To maximize durability in your shed, Sherrod recommends the following: "make sure to keep climate in mind when picking out interior decor—especially humidity. While picking out your furniture and pillows make sure to look for items that are made with durable and strong materials," she says. "I recommend incorporating outdoor furniture because it's durable and can withstand any climate. Also be sure to have adequate windows or vents for air flow—this will keep you cool and comfortable."
I'm sentimental about family heirlooms and can't bring myself to get rid of long-treasured items, even when they are not exactly my taste. The ornate pink chair and settee in our bedroom were my great grandmother's and while they don't necessarily jibe with my other decor, their vivid color and quirkiness still make them perfect for a little sitting area.
Sherrod recommends doing everything you can to bring as much light as possible into your shed. "I recommend adding windows or dormers and perhaps leave ceiling beams exposed to create the illusion of a taller ceiling height," says Sherrod.
