Sheds with a Storage Loft
Everyone knows a shed is ideal for storing lawn equipment, bikes, and anything else needing protection from the elements. When choosing your new shed, you need to understand what your storage needs are, and how much space is available on your property. If your property is limited on real estate, but you need to maximize your outdoor storage space, then a shed with a loft may be the perfect solution for you!
In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of a shed with a storage loft, various styles and sizes, as well as the different ways of utilizing the extra space aloft.

Benefits of Sheds with a Loft
There are many benefits of having a shed with a loft. The most obvious is the extra storage space it provides – a loft adds storage space without adding to the square footage. If your property limits you from building out, then build up! This is especially beneficial if you live in a densely populated area like a city or a neighborhood with conjoining backyards.
Another great benefit of sheds with a loft is that they can be used as a workspace. If you’re someone who likes to tinker in the garage or work on small projects, then a shed with a loft can be the perfect addition to your property. Give yourself an area to set up a workbench or table but still have the space aloft to store your tools and materials close at hand, without taking up valuable space in your work area.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to utilizing a shed with a loft – it just depends on your needs and imagination. See shed workshop ideas for inspiration!
Barn Style Lofted Sheds vs. A-Frame Lofted Sheds
When it comes to sheds with a loft, there are two basic styles – the barn style and the A-frame.
The barn style is characterized by its traditional gambrel roofline. This gives you added headroom in the loft, as well as extra storage space in the eaves. The barn style is also popular for its Dutch doors, which can be great for ventilating a small workspace and easily accessing large equipment.
The A-frame style is distinguished by its steeply pitched roofline. This gives the shed a more compact appearance and is better suited for smaller yards or properties with limited space. The A-frame is also popular for its lofted dormer windows, which add natural light and ventilation to the shed.
Both styles of sheds with a loft are available in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.

Here are some additional features you may want to consider:
- Doors – Choose from double doors, single door, or Dutch doors.
- Windows – Add one or more windows to let in natural light and ventilation.
- Siding – Select from a variety of siding options to match your shed to your home.
- Flooring – Upgrade to pressure-treated floor joists or add a floor for added durability.
