How to Design Your She Shed

She sheds are the ultimate escape for ladies who want a private space to relax outside of the house. If you’re longing for your own backyard oasis, keep reading for some tips on designing your very own she shed.

Start With a Shed

Naturally, the first thing you’ll need to do when it comes to designing your she shed is to start with a shed. If you have an existing shed in your backyard that’s been accumulating clutter over the years, now is the perfect time to clear it out, clean it, and get to work on converting it into the ultimate she shed.

If you don’t have a shed, consider buying a new one! Raber Storage Barns sells sheds of all sizes that can be turned into the she shed of your dreams. With many different models to choose from, you’ll be sure to find a shed that works for you and your budget.

Paint the Exterior

If you’re converting an existing shed into a she shed, giving the exterior a fresh coat of paint is a must! Make your shed stand out by choosing a bold color like red, green, or blue. Alternatively, paint your shed a color like white or brown to make it blend in more with the surroundings. No matter what color you choose, painting your she shed’s exterior can go a long way in making it look beautiful and classy.

Keep in mind that, if you decide to paint your she shed, it’s a good idea to use heavy duty, weatherproof paint. That way, your shed will be more protected from weather-related damage. 

Landscape Around the Shed

The inside of your she shed isn’t the only thing that matters; be sure to spruce up the outside too! Clear the area surrounding your shed of leaves and debris, and make sure any shrubbery or trees are neat and trimmed back. Consider planting some of your favorite flowers to make your she shed’s exterior even more inviting.

To really take the outside of your shed to the next level, add a fountain, a small pond, or even some stepping stones and decorative rocks. Your she shed will feel like your own private backyard oasis!

Define Your She Shed’s Purpose

Before you start designing your she shed, it’s important to define its purpose. Once you figure out what you’ll be using your she shed for, designing it will be much easier. If you haven’t yet decided the purpose of your new she shed, here are a few popular she shed ideas:

  • Hobby/crafting space
  • Potting shed
  • Reading room
  • Home office
  • Art studio

Whether you end up using your she shed as a place to indulge in your favorite hobby or simply a quaint spot to relax, what matters most is that the space is important to you.

Decorate!

Now it’s time for the fun part: decorating. Keep in mind, though, that decorating your she shed doesn’t have to break the bank! If you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on decorations and knick knacks, visit your local thrift store or flea market and hunt for some unique items to display in your space. You may be surprised by what you find!

There’s no right or wrong way to decorate a she shed. Your goal should simply be to create a cozy, relaxing area where you’ll want to spend some of your time. Your she shed should be a reflection of you, so design the space with your interests and personal taste in mind.
