Do you have a lofted barn? Are you ready to take that lofted barn to the next level? Having a lofted barn isn’t just enough, you have to know how to use that new space effectively. Here’s some tips on what you can do to get the most out of your lofted barn!
- It’s normal to have chemicals in our barns and sheds. But make sure that these are protected from kids, animals and even from spilling. Most yard chemicals are extremely toxic so take care to have these put in a special place or plastic container to contain them.
- If you have a lot of tools in your lofted barn you might want to consider adding a pegboard for tools. This simple addition can help keep you organized and make everything really accessible. Another added feature is you can get the special pegboard hooks for lawn tools, making a designated space for your broom, rake, shovel, etc.
- If you are just stacking everything that you are storing in your shed on the floor you are losing out on a lot of usable space. You can modify your walls with shelves to get things up off the floor, which not only will help organize and protect them, but will add more floor space for things that don’t fit on shelves, like lawnmowers or snow blowers. If you don’t have the technical expertise to do them yourself, you can buy a variety of free standing shelves in a variety of materials from metal to wood and even plastic.
- Use a hose reel or cord organizer. Aren’t you tired of tripping over cords? Isn’t it always that case that when you want to use your hose or power cord it gets tangled up in a big knot, taking twice as long to do the task done you were wanting to do? Using a cord reel that can be mounted to a ceiling, wall or floor can help. They are available for all types of cords and hoses. Or you can simply look for a hook that will keep all your loops in one spot. You can usually pick up this low end version at the hardware store for a few bucks.
By just using a few of these tips you’ll be able to get more space out of your lofted barn than you ever thought possible.
