26 Amazing “She Shed” Design Ideas!
Man caves are soooo 2010….now is the time of the “She Shed!” Whereas man caves are characterized as being rather dark, hidden escapes ~ She Sheds are entirely the opposite: you’ll typically find them out in the garden, surrounded by flowers, with bright, airy interiors & often a very soft, feminine vibe. They’re a great place to read, take a nap, or as Virginia Woolf opined: to simply have a room of one’s own. As I’m thinking about creating a “She Shed” of my own, I’ve been slowly collecting ideas & inspiration, which I’ve had a lot of fun turning into this post: “26 Amazing She Shed Design Ideas.”
Welcome to your very own cozy “She Shed,” complete with beautiful blue hydrangeas! Photo courtesy of Southern Living.

A Tour of Some Spectacular She Sheds…
Let’s take a look at fantastic She Sheds of all varieties: from highly feminine, Shabby Chic abodes, to more simple wood structures, to stained-glass delights, or a wild, rustic retreat. The beauty of a She Shed is you can match it to virtually any style, be it modern, farmhouse, or vintage. And you can also choose to put up a beautiful, all-glass greenhouse instead, potentially adding a day-bed in amongst your collection of flowers. How fun to mix two different genres together….plants & leisure : )
If I were going to build a She Shed, this beautiful, all-white one with TONS of windows is what I’d buy. It comes in 6 sizes, making it work for almost every yard.
Find this exact gingerbread cottage on Amazon. If you don’t want it to be so “girly,” you can remove the scalloped trim & replace it with more simple trim.
My favorite thing about the shed above is the day-bed ~ this gorgeous farmhouse day-bed is sooo inviting & works for home or shed.
Replicate this rustic wood shed with a near-exact match on Amazon ~ you can modify it by adding more windows or beautiful French doors.
Simple outdoor string lights work in almost any backyard, & add a lovely, warm glow to evening events…
Create your own backyard greenhouse & have a safe place to store delicate plants in the winter…& possibly add a comfy chair for reading!
Fantastic She Shed Interiors…
Let’s not just look at the exteriors of She Sheds….you can’t forget about the inside! Decide how you want to use it: do you need extra office space & want to create a work space in the garden? How about an artist’s studio? Or an outdoor potting shed, complete with sink, potting area, & dining table ~ like you’ll find in Joanna Gaines’ amazing garden shed. Or perhaps you’d just like a place to read, nap, & day-dream ~ in which case you’ll want to pick a shed that’s large enough to hold either a couch, day-bed….or both.
