Brits Spend a Year of Their Lives in Their Shed

A new study by Cuprinol has revealed what a big part of Brits lives their sheds are.

New figures suggest that an estimated 14 million of us now own a garden shed, and us Brits love our sheds so much that the average shed-dweller spends almost a year of their life in their garden retreat! In fact the research revealed that many of us are actually spending more time in them than we may be letting on…

According to the research by Cuprinol, one in five of respondents admitted to retreating to their sheds in order to avoid their other half, while 8% even went as far as to say they would rather spend time in their sheds than be intimate with their partner.

Modern sheds are now becoming an extension of the family home with 35% of them now wired up with electric power. Luxury features include heating (11%) lighting (40%) televisions (7%) and sofas (5%) making our garden shed that much more appealing.

Kathryn Ledson, Marketing Manager for Cuprinol said: “It’s clear the nation are fanatical about sheds and view it as an important extension of the home, with many using it as a secret getaway to store secrets or avoid loved ones.”

If you are a die hard ‘sheddie’ and are looking to make your space even more appealing then why not consider using artificial grass to create a unique appearance of the great outdoors in your shed.

You could consider some of the following options:

  • Roof – we think the ultimate garden shed should be covered in artificial grass! Add fake turf to the roof of your shed to blend in with the surrounding garden.
  • Carpet – Artificial grass is the perfect floor covering for your shed. Not only is it bang on trend, artificial grass is easy to remove and wash & holds great appeal!
  • Mat – Don’t have the budget or time to install a full carpet? Why not add some colour to your shed by adding a practical and inexpensive artificial grass doormat?
  • Chair Covers – You could even use artificial grass to transform old garden chairs that are looking past their best. Grassy chair covers provide a durable surface that gives a unique twist to your garden hideout!
