5 Inspiring Ideas For Your She-Cave
20th July 2020
Whenever we hear about garden sheds they are so often referred to as the man’s domain, hence the term man-cave but why can’t women also have their own little piece of sanctuary? After all, women also want to unwind after a hard day at work, they need time to switch off, everybody needs a place to escape to and a place for a hobby.
Let’s explore 5 inspiring ideas for your very own she-cave.
Reading inside the house can be full of distractions. Why not create a wonderful reading nook within your own garden instead? Look for items such as scatter cushions, a reclining chair, a rustic lamp, a large bookcase and just have some fun coming up with a room that you would look forward to escaping to. You could even make this a themed room based on your favourite book. Harry Potter world anyone?!
Whether you are a budding artist or a complete beginner, your new she-cave could provide you with the space you need to fully enjoy your hobby. Ensure that you add plenty of windows to your building, that you paint the interior in a neutral shade in order to reflect that light and allow plenty of floor area for moving around. You will be able to have a dedicated area for your brushes and tools, for your finished work, for your sketches and so on. A place for your love of art.
If you enjoy yoga at home, you’ll probably not enjoy the fact that there is usually something in the way, there is noise from other people and perhaps also from out on the street? By moving your yoga area outside to your she-cave you will be able to get away from it all. You will have plenty of space to do all of your exercises, by choosing insulation with noise-reducing qualities you will be able to drown out the world and you can create a room that you will love to relax in.
Summerhouse Tea Room
What’s better than being able to enjoy your she-cave with your friends?! Take your shed or garden room and transform it into a stunning summerhouse tea room where you can sit back and look over your garden from, where you can relax with a book, chat with friends and enjoy an English afternoon tea. Inspiring ideas here include adding curtains, bunting, soft lighting, maybe fairy lights? Add rustic iron chairs and a table, bring the outside in with the addition of plants and cover the walls in photos of you and your family. A stunning way to not only enjoy your outdoor space but also with good company.
Meditation and Chill Out Zone
And sticking with the theme of using your she-cave for some downtime, why not transform it into a meditation and/or chill out zone? A safe place for you to unwind, to take stock of the day, to process the week and clear your mind. This space could be just what you need and with a bit of interior inspo, you could have a warm, cosy, tranquil room that will help to re-set your buttons each week.
