Shedding the Light: 4 Simple Reminders Before Shed-Shopping

Author: Raquel  

We’re Simply Sheds. And we want you to have the shed, garage or workshop perfect for your backyard – and we do believe that it is quite simple. So we’re breaking down the things you should consider before shopping our catalogue.

We do boast a vast range of not just garden sheds, but also garages, workshops and patio covers. So first thing you need to do is to think of what you need for your home.

Why are you thinking of buying a shed? Do you just need a secure storage for your gardening tools? Or do you need a full potting shed? If you’re a handyman, maybe you need more than just a storeroom for your tools and equipment.

If you’re wishing for an additional space to lounge in or to entertain your friends, you can opt to convert your existing patio with one our covers made of steel. Or if you want something more charming in a corner or the middle of your garden, we’ve got a line of gazebos for you to choose from.

2.    Set the space.

If you’ve got a generous area in your property, you’d only need to think of the space that you need or want to allot for the shed. Otherwise, just like most people, you’d have to measure the space you’ve got available and check again the space that you require. Often, it’s a story of compromise and creativity. 

Don’t worry; that’s why we at Simply Sheds carry different sizes, shapes, heights and roof types in our store. For example, we have garden sheds that are narrow, wide, square, tall and almost all forms. Our garages come in single-, double-, and triple-door types. Even our aviaries are available in different sizes and with flat or gable roof.

You can find quality sheds that won’t really break your bank. Simply Sheds, in fact, offer high-grade Zincalume Sheds below $200.* These affordable products are durable, easy-to-maintain and even engineered to withstand cyclonic conditions. So you really don’t have to worry much about significant maintenance costs on a frequent basis.    

Before purchasing sheds, or any product online at that, you should also check delivery fees and guarantees. Simply Sheds deliver free to designated depots and with a flat rate to your doorstep – anywhere in Australia. Our Best Price Guarantee and multiple-year warranties on all products are just a couple of other things our customers can depend on.

4.    Add accessories.

Of course, you’d probably have different requirements and preferences from other shed shoppers. And these would go beyond the choice of colour, door type and roofing. For instance, if you’re in an area that experiences hot, humid weather for long periods of time, you might want a shed or workshop that has better air circulation than the usual. Or you might be someone who needs more shelves in his storage.

While Simply Sheds don’t offer customised products, we focus on bringing you top-notch prefab sheds that can be matched with quality accessories such as Sliding Perspex windows and Skylights. We even have Cyclone Kits for the various shed sizes to upgrade your building's strength against extreme weather conditions.

Picking the perfect shed for you isn’t really complicated. Just keep in mind what you really need and what you have. If you still have questions on which shed would be ideal for your home, ask our Customer Service at 1300 66 77 48 or send an email to customerservice@simplysheds.com.au.
