Jumpstart Your Day: Introducing the She Shed

The counterpart of man caves are chic and cozy spaces


Man caves are special areas at home meant for the hobbies of the man of the house. This is also a common sight in bachelor pads. To create man caves, the owners transform a room into a game nook while others prefer to turn the den into an entertainment or media room.

Recently, we discovered a new term: she sheds. She sheds are cozy nooks where women can do their crafts, entertainment friends, and simply relax and unwind. If you're thinking of converting a part of the house into a she shed, here are spaces that will surely inspire you.

For reading books and afternoon tea

Take a break from work and other household chores by spending some quality time in a tiny shed built within your property. You can add a sofa, chic curtains, and a couple of comfy pillows. If the heat is tolerable, you can also add a small table and a chair outside—where you can enjoy a drink or two.
