Too much storing of objects in the house results in the area of the house becoming full and crowded.
However, just removing it is certainly not an easy thing, remembering these objects are still needed and still functioning properly, it’s just that its use is not too frequent.
The solution, you can’t help but have to provide a special storage area. If the area in the house is too full, outdoor or outdoor areas can also be a storage room for gardening equipment, clean equipment, outdoor furniture, and unused objects outside the home.
Look at the following things before building outdoor storage.
Determine what objects need to be stored in outdoor storage
By paying attention to your needs, you need to consider what objects need to be stored in outdoor storage before building outdoor storage.
Will you use it to store medium-sized objects such as gardening tools, lawn shears, lawn mowers and hoes, or you will also place large objects, such as used aquariums, ATVs, used chairs, worn tables, etc.
The need for a storage area will help you estimate the size of the outdoor storage you will build.
Do you need to install lights and electrical installations in outdoor storage?
If the place is wide enough and there are many important objects that are placed there, it’s a good idea to install an electrical installation while installing lighting.
But if the size of outdoor storage is not too large, then the installation of electricity and lights can be ruled out.
Gudang, garden shed, storage bench atau outdoor storage closet?
Warehouse, garden shed, outdoor storage closet, and storage bench, all four are storage areas that are located separately from the main house / building.
Not surprisingly, the four storage areas are often categorized as outdoor storage. The function is the same, only the size and capacity are different.
The warehouse is an area that resembles a room or room, but its location is separate from the main building.
The shape can resemble a semi-permanent building, and sometimes only made of simple construction.
Warehouses are commonly used to hold goods, both those that are still used and already unused. Warehouses are often used to store worn furniture, cleaning tools, obsolete electronic items, sports equipment, garden tools, and so on.
Because of its large size and the large number of items stored here, warehouses require electrical installations and simple lighting to make the room brighter.
In addition, there is a need for good air ventilation, so that the conditions in the room are not too humid.
Meanwhile, garden shed is an outdoor storage that is almost the same as a warehouse.
However, garden sheds are only used to store and place garden tools. For that, the location is not far from the park, yard or garden around the house.
The size is much smaller than the warehouse. Therefore, garden sheds do not really need electricity installation or lighting inside.
Garden shed can act as a focal point in an outdoor area, of course, by designing a garden shed that is stylish and looks match with the concept of a house.
Storage bench, as the name implies, this object is furniture that has dual functions, as a park bench as well as an outdoor storage area.
The storage bench has the shape of an ordinary chair or bench, but at the bottom of the stand there is a spacious area that can be used to store smaller objects or equipment.
For example, we can store children’s toys, worn pots, or grass scissors. To create more storage areas, you can provide a set storage bench, which not only acts as outdoor furniture, but also outdoor storage.
To make it look more chic, you can combine it with a harmonious table and patio. Place it in a strategic corner, so even a set of storage bench can be a focal point in your garden / yard.
Outdoor storage closet
Outdoor storage closet is usually just a small cupboard, whose size can adjust the available space.
This outdoor storage can be made by yourself, using wood, nails, and some carpentry equipment.
The design is quite simple, sometimes even the outdoor storage closet does not have a door, there is only a box-shaped cabinet with small openings at the top or side.
This storage area is often used for storing coal and wood / twigs (which can be used for BBQs or fireplaces), or for storing / storing garbage that is being composted.
Of course, the existence of an outdoor storage closet will be very useful considering that compost, coal and wood storage is impossible to do in the area of the house.
