Add value and style to your backyard with a shed – guest blogger Danielle McAnn

Can never have enough storage – and an attractive structure can indeed add value…read what Danielle McAnn has to say…………………Joan Parcewski, Woods Real Estate Realtor

A backyard shed is an accessible, affordable and stylish option for adding extra storage space to your property. If you choose the right shed, it can even add value when it comes time to move. If you are looking at selling your home, did you know a back yard shed can actually help attract buyers?

Of course, your property’s value is not reflected entirely by the shed you have in the back yard. However, having a nice big storage shed can be the very factor that turns a potential buyer into a purchaser. Sheds are increasingly being used as an alternative to filling up the garage space or combatting the ongoing monthly fees of a storage unit. A well-kept back yard shed like those that can be found at National Sheds & Barns will not detract any value from your home. They can design sheds to fit your storage needs and can be made to your own specifications.


A back yard shed that is well-built, attractive and accessible will certainly increase the value of your property. If you have a run-down shed on your property that looks ugly, or out of place, it can actually take away from the value of your home. Try to integrate your shed into the landscape by adding climbing flowers on a trellis, camouflaging it with a display of pot plants or choosing a stylish colour that blends into the environment. Keep your shed well maintained and in good condition. Maintain its style by replacing any broken windows or handles, and keep it freshly painted. Simple maintenance will keep your shed looking good and ensure that it will add value to your home.
