Here are a number of the most popular sizes and their metric equivalents -

Why do you want a garden shed?
- Is it for storage, hobbies or a workshop?
- How much space do you need?
- How much space do you have in your garden?
Depending on your answer, the above will decide the size of the shed you will buy.
For general storage, bicycles and lawnmowers, WONKEE DONKEE recommends 6' x 4', 7' x 5', 8' x 6'
For hobbies such as painting or using as a workshop for woodworking, WONKEE DONKEE recommends 10' x 8', 12' x 10', 14' x 8'
Or the easiest way to determine the shed's size is to organise all the items you are planning to put in the shed on a flat surface. Arrange them so you can move around between and measure the area they occupy.
