She Shed Ideas

Create your own backyard crafting oasis

If you're keeping up with the latest trends, you've probably seen plenty of She Shed ideas on Pinterest. This typically "ladies only" getaway rivals the well known Man Cave in functionality and style. When it comes to how to make a She Shed, the options are endless and range from a cozy book lovers nook to an organized personal office. Below we have listed the top uses for this private and relaxing sanctuary. 

Ladies Lounge

Ditch the bar and save money on over-priced drinks by having a girl’s night in, safely located in your very own cocktail lounge. You can use your She Shed to create an at home bar with all the amenities and personal touches you desire. Go for a shabby chic look by using distressed wood textures, or keep it modern with sleek metal fixtures. When it comes to She Shed colors, warmer tones and dim lighting will create the perfect cozy atmosphere when having friends over for drinks and to swap stories. Paint the outside in modern millenial pinks such as Blushing Bride or Fresco for a truly welcoming, yet chic, appearance.


Mini Meditation Mansion

Imagine only having to go as far as your own backyard to achieve a relaxing, zen hide away. More and more people are giving meditation and yoga a try - so give yourself some space for it. One of the top She Shed ideas is that of a personal yoga or meditation studio. Having a quiet space all to yourself will promote deep focusing and is ideal for those who dislike large crowded classes. Homeowners can create a bright and clean atmosphere by staining the exterior in deeply relaxing solid wood stain colours such as Amsterdam or Aqua Smoke.


Crafty Cabin

Getting crafty and creative often leads to a mess. A great way to keep that mess out of the house is to use your She Shed as an arts and crafts studio. The space can be utilized to provide optimal organization and plenty of storage. Let soft natural light in by including large windows or a sky light in the shed’s design. Coat the exterior with a deep exotic red paint colour like Burning Bush or Autumn Ridge for a truly inspiring getaway in your own backyard.


Botanical Bungalow

When browsing she shed ideas, one of the most popular options is that of a green house garden retreat. For those with an especially good green thumb, this space will be perfect for perusing a gardening hobby. It will provide storage for all your tools and has the option of climate control year round. To make sure your gardening retreat blends in with your backyard choose a beautiful botanical green paint colour for the exterior such as Antique Green or Grassy Meadow.


With endless ideas on Pinterest, it has become easy and accessible to envision how to make a She Shed of your own. While She Sheds are inherently targeted towards female homeowners, with a few personal touches and a nice coat of wood stain or exterior paint, a regular shed can be transformed into a gorgeous and functional room for anyone's needs.
