How to Use My Patio, Shed or Garage for Extra Storage?

Gable patio from insideHomeowners are constantly on the lookout for ways to maximise the amount of storage space in their home. If the inside of your home is bursting at the seams, have you ever considered looking to the outdoors for storage? Most homes have a patio, shed, garage or multiple weather-proof outdoor areas that can be used as an extra storage space.

Looking for some easy and practical ways to use your outdoor space for extra storage? Read on to learn popular ways including:

  • Benches
  • Wardrobes and Cupboards
  • Buckets and Baskets

Benches

Inside shedBenches are a great addition to an outdoor space. Benches are dual purpose as they can be used for storage plus seating. Portable benches can be moved to be positioned wherever needed or inbuilt benches are a more permanent fixture. Benches are a great place to store items out of view like beach towels, pool toys, beach umbrellas and other seasonal items. This in turn will help free up storage space inside your home.   

Wardrobes and Cupboards

Wardrobes and cupboards aren’t only practical inside the home, they are a great way to store items outside the home too. Wardrobes and cupboards placed up against a wall in your patio, shed or garage will take up minimal room, but provide ample storage space. Wardrobes can be used to hang sporting uniforms or seasonal clothes such as coats and jackets. Cupboards can be used as an extra space for linen, towels and pillows. Removing these bulky items from inside will once again free up space indoors.

Buckets and Baskets 

Varying sizes of buckets and baskets are a great portable storage solution for your patio, shed or garage. Lightweight buckets and baskets are cost effective to buy and can easily be moved from indoors to outdoors. They can be used to store items such as children’s toys and games. Storing these items in buckets and baskets outdoors will help to declutter the inside of your home.
