6. Spruce up the exterior

The difference between a plain old garden shed and a charming she shed are the extra touches. Flower boxes, wind chimes, and a door painted a cheerful color with a wreath can add to your she shed’s charm and character.

For an inviting aroma as you approach your she shed, plant fragrant outdoor flowers. Lilies or lilac bushes are great choices. If you don’t yet have a shed, consider selecting a shed with a porch. A porch is the perfect place to stop and smell the flowers.

7. Plug it in

If you’re using your she shed as a home office or theater, electricity is a must. Even if you deem yourself handy, you may want to consider leaving electrical installation to the professionals. Any size voltage can be dangerous and it’s not worth putting yourself or your family at risk.

Another point to note is that your town or city may have restrictions. Reach out to your local building official to find out if you’ll need a permit.

A big plus of having your she shed positioned close to home: WiFi. Depending on where your shed is located, you may still be able to connect to your home’s internet and save on data.

8. Keep it simple

Don’t stress about creating the perfect she shed. You’re designing a she shed, not an elaborate she palace. The space you’re working with is relatively small. This limits the amount of stuff you can bring inside and keeps your she shed how it should be: an inviting, quaint, little space just for you.


Step aside man caves. It’s time to make way for the she shed movement!
