While we love a good she shed, we want to give a shout out to their counterpart, the man cave. Whether the man cave is a corner of the garage or backyard shed hideout, it’s a great place to let your stuff take center stage. So just what makes a perfect man cave? While it all boils down to personal style, there are a few things that can help you turn your space into the envy of the neighborhood.
How will you use the space?
Whether you choose to use your man cave for watching the games, playing poker with the guys, or making music with your garage band, your man cave is the perfect place to relax by taking into consideration how you’re going use it. The most important thing is to figure out the amount of space you need. Then you can plan your cave accordingly. Start by considering building style and size. If you’re planning on using the man cave for entertaining, think about adding a front porch for summer events. For a multi-purpose man cave, an interior partition wall, or shelving, is a useful way to separate space. Throw down some rubber mats, a bench press, and some weights to create your own private gym.
Pick out the “look”
It’s time for your style to be in the spotlight. Break out the neon signs that have been collecting dust in the garage, pull out your old air hockey table, and be sure to install a multi-media zone. Don’t forget seating! If your man cave is mainly an entertaining space, be sure to supply plenty of comfortable chairs.
Do a little DIY
Your Man Cave is the perfect place to show off your handyman skills. Build some shelving units, put together your own reclaimed wood wall, or design your own bar top. Put your latest DIY projects on display and get ready to take orders from family and friends!
