Sheds have become an essential part of our backyards and choosing a colour can be overwhelming, especially when we are not exactly sure what we are after.

Depending on the model and manufacturer of the garden shed that you are after, there are a maximum of twenty-five (25) colours to choose from.

The Zincalume which looks simply like galvanised steel and the rest are actual colour steel panels. Paint is chemically burnt onto the steel so it wont rust, peel or fade in any weather.

New names have cropped up for some of the colours but pretty much they are the same colours from the Colorbond palette. The following colours are the same or extremely similar:

• Classic Cream ~ Smooth Cream
• Cottage Green ~ Caulfield Green
• Pale Eucalypt ~ Mist Green
• Paperbark ~ Merino while
• Woodland Grey ~ Slate Grey

    Obviously it’s been a while since you originally wrote the blog Krisztian and since then I note that Bluescope have released a new colour range and spanbilt has extended it’s colour range to include slate grey

    • Hi Ricardo, Thanks for the message and feedback. It was a while ago but we do have Slate Grey mentioned under Spanbilts range and it certainly is a very popular colour. Regarding the new colours from BlueScope- they are pretty cool and our manufacturers are yet to update their range with them. I have however added a note about them in the foot of the blog thanks to your prompt. We like to keep our content current so we do apprecaite your feedback
