5 Ideas to Turn Your Shed Into a Relaxing Space

Who says a shed can only be used for storing lawn tools and Christmas decorations? If you need to get away, look no further than your own backyard shed. Here are some ideas to help you transform this utilitarian space into a relaxing oasis that caters to your interests and hobbies.

Cook’s Nook

When your kitchen becomes too crowded for comfort, head to a “cook’s nook” to pore over cookbooks and experiment with recipes. All you need is an electric burner, a rack of pots and pans, utensils and a few ingredients.

Mini Spa

If pampering is what relaxes you, it’s easy to create a mini spa in your outdoor shed where you can stash your favorite beauty products, a foot spa, a comfy chair and a good selection of magazines. If you happen to be a stylist, turn your shed into a salon where you can relax and generate income!

Gaming Hub

Eliminate indoor distractions by setting up a gaming center in your shed. Mount a TV to the wall, install a surround sound speaker system, and add comfortable gaming chairs so you can really get in the game. Don’t forget shelving to store your game collection.

Yoga Studio

Breathe new life into a tired shed by turning it into a refreshing yoga studio. Start with a coat of white paint, add some plants and décor, roll out the yoga mat and enjoy a little Zen. No driving and no feeling self-conscious about exercising in front of others!
