Move over, “man caves”—we’ve got “she sheds.” If men can have a snazzy place to unwind, then so can women. While the concept of a she shed isn’t totally new (there are a surprising number of books out there dedicated to shed decor), it seems everywhere we turn we’re reading about them. Given how lovely and relaxing they look, it’s easy to see why.
You can create a “she shed” out of an old gardening shed or cottage that’s already on your property, or build a new one. The most amazing thing about a she shed is that it’s supposed to help foster the “me time” that is often hard for women to find.
Women are using she sheds for all different activities, from gardening to yoga to painting to simply relaxing and reading a good book. The best part about a she shed is that you can customize it to fit your needs and desires.
Keep reading to check out some of the sweet she sheds that are already out there and how they’re being used. You may even get inspired to make your own!
