Comments (0) Interiors


While there has been plenty of focus on how to create a “man cave” in your home, women have often been left out of the mix. Well, it seems as though times are changing, and with that, the introduction of the “she-shed” has occurred. A she-shed offers all the benefits of a man cave, giving women a place to retreat to and relax, and it can be just as fun and inspiring to design.

Here, we’ll take a look at how you can take a small backyard log cabin and turn it into the luxurious she-shed of your dreams, with very little time and effort on your part. What this means is that you’ll be able to enjoy your sanctuary that much sooner.

Make Sure the Log Cabin Offers Enough Space

The first thing you want to do is be sure the log cabin you purchase offers enough interior space for your she-shed plans. Take for, example, the Trentan log cabins available through 1st Choice Leisure Buildings. On this website, you can choose from a huge selection of sizes and designs, with some log cabins being a small one-room structure and others offering multiple rooms and much more space. What’s great about these log cabins is that they have plenty of windows to allow natural light to pour in, which will make it feel much more inviting and comfortable.

Besides considering how much room you need for your design plans, you’ll also need to take into account the amount of available space you have on your property.

Figure Out the Main Purpose of Your She-Shed

Next, you will want to decide on the main purpose for your shed, as this will determine how you decorate it. Will it be used for sitting and relaxing, perhaps entertaining friends? Maybe it will be used as a place to work on a hobby like painting, beading, sewing, etc. Once you determine the purpose then you can start to create a floorplan and get an idea of the furniture pieces you will need.

Give It a Unique Look with Antique and Vintage Pieces

If you want to create a design that is really unique and personal to you, it’s a good idea to check out local antique and thrift shops. You’ll be amazed at what you can find, and just how beautiful you can make the space.

Add Greenery Inside the She-Shed

Another tip is to add greenery to your she-shed. This gives a sense of the outdoors and helps to create a fresh and welcoming vibe. Potted plants and flowers are a great way to go; just be sure to place them near a window, so they get enough natural light.

Use Cosy Décor Touches

Lastly, you want to add cosy décor touches such as soft plush throw blankets and pillows, scented candles, soft lighting in the form of a table or floor lamps, and artwork on the walls.

Each of these tips will help you take that small backyard log cabin and transform it into the she-shed you deserve.
