Shed Workshop Ideas

Is your hobby becoming more than a hobby? Are you a weekend warrior in need of more space? Maybe you’ve outgrown your garage or just want a dedicated space to work on your projects. Transforming a shed into a workshop can be the perfect solution!

Sheds come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose one that will be large enough for your equipment, tools, and other needed amenities for an efficient workspace. In this blog, we’ll share some shed workshop ideas to help you get started – or contact Glick Woodworks to begin designing today!

How to Turn a Shed into a Workshop

There are many aspects to consider for a shed workshop. With a little planning, you can create the perfect environment for however you plan to utilize the space.

Here are 5 things to keep in mind when turning a shed into a workshop:

  1. Storage: Any good workshop needs adequate storage space for tools, materials, and finished projects. Built-in cabinets, shelves, and bins are great to keep your things organized and out of the way when you’re not using them.
  2. Insulation and Heating: Depending on the climate you live in; you should consider insulating and heating your shed workshop for year-round comfortability. Adding insulation to the walls and ceiling will help keep the space warm in winter and cool in summer. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time in your shed workshop, you may also want to add heating and ventilation for comfort and safety.
  3. Flooring: The type of flooring you choose for your shed workshop will depend on the activities you’ll be doing inside. If you plan on working with power tools or other heavy equipment, concrete or tile floors are a good option. For lighter work, such as woodworking or crafting, you can choose a softer flooring option like linoleum or carpet.
  4. Electrical Wiring: One of the most important things to consider when turning a shed into a workshop is electrical wiring. You’ll need to make sure the space is properly wired for any tools or equipment you plan on using. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, hire a professional electrician to do the job for you.
  5. Lighting: Adequate lighting is essential for any workshop. Choose bright, energy-efficient bulbs to help you see what you’re doing and cut down on eye fatigue. You may also want to add task lighting for specific areas of your shed workshop, such as a workbench or craft table.

What Size Shed is Best for a Workshop?

The size of shed you’ll need for your workshop will depend on how you’ll be working in the space and the amount of additional space you’ll need for storage. If you’re just getting started with your hobby and don’t have a lot of equipment, a small shed like our 8×10 Garden Shed might be a good option. However, if you have a lot of equipment or plan on doing some heavy-duty work, you’ll want to consider a larger shed like our 20×20 shed.

Still not sure what size shed is best for you workshop? Don’t worry, Glick Woodworks can help you customize it to suit your needs! We’ll help you plan for added shelves, cabinets, workbenches, and any other features you need to make your workshop functional and comfortable.

Having had 12x20 garage/shed by Glick Woodworks for seven months now and can tell that this is very solid and well built product. Equally important, it was a very easy and professional process to discuss design, get drawings, and finalize order. All my questions were answered, all emails and calls promptly responded to. The installation was right on time, fast, and just a pleasure to watch. Overall, I don't think I'll need another shed anytime soon, but if I do - I know where to go!

I needed to move a shed to a different property. Dave was quick to respond, scheduling was easy, especially important because I had a narrow timeframe to work with, and the move was smooth, uneventful, and with perfect placement. The person who did the move itself was informative, skilled, and pleasant. I highly recommend and will most definitely use again.
