Create The Perfect Man Cave

Create the Perfect Man Cave


Need a space to get away from it all or to watch the big game, hang out with friends or simply relax in solitude? That’s where a “man cave” can come in handy, a room of your own where you can find sanctuary whenever you need a break. With the Super Bowl just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get started – whether it is for you or a spouse.

Here are the steps…

First you’ll have to carve out an area in your home you that can be man-caved. It could be an corner in the basement, the garage, attic or an unused storage room. Make sure to discuss your plans with the family before getting started. You might have to make some compromises to get everyone on board, and your responsibility to them comes first.

Once you have the room picked out and everyone is aware of your project, the next step is to decide what you want your man cave to be used for. Do you want it to be the room where you and your buddies play poker on Friday nights or a room where you watch the game on Saturdays? What about your morning work-out routine? Yeah, maybe all of those. Knowing how you want to use your man cave will help you choose the right furniture and equipment to make it happen.

Now it’s time to get started. If necessary, insulate and soundproof the room first. You don’t want your man cave to be empty in the winter because the room is too cold or the neighbors complain about you and your friends being too loud. When that’s done, you can move on to the fun part: furnishing and decorating a room that you’ll love.

Comfy recliners a large flat-screen TV with a place to organize your entertainment collection, a mini-refrigerator or home bar, and even some ceiling fans to keep the air fresh – these are all things you’ll want to consider for your man cave. Of course, what you choose is ultimately up to you. After all, it’s your man cave! If you plan to use the room for projects, place furniture and appliances around the perimeter of the room to create space.

After everything is set up and your man cave is complete, take some time to relax and enjoy it. With your own personal space, now you don’t need weekend camping trips or long outings to rejuvenate and de-stress. Your retreat is within a few feet. Who knows, you might even let the family visit from time to time.
