Are small corner sheds any good?
Whether you're interested in adding to your storage space or room to relax by erecting a shed, a carefully selected small corner shed can provide what you need.
For example, the Tiger Deluxe Corner Shed is available in a compact 6'x6' size, allowing it to be easily tucked away in the corner of your garden. This shed's practicality belies its size, and you can enjoy the easy access of extra-large double doors, braced by strong T-hinges. The doors open to a highly durable space, bolstered by high-grade 12mm finish shiplap tongue-and-groove cladding, which is ideal for all types of garden storage and DIY or horticultural activities such as planting and potting.

Are small corner log cabins any good?
The Bengal Corner Cabin, which at 10'x10' is not quite as compact but can still be comfortably accommodated in a modest garden space. The design of this cabin is centred on maximising the available space, and it will happily house an L-shaped sofa or a pair of comfy armchairs, along with a table for drinks by the glazed double doors.

How do you make the most of a small corner garden building?
Choosing compact furniture is a great way to ensure your corner shed, summerhouse or log cabin doesn't fill up too quickly. Consider deck chairs that fold away if you want to keep your space open to possibilities other than lounging around, and a collapsible table will help to this end, too.
When decorating a corner shed, use the full height of it by hanging plants and ornaments from the ceiling. Consider hanging a mirror on one of the walls to bounce light around the space and make it feel even more roomy.
Finally, another great interior design idea for enhancing compact spaces is painting the interior of your garden building a lighter colour than the exterior. This gives the impression of additional space and, when combined with some of the ideas mentioned above, can help you create a wonderfully welcoming space to enjoy all year round.
