After Googling Cabins + DIY we came across SheShed and we knew it was the one.
I needed a private studio for my unique type of hairdressing as a curl specialist for naturally curly hair – The Curl Next Door.
I love the ambience of the full wood construction, and the look and feel of it being a cabin – it fits perfectly with my approach to my curl specialist work – natural, gentle, relaxed yet right on point for what is needed.
I love the double French doors and raked ceiling with it’s perfect centre beam and have thoroughly enjoyed making the interior and exterior look exactly what I wanted it to look like with furnishings, flooring and extra touches for my guests.
Everyone who arrives for an appointment always comments on how much they love the studio as soon as they see it and come in the door. It’s a real point of conversation!
I loved that I could do some customisation to what I needed. I searched for a basin that would fit the remaining space after the windows were taken into account. I then designed around the basin for the splash back and shelving.
To let more light in, frame the living art of the garden I decided to put two windows on one side. That also added symmetry to the features inside the space. The latticework was removed for the windows, to give uncomplicated views of the garden they were designed to frame.
During winter I’ve found the shed to be very cosy. I have a heatpump which warms and cools the space very efficiently, and a portable dehumidifier which I use to remove the humidity that comes from working in the basin and drying hair off.
The customer service from the SheShed team helped me turn a delivered pile of wood, into the fully functioning private curl studio that it is, has been excellent. Nothing was too hard for the team to help with or advise on.
