Every man needs a place where they can get away in their own house without distractions or family constantly bothering you. We gave up our bachelorhood, but that doesn’t mean we need to give up our own space. Rather than ask your wife to get a separate bedroom, it is best to just go ahead and construct a man cave. Whether it is in the basement, outdoor kitchen, garage, or the attic, it doesn’t really matter. You just need a place to put your feet up and have a bit of space for your own. For those of you who are unsure about how to decorate your man cave, here are some suggestions to give it the look you want.
Construct a Bunch of Shelving
A man cave should have a few nice shelves where you can display your rare items. Plus, you could turn it into your own library if you want. (Your wife may be more accepting of the room if you call it a library instead of a man cave.) Having shelves scattered around the room will give you great storage options as well.
Make Your Collections Part of the Show
Having a man cave means you get to share your likes and dislikes with all those who enter. If you hate the Chicago Cubs, put up a sign that says no Cub fans allowed. If you love the New York Mets, put a huge banner on the wall to let people know. Take your collection of major league baseball memorabilia and display it around the room for all to see. Put some wrestling posters of your favourite stars from when you were a kid on the walls.
If you have always wanted to start a collection of items, now is the time to do so. You will have the space, so you might as well do it. In fact, you can find diecast model cars of the vehicles you have always wanted and place them around the room. Perhaps one day you will have the real thing!
Finish It Out with Paint and a Bar
You can take any room, put a bar into it, and it instantly makes it cooler. You and a buddy could probably build a bar in one afternoon if you wanted. It is much easier than you may think. Then simply paint your man cave a good manly colour and you are ready for some relaxation!
