Forget Man Caves: 5 Fab 'She-Shed' Ideas for Females Only

September 8, 2017
BOOKMARK

Men can have their man caves; but who’s to say women can’t have their own dedicated spaces too? Here’s one more notch towards gender equality; cue she-sheds – fabulously feminine homes that speak to every girl’s inner soul. From pampering yourself to showing off your babies (aka handbags), we check out 5 ways you can get some private girly time at home (even if you’re living with a man).


1. Indulge Your Inner Shopaholic With A Walk-In Wardrobe

Set the ultimate atmosphere for picking and styling your outfit of the day. Complete with a hint of girly bling, comfy couches or a settee that you can lay back and browse through your wardrobe comfortably. Plus, this area also doubles as a nifty dressing room – with everything within reach.

2. Unwind In Your Personal Beauty Spa (AKA Bathroom)

If your beauty regimen includes a nightly soak, then a luxurious bathtub is a must-have for your she-shed! However, bathrooms in Malaysia can be pretty tiny, so if you don’t have ample space for a claw-foot bathtub, a compact Japanese soaking tub or corner tubs can still exude the same spa-like refinement.

Other things a lady should consider in her bathroom? Get an extensive Jack and Jill design with two sinks – one for you, another for your partner. Consult a lighting designer for “flattering” light options to make you look refreshed (and not unkempt after a relaxing soak) and install sufficient bathroom storage for your countless bath bombs, scented candles, massage oils and body scrubs.


3. Get Gorgeous with A Vanity Table

Put your game face on in a place that’s got your arsenal of beauty products on the ready; getting pretty is that much easier with a well-designed vanity area! Look for vanity sets with comfortable stools and enough space to put up your cosmetics, makeup tools and perfumes.

Tri-fold mirrors are fantastic for makeup application and if you do have the space, add a movable lighted magnifying mirror. This is an even more effective tool for tweezing or perfecting your eyeliner.

The lighting in your vanity area is as important as the quality of your mirrors. Hold off from using excessively bright lighting and fluorescents; instead choose softer lighting and layer them to illuminate from various angles.


4. Get Comfy With Cosy Floor Warmers

Women are more prone then men to suffer from cold sensitivity due to a lack of heat-generating muscles and hormones among others. Because of this, it can be uncomfortable or even painful for some to spend long hours on cold tile or stone floors, even though Malaysia has warm tropical weather!

If you have the option, choose warmer flooring materials which include vinyl, wood, cork, and laminate. But if you’ve purchased a home with mostly cold flooring where it isn’t possible to renovate and replace it just yet, consider using plush warming carpets in the home. For bedrooms and small living rooms, think about fully carpeting the space with wool materials for warmth.


5. Admire Your Collectible Bags and Accessories With A Luxe Display

If you are a fashionista, then you’ll absolutely love and appreciate a display area for your most prized possessions – handbags, jewellery and shoes! Best of all, there’s a display option for every budget!

Of course, if you want to go all out, hire a carpenter to craft a custom display. Trendy options include wall niches, designer brackets, coloured separators, unevenly-mounted custom shelves and even auto-revolving stands!
