She Sheds are a new Trend in Modern Garden Sheds
According to Country Living the latest trend in Garden sheds across the UK is called the “She Sheds”.
Traditionally the Garden Shed has been considered place of solace for men, a place to store, work on projects and build things or simply a place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the home.
The She Shed is here to Stay.
It is a reality that more and more ladies are now staking claim to the garden shed as a place of isolation that they can call their own. Whether it be a haven for gardening, potting and nurturing plants or a quiet spot to relax with a good book, a radio and a comfy chair, or a hobby area to get the best from the down time away from work and the stress’s of modern family living.
Step 1: Is to clean out the clutter from the shed. Sort through the old garden tools and boxes, decide what will be kept and where it can be stored then donate the things you no longer have a need for.
Step 2: Give your she shed a fresh coat of paint, or add insulation for those cooler months. Add some colour to give your new she shed some character, if you are using the she shed as a place of relaxation use pastel colours and to use your shed all year round you may consider insulation.
*Insulation tip – Bubble wrap is a cost-effective alternative to insulation boards and can be covered with chip board for as smooth finish and painted to reflect the internal style of your she shed.
Step 3: Design in the purpose of the she shed, once you have decided on the purpose of the shed then you should start to put in place everything you need in your she shed or garden workshop. For example, if your “she shed” is to be used as a craft workshop then it’s important to have a place to work from with easy access to tools and materials along with a place for inspiration and ideas.
Add extra shelving, workspace, storage or seating to personalise the she shed and to get the most from your she shed.
Step 4: Decorating the she shed adds character and creates a space that you can enjoy. Decorating the she shed should not cost an arm and a leg, craft fairs, car boots and flea markets offer unique and unexpected finds that can be transformed into the She Sheds key features.
Step 5: Bring the outside environment inside, by surrounding the she shed with natural and grassy plants, vines and window boxes and adding freshly picked flowers in feminine floral patterns to create the hideaway feature to your she shed.
Step 6: Make the entrance inviting, your she shed should be inviting as a gesture to invite you and your friends to spend time. To make the entrance enticing you can add structural features, improved lighting or decorations (such as romantic outdoor curtains) to create an impact.
Step 7: Make the she sheds features a reflection of yourself or your pastime. As your hobbies and aesthetics change, update your shed to reflect them—after all, it’s your space! It should transform with you. And of course, we can’t forget the best tip of all: There are no rules when it comes to creating the perfect she shed—it’s all about you being you.

Dutch Barn Review
After a lot of research decided to go with Kevin and his team rather than someone local. I was a little anxious with my decision, but also coming from Yorkshire went with my gut feel, and of course the great price Kevin quoted. All went very very smoothly and I’m very happy with the barn. Construction and build quality are top notch. Could not be happier!!!
Heavy duty apex shed
Really impressed with the shed . Kevin and his mate couldn’t do enough when installing. They done a fantastic job and the shed is excellent and quality is great. I would definitely recommend this product and the company.
14 x 10 Superior HD Tanalised Garden Workshop, central double doors, 1 fixed standard window each side, Premium Black felt upgrade.
Kevin & his team were absolutely excellent. If you are looking for a workshop / shed then do not waste your time trawling the internet. Kevin was excellent value for money, responded to queries quickly, delivered when he said he would and the whole process was professional and faultless. Really don’t bother looking anywhere else just give Sheds Direct a call. Thanks Kevin everything is looking great 🙂
