Sheds for a Small Business Space

Running a business can be challenging. With overhead fees such as rent, inventory and utilities, it’s important to be resourceful when finding the right space for your business. As of mid-2022, the cost to own or rent a property are near record highs. So, what’s a business owner to do?

Consider transforming a shed into an efficient business space! With a little bit of work and creativity, a shed can be turned into a functional and presentable space for your clients or workshop. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of utilizing a shed for business as well as some industries that would be a good fit – or contact Glick Woodworks to start planning your shed for business use!

Benefits of Sheds for Business Use

There are many benefits to using a shed for your business. With a few simple modifications, a shed can be transformed into a professional and functional workspace.
Some of the benefits of using a shed for a small business include:

Cost Savings: When compared to the cost of renting or purchasing a commercial space over the course of a year, a shed will most likely be much more affordable. With those potential savings, you can explore larger shed sizes for maximum utilization.

Flexibility: Since you’ll be placing your shed on your own property, you will have complete control over how you use the space and when you use it! This means that you can design the shed to perfectly fit the needs of your business and how you want to utilize it.

Functionality: With some careful planning, sheds can be designed to be highly efficient, organized, and functional workspaces. The most effective ways to add functionality to your shed include:

  • Running electricity to the shed.
  • Insulating the walls for optimal temperature control.
  • Ample windows for light, in addition to electrical lighting.
  • Optional: Add plumbing!

5 Industries That Could Benefit from Utilizing a Shed

There are many different industries that could benefit from using a shed as a business space. When deciding if a shed is right for your business, consider the type of business you have and how you will be utilizing the workspace.

Here are 5 small businesses that may benefit from using a shed:

Business Office Shed: If you have a small business that primarily works with paperwork or office tasks or has client facing meetings, a shed can be easily transformed into a functional and presentable office space. Adding windows, flooring, and electricity will create space perfect to get your work done. Don’t forget a chair and desk!

Photography Studio Shed: A shed can make a great photography studio! By adding soundproofing, insulation, and proper lighting, you can create a space that is perfect for photo or video shoots.

Art and Craft Business Shed: Do you need a space to paint, sculpt, or practice your craft? A shed makes a great art studio! Add some shelving, a worktable, and several windows for good lighting to create a space where you can unleash your creativity.

Pet Grooming Business Shed: If you have a pet grooming business, a shed can serve as a great space to groom your furry clients. By adding some basic electric and plumbing, you can create a comfortable and efficient space for both you and your clients.

Salon and Spa Business Shed: A shed can also be a great space for a salon or spa business! By adding electric, plumbing, and some comfortable furniture, you can create a relaxing and inviting space for your clients. (Warning: Be careful with open-flamed candles!)

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.
