He Shed She Shed


Dear lawn mower – it’s time to move out. Of course it’s practical to store your outdoor accessories in your shed, but where’s the fun in that? The she/he shed trend has been taking off for a reason – it’s fun, nostalgic, and just slightly irresponsible (in the best kind of way). So whether you are building one from the ground up or converting the one that currently stands in your backyard, here are a few possibilities of what this micro retreat COULD be…

The Literary Respite || Calling all bibliophiles, this one is for you! Create your own personal reading room to escape to when you need some alone time. Line the walls from floor to ceiling with built-in shelves to hold all your favorite books. Cozy it up by adding an area rug and an ultra-comfy oversized chair to curl up in when indulging in the latest bestseller. Finish off the look with proper lighting. If you have electricity available to you, consider a floor lamp. If not, line the floor and ceiling with battery-operated string lights and some candles so you can still read out there at night!

The Pub Shed || Go out for a drink without ever needing a designated driver – transform your shed into an outdoor bar! Home bars come in many different lengths, provide ample storage, and can double as your drink prep space as some have built-in dry sinks too. Pair the bar with a few bar stools and you’re ready to serve your friends and family the most creative cocktails in the neighborhood. Don’t forget to install shelving to display your best selection!

The Zen Sanctuary || Even if you aren’t a die-hard yogi, wouldn’t it be nice to have a tranquil spot to simply collect your thoughts or meditate? Find your serenity by painting your shed in soothing azure tones and laying down a plush rug scattered with floor pillows. Depending on the size of your space you could even add a daybed!

The Hotel Room || Equipped with a super comfy bed dominated by plush pillows, a mini fridge filled with snacks, and a fluffy robe this tiny refuge could be better than a 5-star hotel. It’s only a matter of time before you’ll have to start taking reservations in advance – all your friends will want to stay!

The Hobby Haven || Turn this space into your activity room. For the art lovers, this is your blank canvas. Keep your curated collection here like a gallery or create it on the walls of the shed like a mural. Are you a writer? Make this your chic office of inspiration. Just like hobbies, the ways you could transform this tiny space are truly endless.
