Put up walls? Insulate, wire with outlets over 4’ up, lots of lights, everything on wheels and at the same height.

+1 id cover the walls with plywood or osb makes hanging or attaching things much easier and paint white to make it bright.

I would ask what you intend to use the shop for. That could determine what you do with the interior. If its for yard tools…well nothing…if its for a wood shop then a lot of stuff.

I put up a 12×16 and put a 2 foot wide shelf all the way around the interior at 3 feet high and another at 6 feet high using surplus 2×4s and plywood. It massively increases how much junk I can store in there. The 3’ high shelf is about bench height and you can still wheel heavy stuff under it. Put hooks in the rafters to hang stuff from. All depends on how tall your shed is I guess.

Answers could go a hundred directions. What’s the shed’s purpose? I have a couple / three sheds that have been around over a century. Only one has painted inside finishes, the other two open framing. Do I care? Nope. There’s a car in one and misc. storage in the other.

I gave up ass/u/me a long time ago, nothing here to really say much.

+1 except with goats because then I can use the shed as a yoga studio with goats…I hear that’s a popular thing now. Sorry Steven…I will see myself out now.

About the middle of Dec, we are expecting delivery of a portable workshop building. We are planning to insulate, put up a vapor barrier and most likely drywall. I have been going back and forth about using some type of wood sheet goods on the walls.
I am planning to surface mount the all the electrics.
Lots to figure out still. Heat, light fixtures, paint, and all that.

My 10’x16’ shed started as storage for yard tools and overflow from the house. Now it is a shop and boy is she pissed! Right now I have finished adding power and working on insulation/ wall storage with french cleats. A heater is on it way. After that it will either be adding carts for tools and/or base cabinets with storage. Once all this is done I plan on building a smaller shed for storing all the yard tools and maybe sneak in some lumber storage too.

By that time I will probably be onto building a bigger shop or expanding what I have. To the OP like said above it depends on the use. Storage, lots of shelves and hangers. Shop, lots of outlets and a way to make a tight space work the best you can.

OSB is about the lowest cost “sturdy” sheet goods I know, and you can paint it white for a clean look, and it is ok for attaching items to the wall over it. It’s what I put up on my shops wall behind my wood rack. I needed to insulate back there, and all of that build was way in front of the drywall work. It’s held up better than the drywall. You almost have to squint to see the OSB inside, versus the OSB outside used as wall sheathing under the siding. In the after pic it’s clearer compared to the drywall.

Looking at that pic I’m just thinking I never got back to paint that OSB. I had wood I needed to move right away. Huh…

Drywall, once finished is about 4 times the cost of painted OSB.
