When compared to other sheds, a 6×8 shed is considered to be small, but it may be the perfect shed size to utilize your outdoor space to its fullest potential. You can use a 6×8 shed as a storage space for your garden tools, seasonal items, hobby supplies, or your bike. If you have a small backyard and don’t have a ton of items to store, you can fit a 6×8 wood shed in the corner or alongside your home.
Keep in mind that a 6×8 shed is too small to store large items, like ATVs, lawn furniture, or a lawn mower. You’ll need to buy a larger shed to store big items like these. Another thing to consider is that with time you will always accumulate more stuff, so sometimes bigger is better.
Make the Most of Your 6×8 Wood Shed
While many items are too large for a small shed, there are steps you can take to maximize your 6×8 shed’s storage capacity. You’d be surprised how much extra space you can create with extra shelves. Add some shelves on the side and back walls of your shed to store small items. This will free up floor space for larger items. If you do handy work around your home and need a place for your tools, you can also put up pegboard. Lastly, if you want to bring in natural light without compromising wall space, add skylights.
If you’re up for it, you can easily DIY these enhancements – get all of the materials in a single trip to your local Home Depot.
Are 6×8 Sheds Right for my Backyard?
When it comes to buying your backyard wood shed, size is a very important decision. How large or how small you should go isn’t as straight forward as it may seem. There’s a lot to consider. Of course, you’ll need to evaluate the size of your property and how you hope to use the shed, but even those seemingly simple factors have many variables. The way people use sheds can be so dramatically different. So, we recommend choosing a shed that’s the right size to help you make the most of your lifestyle.
