Clear out your shed

Style at Home (UK) - - Do It Style School -

It’s time to tidy up and say good­bye to clut­ter cur­tains, and fit it out with small fur­ni­ture for lit­tles ones. We love the Krit­ter range from Ikea, from £10 for a chair.

Make a Den

Paint your shed and treat your­self to a hard-wear­ing sisal mat (such as the Osted rug, from £15, Ikea). Then add a comfy arm­chair to cre­ate a cosy space to re­lax in.

Work From home

Find a com­pact desk and put up some shelves for pa­per­work to make a gar­den office. If you want to use it in win­ter, head to Shed­work­ for tips on heat­ing and in­su­la­tion.

cre­ate a Play space

Kids will love a mini ‘house’, so paint your shed in cheery colours – per­haps with an in­ter­nal black­board paint panel so they can draw on it – sew

Go Potty

Make a dreamy pot­ting shed – paint in­ter­nal walls white to re­flect light, put a shelf un­der the win­dow for seedlings, hang tools on old nails and in­stall a pot­ting bench. Try the Fir ta­ble, £27.99, Green­fin­

Get ac­tive

Even a small space can be turned into a gym. Paint the walls, then lay vinyl floor­ing (from £8.99 per sq m, Car­petright). Hang a mirror so you can check your pos­ture, then add equip­ment.
