A garden shed is very useful for storing tools, pots or various accessories. But when the outdoor space is reduced, its installation is not always obvious! For a small garden , a balcony , a terrace or a patio , better think mini garden hut or alternative solution!
A mini decorative garden hut
The primary function of a garden shed is utilitarian. It must be used to centralize all the equipment needed to maintain its garden area . In a confined space, the traditional garden shed is too bulky and often unattractive!
To save space, use thin storage solutions. They can be installed in a narrow passage or against a wall. Think also multifunctional solutions (seat + storage) particularly interesting on a balcony ! To minimize the impact of storage, use potted plants that will better integrate it into the environment.
Do not hesitate to make your garden hut , a decorative element in its own right! For this you can play with colors or materials (with a glazed version for example).
You can also choose to install a nice storage table to create a charming corner. In this case, accessories and tools become real decorative objects. Lovely but in case of rain, better to have a sheltered place!
A clever mini garden hut
When space is lacking to have a real garden hut , there is reason to be ingenious! How to collect a lot of disparate objects in a minimum of space? Not to mention that they must be easily accessible!
In the same spirit, the seat that serves as a storage basket is also an original option. Nomad, compact, it is also a beautiful accessory that can stay in view without problem!
