How To Build the Ultimate Man Cave
Let’s be honest, here: having a home that’s comfortable and which looks well-designed is good, sure, but it’s hard enough to get your heart racing with excitement, is it? In the home, only one thing will be able to do that: a man cave! These awesome pockets of the home have become increasingly popular in recent years, and with good reason – it’s like having your own social hangout spot in your house. And not just any hangout spot, but one that’s tailored to your individual interests and needs. What could be better? Below, we take a look at four tips that’ll make your man cave the most envied among your friends.
Carve Out Space
Some people will say that all you need for a man cave is to have a spare room, but this isn’t really true. We mean, you could place your man cave in any old room, but it’d take the edge off the whole thing if it was located next to a bedroom (so you need to be quiet) or you can hear people moving around outside the door. A man cave needs to have an air of exclusivity or at least a hint of it. Locate it in the basement or the attic, or anywhere that’s away from the thrum of the rest of the house.
Pick Your Theme
There’s no shortage of man cave styles for you to incorporate into your home. But it is important that you just pick one, and build the entire theme around that home. For example, you could go for the classy look, which will include things like a smoking chair, a bookshelf, and a whiskey bar. Or you could go for the sports fan look, which will make your man cave look and feel like a sports bar. While you don’t have to go all in on one particular theme, it’s better not to overlap too many different themes.
Your man cave is going to be the embodiment of your fun, man side. So don’t do things by half! You should have at least thing that gives the room the “wow factor.” On this front, pool tables, arcade video machines, and extra-large television screens are particularly useful. You want to be able to spend long hours enjoying this room; it needs to have more than just a couple of chairs and posters on the wall.
Add a Bar
It’s essential. Your man cave isn’t just for you; it’s for your friends too. And when they come around, you want to be able to make it feel like you’re actually doing something that’s not your usual “sitting in someone’s home” evening. If you have a bar, it’ll be like you’re in your own private club. Think of comfort, too. If you have bar chairs and comfortable seating, you’ll be able to enjoy long evenings with your friends and family.
No-one builds a man cave and regrets it! Begin your journey, and you’ll be having fun in yours in no time.
