Garden Shed Ideas with Vintage Details - Story Book Design Ideas
Just as they say you cannot judge a book by its cover, so too, it is true you cannot judge a shed by its exterior but it will give you a great start on the character of the gardener who built that shed. A shed does not have to be purely utilitarian. Yes, the interior must be well designed with ease of access to the fertilizer, towels, sprinklers and don't forget to add the potting soil to the mix! Pun in tended - sorry I just couldn't resist.
Where to put that tool rack? Outside of the garage and in the garden shed? What should the shed look like? A plastic thing? A tin thing? Or a thing of beauty? The choice but of course is obvious, what respectable gardener would allow a shabby pre fabricated shack to destroy the ambiance of the finely crafted garden?
To customize your garden shed, is perhaps even more of a luxury than the garage. For you see, unlike garages that can look great inside, the outside of the garden shed is paramount to the overall beauty of the garden.
I challenge my fellow gardener friends to share their thoughts on the pivotal nature of the design of the garden shed.

The exterior beauty of the garden shed can be anything you that delights you. From a shed that exudes Victorian architecture to a shed with a sun filled skylight to sheds with fine architectural details such as the crowning joy of a cupola to windows adorned with mullions and beyond.

Garage Should be for Cars Only
There is a purpose and reason for the garage and it should be reserved for cars only. Garden tools, lawn mowers, pesticides belong in the garden shed.
Yet a garden shed shouldn't have to look like the garden sheds from the blue light special. Sheds can incorporate the same architectural elements that we love with our homes.
