Make the most of those summer celebrations with an enviable backyard hosting space. Creating a great entertainment area can be as simple as converting your backyard storage shed. We picked up a few helpful pointers from past customers and the FYI Channel’s He Shed She Shed. With these tips you’ll be well on your way to creating the perfect outdoor entertainment space.

  1. Start with your shed. If you’ve already got a Tuff Shed building in your backyard, you’ve got a great head start. If not, we’ve got plenty of styles that will work great for the backyard events you have in mind. A modern style like our Lean-To or Premier Pro Studio can make a great open space for entertaining.
  2. Plan the space. Is your backyard already primed for outdoor entertaining? If so, your shed can simply be used as the serving area for backyard get-togethers. The party shed is just the beginning of your backyard entertaining. You may want to plan for a bigger space with a deck or patio alongside the shed. A great example is this tiki shed! With a bar top and separate seating areas inside and on the porch, there’s plenty of space for you and a few friends to kick back and relax
  3. Pick a theme. Take your shed to the next level with a fun décor theme. A beach-themed shed is always crowd favorite with it’s laid back vibe, but there are so many other options as well. Turn your space into a disco bar with neon lights and a checkerboard floor. Maybe you’d like a more sophisticated space with bistro tables and café lights. The possibilities are endless and our Pinterest boards are a great place to grab some décor inspiration.
  4. Keep it stocked. No matter if you have a wet bar, a small refrigerator, or a bar cart, be sure to keep it well supplied. Our interior workbenches and shelf upgrades are great for sturdy, built-in storage. For a more custom shelf to keep all your drink accessories organized, we suggest our DIY Pallet shelf!


There’s no doubt that the best place to enjoy a warm summer night is a backyard party shed-especially if it’s a Tuff Shed building. For a little extra inspiration, take a look at a few of our favorite sheds.
