If you’re looking to add a little wow-factor to your property, or if you need a commercial or industrial solution for your business that’s both affordable and easy to install—a designer shed could be for you. The reality of these “designer sheds” is that they’re actually much more than just sheds. They have a ton of different uses for your home or business.
While the up-front cost might be high, they could add value to your property. That means the cost of installation could be offset by what your property gains in value, making them an even better choice.
And that’s without looking at how quick and easy they are to install. A proper extension might take months of planning and building, but these sheds can be up in a few short days. Many can also be installed under permitted development rules and without additional (and time consuming!) planning applications.
So, what different things can these sheds be used for?
If space is difficult to come by in your actual home but you’ve got plenty around your property, a designer shed is perfect for your home office. If you need to work from home instead of the main office sometimes, your company might even pay for the shed to be installed. Try not to think of these like traditional garden sheds. They can be modern, sleek and well-designed. Enough to wow potential visitors or meet prospective clients!

If you don’t need an office but still want to make the most of your outside space, you can simply use one of these sheds as a garden room. These can be used for relaxing or entertaining guests, and can have the perfect design features to match. Just be careful not to use one as a bedroom, as this might not be allowed without additional planning permission.
If you haven’t got somewhere to store your vehicle overnight but don’t want to pay the cost of having a traditional garage built, a designer shed could do the job for you perfectly. Not only that, but you could then save more money on your car insurance as you keep your vehicle in a more secure location, further extending the financial benefits. Steel garages are becoming more popular as a cost effective solution that’s more sustainable and also much more easy to install on a property that doesn’t already have a brick garage.
