The 8 x 6 shed is one of the most practical garden buildings of them all, as its mid size design means that it can store a more than adequate amount of tools and equipment for a typical small garden and yet it won’t take up too much precious space. WhatShed bring you reviews of all garden buildings in all sizes and styles, so we know what to look for when selecting 8 x 6 sheds that are truly exceptional for our league table.
With such a large amount of 8 x 6 sheds to choose from, whether made of wood, metal or plastic, selecting the 20 best was far from easy. When you think of a typical 8 x 6 shed, you may picture a wooden garden building with an apex roof, but as our league table shows high quality mid sized sheds come in many styles and in different substrates as well. We always rate value for money highly, but you’ll find an 8 x 6 shed to suit every budget in this run down of the 20 best. What we especially liked about this shed is that it has been pressure treated, which means that it has long lasting protection against wet rot and insect attack. This is the second metal shed to make our top three, but from a distance you could be mistaken for thinking that this particular 8 x 6 shed is made from metal.
In common with all the galvanised steel sheds we review it’s very durable, and in this case we were pleased to see that it was backed up by a 12 year cladding guarantee.
Log burning stoves are becoming increasingly popular as a greener way to heat the home, and potentially a way to save on household bills as well. As well as this value adding feature, we were also impressed with the durability of the main body of the shed itself. This 8 x 6 shed may lack some of the additional features and grand styling of many of its competitors that surround it in the upper reaches of this WhatShed league table, but it makes up for that by offering excellent value for money for what is a very well constructed and reliable shed. The OSB floor is itself slightly thicker than the felt covered roof, and it also has integrated joists. This is the highest placed plastic 8 x 6 shed in our league table, and it earns its position by representing perfectly the advantages that PVC can bring as a substrate for garden buildings. Appearance wise, it shares the style of a typical apex timber shed with wide opening double doors, but we were impressed by its subtle grey colour scheme that makes it look surprisingly stylish. There are many factors that influence where a shed is positioned within our league table of the 20 best 8 x 6 sheds, which is why we’ve already seen examples that exhibit very useful additional features or which provide outstanding value for money. The curved roof looks different to any other roof, but it performs just as well as the pent roofs we often see when it comes to carrying rainwater away. The majority of metal sheds that we see in all sizes are either a variation of silver, which is good for those who like a clean modern look for their garden buildings, or green, which is ideal for consumers who want a shed that will blend into a garden background.
It’s not only the paintwork that attracted us to this shed however, as the hot dipped galvanised cladding makes it very tough and durable as shown by the 15 year non perforation guarantee provided by Emerald. This is another plastic shed that offers excellent value for money, and thanks to its white PVC cladding we feel it will fit in perfectly with homes who already have white PVC products on display in the form of conservatories, doors, or a PVC roof line. Firstly, it has both an attractive cross hatched window and a translucent panel in the roof, so there’s lots of light in the interior which is ideal for people who also want to use their 8 x 6 shed as a place to relax or carry out craft work or a hobby.
The top ten of our list of the 20 best 8 x 6 sheds available online in the UK today is rounded off with the most expensive entry on the list, but it has so many positive features that it is only the thousand pound price tag which stops it achieving a much higher position.
BillyOh make a wide range of timber sheds in all sizes, but thanks to its clever design and a very affordable price tag this is their 8 x 6 shed that we rate the highest.
If you want a metal shed, with all the practical benefits that brings in terms of strength and maintenance requirements, that has the appearance of a wooden shed then this could be an ideal choice for you.
All fixtures and fittings are included, so it’s quick and easy to construct, and once assembled it feels very strong and sturdy despite the lightweight nature of its cladding. This strong and reliable 8 x 6 shed has the traditional look that we all love in garden buildings, with an apex roof that quickly channels water away being positioned above smooth and tough tongue and groove cladding. There are two stand out features which raise this 8 x 6 shed above its competitors and elevate it into our list of the 20 best.
This is the top end model from the BillyOh range, and yet it still represents good value for money for such an attractive timber 8 x 6 shed. The tongue and groove cladding used for the walls, which is covered by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, is thicker than that used on other sheds from the same manufacturer, as is the frame. This is the most traditional looking metal 8 x 6 shed thanks to its stark silver colour scheme, which is one of the reasons that it isn’t placed higher up our WhatShed league table. To add to this value for money a 10 year cladding guarantee is provided by Yardmaster, and an anchor kit is included as well to secure the building itself to a suitably sized level area of concrete or patio.
The Woodland Trust is an important charity that protects and maintains wooded areas across the United Kingdom, so they make an ideal partner for this feature packed 8 x 6 shed.
Another advantage of this particular shed is that it has a modular design; this means that the white cladding sheets, arranged in a shiplappattern, come readily assembled and simply slot into place along a strong steel frame. This is the third 8 x 6 shed from the BillyOh range to feature in our top 20 league table, and yet this is the very different from its stable mates and indeed from all the other timber sheds that have made this list.
We were pleased to see that high grade tongue and groove cladding had been used throughout, and indeed that it comes with the reassurance of a 10 year guarantee. This is the second 8 x 6 shed on our list to feature a reverse apex orientation and again we would recommend this kind of shed to people who are looking for a spacious storage facility but whose lawns are considerably narrower than they are wide. Interlocking shiplap cladding is used for both the reverse apex roof and the walls, although OSB sheeting is used for the floor.
This plastic resin 8 x 6 shed may be at the foot of our top 20 league table, but that is no indication of its build quality or what it has to offer the customer.
The cladding has an off white colour which the manufacturers refer to as sand, and the double doors and roof both have a dark chocolate brown colour.
Well done then to the Grandale Eight metal shed which takes the accolade of being the highest ranked 8 x 6 shed in what has been a very competitive category. Slough features type A simple gable wall roof twofold doors and slope and whole of the windows and devote the space entirely to inviolable storage.
It not only provides a safe and secure place for you to store gardening tools and equipment, and more, it can also add to the visual appeal of your garden as a whole. Here at WhatShed we review every kind of garden building, from sheds to summer houses, so we know what makes a superior garden storage shed. Later, in our ‘editor’s thoughts’ section, we’ll reveal the criteria we used to define a garden storage shed, but we were pleased to find twenty high quality examples. This tongue and groove garden storage shed is far from the cheapest on our list, yet we still feel that it represents good value for money when its visual appeal, durability, and storage capacity have been taken into consideration.
What impressed us most about this garden storage shed, and which is largely responsible for its lofty position, is that it’s not only very good looking, it’s very tough as well.
One of the great things about a garden storage shed, is that they are available in all substrates: wood, metal and plastic.
What caught our eye instantly when we saw this six foot by five foot garden storage shed is its stunning mountain blue colour scheme. The effectiveness and usefulness of metal clad sheds is shown by the fact that they occupy two of the top three positions in our garden storage shed league table. We were almost as impressed by the looks of this garden storage shed as we were by the price tag attached to it. This is the second BillyOh garden storage shed in a row, but this one is timber clad and a very different shed altogether. We were again impressed by the excellent value for money provided by this shed, which is something we’ve learned to associate with the BillyOh range in general.
This is the first plastic garden storage shed to gain a place inside our top twenty league table, and it offers significant advantages over both wood and metal sheds.
We know that many people prefer the traditional appearance of a wooden garden storage shed, and would be put off by the thought of having something too obviously plastic looking in their garden. This is the smallest garden storage shed to gain a position inside our top twenty league table, with its base size of approximately five foot by three foot. Whilst it is relatively small, this garden storage shed is among the very toughest that we’ve seen, and it’s this that helps it gain a place within the top half of our league table.
This shed has a lot in common with our table topping garden storage shed, including a sizeable and very useful eight foot by six foot storage area, and a traditional wooden design underneath an apex roof. One other advantage brought by the overlap cladding on this garden storage shed is that it creates a very rustic appearance that we know shed traditionalists will especially appreciate. We now have another overlap clad garden storage shed, and whilst we generally prefer the reliability and resilience of a shiplap or tongue and groove shed this again shows the advantages that an overlap shed can bring. One reason that the manufacturer of this garden storage shed has been able to offer such a long guarantee with it, is that it has been given an initial pressure treatment. If you worry that a plastic clad garden storage shed may look a little bland or even cheap, then we recommend that you take a look at this six foot by six foot model from Keter. This is probably the best illuminated plastic garden storage shed that we’ve reviewed, as not only does it incorporate a small square window on a side panel, it also has a skylight in the roof. One of the advantages of a pent roofed garden shed such as this is that they are much less obtrusive than a typical apex roofed shed, meaning that they won’t detract from the appearance of the garden itself, and also that they can be positioned away from the gaze of passers by and potential thieves. Whilst it has overlap rather than tongue and groove cladding, we still found this to be a visually pleasing garden storage shed, thanks to the use of a single hinged door on the left hand side which then has two styrene windows alongside it. We always like to see a garden storage shed that is well built and yet has a look all of its very own, which is why this Aero shed gains a place inside our WhatShed league table.
The other design feature that really stood out with this garden storage shed is the two long and thin windows on either side, meaning that the interior is very well illuminated when the sun is shining. As we’ve already seen in this WhatShed league table, a metal garden storage shed can produce a lot of benefits when compared to a wooden shed, primarily that they typically need much less maintenance and are also easier to install. The base area of approximately six foot by five foot provided by this garden storage shed puts it very much in the middle of the sheds featured here. An apex roof is both a traditional and practical way to top a garden storage shed, as it creates extra headroom and vertical storage space inside the shed, and also ensures that rain or snow is quickly swept away. We were equally impressed by the high quality of components used in this seven foot by seven foot garden storage shed, as represented by the shiplap cladding used for the walls. With its base area of almost eight foot by eight foot, this is the largest garden storage shed to gain a place inside our top twenty league table.
This may not be the most attractive or intricately garden storage shed that we’ve seen, but we feel that it has a contemporary look that should fit in well with gardens that already have white PVC structures in them. A very traditional looking garden storage shed such as this will always appeal to us, especially as it has the build quality and durability that we’ve come to associate with the BillyOh range of timber sheds.
The second thing to catch our attention was just how tall it is, with its felt covered apex roof reaching a peak height of 2.22m, or well over seven foot. If you’re one of the many people who like the traditional appearance of a mid sized pent shed, then this six foot by four foot model is certainly one to add to your shortlist. The lower aspect of a pent roofed garden storage shed can make them feel a little cramped at times, but that isn’t so much of a problem here as it will normally be used for short periods of time as the owner simply moves things in and out of storage. This plastic clad garden storage shed would be a good choice for a garden that’s shallow, and yet is also relatively wide. Another unusual, and yet very welcome, feature of the doors is that they have a row of tiny windows running along them. The final garden storage shed in our WhatShed league table has a unique design, although it isn’t immediately obvious.
We were also pleased to find that this door can be positioned on either end of this garden storage shed, so it can be adapted to fit each individual garden.
This is one of the most attractive storage sheds that we’ve seen, in any substrate, and it belies the image that some people have when they think of a plastic clad garden storage shed. The other design features that really caught our eye when we saw this garden storage shed were the overhanging roof which gives added protection against rain and sun on all four sides, and the small rectangular window at the top of the door. When we review Duramax sheds we always find them to be tough and reliable, which is one reason that they take two places in this garden storage shed league table.
Our first task when compiling this league table was defining just what a garden storage shed is. With such a large range of sheds to choose from, made of wood, plastic and metal, selecting our overall champion was a difficult task.
Garden sheds are part of the fabric of the United Kingdom, they’re more than a building they’re a national symbol. Here at WhatShed we review all kinds of garden building, in all sizes and at all prices, so we know what makes one garden shed stand out from its competitors.
To distinguish a garden shed from workshops and small storage sheds, we have only considered sheds that are at least six foot by four foot in area, and that are a maximum of eight foot by eight foot. High quality garden sheds can take many forms, but the timber apex shed is a timeless design classic, and this heavy duty shed from Champion is a prime example of just why it’s so effective and so in demand. With a base area of eight foot by six foot, there’s lots of room to move around in inside, and the tall ridge height of 2.21m means that it never feels claustrophobic. The vast majority of garden sheds within our top 20 league table have a timber construction, and yet the runner up spot goes to a shed that’s very different. We’ve reviewed lots of garden sheds made by Shed-Plus, and we’re invariably impressed by their strength and design quality. Added value is given by the initial pressure treatment that has been applied to the tongue and groove cladding. Even with overlap cladding, it still feels strong and resilient when assembled, and the cladding is still effective at carrying rainwater away. Not all gardens share the same dimensions, or even the same shape, so it makes sense for garden sheds to come in different shapes as well. This is one of the toughest garden sheds we’ve seen, thanks not only to the tongue and groove cladding used throughout but also to the thicker than average 34 x 34mm frame. This is one of the largest garden sheds in our WhatShed league table, which means that it’s also one of the most flexible buildings on our list.
We were pleased to find that although it’s relatively large in size, the asking price wasn’t.
This is the second of the plastic garden sheds to make our top twenty list, and once again this has the advantage of being maintenance free other than a hose down occasionally to clean it. Built from a tough resin, there’s no need to worry about the colours fading over time, unlike some of the older plastic garden sheds that we see. This is the first of our top twenty garden sheds available online in the UK to feature a pent rather than apex roof.
Some garden sheds with pent roofs can seem a little restrictive once inside, but we were pleased to find that this wasn’t the case here, thanks to a taller than average eaves height of 1.85m or just over six foot. We always prize value greatly when it comes to all kinds of garden building, but it also has to be allied to high quality components and design.
Of course, for this price there have to be certain trade offs: for example, overlap cladding is used rather than tongue and groove cladding, and the roof and floor are made of solid sheet material.
As we explained earlier, all of the garden sheds to feature in this league table have to include windows as we feel that this is one of the factors that differentiate them from small security or storage sheds. Looks wise, this adheres closely to the style of apex garden sheds that have been enhancing British gardens for many decades now. Another feature that we particularly liked about this eight foot by six foot shed is that it has a bank of four windows that run down the full length of one side.
Whilst most of the garden sheds we review may lack the exciting and innovative designs that we see on some other garden buildings, it’s this traditional appeal that many people like so much. Its compact footprint makes it a good choice not only for people who are looking for a reliable garden shed on a tight budget, but also those who don’t have too much garden space to spare. When garden space is severely limited, but you still want to enjoy the many advantages that garden sheds bring, this corner shed can be a perfect solution. We were pleased to find that tongue and groove cladding had been used for the walls, even though cheaper solid sheet material had been used for the roof and the floor. The BillyOh range of garden sheds are very diverse in their make up, but they all have certain elements in common. The first thing that we noticed about this building is that it’s taller than we usually see with BillyOh garden sheds. Garden sheds are among the most practical garden buildings of them all, but it’s good to see that they can still have an individual look that grabs the attention for all the right reasons.
It has a seven foot square base area, and the offset apex roof reaches a ridge height of 2.15m so it feels comfortable and spacious inside. Pent sheds have loyal fans across the country, as they provide a good standard of protection against the elements without standing out too much or creating a shed that’s much taller in one area than another. What caught our eye most about this particular pent shed is that it has three well sized windows on the larger end panel, creating a very well lit interior to work or relax in.
We feel that six foot by six foot garden sheds are an ideal size for most small domestic gardens, as they can hold a good amount of tools and equipment and still have enough room to move around in, and yet they won’t take up too much garden space that may be in short supply. We also liked the use of high quality redwood tongue and groove cladding throughout, especially as it’s supported by a 50 x 38mm frame.
If you think that all plastic garden sheds look the same, then you certainly haven’t seen this beautiful model from Grossfillex. A single door is centrally positioned at the front of this six foot by five foot shed, and once again it has a unique look all of its very own thanks to a rectangular window placed at the top of it.
This is one of the most attractive traditionally styled garden sheds that we’ve seen thanks to the high quality smooth planed timber that’s been used for the cladding and the slightly overhanging apex roof. Two features that we did like were the wide opening double doors and the opening window which means that it’s easier to ventilate than many timber clad garden sheds that we review.
Unlike the other BillyOh models that have made it into our list of the 20 best garden sheds that can be purchased online in the UK today, this one has overlap cladding. In common with the other garden sheds from this manufacturer, there is no flooring supplied. With so many garden sheds to choose from, made from both timber and plastic, selecting the top twenty, and then the top one, was a hard task. Because they are more compact they can typically be more affordable too, and the 8 x 6 wooden sheds will be quicker and less expensive when it comes to retreatment time.
When collating the list we considered many factors including price and value for money, additional features and warranty periods, durability and build quality, and of course how they look.
The number one shed on our list then is actually a metal shed, but its green and cream design means that it catches the eye for all the right reasons, and is suitable for those people who don’t like structures that look too metallic. With hot dipped galvanised steel cladding keeping rain out, and the apex roof sliding water away, the threat of rust is also greatly reduced as shown by the very reassuring 20 year manufacturer’s guarantee. The runner up position goes to the second cheapest shed on our list, but it isn’t simply its price alone that takes it to such a lofty height. That’s because the metal cladding has been painted in a mid brown colour which has then been arranged in a shiplap fashion.
We wouldn’t be surprised, however, to see it last much longer than that without any perforations appearing because of rust. To make the most of them, however, you need to have a plentiful supply of logs and firewood to hand, and that’s where this garden building can prove very useful. Tongue and groove cladding is used throughout, including the floor which isn’t something that we always see on an 8 x 6 shed, and we were pleased to find that toughened glass had been used for the windows. Whilst the roof and floor are both made of solid sheet material, a cost effective option that enables such an affordable price to be offered to the customer, the walls are made of 12mm tongue and groove cladding, and it was good to see that the cladding is protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee even though this is reliant upon the customer carrying out annual preservative retreatments. This is very important as it protects the potentially vulnerable flooring from the threat of ground moisture.
The floor is made of special anti-slip polycarbonate which makes for a safer interior, and we liked the way that the interior is well illuminated as well thanks to an integrated skylight in the roof. This particular 8 x 6 shed, however, gains a place within the top 10 thanks in a large part to its unique good looks as well as its practicality and durability.
As tightly interlocking tongue and groove cladding is also used throughout, you can be confident that whatever is stored inside this 8 x 6 shed is kept dry, whatever the weather.
We always like to see sheds that stand out stylistically however, as long as they are aesthetically pleasing as well, and that’s certainly the case here.
Another feature that we welcomed is the integrated entrance and exit ramp, and because of the non-flammable nature of the metal substrate we can imagine this being used as a place to store motorcycles all year round, as well as acting as a secure, window free and spacious 8 x 6 shed.
It follows the traditional apex shed design that we often see used for a plastic 8 x 6 shed, and yet it earns its place within the top 10 in our league table thanks to some features of its very own.


We also liked the curved shape of the double doors, and they open to a very accommodating width. It’s not the only 8 x 6 shed to be made of hot dipped galvanised steel on this list, of course, yet it still achieves a unique look as the metal has then been given a dark green PVC coating. At first glance it looks like a typical apex roofed shed but then we noticed the four tiny windows on the side panel. This makes it very easy to move tall objects in and out, and once inside they’re protected from the elements not only by the apex roof but by the tongue and groove cladding which is protected by a 10 year guarantee. Whilst up close its metal origin is unmistakable at a distance it has the look of a traditional timber garden building topped with an apex roof thanks to its brown colour scheme arranged in an overlap style. It comes complete with a 10 year guarantee against perforations caused by rust, but as the quality of materials seems to be high we wouldn’t be surprised to see it lasting much longer than this warranty period suggests. Being well manufactured, the cladding locks tightly together so that there are no gaps for water to penetrate into.
It is only the lack of a floor as standard which prevents it being placed higher up our league table, and whilst some owners may elect to screw it directly into an area of level concrete we feel that most will pay a little extra to add either a solid sheet or tongue and groove floor to their purchase.
The result of this is an 8 x 6 shed that feels stable and reliable from the moment it’s assembled. Nevertheless it has a lot to recommend it, and we even liked its modern contemporary appearance, although we know not everyone will agree.
We were pleased to see this, as an anchor kit isn’t always included as standard with a metal 8 x 6 shed at such a low price. One of the features that made it stand our from most of the other sheds of a similar size we review is that it has a reverse apex. This Duramax shed with wide opening double doors is a perfect example of the genre, and the natural toughness of the cladding, not to mention its imperviousness to rot, rust and insect attack means that it comes with a value adding 15 year guarantee. Another feature we liked is the inclusion of three windows, all of which are made of shatter resistant styrene which in itself can act as a boost to the shed’s security levels. We found this to be a very attractive shed as well, thanks to its traditional styling and the one wide opening window which is adjacent to the single hinged door. At this price, we would have liked to see tongue and groove cladding used throughout, and this is one of the reasons that this otherwise excellent and well built 8x 6 shed is near the bottom of our top 20 league table.
This apex roof is designed in a shingle pattern and has been reinforced with steel rods, and the floor too has been reinforced which makes it ideal if you plan to us this 8 x 6 shed to store heavy machinery or possibly a motorcycle inside. It’s low price and long warranty period proved impossible to beat, but there are sheds in our league table to suit all styles and all budgets. With so many varieties of storage sheds to choose from, how do you choose the one that’s just right for you?
We also wanted to ensure that they were easy to find and purchase, so we’ve only considered sheds that are sold by the UK’s ten leading online retailers of garden buildings; after all, they make up more than 95% of this market, so they’re retailers you can trust. We then ranked them according to many factors such as price and value for money, visual appeal, durability, and value adding features such as extended warranties. With a base area of approximately eight foot by six foot this is also one of the larger storage sheds in our list, which makes it suitable for those with larger gardens as well as those who want a storage facility that’s also large enough to spend time inside, or to utilise for a hobby such as carpentry. Most metal sheds that we see are either green or a silvery grey in colour, so we were pleased to something that’s both different and yet stylish as well. To add to their innate strength and durability they are also typically cheaper than their wood or plastic counterparts.
That’s because whilst we often see green coloured metal sheds, this uses a darker shade of green and it’s applied across the whole of the shed with the only contrast coming by way of the white ventilation panels. Its six foot base area is available for base price of less than two hundred pounds, with a value adding 10 year anti-rot warranty included as well.
For a start, it can’t rot or rust, and it’s immune from attack by rodents, wasps and woodworm.
This Palram shed could still appeal, however, thanks to an amber colour scheme that creates a wood like effect when viewed from a distance. This in itself can be an advantage, however, to those people who want the advantages that a well built storage shed can bring and yet don’t have a lot of lawn space available on which to situate it. That’s not only because it’s fabricated from a high grade steel that’s thicker than we usually see, but because the Australian manufacturer behind these sheds has built them to withstand winds in excess of ninety miles per hour. Another thing that stood out for us was the height of this shed, with its peak height of 2.14m greater than we see on many of the mid sized timber sheds we review. Its rustic style catches the eye even in its bare form, but it also means that it’s much easier to paint or stain than smooth planed timber.
That brings long lasting protection against rot and against insect attack as well, which is something we always like to see but don’t usually expect to see in a shed that’s as affordable as this one. This means that there’s a more than adequate supply of natural light reaching the interior, which is good news for people who want to use it as a place to work or pursue a hobby as well as for storage purposes. It also means that this seven foot by five foot shed may be able to be positioned underneath overhanging branches, allowing the owner to site it in places that would be inaccessible for an apex shed. Whilst we would have preferred tongue and groove cladding, and toughened glass rather than styrene, these are very cost effective options and we were pleased to find that these cost savings seem to have been passed on to the customer. We were immediately struck by the very modern, almost futuristic look of this shed, and yet it’s very practical too. We were also pleased to see that high quality tongue and groove cladding had been used for the timber, and that this brought with it a 10 year guarantee against rot as well.
We know that some people are still put off by the thought of having something metallic looking in their garden, however, but this Woodvale shed could allay their concerns.
We feel that these are very useful dimensions as it allows for the storage of a good amount of tools and equipment, and maybe even a lawn mower, without taking up too much lawn space. This exciting looking shed, however, retains the practicality while swapping the traditional for something more modern looking.
It locks tightly together, thus keeping rainwater out and the contents within dry, and it also creates a smooth and pleasing appearance. This brings with it obvious advantages for those who have enough garden space on which to position it. It’s also a very tough shed, and as it’s immune from concerns about rot or rust we wouldn’t be surprised to see it last far longer than the 10 year manufacturer’s warranty suggests.
The thing that immediately caught our eye about this eight foot by six foot was the bank of window that run across the full length of one side. This extra space can be utilised to the full with the addition of some stand alone shelving units, and of course it’s also welcome news for shed owners who are a little taller than average, meaning that they won’t have to stoop too much when entering through the wooden doors. It caught our eye from the moment we saw it simply because of its classic design, and the smooth planed timber not only provides excellent protection against the elements it also gives it an instantly recognisable touch of class. It also brings with it added security, in that it can more easily be positioned out of sight of passers by.
These are just large enough to allow sunlight into the interior, and yet they still make it difficult for passers by to see inside, which should make it less likely to be targeted by opportune shed thieves.
At first glance we found this to be a pent shed like many others that we review, but on closer inspection we discovered that what differentiates it is that it has not only double hinged doors at the front but also a single hinged door at the side. A 10 year guarantee has been provided by the manufacturer, although this is dependent upon the owner adding a yearly wood preserver treatment. We’ve come to expect innovative and exciting looks when it comes to the Grosfillex range of sheds, and we were pleased to see that this smallest shed within their range, with a base area of around six foot by five foot, lives up to their big reputation.
What differentiates this from the model that we looked at earlier, besides its six foot by six foot storage area, is that it has chocolate brown coloured double doors rather than being all white.
Double hinged doors such as these can often be one of the most fiddly components on a garden storage shed, but these are supplied pre-assembled and simply hook onto hinge pins that are also already in place.
We decided that all sheds featured here have to be designed with storage purposes in mind, which is why we’ve used a maximum base area of eight foot by eight foot, thus discounting larger workshops and log cabins. It’s well done then to the eight foot by six foot Ultimate tongue and groove shed, which thanks to its good looks, long warranty period, toughness and durability is named the best garden storage shed that can be bought online in the UK today.
We also wanted to make sure that all of the garden sheds featuring in our league table were easy to find and purchase, which is why we’ve only considered sheds that are sold by the ten leading online garden building retailers, who between them sell over 95% of all the sheds bought via the internet in the United Kingdom. We’ve also insisted that our garden sheds must have at least one window, as this allows the owner to look out at their garden and provides the light needed for typical garden shed activities. The apex roof itself is very good at dispersing rain water, and we were pleased to find tongue and groove cladding used throughout, which being tightly interlocking means that there’s no way for water to get into the interior. There’s also lots of natural light inside, thanks to the inclusion of two opening windows, and we were very pleased to see that they were glazed with toughened glass, which isn’t something that we usually see on the garden sheds we review. It has bold looks that we found very attractive, and we especially liked the arched tops to the double doors. The proof of this is that they account for two of the top three positions in our league table, which is a laudable and well deserved achievement. This not only gives it a long lasting protection against rot, exemplified by the 15 year warranty supplied by the manufacturer, it also means that the owner won’t have to spend time and money adding their own coats of wood preserver on an annual basis.
We do prefer tongue and groove cladding of course, as this is typically thicker and therefore more stable.
This is also helped by the apex roof, and we found it noticeable higher than most similar garden sheds we’ve reviewed.
Once again, we were pleased to find that an initial pressure treatment had been used and that this brought with it a 15 year guarantee.
The reason that it can be sold at such an affordable price is that it has overlap cladding with solid sheet material used for the apex roof, where it’s then covered by roofing felt, and for the floor.
That makes it perfect for people who want a very useful garden work or storage space, but don’t want to spend time or money on it once it has been installed. For this reason we would have liked to see a much longer warranty period than the 10 year one provided by Suncast, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it exceeding this period.
This gives it a very different look, of course, but it’s still one that we found aesthetically pleasing, and one that we feel will appeal to traditionalists.
We were equally pleased to find that the timbers had been pressure treated by the manufacturer, and that once again this meant that a 15 year warranty had been supplied by Shed-Plus.
Both of these things come together in yet another Shed-Plus building, which is why it earns a place within our top 20 league table.
The floor is supported by integrated and pressure treated floor boards however; this isn’t something that we would necessarily expect to find in such low cost garden buildings, and it helps to protect the timber as a whole from the threat of ground moisture. The inclusion of a window, or windows, brings with it a lot benefits, creating a pleasant interior that you can spend prolonged periods of time inside. On the downside, however, the timber has been dip rather than pressure treated, and it comes without a floor which must therefore be added as an optional extra.
One of the things that sets it apart, however, is that it’s been made from sustainably sourced timbers that comply with the government’s ‘sustainable homes code’. That means that this is one of the best illuminated garden sheds that we’ve seen, which makes it a great place to carry out work or a hobby activity, or to simply sit inside reading a book.
Despite its dimensions, there’s still enough room to move around in inside, and there’s also enough natural light to move around in thanks to the inclusion of two styrene windows. Its five sided design means that it can fit snugly into a corner of just about any garden, leaving more precious lawn space free.
We also liked the use of double doors, with a square window on either side, as this makes it much easier to manoeuvre wide or tall objects in and out. On the plus side, this means that they are very well built from high quality components, and that they always look aesthetically pleasing. The ridge height of 2.22m makes it good for those who need a little more headroom either for themselves or for storage purposes. Whilst this particular shed still has the apex roof that is so effective at channeling water away and keeping the interior dry, the apex itself is offset.
There’s only one window, alongside the single door, but on a sunny day this still provides an adequate supply of natural light for most purposes. For lovers of pent garden sheds, this model from Empire is definitely one for the shortlist. We were also impressed to find that the tongue and groove timber used for the walls had been pressure treated to give it long lasting protection against wet rot. This is substantially thicker than we usually see used on wooden garden sheds of this size, and means that it feels very strong and solid once the installation is complete. It’s like no shed that we’ve seen from any other manufacturer, and has a contemporary designer feel about it that will fit in perfectly with houses that have lots of modern features. By careful positioning of the shed this can also make it very hard for anyone passing by to be able to see what’s kept inside, yet it still allows natural light to reach the interior. Both of these factors also help to ensure that rain can’t penetrate into the interior, which means that it should also prove to be very durable and rot resistant. The width of the doors make it easy to carry wide and bulky items inside, and with a seven foot by seven foot base area we can easily imagine furniture being installed to transform this into a small and affordable summer house. This does, however, give it a rustic appearance that we found charming, and it also means that it provides exceptional value for money. It can be installed directly onto a level area of concrete, but we feel that it would be better to pay a little extra and have one of the two optional floors added.
This one embraces modern a little more with contrasting colors make the shed pop compared to other plastic sheds.Inside and structurally you will find this shed like most other plastic sheds.
In this way you can be sure that every 8 x 6 shed featured on this list is easy to find as well as having something special to offer.
You can be sure then that all the sheds on our list will make a good purchase, but let’s see what we rate as the very best 8 x 5 shed currently available to buy online in the UK. One other thing that we liked is the entrance and exit ramp, as this makes it very easy to use a wheelbarrow or trolley to carry heavy or bulky items through the sliding double doors.
For a price of little over two hundred pounds this has a lot to offer the customer, especially those who like the traditional and rustic appearance of classic garden sheds.
At the top is a felt covered apex roof, and while there are no windows that in itself can be a security boost as it keeps prying eyes out.
One thing that makes this metal shed stand out is that it comes with a strong and easy to assemble floor support kit. It was also good to see that the timber had been pressure treated and that it therefore came with a 15 year warranty, which is another reason that this versatile shed features so highly in our league table of the very best 8 x 6 shed that can be purchased online today.
That means this shed has the benefits of a window free design for security purposes yet still has plenty of natural light inside as well, and it’s this highly useful combination at an affordable price which makes this our favourite plastic 8 x 6 shed.
We were impressed by this shed at first sight, as the curved roof and long side windows give it a style of its very own, and we can imagine this fitting in perfectly with a modern home that has a lot of contemporary design features. The cladding itself carries a 10 year guarantee as well, and whilst this is reliant upon the customer applying yearly coatings of preservatives this needn’t be too time consuming a task on a mid sized garden shed such as this. This metal shed has a dark grey, almost black, anthracite coloured cladding with white trim around the double doors and the air vents in the gables.
This not only gives it a very attractive appearance, it also adds an extra protective layer making this shed rot and rust resistant, as well as being fire resistant to class 0 and 1. It also features one acrylic window underneath the apex roof, and with built in ventilation the interior is light and airy. Positioned just underneath the eaves they allow a decent supply of natural light to reach the interior, which always creates a more pleasant environment to spend any length of time in, but they still mean that it’s virtually impossible for passers by to find out if anything of value is kept inside the shed, which we feel makes it much less likely that it will be targeted by an opportune thief.
In common with the other sheds in this range there is no floor included as standard, but one can be added for as little as ?42 so we still believe this is a good value 8 x 6 shed and one that deserves its place in our league table. If you want a metal 8 x 6 shed that’s attractive, with sliding double doors to make it easy to store and retrieve items, at a price of less than four hundred pounds then this is well worth your consideration.
This cladding is also covered by a 10 year guarantee which we would expect with a shed of this price, even though we would have preferred to see it come with a longer warranty and to have had an initial pressure treatment rather than the less enduring dip treatment used here.
The other thing which really impressed us at this price is that the tongue and groove cladding on the walls is 14mm thick rather than the 12 that we usually see.
This means that whilst the roof is still just as effective at channelling rainwater away, its wide front and shorter depth makes it ideal for shallow gardens. With so much to recommend it, it’s only its relatively high price compared to other plastic sheds of a similar price that prevents it being placed much higher up our league table of 8 x 6 sheds.
The pitch of the roof still ensures that precipitation is quickly swept away, but its eaves height of 1.79m is a little lower than that on most of the sheds featuring within this guide. Whilst two of the windows are fixed in position, one can be opened to provide a natural source of ventilation. Because there are no windows on any other side, by careful positioning it may also be able to prevent unauthorised personnel from seeing inside, enhancing the shed’s security and creating a more private storage space.
On the plus side, it does come with a 10 year warranty against wet rot although this is dependent upon the owner adding a preservative treatment immediately after installation as well as annually thereafter. As extra strong resin has been used to create blow moulded walls, we would certainly expect this shed to far outlast the warranty provided with it, and so if your budget will run to the asking price of nearly a thousand pounds as well then this could be the perfect mid sized shed for you. This also has the highest eaves of any of the sheds in this top 20, at 2.18m, and we were also impressed by the bank of tiny windows running across the top of the double doors.

Help is at hand, with this WhatShed guide to help you find your perfect garden storage shed. Here then is our top garden storage shed available to buy online in the UK today, with nineteen excellent runners up.
We were struck by its good looks from the moment we saw it, thanks to its smooth planed timber and the addition of two windows on a side panel. We were also pleased to find that the timber has been pressure treated by the manufacturer, bringing with it a 15 year guarantee against rot. This is the highest placed metal shed in our league table, and it brings with it the natural advantage of being free from the threat of rot, so you won’t have to treat it on an annual basis. That makes it an ideal choice for people who like the idea of having something that’s as naturally tough and low maintenance as a metal shed, and yet don’t want anything that looks too metallic in their garden. That’s certainly true of this BillyOh shed; it’s the cheapest in the whole of this top twenty list, and we feel its price of only ?175 for a six foot by four foot shed represents outstanding value for money. Whilst many of the compact sheds we review have no windows, thus keeping prying eyes away from whatever is stored within, that can make it difficult to store and retrieve items, or it can necessitate the need to add an artificial source of lighting. It has to be noted however that no floor is included at this price, so one will need to be added.
That means that it is in effect maintenance free, aside from an occasional wash or hose down, and this makes it a good choice for people who want a durable garden shed that they can install and then not have to take any more effort over.
Another thing we liked about this shed was the inclusion of a skylight, allowing natural light to enter in from above while shielding the shed’s contents from passers by.
As it has a pent rather than apex roof it also has a less obtrusive look, and it may be possible to hide it behind a fence or wall thus boosting its security. If you live in a windy or exposed area this could be the shed for you, especially as it comes with a 20 year guarantee as well.
It’s something that we always like to see on wooden sheds as it brings with it a 15 year guarantee without the need for annual retreatments to be undertaken. Even more importantly it brings with it a great value price tag of not much more than two hundred pounds, which is much less than we’d usually expect to see attached to a seven foot by five foot wooden shed with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee supplied by the manufacturer.
It also means that the owner is freed from the onerous task of having to add their own coats of wood preserver every year, which is something that we often find required on garden buildings that are much more expensive than this one. The square shed has a a square base with a slightly pitched apex roof over the top of it to carry rainwater away.
We also found it reassuringly tough and stable once assembled, as the polypropylene cladding has been given a steel reinforcement that brings with it a 10 year guarantee. Its asking price of not much more than two hundred pounds, with a 10 year guarantee included as well, represents very good value, and it’s this that earns this shed the final position inside our top ten. That’s because the roof isn’t arranged in a straight pitch, as we would expect to see in a pent shed for example, but in a smooth and eye catching curve.


It is a little more expensive than some sheds we see of a similar price however, and this stops it from rising even higher in our league table of the UK’s best garden storage sheds that can be bought online right now.
We really liked its coffee coloured cladding with dark chocolate brown detailing, and the overlap style arrangement of the metal panels also helps to emphasise the timber like appearance.
We also liked the smooth opening double sliding doors, as they make it very easy to gain access to the shed whilst carrying heavy or bulky items such as bags of soil or sand.
It does this by having an offset apex roof, which means that the ridge of the roof, which comes in at a height of 2.15m, is far more towards the left hand side of the shed than the right. Once assembled it feels both strong and stable, and so it could be a good choice for areas that are sometimes affected by strong winds. Whilst it can be used for relatively large scale storage purposes, it could also be used as a workshop for either business or leisure purposes, although as it features no windows for security reasons an artificial source of lighting would need to be installed if the owner plans to work inside it. Only the relatively high asking price stops this plastic shed gaining a place in the upper half of our league table.
This makes it one of the brightest and therefore most welcoming wooden sheds of this size that we’ve seen, so whether you’re working in this shed or retrieving items from it, you’ll have plenty of light to help you.
This shed also comes with a 10 year warranty, and if it had also come with an integrated floor, and had been just a little cheaper, then it could have enjoyed an even higher ranking in our league table. Also impressive is the rectangular window alongside the single hinged door, and we were pleased to find that it contained high quality glass rather than styrene glazing that we more usually see in sheds of this size and price.
We would have liked to see an extended warranty included, however, rather than the statutory one year given here, and that accounts for its position on the final quarter of our league table. We were also impressed by how strong this shed is, thanks to its blow moulded resin substrate which is reinforced by steel. This means that when all the doors are open it looks as if the shed itself has folded out, and it’s incredibly easy to move items in and out. On a shed as compact as this, however, that shouldn’t be too costly or time consuming a task.
What we liked most about it was the pastel blue colour scheme, with nicely contrasting white trim; it’s subtle and yet we feel it’s sure to attract compliments from all who see it. With a 10 year warranty included, and the likelihood that this tough shed will actually last much longer, only the high price tag stops this from being placed much higher up our league table of the very best garden storage sheds that can be purchased online. This instantly caught our eye, but what we liked most about the doors is that they create a very wide opening.
It makes the installation process as a whole simple and straight forward, so this would make a good purchase for someone who is new to the world of shed assembly and installation. They also have to be sheds designed to be positioned upon the garden, so we have also ruled out lean-to and corner sheds.
From sheds to greenhouses, the independent reviews from WhatShed can help you find your ideal garden building.
A high quality shed is an essential purchase for any keen gardener, providing a safe and convenient location to store all the tools and equipment needed to keep a garden looking good all year round.
Other considerations have included price and overall value for money, style and design, and durability. We were even more pleased that the timbers had also been pressure treated, which gives it a fifteen year warranty against rot. With a key operated lock included as well, we feel that even though this isn’t one of the cheaper garden sheds in our list, it still represents good value for money. We also appreciated the two square window on the side panels, which are something that we don’t often see on plastic sheds. This shed is more compact than its compatriot in the top position, with a base area of six foot by four foot, but that makes it suitable for gardens that don’t have a lot of spare space.
The framing was also noticeably thicker than average, so this feels very stable when assembled. This difference can be more pronounced however on larger sheds than the eight foot by six foot one featured here.
What we liked most about the roof, however, is that it’s made of onduline, which is a modern alternative to traditional roofing felt. It could also make a comfortable environment to pass a few hours in at the end of a day, and the wide opening double doors make it easy to bring furniture or other large objects in and out. As the timber has all been pressure treated however, it’s guaranteed to be free of rot for at least 15 years which we think adds even greater value to this range of garden sheds.
Once again this has a unique look that people will either love or hate, thanks to its beige and brown design and two rows of tiny glazed windows across the upper portion of the double doors. This is, however, one of the smaller sheds in our league table, and its higher price compared to the Keter model accounts for their relative placings. Whilst the pent roof has enough of a pitch to ensure that rain, and even snow, quickly slides away it also creates a less obtrusive look. It can also, however, bring added vulnerability as passers by may be able to see what’s being store within the building and this can attract opportune thieves. This prevents this cleverly designed building from climbing up our list of the very best garden sheds.
While that will appeal primarily to building contractors, it’s also good news for garden owners who are concerned about the environment and who want to control their carbon footprint. We also feel that this represents good value for money, and it’s only the lack of a longer warranty period that would have come with an initial pressure treatment that stops it from being ranked in the top half of our league table. We did however find that it caught our eye upon first sight, partly thanks to the smooth planed tongue and groove cladding for the walls.
Overall value for money is further enhanced by the inclusion of a 10 year warranty, which we feel is acceptable for such affordable garden sheds. This also makes it much less obtrusive, especially since it has a pent rather than apexed roof. Thanks to its seven foot by seven foot base area it’s surprising just how much can fit into a small corner or the garden, although the corners do take up some of this space.
On the downside they often have short warranty periods, although the 10 years provided here is as long as we find on any timber sheds from this manufacturer, and they typically come without any flooring as standard. We also liked the bank of windows which take up the full width of one side, and we were pleased to see that guttering and a downpipe are also included as standard which is more than we’d have expected with a shed costing as little as this one.
We found the result very striking, and this simple design feature makes the shed as a whole look unlike any of the many other garden sheds we’ve reviewed.
As the shiplap cladding has been dip treated it will need to be treated regularly with wood preserver by the customer, although it does then come with a 10 year guarantee. Its six foot by five foot base area gives it a compact footprint that makes it ideal for smaller gardens, and yet the head height of 2.00m means that you won’t have to bend down too much when walking around within it. We would usually expect this to bring a 15 year warranty with it, but on this occasion it only has a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. This is significantly more than we find with most garden sheds we’ve reviewed, and means that there’s lots of space for storage purposes or simply to move around in. This is a garden shed with a lot to recommend it, and it would have earned a much higher position if it had come with an extended warranty and if it had been priced a little lower. The first thing we noticed was the blue colour scheme, but it’s very subtle giving a pastel like appearance that contrasts with white detailing. The 10 year warranty could have been longer for such a tough and well built shed, and it’s substantially more expensive then other garden sheds of a similar size, but if price isn’t a primary consideration then this should be near the top of your shortlist.
An initial dip treatment has been used by the manufacturer, and even though this isn’t as long lasting as the pressure treatment and tanalisation that we like to see we would still have expected an extended warranty of 10 years or so to be provided.
A well built six foot by six foot garden shed from a reputable company can now be had for less than two hundred pounds, making this a great choice for those looking for a new garden shed for their first home, or those looking for a low cost garden building to supplement the shed they already have.
As well as a floor we would also have liked to see an extended warranty provided, rather than the one year warranty which is the statutory minimum. It earned its place at the very top of our league table of the best garden sheds by providing very good value for money, lots of interior space, and a long 15 year guarantee which shows how effective its initial pressure treatment is.
With this long warranty period, a virtually maintenance free nature, and a very affordable price tag this deserves its place as our number one 8 x 6 shed available to buy online in the UK today. This means that a wooden floor can easily be installed, and as it will be raised up from the surface there’s built in protection from ground moisture. With the addition of a padlock, which can be bought at the same time as the shed for a price of less than ten pounds, we feel this could be a very secure 8 x 6 shed as well as a great value one.
Whilst it comes with a 10 year warranty, however, we feel this could have been much longer. A secure key operated lock is also provided, which is another reason that this could be your number one choice if its price falls within your budget.
This extra 2mm can make a noticeable difference when it comes to strength and stability, and is a very welcome addition to such a good value mid sized shed. They allow a lot of natural light to reach the interior and yet because they only occupy the upper third of the panel it’s still possible to keep valuable items out of sight of people passing by.
The eaves height is also a little taller than the majority of its competitors at 2.01m, and whilst 12 mm cladding covered by a 10 year warranty is used elsewhere on this 8 x 6 shed, the floor is significantly thicker than most that we see at 16mm.
This then is a very tough shed with a lot to recommend it, even if it does have a price to match. We know that many people prefer the look of wooden sheds, and whilst this will certainly appeal to them it also appeals to us enough to gain the top spot in our league table. A further additional feature that we welcomed is the use of toughened glass, as it’s something we rarely see in sheds of this size and price. It also represents outstanding value for money, particularly as it comes with a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty. This is added to even further by the inclusion of a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty, and this combination is enough to earn it third place in our WhatShed guide.
Another useful feature that we were pleased to see was the inclusion of an entrance and exit ramp, making it easy to manoeuvre a wheelbarrow in and out. This costs just over twenty pounds for an economy floor, however, so we don’t feel it detracts from the overall value provided. As this brings savings of both time and money, we feel that the asking price of less than four hundred pounds for this accommodatingly sized six foot by eight foot shed is more than reasonable. We were also very impressed with the SnapTite assembly system that is unique to this range of sheds. On this occasion, however, overlap cladding has been used rather than thicker and stronger tongue and groove cladding. This is a very weather resistant material, but also very lightweight so it’s relatively easy to install.
What most caught our eye, however, was the white and grey coloured cladding which has been given a woodgrain effect; we found that it created a look that’s very contemporary and at the same time traditional. It quickly carries rainwater away, and its overhang also creates a shaded and weather protected area outside of the single hinged door. It was also good to see that the door handles were holed and ready to accept a padlock, an easy way to add extra security. It caught our eye from the moment we saw it, and we feel that this is one timber shed that could easily become a talked about garden feature in its own right.
We were also pleased to see that extra reassurance is provided to the consumer by a 10 year guarantee. As the plastic cladding is also fire resistant, we can imagine it being used as an all weather store for motorcycles or ride on lawnmowers. We also felt that it added to the aesthetic appeal of the shed, and while it doesn’t try to hide its plastic origins we found it fun and pleasing on the eye. If you plan on storing large or wide items then this could prove to be a very useful feature. This is a shed with a lot to offer then, but we have seen cheaper sheds of a similar size that have more traditional good looks, and so this is reflected in its overall position within our league table. This will come in especially useful to keen gardeners who will be moving items in and out on a regular basis using a wheelbarrow. It also comes with a substantial price tag of over five hundred pounds, however, which is why it has to be content with the final position in our league table. Let’s take a look then at the UK’s top 20 garden sheds that can be bought online right now.
This then is a large shed that has classic good looks, is very strong and very durable, and it is these qualities that carry it to the top of our league table of the very best garden sheds.
As there’s also a translucent panel on the apex roof which acts as a skylight, the interior is very well illuminated which is another reason that this is one of our favourite garden sheds, albeit one that may not be to the taste of those who prefer traditional looking garden buildings.
It also makes it more affordable, and the great value price tag of less than four hundred pounds helps this good looking shed achieve such a high position. We were also pleased to see that the one side window could be opened, making this easier to ventilate and cool down than many of the garden sheds we review.
One thing that the overlap cladding does do, however, is make the building as a whole much cheaper to construct and therefore more affordable to buy.
That makes it an ideal choice for people with shallow gardens, and yet there’s still lots of room inside for storage, growing, or activity purposes. There’s a single door and single window alongside it, and with toughened glass inside it you won’t have to worry about it shattering after an accidental impact.
If you’re looking for a shed with an accommodating internal area that won’t stretch your budget, then this is certainly worth adding to the shortlist.
On a sunny day these allow more light in than you might expect, which means that finding and retrieving items is easy.
It also means that the shed is easier to hide behind a fence or wall, which is why we feel that it could be used as a security shed, especially as a key operated rim lock is included as standard. This BillyOh shed comes up with a very practical solution, which is why it gains a place in the top half of our league table. As it is, a ten year warranty is provided, although this is dependent upon the customer adding regular preservative treatments themselves to keep the warranty valid. It makes this look like an expensive shed, but in fact it’s one of the most affordable garden sheds we’ve reviewed, with a price tag of not much more than two hundred and fifty pounds. For that reason we feel that this will be especially useful who want garden sheds that are functional first and foremost, although we still found it quite pleasing to look at. It also comes with the reassurance of a 10 year guarantee against rot as long as the treatment schedule is adhered to. It only costs ?37 to add a solid sheet floor to this six foot by six foot model however, or ?51 for a stronger tongue and groove floor, and so even allowing for this we still feel it offers good value for money. If you want a well built wooden garden shed that will look different to anything your friends or neighbours have, then this is well worth considering. For its size however it is a little pricier than many of its competitors, although many will feel it’s worth paying extra for its unique and attractive styling.
With an above average asking price higher than we see on most six foot by five foot sheds as well, this prevents it from being placed further up our league table. The overhanging apex roof also caught our eye, and in conjunction with the tough PVC cladding it ensures that no water can get into the shed itself. Unfortunately, however, only a 1 year warranty is supplied, which is why this otherwise very good shed finds itself in our league table’s penultimate spot.
Nonetheless, we feel this deserves its place in our WhatShed league table thanks to its low price point and its attractive if rustic design. Whether you want garden sheds or larger metal workshops, or anything in between, WhatShed will bring you the independent reviews that can help you make a perfect purchasing every time. In this case in the form of a shed long skylight.And like many others, this plastic shed is not just plastic. It’s a welcome addition and this price, and claims this shed the number three 8 x 6 shed spot in our league table. In this way this can still be a secure environment for any valuable gardening equipment, particularly if a padlock is added to the pad bolt that’s supplied as standard.
We were also pleased to see a key operated lock provided as standard, and it’s only the above average price that stops this shed from being placed within our top 10 of the best 8 x 6 shed available today.
The medium monetary value of materials to physical body one these Barnstable sheds in the northeastern United States is garden shed plans 6 x 8.
That’s as long as any warranty period that we’ve seen on a storage shed, and when its striking and original looks are taken into account as well it was a close contender for the number one spot. Being both small and placed high up on the shed, however, they are still an effective way of ensuring shed privacy and therefore increasing its security.
It means that the panels simply snap into place along a frame, making installation easy even for those who have never installed a metal shed before.
This has been taken into account when determining its position inside our league table, but it also means that it comes at a very affordable price of just over three hundred pounds. One reason for this was the curved tops on the double hinged doors; it’s a little touch but one that we were glad to see, as it shows that the manufacturer Suncast has paid attention to design and appearance. With so many sheds to choose from, WhatShed have created this helpful guide to the very best garden sheds that can be bought online in the UK today. We appreciate, however, that not everybody likes the look of garden sheds, and we also feel that the warranty period supplied could have been longer than ten years given how durable the substrate was; these factors are what keeps it off of the top position. It’s this price tag of less than three hundred pounds that really caught our eye, especially as the timber has been pressure treated and is therefore guaranteed to last at least 15 years free of rot, which is why it gains such a lofty position in our list.
It’s also the reason that we found it so eye catching upon first sight, but that’s not the only reason that it earns a place as one of our top five garden sheds. It was also good to see that the window, which can be positioned on the right or the left, had toughened glass in it which is another security boosting feature. It is however the cheapest of all the sheds in our list, and as it also comes with a 15 year warranty thanks to the long lasting pressure treatment that has been applied we feel that this is probably the best value garden shed we’ve reviewed.
Light is provided by a series of tiny windows, but because they are so compact and placed so high up on the wall they make it practically impossible for unauthorised eyes to see within. The wall construction involves two panels on the outside and inside, then steel reinforcements in-between (like stud walls). To Purchase this design go to http view program name 6 go octet Garden slough The 6 X 8 Garden. We love the look of wood sheds, but the window and door features really set this one apart.
The flower boxes and shutters not only let natural light into the shed, but they look great.Unlike some wood shed kits, with this one everything is included, even the floor kit. The height is kept low to stay under fencelines, and the color is an off white (ivory)as to “keep the status quo”.This may put some homeowners off, but the shed has also been designed with strength in mind.
It has been tested against 115Mph winds and a heavy snow load.The benefits don’t stop there. There are also vents for airflow and ventilation.The plastic cladding has imprinted wood grain to give a wood look, but this shed isn’t the same as a wood shed.
And if you don’t like the colors, you can paint it with a special high-grade exterior acrylic latex paint.It is built strong like other Duramax sheds.
Once up you can park your push mower and gardening equipment in there, then walk away.It comes with a fixed window and double doors. Not including your foundation, the shed will assemble in around 3 – 6 hours.The shed panels are a little flimsy, but they will hold up to strong weather in anchored properly.
It isn’t for year round reliable storage.Not only is there next to no security, but the flower house is light. It does come with ground anchors, but it is most likely that your items will be what keeps this shed on the ground in moderate to strong winds.The positives about this storage tent are that the price is right, and its quick and easy to set up.
