65 Asian Garage and Shed Design Photos

If you have a smaller house, your garage or shed is a storage lifeline. It's the place to keep large, infrequently used items, outdoor supplies, seasonal decor or anything that just doesn't fit indoors. Because it's often used as a storage room, your space can easily become a cluttered mess if not well organized. Prevent this in your garage by adding shelves, cabinets and organizers for every tool and piece of equipment you own. If more space is needed, think about buying or making a shed to transport some of the clutter outdoors. And for the lucky ones who don't need all that storage, convert the space into a full-fledged asian living area as either an office, playroom or family room. More

How do I organize my garage?


One of the best ways to keep your space clean is by adding built-ins. They allow you to carefully organize all your items so they're easy to find and put away while you work. Add cabinets along the walls, a built-in workbench for ample counter space and wall hooks for hanging brooms, shovels and other oddly shaped tools. Stow pricier, cherished tools in a locked toolbox, and use wall-mounted racks to keep bikes out of the way. Think about your ceiling too; many manufacturers make overhead ceiling racks for seasonal and infrequently used items.

Should I get a shed?


If your garage can't keep up with your purchases, consider adding a shed to take on some of the storage load. Because it's in the backyard, it's a convenient place for gardening or yard equipment, as well as seasonal pool accessories or outdoor cushions during the winter. When the weather is nice, they can also work as a detached living space for work or play. Because they don't take up much room, they are easy to add and come in a variety of price points, which makes them work well for many families.

What else can I use my asian garage and shed for?


If living space is more of an issue than storage, you can always convert it into an extra room. Because it is often placed out in the yard, a shed makes a fun playhouse or outdoor playroom; it can also work also a quiet home office for those who work from home. A garage, whether detached or attached, can also act as a home office or playroom, as well as a music room, craft room or extra bedroom. If you're turning it into a fully developed space, make sure it complies with local ordinances and has enough ventilation, light and insulation for seasonal temperature changes.
