To kick off this list, where better to start than with shelves? Shelves are used nearly everywhere, and they will be right at home in a shed, too.

This method is great as you can get the boards cut to the right length and width for your space.

Wall Systems

Maximizing every available space is key, and using wall space helps free up floor space! 

Note on weight: Never overload a shed’s walls, and always follow the manufacturer’s advice. You may need to reinforce the structure so that it has the strength to hold items, but beware manufacturer’s guarantee if you do decide to alter the structure

  • HIGH QUALITY: Thicker M8 screws selected and all hardwares have gone through strict tests. Heavy duty cold-rolled steel construction provides safely loading up to 600 lbs.

If your shed is big enough or has an apex roof, you’re in for a treat. The amount you can cram into the ceiling or loft space is truly astonishing. 

However, be mindful of what you store up there, as these could easily get wet or damp if your roof hasn’t been waterproofed. 

You could store some simple tent poles or trekking poles along the rafters for easy access, or if you want, you can board it out with some wood and store some larger, more cumbersome equipment such as camping chairs. Beware of spiders and cobwebs is all I can say…! 

How to Organize a Gardening Shed 

In a gardening shed, you’re likely to have a LOT of clunky and cumbersome outdoor power tools and equipment. Space may be limited in a shed, and you may have a lot of stuff to store, so let’s explore the best ways to organize all of your gardening kit.

I searched high and low to find a suitable seed storage box for all of my seeds until I finally settled on a photo album container

This certainly wasn’t its intended use, but I needed help finding something big enough to accommodate all of the seeds I seem to accumulate each growing season! 

I used a Dymo label maker to make the labels for each box, which isn’t necessary, but I liked the aesthetic, and it’s great to use for labeling other things too! 

Alternatively, if you’re committed to avoiding plastic, there are also wonderful metal or wooden seed storage boxes available.

While we’re sorting out storage for walls, why not make use of the door? The door can be a great space to put things you need readily accessible, such as plant feed or handheld tools. 

Floor Space

The floor is the perfect place to store heavier and more cumbersome items, such as a lawn mower. The trick with storing anything on the floor is to make sure it is accessible and not going to cause trips and falls. Limit the use of floor space to just under a shelf or a workbench, as otherwise, it’s simply dead space.  

While we’re here, why not vacuum up any mess in your shed with the best garage vacuums

You can choose from many options, and you can accessorize them with hooks to give you even more space to store hand tools. 

How to Organize a Tool Shed 

Are your tools seemingly forever playing hide and seek? Worry not, DIY Warriors. We’re going to help you unleash the power of your tool shed. Buckle up and get ready to shed the mess once and for all!


In a tool shed, you’re going to want enough shelves to store all of your tools. Here we revisit our built-in and free-standing options but with a twist… 

Twin-slot shelving

ClosetMaid 2800 ShelfTrack 12-Inch Standard, White
  • Provides adjustable height options for placement of wire shelves
  • Standards must be placed no more than 24 in. apart and no more than 4 in. from end of shelf
  • Snaps into ClosetMaid ShelfTrack Hang Track

Twin-slot shelving makes for a highly customizable tool storage solution, and it can be used for all sorts of storage needs. 

All you need are some twin-slot uprights, brackets, wall plugs and screws, and either a metal or wooden surface. 

We have done this before, and it required measuring the space to ensure that the uprights were the right size and they could support the weight. 

We decided that for every 30 inches, we would have one upright, but you may need to increase or decrease this measurement depending on how heavy the load will be. Here’s a useful guide.  

[Note: while this is in the section for tool sheds, this can be replicated for any storage solution of your choice!]

I’m guilty of accumulating glass jars “just in case they come in handy.” They are very useful for storing the odd little tidbit. 

You can place jars on nearly every surface, from shelves to workbenches, and have them labeled so you know exactly what should and should not go in them. 

Small containers can be used for these things, too. I have an old biscuit tin that I store tape in, such as gaffer/duct tape, parcel tape, and electrical tape. 

The best thing about this is that you can reuse so many containers and label them.

What to put inside a shed?

Common items to store in a shed include gardening tools and equipment, bicycles, outdoor furniture, sports gear, seasonal decorations, and any other household items that are not needed as frequently.

What items should not be stored inside a shed?

Some items should not be stored in a shed due to potential damage or safety concerns. For example, perishable foods, flammable materials, important documents or any item that is susceptible to extreme changes in temperature and humidity. 

Is it ok to store clothes in a shed?

Sheds are often exposed to extreme changes in temperature and humidity, which could damage clothing over time. If you must store clothes in a shed, use sealed containers or vacuum bags to protect them from moisture, pests, and dust.

How do I maximize space in my small shed?

Start by utilizing vertical space with shelves or hanging hooks to help keep items off the floor. Boost efficiency with stackable storage containers or bins. 

Optimize the shed’s wall space by incorporating pegboards or racks for hanging tools and equipment. 

Consider adding overhead racks or pulley systems for larger items like bicycles or ladders. Implement a well-organized system with labeled containers or zones for quicker item retrieval. 

And remember the golden rule: declutter to create space. With this approach, your small shed will feel like a tardis!
