She Shed Ideas: Building Your Dream Space

Date Published: November 18th, 2020

Dedicated to hobbies, film nights or even self-care weekends, the she shed is the latest innovation when it comes to our outdoor spaces. Filled with pleasing decor, workstations or other items suited to the owner, the she shed is the counterpart of the man-cave, and is a space dedicated to all things women like to do in their spare time. Any shed can become a she shed, so you don’t need to break the bank. Whether you’re sprucing up a potting shed or installing a brand new one to call your own, below are our brilliant she shed ideas.

Sewing Shed

Love knitting or sewing your days away? Perhaps you sell knitted items of clothing? Creating a she shed with this in mind is a great way to cultivate your free space and manage your business from your back garden. Install a sewing machine, wall hangings for threads and wool and you’re good to go! For a cottage core vibe, why not choose a shed that matches your aesthetic? Our Rose Cottage Garden Shed isn’t just for kids.

Afternoon Tea Shed

Fan of afternoon tea? Creating a shed that reflects this is a great way to make use of your outdoor space. In summer, you can place a patio set outside for added comfort, and you can paint the interior of your shed in pastel colours to match your theme!

Reading Corner

If you’re an avid reader, creating a book corner in your shed is the ideal way to free up shelf space in your home. Add fairy lights and a comfy reading chair to really make the most of the space. If your shed is older, make sure to check for rot in your wood, as this can make your books damp or potentially ruin them down the line.

Stylish Summerhouse

If you spend your summer sunbathing, why not turn your shed into a summer retreat? Add a bar for summer cocktails, or even a sofa for when you want to sit back and relax with a good book in the shade. Think bright colours and welcome signs. For this option, take a look at our Garden Room Apex Shed, complete with windows that let the light flood in.

The Yoga Retreat

Ideal if you’re looking for some peace and quiet, turning your shed into a yoga retreat is one of the most popular she shed ideas at the moment. The beauty of this idea is also that it’s simple. You won’t need to add much apart from comfortable flooring, your mat, and a space to add your accessories alongside a heater for those hot yoga sessions.
