construction contractors will often incorporate wiring and other necessities during the construction process. But if your shed is an old one, you will have to get it wired appropriately.
After that, the next step is to insulate the shed against the bone-shaking weather. Insulate and de-draught your windows to preserve the heat in the shed. Lastly, do a final thorough cleanup of the place and remove all flammable items. Don’t forget to incorporate appropriate ventilation options.
3. Paint The Interior For A Warmer Bliss
Now comes the fun part. To enhance the cosy sensation, paint the interior with creamy white and rich red colours. If you want, hang a few portraits of your favourite paintings as well.
4. Provide Appropriate Lighting And Heat
After the above is done, the next important thing is to look into heating and lighting options. To complement the warm look, we would recommend the use of yellow lamps or incandescent bulbs. As for the heating options, we suggest you avoid any sort of naked flames and look for alternatives like space heaters.
5. Incorporate Matching Furniture
Now it is time for you to dress up your storage shed like a luxurious winter escape spot. Firstly, cover most of the floor area with a red, brown or black fluffy rug. These colours are natural heat retainers and add to the warmth in the room. Next, place a soft couch, blanket, coffee table, footstool, and lampstand.
Add other accessories like soft pillows, cushions, and maybe some soft toys if you are a fan of those. Also, keep a teapot, teabags (or coffee beans), dry fruits, and other snacks that you can munch on.
6. Savour The Cosiness!
Well, your cosy winter hideout is all set. Just grab your favourite novel with a flask of hot chocolate and enjoy the cosiness.
