When it comes to She Shed ideas, there is no shortage. In a world where gender specific lines are becoming blurrier, the She Shed is the natural progression after the Man Cave. The space doesn’t have to be limited to sports or hunting. And it’s possible to set up a “She Shed” type space, just about anywhere. The Carpet Guys have brought together some suggestions for how to make this one-of-a-kind space all your own.
Figure Out Where the She Shed Space Will Be
There are lots of ideas to create a space all your own. Don’t feel limited to an outdoor structure. Though, it is nice to have a space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Ideally, it would be a small shed in the backyard. But, like a Man Cave, it can be in a basement, garage, small extra bedroom, or even a large walk-in closet like a friend of mine. If the space needs to be waterproofed, we recommend using Basement Waterproofing of Michigan. They will make sure the space is dry and healthy for long term use.
You will also want to decide what the space will be used for, so you can figure out your needs within the space. If you want it as an open Yoga space, you will want hard surface flooring and a small storage space for mats, balance blocks and maybe some small hand weights. Maybe you are an avid gardener and want to have a space to pot plants. You would want sheet vinyl flooring (easy to clean) and a water source. At this point, you will want to hire the necessary contractors for getting plumbing, electrical, etc.
Work Within a Budget to Acquire the Best She Shed Ideas
Now that you have your space outfit for your needs, you can begin bringing in necessary furniture and décor. We recommend accepting that your space will take time to complete. When given time, there’s no rush to buy the first cabinet or easel you find! Garage sales, resale shops and even places online like Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist can help. There are lots of inexpensive options out there if you’re willing to take the time to look.
Be Willing to Think Outside of the Box
If you are a gardener looking for a work surface, there are plenty of out of the box ideas to use for She Sheds. An old wooden work bench, an antique bathroom sink and cabinet or even an old desk or dish hutch would work. If your space is small, you can use wooden pallets hung on a wall that fold up when not in use. It’s important to let creativity shine. When I wanted a small vanity to put my make up on, I bought 2 inexpensive plant stands that look like columns and found an oval mirror to put on top. It makes for great reflective lighting and it’s easy to keep clean. With the invention of Pinterest, there is no shortage of ways to outfit small spaces or accomplish your needs.
