Top 10 Storage Shed Accessories
There are plenty of optional features for your storage shed which you can purchase or build yourself. Here is our top 10 list of storage shed accessories.
1 Tractor Ramp – Although not every shed owner needs a ramp it still tops our list.
2 Loft – Inexpensive to construct, a loft adds additional storage space. Lofts are perfect for storing everything from pool toys to boxes of holiday decorations.
3 Cupola – A vented cupola helps to cool your shed during the hot summer months. Cupolas adorned with a weathervane add character to your storage shed.
4 Bike Hooks – They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used to hang bikes as well as ladders, hose, pool implements etc. I hang a small snow thrower from a couple of hooks in my shed.
5 Shelving – Slat wall works well and give you the ability to add/remove shelves quickly and easily. There are many different types of shelves, baskets, hooks etc. which are compatible with slat wall.
6 Shed Alarm – Probably not the first thing that pops into someones head when thinking about a shed accessory. A MUST have if your storing valuable items in your shed.
7 Lights – This is a necessity to many. Ideally, you were able to run power to your shed and install some lights and outlets. If you don’t need power to your shed basic tap lights work very well for those times when there just is not enough sun light. Another option are solar shed lights. They take longer to install than a tap light but will never need batteries.
8 Heater – Through the wall propane heaters work well and are not expensive to operate. It can also ehat up a 10′x16 shed in a matter of minutes. Electric heaters are another option.
9 Window Boxes – A very popular shed accessory. I recommend vinyl or composite so you don’t have to worry about rotting.
10 Loft Door – You don’t necessarily need a loft to have a loft door. Who would need a loft door? They’re great for plumbers, electricians, carpenters etc. A loft door makes it easy to store lumber, pipes and other long objects (kayaks, canoes) from the outside.
