There are many things that you will need to consider before deciding on the size of your shed such as the size of your property, backyard, garden, and how you are going to use that shed.

Shed size is one of the most important questions that comes into every buyer’s mind. Figuring out what size of storage shed you need is not an easy thing to do.

In this blog post we have outlined 4 tips that will help you to choose the right shed size.

What Is The Main Purpose Of The Shed?

The first thing you need to answer is what’s the purpose of the shed. Storage sheds are used for countless reasons and are not always just used to store things. So you need to figure out the main purpose of installing a shed on your property.

Once you have figured out why you need a shed and what will be its purpose, jot down the interior details that will help you to reach your expectation for its functionality.

Questions like will you need a chair and desk or will you need to install cabinets and drawers? All this will help you find the main purpose of your shed.

When figuring out the purpose of your shed do keep in mind how much room you will need to comfortably move around in it and to complete the tasks you are thinking of doing in your shed. Remember to always think about the height and shape of your shed as well along with the length and width of the shed.

What Things Will The Shed Hold?

This is the most important question that will help you to determine the size of your storage shed. Most people plan to get a storage shed in order to fulfill their storage needs, therefore you need to figure out what exactly you will keep in there.

Will your shed be used to store your snow sports equipment, your ATV, or your garden equipment? It is important to figure out what the shed will hold in order to decide the size of your shed.

A mistake most people make is that they don’t think about their storage needs; they forget that they will have to stash their holiday decorations, lawn furniture, and other unwanted stuff in their shed. So, before making a decision on the size of your shed you need to decide what things will go in it and how much space they will need. Also, don’t forget to include the space needed for you to comfortably walk in the shed while organizing the shed.

Community Guidelines

A factor most people forget to consider is the guidelines of their local municipality and the rules of their neighborhood. Many localities require you to first register the placement of your shed with a zoning office before installing it and if the size is too big they may ask you to get a permit. So it’s better that you go through all the rules and regulations of your community before buying a shed.

Room For Growth

Once you have decided the purpose of your shed and the things that will go in your shed it is better to ask yourself if you will need more storage in the future. Because in years to come maybe your storage needs will increase. So it is better to plan the size and shape of your shed accordingly. As you will not want to buy a storage shed that will not be adequate for a few years.
