Helpful Tips For An Organized Home & Office

He Shed, She Shed

Jan 28, 2023

Who doesn’t want a room or space dedicated solely to you and your personal hobbies, likes and interests – a place to escape too where you’re surrounded by the many objects that make you happy, creative, relaxed and content. Enter the “she shed” and the “he shed” or “man cave.” Although the details of each of the spots will be worlds apart (think Mars and Venus!) the bones and the design will probably be very similar. Consider these options and must haves as you design this personal oasis within your home.


Pick a Spot

In other states and cities, the basement is often targeted for these grown-up playhouses. In Southern California, however, our homes just aren’t built with a cellar in mind. And above-ground space may be at a premium, so you’ll have to think creatively. The easiest and most obvious solution is an unused bedroom, but if you look around, you may find a few other locations waiting to be transformed. Do you have an extra car space in your garage where you could carve out a room? Is your attic accessible and useable? Do you have room in your yard to add a casita?


Technology Needs  

Outfit this spot with a good Wi-Fi connection, smart features, plenty of electrical outlets and USB ports. If it’s an outdoor space separate from your home, you may want to consider an exterior video camera for an added layer of security. If you really want privacy, you can add a video doorbell!


Be Flexible.

Just because you’re totally into model trains today, doesn’t mean that will be your hobby in a few years. Design cabinets, floor space and worktables, so they can be moved around and reconfigured. Talk to one of our professional designers who will see your vision and bring it to fruition.


Use Every Inch of Space.

This is not likely going to be a large room. As such your designer will know how to get the most bang for your buck and the most storage and shelving this room can possibly have. They’ll suggest options like open shelves, high and low cabinets and hardware that suits the vibe of your space. They’ll also give you hints as to how to use traditional closet features in this room in a different way. For example, shoe spaces are the perfect size cubbies for crafting supplies and collectibles. And tilt out laundry hampers can hold fabric, yarn and, well, anything you want!
