Regardless of whether the man in your life says so or most likely keeps quiet about it, they prefer to have an area where they can retreat to. This is generally away from the children and often from the wife or girlfriend as well. This retreat for some is the garage, while for others, the shed is their refuge where they can feel safe in their heads and can hear themselves think.
If your man doesn’t have access to a man cave, then you should think seriously about creating one for him. It could very well be the best gift that you have ever given.
1. Select The Perfect Area
There are doubtless different areas of your home where you can make a man cave. Most men are happy enough playing in the garage or basement of a home and some even in the loft areas. However, if you do not have any of these, you could be looking at either a spare room or creating a purpose-built building in the yard. Regardless of where you decide the man cave is going to be, you will have to make sure that there is enough room for your man to move around and for him to have his mates over, as undoubtedly, he will want to show it off.
2. Provide Plenty Of Technology
No man is complete without being surrounded by plenty of techs. This will most certainly involve a wide-screen TV attached to the wall, and a sound system but it could also be other items that he can play with, such as game consoles and slot machines or driving simulators.
3. Ensure That There Is A Refreshment Area
One of the most certain areas of the man cave should be the ‘refreshment’ area. A large fridge for beers and some sort of bar area so that he can serve his mates. That is not all, there should also be cupboards as well as a special drawer for bottle openers, torches, and anything else he may like to keep, like old mobile phones and batteries he’s not sure are dead or not.
4. Source Furnishings That You Know He Will Love
To top it all off and bring the man cave together, you will have to invest in furnishings that he will love. Selecting his favorite color schemes along with comfy seating will help him settle in quickly, even more so if you have put the effort in and provided him with something personal, such as having cushions, throws, or blankets made from clothes that he no longer wears but still has an attachment too.
To Wrap It All Up
So, as you can see, it can be easy enough to create a man cave in your home the only difficult bit will be keeping it a secret or keeping him out of it while it is being ‘put together’. However, if you feel that it could be a joint effort in the making, then he will no doubt enjoy choosing and installing the tech, it is likely that after this stage you will be left to complete the rest, especially purchasing the furnishings as he will be far too busy making sure all the tech works properly. After all, it will require almost constant testing.
