How Millennials are re-imagining the shed for the 21st century

Britain’s 18-24 year olds are five times more likely to use their sheds for recreational activities than their parents and grandparents, according to new research from garden building specialist Waltons. The survey also revealed that Britain’s 18-24 year olds are nine times more likely to use their shed as a summerhouse than their parents, (those aged 45-54) who were more likely to use their garden building for its primary purpose.

The study also shows that Britain’s over-55s are investing the least amount of money into their sheds (£306), compared with young adults, aged 18-24, who spend on average £420.

“Its clear to see that young people are becoming more aspirational when it comes to their homes and gardens. You could say they’re enjoying the finer things in life a lot earlier on,” said Waltons spokesperson Aaron Ketland. --------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. With more and young adults staying longer in the family home it comes as no surprise to find they are looking at more creative ways to find privacy and where better than a retreat located in the garden. All the comforts of home without the bills and responsibility but with a little privacy.
