In our last post, we gave you some of our favourite indoor-outdoor flooring ideas, and today, we will focus on one of the most versatile indoor-outdoor spaces – the wonderful garden shed – sharing some of our top garden shed flooring ideas. The planned purpose of your garden shed will influence the kind of flooring you should use. Modern garden sheds have all sorts of uses, from traditional outdoor storage to an extension of your home. Using your garden shed to store gardening tools versus an outdoor home gym will require very different types of flooring!
1. Treated Plywood
Pressure treated plywood is a great option if you want to use your shed to store gardening tools or heavy machinery. It is smooth, easy to paint, and because it is treated, it will be resistant to water, protecting your floor from any potential moisture damage.
2. Carpet or Laminate
Carpet or Laminate is a bold choice for a garden shed, as it is usually reserved for indoor rooms, but it can also be a great addition to your shed. Whether you opt for carpet or laminate, you can be sure that this kind of flooring will help make your shed feel more comfortable and homely. This makes laminate and carpet ideal for use in a home gym, a garden office, or outdoor lounge area. Why not consider some of our water resistant carpet? You never know when water might find its way into your shed!
Floor tiles prove to be an elegant flooring choice for your garden shed. It’s not a type of floor you will often see in traditional garden sheds, but it’s certainly a great option as it is easy to clean and maintain. Tiles are a fantastic choice of flooring for sheds used as a hobby or leisure room.
