Say goodbye to the dusty and unorganized garden shed, and opt for a visually appealing and multi-functioning backyard hut. Take a look at some creative ideas that will add some exciting texture to your outdoor space!

Backyard Lounger

Can you think of a more fun way to enjoy your pool parties? The sleek style of this reimagined shed shouts “luxury” and is the perfect addition to your backyard! Imagine sitting on this mini deck with your friends, string lights galore, and a cocktail in hand! We can’t think of a better way to spend a summer evening by the pool with friends.


While Ariel cleans your pool, the kids can romp around their very own playhouse! Furnish their clubhouse with some decorative chairs, a kitchenette and an art table! The kids will love playing pretend in this mini-home. 

Styled Storage

We know what you’re thinking: “… but I actually need my shed for storage!” That doesn’t mean you can’t make it aesthetically appealing for your yard. After all, Ariel is too awesome to store in a dusty old hut! A fresh coat of paint (inside and out), some new shelves and a window to let in the natural light when you are looking for your items might be the way to go.

Snack Bar

This one might be our favorite! With a garage style door as a window and high top seating, your friends and family will envy your luxurious backyard amenities. Serve nachos, chips and dip, burgers and drinks for a five-star experience! Snack time, anyone?

Office Space

Tired of working inside? Need to keep an eye on the kids while they go swimming? Take your tasks to your new outdoor office and breathe in that fresh air! Feel like you’re on a mini vacation while still being productive. You can also use this space as an art studio.


We all know that plants around your pool end up in your pool with one dash of a light breeze. Move some of the plants into your new greenhouse! This little yard quest requires several windows to make your sheltered garden happy. Connect your hose, add some tables and shelves and you’ve got a relaxing nature hub to retreat to!
