She shacks are a new trend that are becoming wildly popular. This terminology means turning a storage shed into a space in the yard just for the lady of the house. These rooms can become a getaway for any woman to unwind and a place to use as a creative workspace. Men have their man caves, why can’t women have a “she shack”? Create your own getaway that is separate from the rest of your house, where you can get some quiet time to think, read, paint or anything else you can dream up. Find out more about “she shacks” and get ideas to make your own!
These little spaces can be custom built or made by transforming a storage/garden shed into a little one room space. Because of their small nature it does not cost a lot to make one of these for yourself. Add some drywall and run electricity to the shack for a relaxing space to make your own. With a little TLC these small spaces can be transformed into a sanctuary. Make sure to pay particular attention to the floor used in this space. High quality floor materials such as tile or natural stone will transform your space into a unique getaway.
Most store bought sheds have adorable little windows that you can make quaint little window treatments for. Throw a rug down on the floor and add a comfortable, upholstered lounge chair with ottoman. Green houses make for a great painting space. They offer plenty of natural light during the day. Add some string lights to transform the space into a night time oasis, where you can sit and have a glass of wine.
These spaces make a great reading room, where you can actually read a book without getting interrupted by children or husbands.
Add an easel to the corner and install shelving to house paint supplies. The store bought sheds can be purchased in an array of sizes. Choose a space that can offer 40 to 60 or even 100 square feet to call your own. Tiny houses are typically round 200 square feet. There really is no limit to what you can create in your “She Shack”. The sky is the limit!
