If spending time in a fantasy world playing a video game or reading a novel can help your mental health, then it makes sense that building a small haven in your garden will do much the same thing. Having somewhere to retreat to after a long day and just sit peacefully and comfortably is such a blessing and anyone can have one.
The shed has come a long way from its original purpose, but it seems that now, whether you choose a Wendy house style or go with a large space like Armstrong Steel corp offer, your shed can bring you so much more than a few old plant pots and a funny smell. In fact, a shed is a perfect space to create your fantasy world, whatever that might be.
The Shed Pub/ Bar Shed
For lots of people, their comfortable fantasy space is feeling safe, nestled in a bar or a pub with a refreshing drink and a packet of peanuts to share. It’s not surprising then that the shed pub or bar shed has become such a fashionable must-have bit of garden furniture.
Achieving your shed bar is quite simple, especially if you choose a design with wide doors that open outwards to make use of the garden more. All you need is to put some shelves up for your various bottles and invest in a few cocktail making bits and pieces like a shaker and strainer, as well as a measuring set. Invite your friends around and relax in the comfort of your garden.
The She Shed
Women’s sheds have been up and coming for a while, though there are plenty of clichés already emerging with pink painted wood and everything finishes with ribbon. If you’re a woman and you have a shed, you can rewrite she shed rules.
Sheds are an ideal spot for doing activities that you wouldn’t usually get to do in the house for the kids and other household distractions, take time to think about what you would like to use your shed haven for.
You could create office space and start building up a side business. You could use the room for crafts, a small cabin like retreat with comfortable furniture to relax on. Or you could create a small spa and sit quietly, relaxing with slices of cucumber on your eyelids. The options are endless.
The Quiet Retreat
The best idea for a shed, though, is to create a simple space that you can use to escape your reality and get into a good book or play a video game. All you need is a comfy chair, a couple of plug sockets and just ten minutes where you can shut the door and get away from the world.
Add in cushions, scented candles, and a small heater to maximise your comfort. Then sit back and relax. This is what sheds are really for and having this haven is all you need. Well, that and a politely worded do not disturb sign.
