Once you have received the go-ahead to get started turning your garage into a man cave, you must make sure that you have a solid plan in place to make your dream a reality. Here are four ways to create a man cave that will even please your wife.
Consider the Flooring
Before you decide what type of flooring to install in your cave, you need to consider what primary activities it will host. If you plan on hosting game-watching parties, you might want to consider something more comfortable, such as rugs or carpet. If you plan to use your man cave primarily as a workshop, then a better flooring option would be durable and practice tile or concrete.
Do Not Neglect the Decor
Just because this is a space designed by a man for a man does not mean that you should neglect the decor. A properly decorated man cave can make the place more welcoming to guests. This is the ideal space to let your personality shine through. Use this man cave as a blank canvas on which to show your interests and hobbies.
Unlike other areas of the house which may be off-limits, a man cave is a great place to hang your favorite team pennants, band posters, movie and television-show memorabilia and a whole host of other items that reflect your personality.
Keep it Free of Clutter
Even though your man cave is where you and your friends will go to unwind, it is still a good idea to keep it tidy and free of clutter. In order to do this, you are going to need some type of organizational system. A sturdy set of garage cabinets can help you to keep your man-cave essentials in order while adding to the aesthetic of your special place.
Ensure Proper Function
Before you can enjoy the fruits of your labor, you must work to make sure that your man cave has all the right multimedia hookups and wiring needed to do the things that you want it to do.
If you plan to use your garage man cave to watch sports, you need to make sure that it has a solid sound system, a television or satellite hook-up, an internet connection if you plan to stream any games and enough outlets to plug everything in. With the right materials and construction, you can create a garage man cave that will please both your friends and your wife.
