What To Consider Before Buying a Shed
There are many things to consider before buying a shed. Before purchasing a shed, it’s a good idea to know what you want and need ahead of time. One of the first things to determine before buying a shed is what type of shed material will you pick? Each shed type comes with pros and cons. For example, metal sheds are rot and insect resistant, but prone to rust and leaks. Plastic sheds are low maintenance and easy to move around, but are not customizable. Wooden sheds are strong and can last a lifetime, but tend to cost more upfront.
Once you choose the type of shed material you want, you should consider how you plan to use your shed. Do you want to use it for small-item storage? As a pool house? A garden shed or workshop? How do you plan to use your shed now? 5 years from now? 20 years from now? Check out the infographic below to learn more about shed-buying considerations!

What Type Of Backyard Shed Is Right For Me?
Even after you have settled on the type of material, size, and budget, you still need to select your shed style! Even two different sheds of identical size will have different storage capabilities and usability. See below for all of Dutch Country’s different shed styles!
Utility Sheds & Barns
If you are in need of a simple backyard storage solution, then a Utility Shed, Mini Barn, Or Lofted Barn may be the best choice for you! All the sheds below feature large, double doors – perfect for maneuvering large equipment, such as lawnmowers, leaf blowers, tractors, ATVs, and other vehicles, in and out. These sheds also offer a great place to keep your tools or gardening equipment safe and organized.
The utility shed is a highly practical storage shed that does not have the look of a barn – great for those who prefer a simpler look. It is also one of the most economical choices and can easily be used to store whatever you have in mind! If you love the more traditional barn look, the Mini Barn is the perfect choice if you simply need extra storage space or want to organize and store all of your tools or gardening equipment. It can also be a great storage building to keep your seasonal equipment.
If you need a significant amount of storage space, the Lofted Barn is a great storage building for recreational items. It includes additional storage space in the loft area, allowing you to easily store items not frequently used or smaller and more fragile items
If you prefer an attractive, traditional shed style perfect for multi-use, gardening, or even as an at-home office space, then a Garden Shed or Lofted Garden Barn may be perfect for you and your home! These two sheds are ideal for garden sheds or workshops, due to their large windows and design. Just add some shelves and hooks and you’ve got yourself a perfectly organized oasis for your summer gardening projects. Add a tool bench and a few pegboards, and you’ve got a workshop! Garden sheds are a great choice for hobbyists of any kind.
These sheds are also an ideal space for storage. The Lofted Garden Barn features a unique U-shaped loft that allows for greater versatility and storage room for seasonal items, tools, and gardening equipment. Garden sheds can easily be used as a multi-purpose building, or as an at-home office, art studio, and more!
