With summer right around the corner, thousands of people across the UK will be looking to spend some time in their gardens, either to enjoy some much-needed sunshine or to take on exciting DIY projects...

To help you with some She Shed ideas, we’ve put together a useful blog to give you all the tips and inspiration you need.
What is a she shed?
The female equivalent of a man cave, She Sheds offer a place of solitude where women can escape to for some relaxation, peace and quiet.
If you are looking to get away from the stresses and strains of daily life, whether that be pestering and persistent children, work pressures or even your spouse, think of a She Shed as your ultimate place of refuge, located in your very own back garden.
So, if you’re looking for some She Shed inspo, keep on reading to find our top She Shed decorating ideas...
What should be in a She Shed?
When it comes to decorating your She Shed, you have complete free reign with what you wish to include – after all, it’s your own special place, and you’ll want to feel completely comfortable and relaxed!
To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of She Shed interior ideas, from the bar basics to extra fun additions:
A plush and comfortable chair, placed snugly in the corner of your She Shed and adorned with pillows and throws, would be the perfect first addition.
Personally, we feel a dusky pink velvet style chair would be absolutely ideal for a She Shed, bringing those gorgeous feminine vibes with added comfortability and style.
Spend a lazy afternoon lounging on your chair, cup of tea and a good book in hand, watching the summer clouds drift by.
On those cooler days, you can wrap yourself up in a nice blanket, enjoying the peace and shelter offered by your cosy private hideout.
Your She Shed is your sanctuary, your own personal space, and much like how you would decorate your bedroom, you should take every opportunity to express your style and really make your She Shed your own.
The best way to do this is with some interior décor, and a console table with shelves is the perfect addition, giving you plenty of room to display some personal items and favourite pieces.
From adorable ornaments to bring some chic style to your shed, to your favourite family photographs and memories, have fun decorating the interior of your She Shed.
She Shed or at home bar?
The idea of creating at home bars became incredibly popular with households across the UK, especially during lockdown, and turning your She Shed into a bar can combine the best of both!
A drinks trolley stacked full of your favourite summer tipples can really take your She Shed to the next level, and give you the perfect place to escape to as you sip on something cold and refreshing in the summer heat.
Complete your drinks trolley with some gorgeous barware, such as margarita glasses and cocktail shakes, and you’re all set for evenings of endless fun.
Small She Shed ideas
There’s no need to feel limited if you have a smaller space to work with – there are so many She Shed decorating ideas that can be ideal for smaller sheds. In fact, we think the idea of a little mini She Shed is so cosy and cute!
Since your space will be limited, you want to pick more compact items that can fit into your shed while still meeting your needs.
A little armchair tucked in the corner can give you the perfect little nook to snuggle up in – think cooler summer evenings after a long day socialising with friends, unwinding in your own little sanctuary in the dusky evening light. Bliss.
So, there you have it – She Sheds are the hottest trend taking over UK gardens this summer, and with so many ways to decorate them, you can start our very own DIY She Shed project and create the ultimate relaxation destination.
