Practical garden shed storage ideas

It’s spring and garden time! I’m sure almost every garden has a garden shed where you keep all your tools, seeds, buckets, etc. What are the practical shed storage ideas to save space and keep everything organized? Of course, the most common idea is to store some cabinets, but what about making furniture out of wine or milk crates? Attach baskets to the wall for storage, use funnels for string and hooks to hang everything from shovels to scissors, and store seeds in large mason jars. Get more inspirational ideas below!


Shelves are classic storage units and using open shelving for storage in your shed is a cool idea. They can be made of wood, plywood, metal and other materials. Mount them to the walls or lay them on the floor if they are oversized. Combine open shelving with other storage solutions you see below.

hooks, holders and racks

I can’t imagine a garden shed without hooks and racks – they are extremely handy for organizing your belongings and tools. Hooks, holders and racks can be attached directly to the walls or pegboard to make your room more variable and convenient. You can hang tools, shovels, rakes and many other things and add as many as you need to avoid wasting your floor space or shelves on these items.

cabinets and tables

Why do cabinets and tables come together? Because both can be taken from your old kitchen and converted into garden shed furniture or not renovated at all – shabby chic is all the rage! Add open shelving under table tops or use your cabinet countertops for gardening. Attach some open shelves above the tables or cabinets and enjoy!

Other ideas

Attach the pegboard to the walls and furniture, attach hooks and storage units to them. Pick up ladders, baskets and wire baskets that attach to the walls, classic tool walls, and other things that might work in your garden shed. Get inspired!
