Garden sheds are a great addition to any outdoor space. However, sometimes you may want to disguise them or help a shed blend into the background of your home. Regardless of your reason for doing so, we understand the importance of being able to adapt garden features to complement the overall aesthetic of your property. That’s why we’ve compiled this overview of the different techniques available.
Reasons To Disguise A Garden Shed
The need to disguise a garden shed is not always negative. Often you’ve had a high-quality shed installed, but just want it to be less prominent in your outdoor space. Please see below for a more detailed insight into the reasons for hiding a shed.
Sheds are a fantastic way to add extra room to your garden for space and activities. What’s more, they can often be very cost-effective. However, budget shed options do not come with much in the way of customisation, and you could be left with a structure that sticks out like a sore thumb. Saving money is great, but you may also want a shed that complements the design of your garden.
Wear & Tear
An old shed can be an eyesore. It may still be functional, but the paint could be peeling and the wood could appear old and lacklustre. Fortunately, if the bones are still in good condition, disguising them with a few of the techniques listed here could result in a new lease of life for the old building.
Popular Plants To Cover A Garden Shed
A fantastic way to disguise your garden shed is with plants. Often, this is an easy and cost-effective way of helping your structure blend in with its surroundings whilst adding life and colour to your garden. Climbers such as honeysuckle and wisteria are classic British plants that add vibrant seasonal colour and quick coverage.
Screens & Garden Features
Another great way of disguising a garden shed is through additional features. Screens, pergolas, and fencing can be painted and customised in a variety of ways to not only hide aspects of your shed but improve the overall look and feel of your property. You can grow plants in and around them, apply your favourite paints, and even add custom artwork to complement a contemporary style.
One of the best ways of hiding a shed is by using the right paint. Natural and pastille colours with light shades will blend your garden shed with its environment without the need for expensive structures or planting schemes. Light greens, yellows, browns and blues are all great options.
