It seems that these days she sheds are turning out to be quite popular. For those who still haven’t heard about them we should mention that they represent a perfect little corner in one’s backyard where women can do all sorts of different relaxing and fun activities, like reading, watching chick flicks with their girlfriends, meditating, napping, crafting, and so much more. She sheds or female caves are great if you want to take a break from everyday tasks and obligations and do something enjoyable that makes you feel good a little bit. If you don’t have your own yet, you should definitely consider creating it and here are some tips on how to make it look and feel perfect! You will read about some decoration ideas and possibilities you have to make it a fun place not just for you, but for your friends as well.
First you’ll need a cosy bed or sofa…
Once you’ve decided to make your own shed as a quiet place where you’ll be able to relax completely, the first thing you need to take care of is to find a perfect bed or sofa, where you will nap and lounge while watching something good on TV, or maybe reading a captivating book. Choose a nice-looking one that matches the colour of the walls and patterns if you want to have a cute shed, but what’s even more important is that you find it comfy and cosy.
For a stylish look, you can decorate it with a bunch of pillows, because that can be adorable and it is very comfortable too. This year animal and floral prints are very popular, so you can either choose one of them or even go for both and show how audacious you can get. Every pillow can be of different colour or print, because it’s very trendy in 2019 to mix a lot of colours. The most important thing is that you like it and that it gives you that soothing feeling, since you’ll probably spend a lot of time there.
… Then goes a cute shelf for your books!
If you like to read and that is one of your hobbies, you can make your shed adorable by adding the right bookshelf. Those who want only high-quality stuff can buy what’s made of pine, red oak or mahogany, since these are the best options for wood shelves. If you only plan to include several books, for example, the ones that are your favourite, you can dedicate a corner to a small shelf, since this has also been trendy recently. Check out some awesome bookshelf ideas to find inspiration and decide what would look the best in your shed. There are some artistic ways to display all your favourite items to always be able to look at the things that make you feel good. You can try floating shelves, cubed ones, or maybe something that will give your cave a rustic charm. You can even add a shelf with a curtain, or maybe faux hanging ones. There are so many options and lots of things can look incredible!
Lightning is an important part of it
Your shed should be filled with natural light, so if you can install a wall-length window or just a big one, that would be great. You can add curtains with cute details, for example, butterflies, because they are very popular in 2019. To also ensure the lightning is good during evenings and nights, especially if you like reading at that time after finishing your work and all your chores, you’ll need a quality ceiling light and lamp. If your shed is also a crafting area, you need good lighting to see what you’re doing perfectly. For a solution that is energy-efficient, LED lights are amazing. It’s a relatively new technology, but an increasing number of people are going for it and they are satisfied.
Decorate it with things that bring you joy
Surely you want to add the personal touch to your shed, and what better way to do so from surrounding yourself with everything that brings you happiness and peace? We’ve already covered the decorative pillows, so now we can speak about other details. If you like art, you can always put a picture or two on a wall, or maybe some cute-looking sculptures, even paintings and drawings of your kids. Putting photos of your family is a great idea, especially if you have some cool photos from trips and vacations, or if there are some important moments captured this way. You can even bring some scented candles and oil burners to make some magic. Imagine all that with some beautiful music you enjoy listening to –it sure sounds like paradise!
Don’t forget a TV for all those chick flicks
Lastly, if you want to spice things up, you can also get a big TV so that you can watch all the movies you love, alone or with friends. A she shed can also be your perfect girly mini movie theater where you will be able to enjoy chick flicks with your girls while choking on popcorns and drinking margaritas. You can organize a girls night in anytime you want by inviting your dearest girlfriends who have the same taste in movies as you do. Basically, it’s completely opposite from a man cave, where the most important items are a fridge full of beer bottles, a pool table and a video game console.
If you think of more interesting suggestions, you can always add anything you like. It’s your oasis and it should be perfect for you, so make it that way that you enjoy spending every minute in it. Stylish, rustic, industrial –anything is good if it works for you, so start getting things that you need and make your she shed as soon as possible. You can always find great ideas on the internet, which can be helpful if you can’t come up with some cool ideas of your own.
