5 Tips to Make the Most of a She Shed


She sheds have been on my mind lately. Maybe it’s because I just bought a new house, or maybe it’s because the warm summer weather has made me crave beautiful outdoor spaces. Either way, she sheds are having a moment right now—and for good reason. Not only are they a perfect place to get away from the stress of everyday life, but they’re also incredibly versatile and customizable spaces. The possibilities are truly limitless! So what exactly is a “she shed,” anyway? It’s basically an outdoor space that you can decorate however you want: as a guest room, as an art studio, as an office space…or even just as a place to store all your gardening tools! That said, here are some tips for making yours into something really special:

Give it a purpose

Whether it’s a den, a sunroom, or a man cave—there are many ways to use your outdoor space.

Don’t just think of it as a place to store lawn equipment. A shed can be used as an extension of your home, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors when the weather is nice or even if it isn’t! If you live in an area with harsh winters and long cold periods then this may be the perfect solution for keeping yourself entertained without having to worry about getting out into bad weather conditions. There are numerous ways in which we can make use of our she sheds so let’s take a look at some options that will help us get started using them effectively:

Find a place for it

  • Find a place for it that is easy to get to.
  • Find a place for it that is easy to maintain.
  • Find a place for it that is easy to keep clean.
  • Find a place for it that is easy to keep organized.

Make it comfy

  • Make it comfy. If your she shed is going to be your go-to spot, make sure it’s comfortable. You’ll want a place to sit down and put your feet up after a long day of working in the garden or doing yard work. Your she shed should also give you plenty of places to store items so they’re accessible and easy to find when needed, like baskets, hooks and shelves.
  • There are lots of ways you can make the most out of your outdoor room! Try adding some colorful flowers or plants as decorations around the room, which will brighten up any space and give it a cozy feel as well as help with air circulation outside in warmer months. You could also add some nice seating cushions for extra comfort when spending time there—these can even double as storage space if need be! I would recommend avoiding wood furniture unless treated with special chemicals because rain water will eventually cause wood rot issues overtime.”

Use it year-round.

The she shed can be used all year round, beyond its intended purpose.

Use it for storage! Perhaps you have so many outdoor toys that you need a place to store them all. Or maybe you want to keep your patio furniture out of the elements so it doesn’t rust and become unusable. Whatever your reason is, keeping items in an area that’s not subject to extreme weather conditions will prolong their lifespan by years!

A workshop is another great use for your new she shed. You could build woodworking projects in there or even set up a sewing machine with plenty of space around it for when inspiration strikes!

Use it as a playroom! If you think about how much time children spend outside (especially during summertime), having some indoor fun too would be ideal! The best part: kids don’t need fancy gadgets and games; they just want something simple like bookshelves filled with children’s books…or even cardboard boxes full of other toys they’ve outgrown but still love enough not throw away yet (like cars). Kids also love having their own space where they can get away from mommy & daddy sometimes; this makes them feel grown-up while still being close enough should someone need them right away if there were an emergency situation occurring inside the house nearby where everyone else was located instead..

Decorate it in style.

Once the space has been established, it’s time to decorate the She Shed in style. The first step is to use your imagination and think about what you can use the space for. Do you want to read a book or do some light gardening? Maybe you want to practice yoga or meditate? The options are endless! You can also consider using the space to complement your home or make it feel more comfortable for yourself. For example, if you have a modern aesthetic in your main living area but prefer traditional style for this retreat, then consider incorporating both styles into one room so that both sides of yourself are represented well!

Finally, remember that this is YOUR shed—your own little corner of escape from reality. When designing its aesthetic, don’t forget about how it makes YOU feel! Designing this space with all these ideas in mind will help create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and happiness… which is ultimately what we all need most out here on earth 🙂

Sheds can be fun and happy places if you decorate them well.
