No space left in the house for guests? Create your own tranquil guest retreat in your backyard with a SheShed cabin. Whether it's a cosy space for when friends or family come to stay or a poolside retreat to relax out of the sun. A dreamy place to rest from the hustle or turn your garden into a picturesque airbnb retreat! 

Essential Styling Items for your Backyard Guest House: 

  • Queen Bed or Bunks, depending on how many guests you would like to stay. Our Star Cabin and Tussock will comfortably fit a Queen Bed, and if you would like more room our larger kitsets will also fit another queen or bunks as well.  
  • Beautiful Linens in neutral tones or a restful place to sleep. Want to add a little colour? Do this with cushions and throws. The calmest palette, is always soft earthy neutrals and whites.  
  •  Bedside Table or Drawers – to store books or a table lamp.  
  • Occasional Chair – To relax and soak in the peaceful serenity of your garden retreat. Cosy up with a book, or simply sit and listen to the bird song. 
  • Hooks to hang towels or clothing. These small feature hooks can be the perfect spot to hang bath towels when using a shared bathroom or beach towels if you are close to the ocean. A must especially for a poolside cabin! 
  • Choose some beautiful artwork for the wall, keeping with your tranquil retreat and soft earthy tones. Why not make it personal with a local piece of art or landscape portrait of the area.  
  • Soft sheer curtains – beautiful sunlight streaming through. Sheers create a dreamy resort feel as well as add privacy.  
  • A small heat pump or air-conditioning. The Nordic Spruce timber from the SheShed cabins does have some natural insulation to regulate the heat, but if you live in a very hot or very cold climate, you might like to make your guests a little more comfortable with a controllable air unit.
