Stylish “She Sheds” Are the Relaxing Women’s Version of Man Caves

The “man cave” is a home design trend that's seemingly been around forever. Often confined to a basement or spare bedroom, they offer men a place to retreat from the stresses of everyday life. Since guys have these sanctuaries, it's only fair that women are afforded the same luxury with a special place to call their own. And in fact, these havens do exist–they're known as she sheds!

Unlike the man cave, a she shed is separate from the main house. As the name suggests, they're compact dwellings typically located in the backyard that are roughly the size of a garden hut. Aside from that, however, there are no rules for a she shed and the decor possibilities are endless. Popular uses include craft rooms, reading areas, and yoga studios.

For those that want their own she shed, there are many companies that sell pre-fabricated buildings which can then be accessorized however they like. Many women turn to Pinterest, which has an endless supply of ideas for how to get the most out of this small space. Check out a few refreshing examples, below.
