Five She Shed Ideas That Inspire

A “she shed” is the female equivalent of a man cave. After all, we all deserve a little space to call our own. It is a small, dedicated space in your backyard where you can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of your home. There are endless possibilities for converting a regular storage shed into the she shed of your dreams–and we’re discussing our five favorite ideas to get you started.

1. A She Shed Reading Nook

A popular design choice is a classic reading nook. Imagine a comfortable chair, plush rug, pillows, blankets and natural light. Top it off by adding decor that makes you smile to create the stress-free environment you crave. Nothing is better than curling up with a good book, a cup of tea or coffee and losing yourself in a story for hours, especially uninterrupted.

2. A Creativity Center

As you get older, it is harder and harder to dedicate time (and space) to hobbies. If you’re a creative at heart, turn your she shed into a center for creativity where you can write, draw, paint, sew, quilt, knit or even create pottery. Allow yourself to unplug and find your flow with projects and supplies you’ve stored in your house for too long.

3. A Home Gym

It’s hard to squeeze trips into your busy schedule. Then, when you’ve got 20 minutes to do a yoga class in your bedroom, you can’t get past the five-minute mark because a kid is jumping on you or your partner needs something. A she shed is the perfect home gym and quiet place to nurture your physical health. Add a bike, treadmill, and free weights for sweat sessions or yoga mats and blankets for stretching and meditation.

4. A Gathering Space For Friends

Your backyard can also be a great gathering space for entertaining others. Whether hosting a book club, dinner party or just having a few friends over for coffee or dinner, having a private area for uninterrupted quality time with friends is invaluable. Furnish your shed with enough seating, add a mini coffee bar, and you’ll be ready to bring your community together!

5. A Potting Shed

If gardening is one of your love languages, turn your shed into a potting shed! Set up a cozy and functional space to organize garden tools, repot plants and plan your yard work. Add a small table and chair and enjoy outdoor coffee breaks.
