Garden Shed Sizes: How To Pick The Perfect Shed
If you haven't already got a slab down and a space marked out, picking the perfect shed size can be a little tricky. It's important to take a little time to make sure that the shed you choose will work for you.
If you've already got a slab, an existing shed you need to replace, or a space properly mapped out, then the easiest thing to do is select the size from our range that best suits what you have currently. Keep in mind that to get a good deal and not overpay, you might need to give up a few millimetres here and there to find a shed that fits your space — unless you want to spend 2-3 times the price on a custom-build.
When you're starting from scratch, there are two things to consider:
1) How much space do I have?
2) What do I want to store in it?
Point #1 is first for a reason: if you want to put your ride-on mower in your shed but only have a 2m x 2m space, you might be in a spot of trouble!
Essentially, what you need to do is map out how wide and how deep you want the shed to be. We actually recommend that you space it out using stakes and strings — or if you know what you want, have the slab poured first. Something to keep in mind if you are having your slab poured is to make sure you allow 100mm of extra size on each side of the slab so that the shed fits properly. If you want to make sure it doesn't leak underneath, have it rebated.
Once you know the space you have available, it's worth planning what exactly you're going to be storing because you might need a little bit more or less space than you think.
If it's just some tools and your standard, garden-variety knick-knacks, you can probably get away with a narrow shed (especially if you are looking at a tighter than normal space).
At the top end of the spectrum, you've got the workshop sheds, which are only really needed if you intend to use them as a workshop or for some seriously large storage. Keep in mind that in most places in Australia, anything over 10 sqm requires council approval — if you are looking at a bigger shed than this, it's worth checking with your council first. As a rough guide, if you are looking at a 3x3 shed or less, you should be fine without council approval.
Garden Shed Kits: Custom VS Kit Form Sheds - Which Should You Choose?
The first (and main) reason people prefer a kit form shed is the cost. As a rule of thumb, you can expect to pay 2-3 times the amount for a full custom shed as you would a garden shed kit of a similar size.
We made the choice back in 2012 to only sell kit form sheds. What this means is that all our sheds come in a box with all the parts and instructions ready to be put together by our customers. Over the last few years, we've sold well over 50,000 of these garden shed kits with great response from our customers.
In our experience, the only time you should consider a custom shed is if you really need an exact, almost to-the-millimetre measurement — for example, if you need a 2.85 x 2.85 exact shed, or something that is 3m height instead of 2m.
Garden Shed Prices: What Will A New Shed Will Likely Cost You?
It comes down to how big of a shed you want, what features or extras you want it to have, and what style you are after... the fancier the shed, the higher the cost. Based on your budget, here is a rough idea of where you'll get the best bang for your buck.
Sheds under $500 — Here, you'd be looking at our smaller-sized sheds starting at 0.8m x 0.8m up to 1.5m x 0.8m sheds. The 1.5m x 0.8m shed is one our most popular models thanks to its excellent value. These sheds are cost-effective, compact and great if you’re looking for something small.
$500-$1000 sheds — This is where you can start to really pick and choose what you want. You can pick up a good 3x3 shed within this price bracket which is super affordable, falls under that 10sqm council issue (check with your council first!) and has a great deal of storage space. You can also explore some of the premier sheds in our range. Most sizes will be available to you in this range and come with different door and roof configurations. Basically, if you're in this sort of price range, you can pick and choose a shed to your liking.
Sheds over $1000 — Excluding workshop sheds, these are our largest garden sheds in the range. If you've got the budget for more than $1000 for your shed, then you shouldn't have any issues in finding what you are looking for.
Australian Garden Sheds: Why Buying Australian Made Makes Sense
Patriotism aside, sheds are one of the few things you really need to consider purchasing as "Australian-made” for one simple reason: Australian manufacturers understand Australian conditions. At Simply Sheds, we only work with Australian brands. Our entire range is made locally in Australia to ensure our customers receive high-quality products, constructed to Australian standards.
One major advantage of this is the ability to offer up to 20 years warranty or a lifetime warranty on our products. That’s much more than the 5 to 10-year warranty you’ll receive on most imported sheds. While it's unlikely that you will need to take any of our brands up on that warranty, you’ll have the peace of mind that your product is ensured for the long haul.
Plus, we have firsthand experience with all our manufacturers and can guarantee fast solutions on any issues with your shed.
