But what the heck is a she shed?
Basically, it's a small, dedicated space outside your home that's set up for you to work on whatever you want to work on. It's a lady haven. You can decorate the shed however you like and set it up however you like.
We've rounded up a few she shed ideas in case you want to get in on the trend. Spoiler alert: you're going to want to get in on this trend.
Think about creating a space where you can go to paint, draw, sculpt or weave. Depending on your art of choice, you can design a space around your needs; include a large easel or two, giant rods for large-scale macrame projects or a small gallery wall to display your art.
If you're a scrapbooker, jewelry maker or knitter you could create an ultimate craft shed. Think large worktables, organized shelves for your supplies, bright overhead lighting, comfy work chairs and a big inspiration board.
If the highlight of your month is your book club meeting, think about designing a reading shed for you and your library-loving pals. You could fill your new space with bookshelves and comfy reading nooks. Bring in a wireless speaker so you can listen to your favorite podcasts or books.
If you're the type of 'she' who loves a little bit of everything, you might just want to set up a more general space that will let you do it all. Try setting up your she shed like an extension of your living room with a few comfy spots for you to relax, create or simply rest. A nice outdoor space will take your she shed to the next level.
If you're yoga-obsessed, a yoga she shed would be the perfect spot for you to get your "Om" on. You could easily set this space up with a few yoga mats, a wireless speaker and a basket to keep spare pairs of socks and yoga shoes.
She shed options are practically endless. If you're looking for some more inspiration, here are a few more ideas to consider:
