Picture it: you purchased the perfect piece for your backyard.  The garage has more room to park your car.  Those Christmas decorations aren’t cluttering up the basement.  Everything has its place.  You’re feeling like you actually have your life together because of how organized everything is.  And then it hits you: your new storage shed doesn’t match what’s happening in your backyard.
What do you do?  The structure is perfect – it’s everything you could have asked for, and it functions are endless, but it just doesn’t look right.

Here are 8 ways to beautify your storage shed in your backyard:

1.  A new coat of paint

Freshen up your storage shed with a new coat of paint.  Paint is an inexpensive and easy way to bring life to your backyard.
Pro Tip: to make your shed pop, paint the doors a bold color.  We recommend teal or red.  These colors really make a statement.

2.  Add bird feeders

Birds – and other wildlife – create such a wonderful atmosphere in your yard.  Not only are they beautiful to watch, they offer an unexplained peace that comes with having nature take place right outside your window. Hang some bird feeders to invite your feathered friends to stop by.  

3.  Create art

Art comes in many forms, and no matter what medium you choose, you can breathe life into your backyard.  You can hang pictures, paint a statement piece on an exterior wall, or use the interior walls as an inspiration board.

4.  Accessorize the exterior

Speaking of the exterior, when you decorate the outside of your structure, you create a welcoming atmosphere that encourages you to use every inch of space.  Start by adding a bench to read on, get creative an use an old wheelbarrow as a repurposed flower pot, or hang a seasonal wreath.  The ideas are endless and will make the outdoor structure feel like it’s a part of the house. 

5.  Add a pergola to the front

Can you ever go wrong with a pergola?  ‘Nuff said.

6.  Add curtains

Just like inside your home, curtains add a special touch that makes the space feel inviting.  Plus, curtains add a touch to the exterior and play into the whole decor of the backyard.

7.  Add plants

We would be wrong if we didn’t mention plants when talking about beautifying your backyard.  If there isn’t enough space to mulch and plant flowers, you can use trellises to grow climbing vines or window boxes for flowers.  No matter what, plants are always a good idea.

8.  Landscaping

Landscaping can be as simple as mulch and as complex as a full vegetable garden around.  Don’t over think it.  Start simply and add as you find more ways to make the space functional and beautiful.
