Small Backyard? You Have Room for a 10×10 Storage Shed
You have a small backyard and the house is running over with stuff like in the photo above. Maybe there’s no room for the great big storage shed of your dreams. One where you could have a workshop, storage space, and car garage all in one.
Don’t worry, you still have many options for a shed that will be practical and even stylish! Here we are going to focus on 10×10 storage sheds. This small storage shed comes in many styles that can all be customized to your own liking (See the list at the end of the blog).
A 10×10 shed is a small storage shed that I like to call the Mighty Mini. While these sheds are small, you may be surprised at the storage options these small sheds will give you!
Maybe it’s your budget that leads you to consider a 10×10 shed or maybe it’s your small backyard. What’s amazing, is how much one can fit into a small shed if it is organized correctly. You don’t want to join the 32% of people who cannot enter their shed because its full to the front door!
With a shed, the size of a 10 x 10 storage shed you’ll want to make the most of your space. Here are a few organizing ideas to get your brain rolling.
Add Tool Hangers in your 10×10 Storage Shed
Garden tools can take up a lot of space and clutter the floor of your shed. And if you are going with a 10×10 storage shed, then keeping the floor clear must be a priority.
It won’t take long at all until you can barely walk into the portable storage building to find what you need. Hanging the garden tools up as shown in this photo will be one way to keep your 10×10 backyard shed organized.
Imagine a 10×10 shed without shelves. If all the gas cans, power tools, and boxes would simply be on the floor, finding what you need would be a disaster.
In this case, the shed owner has a larger workbench/shelf which could work great for a small area to do small projects. On top of that, we find two narrower shelves that are a lifesaver in terms of organization.
There are 1001 ways to organize inside your 10×10 storage shed. Head over to Funky Junk Interiors for great ideas to turn those junk pallets into useful storage inside your 10 x 10 storage shed.
You could also simply take a power screw gun with long screws and make hangers on the framing studs for tools, cords and many other things. With a very small amount of work, you can keep your small 10×10 shed decluttered.
Hook Up with Home Depot… Hooks for your 10×10 Storage Shed
Hose hooks, bike hooks, tool hooks, you name it. You can find them all at your local Home Depot.
You can install them to the rafters of your 10×10 storage shed and hang things to keep them out of the way. There’s no reason to have things laying around inside your 10 x 10 storage shed! The more organized your walls are, the more space you’ll have to store the rest of your stuff.

How much will your 10×10 storage shed cost?
Now comes the big question, how much does a 10×10 Storage Shed cost?
That depends on the level of quality you want or the style of your 10×10 shed. Keep in mind that some sheds give you much more cubic interior space than others. For example, the 10×10 Premier Dutch Barn might give you 50% more interior storage space than a 10×10 Minibarn Shed.
Some factors that you may also want to consider is cost for landscaping around your shed. Of course, this is optional, but if you are interested in shed landscaping, our “Shed Landscaping: 8 Styles, 8 Steps & More” article is a helpful resource.
In most cases, you get what you pay for in a shed.
