Shed Accessories – How to Maximise Storage in Your Shed


People purchase sheds to use them as storage space and for their multi-purpose functions. however, many people do not know how to or consider how to maximize the space for storage. Using shed accessories you could improve your shed organization and accessibility to a greater degree.

With some thought, you can select common shed accessories offered by retailers like Cheap Sheds.

You can see below what kind of accessories are available:

Add Some Light

For most sheds and garages you can add additional skylight sheets. By adding a skylight you will be allowing natural light into the shed so you can see your things clearly without having to reach for a flashlight.

When adding this accessory to a steel shed it will replace either a full or a half roof panel depending on the brand you choose. However, some of our resin sheds include a skylight ridge cap which runs the length of the roof.

Another good way of letting in some light is by adding windows. You have a few options regarding the types of windows but it really depends on the type of shed you purchase. It is also best to add windows to your garden shed kit when buying one, so the correct parts are included in your shed kit saving you money and the hassle of adding it to your shed later.

Types of windows you are looking at include:

Anchoring & Security

Most models come with anchor kits or fixing kits to help secure your shed to the concrete slab.

Flooring Options

It is always recommended to lay a concrete slab for your new shed as it provides a solid and level surface for your shed. However, it’s not always an option for all people so some types of sheds come with alternative options.

For example with some Absco sheds, you can add a timber flooring kit to substitute for a concrete slab.

Resin sheds, generally come with a durable resin floor or you can add an option to your kit from the accessories. Depending on the model it could be a timber floor. Be sure to also consider a concrete foundation for more stability.

    I have an Absco Eco 1.5 x.78 and I’m wondering if the hanging shelving units or the tool racks and the threshold ramp fit my shed.

    • Hi Spencer, so those items in the list above are for the Spanbilt or EasyShed range I am sure, Absco doesn’t have many options for the smaller sheds. each brand, However, Absco being very similar they could probably be fixed in a similar way but I am not 100% sure. With that size Absco Eco you may be better off checking out Bunnings for some storage solutions which can be adapted to any shed 🙂 If you check your panelling inside your shed, are there slight gaps between the roof overhang and your sheeting? This is where the metal hooks would slot in .. very easy system and many options in hardware stores.
