She sheds can be anything from small spaces with just a chair and a table for reading and relaxing. To more sophisticated versions with a kitchen and toilet, for entertaining guests.

What is a She Shed Used For?

Generally, these spaces are used for rest and relaxation away from male company.

Also, women use these spaces as quiet places to work for example offices, craft rooms, or artists’ studios.

Generally, they have comfortable seating and feminine decorations. They can be customized in many different ways.

This is usually achieved by installing a small office desk and chair. If you are a writer just imagine the books you could write in this kind of sanctuary.

Also, they can be turned over to become artists’ studios or practical places for crafting or dressmaking.

For the more social they can include a bar for drinking cocktails or a small kitchen area where hot drinks can be made.

Some people like to keep a day bed in the shed as a place for rest and daytime naps.

For bigger sheds they can be turned into guest accommodation.

Perfect Shed for Enthusiastic Crafters

This wonderful space has been set up as the ultimate She Shed for crafters.

It contains everything a crafter needs to get on with her projects. I love the shelving and storage baskets. Crafters tend to have a lot of materials to store so this kind of system is perfect.

Doing craft projects can be very messy so a large table or desk as show below is perfect for working on.
