The idea of a man cave is a very appealing one – somewhere to relax in peace, away from the pressures of work and family life. The question becomes where you should put it. An easy idea is to convert your garage as it already has all the bare bones that you need to get the job done.
If you don’t already have a garage but have some space in your yard, then you are still in luck. Turn your piece of unused outdoor space into your very own garage man cave, using a prefabricated garage kit, and enjoy sports and boys’ nights with your friends. Once you have this in place, it is time to make the area your own.
Every man is different, and what you include in your man cave will depend on your personal preferences. Some standard equipment, however, would be a big-screen TV to watch sports and movies, a fridge for cold beers and maybe a dart board, pool table or something similar. Something that is guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment for you and your buddies is a poker table. Just make sure that you get some practice in before inviting the guys over for a game, otherwise, you may end up red in the face and out of pocket.
If you enjoy a bit of DIY, creating a man cave is the ultimate home project. Be in total control of the appearance of your sanctuary, and get the satisfaction of a job well done, by painting the walls, fitting the floors and putting up shelving. Look around online for plenty of original and low-cost ideas to make your perfect private space. Finish up with some comfy furniture and attractive décor, and your man cave will be the envy of your friends. The only problem you’ll have is getting everyone to go home.
