August may be coming to a close, but outside it’s only getting hotter. After an afternoon of working out in the yard or playing a game with the kids, you’ll need a place to cool off, kick back, relax and enjoy a cold one. It might be time to consider adding a man cave to your interior design.
With a man cave, you always have a place to retreat to when you need a break; a place to hang out with the guys; a room to watch the big game. Before you get started, consider the amount of space you have and how you want to use it.
If everyone had the money and room to design the “ultimate man cave,” there’s no question that your setup would be completed with the largest TV possible, a pool table, home bar and seating for all of your friends. Of course, this is not a very realistic dream for most. Work with the space you have and decide what features you would want and use most frequently. Maybe you want to set up a room where you can host parties for the big game. Home theater seating can offer a better TV-watching experience. If you want to host ping-pong tournaments, forgo the seats to make room for the table.
When you’ve decided on furniture and equipment for your man cave, next think about decor. You may or may not have helped decide on color palettes, patterns or decor in other rooms in your home, but with a man cave, you can have complete control over what goes on the wall to make the space truly yours. Now is the time to get out those posters for old movies, bands or athletes!
A man cave can be an entire basement or it can be merely a room, slightly bigger than a large walk-in closet. No matter the size, the space is yours to enjoy. Get started making your man cave today!
