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.”

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 the one I’d buy. It comes in six different sizes, making it work for almost every yard size.
Find this exact gingerbread cottage on Amazon; if you don’t want it to be so “girly,” you could choose to remove the scalloped trim & replace it with something more simple.
My favorite thing about the shed above is the cozy day-bed ~ this gorgeous farmhouse day-bed is sooo inviting & works for home or She Shed.
Replicate this rustic wood shed with a near-exact match on Amazon ~ you can choose to modify it by adding more windows or beautiful French doors.

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.
