With all the areas around your home that desperately need spring-cleaning — the attic, guest bedroom, and garage — it’s easy to overlook your shed. It might not be at the top of your checklist, but revamping and reorganizing your shed can turn your ordinary storage space into an ideal hangout place. Here are some tips to help you fully prepare your shed for spring.
Organize Your Approach
The first step in preparing your shed for spring is organizing your approach to organization. Separate your shed contents into four piles: keep, sell, donate, and discard. Items in the “keep” pile should be ones that you will use in your everyday future or have specific plans to use down the road. Before you restore or display items from this pile, clear off any dust, dirt, or debris.
Any items worth extra cash but not worth the space around your shed should go right to the “sell” pile. If you have any unwanted items that don’t have a worthy resell value, put them in a “donate” pile to go to a local shelter or thrift store. Finally, any items that are broken, damaged, or unusable belong in the “discard” pile.
Change Your Décor
There’s no shame in spoiling your shed with the finest spring décor. To transform it for the season, hand pick a theme and select a brand-new color scheme that fits your personal preference. Arrange comfortable seating, set up ambient lighting, and chose functional storage options that will leave you with as much floor space as possible.
Or, turn your shed into a studio for your favorite hobby by plugging up your amps, laying out your paintbrushes, or setting up your stationary bicycle. You can even turn some of your focus to the area around your shed by adding mulch, stepping-stones, or motion-sensor lights. Overall, there’s no wrong way to remodel your shed.
Secure Your Area
If you notice any warning signals of animal intrusion in your shed, now is the time to take care of it. To reduce damage and restore your shed for spring, check for signs of insect pests or wild animals, including droppings, urine, hives, or nests.
Even if you don’t have reason to believe that your shed has pests, it’s a good idea to check for holes that they might use in the future. To be on the safe side, seal any holes around your shed and clean up around the tough-to-reach places, like the ceiling corners.
