What will you use yours for?
Most people have heard of the term ‘Man Cave’ however more and more women are now designing and building their own little sanctuaries in the garden. From hobby room to chill out space, these garden ‘retreats’ or ‘she sheds’ are giving the Man cave a run for their money.
If you already have a shed that’s no longer used or is a bit neglected, then this could be the ideal project to tackle to create a cosy little she shed either for yourself or to share with family and friends. On the other hand, why not invest in a new one you can put your stamp on right from the start? The point of a she shed is to have a quiet space that allows you to maybe embrace a hobby that’s important to you or a relaxing cosy space for reflection or reading so getting the building and the space right for your needs is an important factor.
See how much room you have for a garden building before you make your choice. If you are going to opt for a shed, a wooden one is a good choice as it can be personalised with paint or stain to both the exterior and interior. If you are looking for something that really feels like a secret haven, a Summer House could provide the solution.
If space doesn’t give you any restrictions, a log cabin or garden room might be the perfect option for she sheds. These are ideal for sharing precious time with family and friends. View our Log Cabins Here
Decorating your she shed doesn’t have to be about spending lots of money—it’s about creating a space that feels relaxed and cosy. If you want a natural retreat to go to, think about what colour you will get to paint both the exterior and interior of your shed. Bright colours can be fun and add interest while softer muted tones can aid relaxation. You may want to make it a practical space for crafts or hobbies, so desks and workspaces need to be planned to make the best use of the space available. Alternatively, you may simply want an armchair and a good book. A she shed is often a space to escape to and relax in, and this is your chance to turn it into exactly what you want it to be.
