Outdoor storage for your home
What are the different types of outdoor storage?
If you are in need of more storage for your home, it is sometimes best to take a look at the available space that you have outside and how you can utilise this. There are many different types of storage units and sheds available for outdoor usage.
When choosing outdoor storage for your home, there is a variety of options that you should take into consideration. Before choosing your outdoor storage unit consider the following:
- What material do I want?
- What do I need to store?
- What type of locks do I want?
- How long does it need to last?
- Are there any additional features I need?
Wooden sheds are the most common and traditional storage units in gardens. Wooden garden sheds appeal because they blend well into garden surroundings and can be painted any colour/colours that you choose. Wooden garden sheds can be as understated or extravagant as you choose and are easy to transform. However the main problem associated with wooden outdoor storage is that this can often rot and leak, if not regularly maintained. Wooden sheds need regular maintenance because the wood changes with the moisture content, meaning that the shed will need repainting every 2-3 years and regularly coating with a wood protector.
