Clear out your shed
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 Shedworking.co.uk 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
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, Greenfingers.com
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.
