The world can be a stressful place sometimes. With the rush of the 9 to 5 life, the horror of rush hour traffic, getting the kids ready for school and preparing meals for the household. At times it feels like an achievement if we get a moment to breath and escape from the world and its responsibilities.
In fact, it is often the case that our homes are tailored to make it easier to get through the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This means that there are very few opportunities and dedicated spaces to really unwind from the stresses of your daily routine.
Thankfully with a little creativity and thinking outside the box you can create your very own sweet escape, in fact you need look no further than your garden for inspiration.
Yes, believe it or not the humble shed is the perfect way to escape from the stresses and rush of your day to day routine.
Now you are probably sat there thinking ‘how can a place which you would normally associate with garden tools and that old lawnmower that never starts, be a place of escapism. Some of you may not even have a shed in the first place so why would you need to invest in one now.
Well for starters the shed is a remarkable customisable feature. From purpose all the way to décor, all of these features can be tailored exclusively to what helps you to unwind. Now this can be somewhat limited to pre-existing shed designs – however for new designs the potential is almost limitless.
In fact, you can create a shed which essentially becomes your own private escape, with comfortable furniture and luxurious décor from decorative wall panelling all the way to stylish (but cost effective) laminate flooring. Of course, bringing about a soothing and relaxing atmosphere could be as simple as a lick of paint and some personal touches.
However more elaborate designs have the potential to go even further with multiple levels and even an electric supply for the ultimate man cave or she shack.
This actually leads into the second way that sheds are a great place of escapism, as they are a fantastic place to express and engage in your hobbies and interests.
Thanks to their fantastic versatility, you can customise your shed to be an outlet for your hobbies. The potential is virtually limitless from model making, brewing, carpentry and even film and gaming baring there is a power supply.
This is why it’s always a great option to build a shed from the ground up, as you can design it with your hobbies and interests in mind. Examples of this are music and rehearsal rooms, a place of meditation or even a private library; the latter being a fantastic idea thanks to the natural ambience adding to the feeling of escapism.
All of these examples contribute to creating a perfect environment for you to escape from the stresses of the world – all thanks to the humble unassuming shed.
