Step aside Man Cave, you now have the She Shed, because women also deserve to have an area where they can decompress, unwind, and just have fun being themselves. When it comes to she sheds, it’s similar to a man cave in the fact that you can essentially convert a shed into this relaxing little area. Sure, you might need sturdy shed bases and insulation, but other than that, the decoration aspect is actually pretty easy. So, here’s how you can create the ultimate she shed!
Start By Deciding on it’s Purpose
While, of course, this is meant to step up your garden and to make it look unique, and it’s a space meant to unwind, there should still be more of a reason than this to go for it. What do you want to do in the she shed? What do you want to achieve when you go out into the she shed? If you’re going to go out of your way, then it’s best to make sure that this is going to be a space that’s going to be used. For example, if you plan to use your she shed as a craft room, you'll need to incorporate plenty of storage space and comfortable furniture to facilitate your activities. On the other hand, if you want to make it a relaxing retreat, consider soft lighting and soothing decor.
Get to Decorating!
Not only should this speak to your hobbies, but this whole shed needs to just speak to you. Like a man cave, this is a space where men are surrounded by decor that makes them comfortable, and it’s the same for a shed. A she shed should be a space that speaks to you and your hobbies, so don’t be afraid to bring in decor pieces that reflect you.
Look to thrift stores and flea markets for bargains, but only buy items that can handle the weather outside. If they’re looking a little rough, a fresh coat of paint or a fabric cover can turn them into a new she shed accent piece. Often, women will decorate in farmhouse or shabby chic, so honestly, whatever aesthetics you like, go for it.
Just make sure you understand that all furniture pieces and decorations you choose, they all need to be able to handle the weather, and they need to be able to not be able to mold either. So if you opt for a lot of plastic, galvanized, and rubber decor (and maybe some wood), this will be your best bet of not having anything destroyed. Sheds don’t have insulation, so unless you add it, there’s a chance that the interior just can’t handle the elements.
Remember, Make it Your Own
This is your she shed, not just any regular shed for putting garden furniture in. It’s the number one place for you to feel connected outside while still getting to decompress. You should own this room and set boundaries that this is your space, not just any normal garden shed. Decorate the outside, too; this definitely helps “prove” this. You can add a wreath to the door, a cute sign with your name on it, paint it pink, and so on. Just have fun with it, and be proud that you own your very own she shed!
