5 Ways to Add Bold Design to Your Backyard Shed 2023
Do you love the wallpaper trend, but feel hesitant to incorporate it into your primary home? A backyard shed can be the perfect place to play with this fun design, where your investment of time, money, and effort will be far less than in a large room in your house. Even just a single accent wall in the shed can be the pop of color and personality you need to make the space feel like you.
A backyard shed is also the perfect candidate for a bold color choice. Without having to consider how it might suit the color palette of the rest of a house, you can design the shed as its own space with its own look. Even beyond wall color, consider choosing a unique color for trim, ceiling, cabinets, or doors.
When you choose the flooring for your main house, you have to consider how it will flow with the rest of the floor plan, how much it costs to cover up to thousands of square feet, and how it might affect resale value. These concerns hardly come into play when choosing flooring for a backyard shed. With just a few hundred square feet or less to cover, your options will expand significantly.
Another fun way to add personality to your backyard shed is through hardware. Door knobs, lighting, cabinet handles, and even brackets or hooks on the wall can all be ways to add some unique touches to the shed. Look for a finish or shape you love, or go for a mismatched look by collecting and repurposing items from antique stores and flea markets.
Consider adding a mural or gallery wall to the backyard shed, suited to the way you plan to use the space. If it is a home office, choose something calming and enjoyable to glance at throughout the work day. If you are designing a fitness studio, cover the walls in motivational artwork and quotes that keep you going. A playhouse might be better suited to a gallery wall of children’s artwork that can be changed as they create new masterpieces.
