Find Yourself in a Backyard Studio Shed

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton.
Creating art allows you to see the world in new ways. You pay more attention to your environment. You find innovative ways to express your ideas and communicate with the world. You get to know yourself better as you develop your craft, but most importantly, you carve out a space to enjoy life a little more.

Art can be relaxing and soothing as well as enlivening and stimulating. But you need room to create — cue a backyard studio. An art studio shed gives you the perfect place to create and explore.

What is an art studio shed?

A backyard studio shed is a dedicated space to explore artistic pursuits. It is specifically designed to incite creativity and facilitate the production of your art. A backyard art studio allows you to reclaim your dining room table or the corner of your bedroom that you’ve been using for your art. It gives you an intentional space where you can conceptualize and create your next piece of art.

Benefits of an art shed

An art studio shed gives you a place to make art just steps from your back door. You deserve a life full of joy and delight, and a place to create helps to make that possible. Whether you paint, draw, sculpt, write, or engage in any other type of art, you shouldn’t be struggling to find a space for your materials and your work. Your passion deserves its own space.

When people create art studios in their homes, they’re often an afterthought. They’re stuck in a room that’s designed for something else or often simultaneously used for other purposes. But unfortunately, this comes with a lot of constraints and distractions.

You shouldn’t have to put away your project so that you use the dining room table. You shouldn’t have to interrupt your creative process so that you can welcome guests into your guest room. You shouldn’t have to worry about interruptions from the rest of the people who live in your home.

A backyard studio eliminates all of these classic challenges to creating art. It gives you a dedicated space where you can purposefully and intentionally create your unique art. You can just walk to the art shed, roll up your sleeves, and dive into your latest project at any time.

Types of art to explore in a backyard studio

There are no limits to what you can do in a backyard art studio. You can explore the visual arts in a private, well-lit space. You can create a dark area for developing film. You can hole up for days to write your next screenplay. You can dip in and out when life gives you spare moments for poetry. Or, you can turn up the music and dance.

You can explore any type of art in a backyard studio, and people of all skill levels can benefit from these spaces. Whether you’ve been painting professionally for decades or have just bought your first banjo, a backyard studio gives you a space to explore and refine your craft.

An art studio shed can provide you with a tidy workspace for sewing, scrapbooking, or other crafts. It can contain dust and smoke from wood or metalwork. Regardless of the type of art you want to create, a backyard art studio gives you the space, freedom, and flexibility to explore on your own terms, in your own space, just steps from your home.

Designing a backyard studio

Studio sheds offer modern, inviting designs. Most art studio sheds start with a few basic design options, and then, you customize the windows, doors, flooring, ceilings, and other features to create a space that is uniquely yours.

Select clean integrated windows and french doors to enhance your new space with sunlight, and choose an exterior that complements your existing home. Then, finish the interior with open rafters and modern materials, or cultivate a cozy space with rustic barn wood or other custom finishes.

Many backyard studios also come with decks. A deck gives you space to wander outside as you think about your project or reflect on new ideas. Customizations ensure that you’re just as passionate about your art studio shed as you are about your art.

Backyard art shed vs. home addition

When people decide to create a dedicated space for creating art, they can choose between a backyard art shed or a home addition. In almost every situation, an art studio shed is easier and more affordable than a home addition.

A home addition comes with a lot of engineering challenges, and it’s a time-consuming process. You have to tie the foundations together, address heating and cooling challenges, and ensure you don’t disrupt the integrity of your home’s existing structure. You also have to deal with a messy remodel.

In contrast, when you opt for a detached backyard studio, you bypass these issues. In most cases, installing an art shed in your backyard is much less expensive per square foot, and it is a much faster process.

Considerations when creating a backyard studio

Often, you can install an art shed without building permits, but it depends on the size and style of the shed. For instance, sheds with kitchens or bathrooms often require you to obtain a building permit. You may need to get approval from your home owner’s association (HOA) before setting up a backyard studio, and you need to ensure that you meet the setback rules for your municipality.

When you work with Perry Brothers Construction, we take care of all of those aspects of the project for you. We don’t just build art studio sheds. Instead, we guide your entire project along.

The flexibility of art sheds

An art shed is a flexible structure. Your art studio shed may start as a place to express yourself, but then, it can evolve into a home office, a space for guests, or your own private retreat. When you opt for a studio shed, you get a flexible space that can change as your needs change.
