Celebrate Dad in his Man Cave

June is the month that we celebrate dear old dad.  In honor of Father’s Day, let’s discuss Man Caves!  A Man Cave is defined as a male sanctuary.  Every man has a basic, primal, instinctual need to have a space to call his own. It’s his territory; a place where they can recharge their batteries after a long day on their job, and a place where they can hang out with their buddies.

Man caves have multiple purposes: they are a place to be alone, to be away from women and from female sensibilities, to indulge in hobbies, and to hang out with male friends. It is, loosely, a male-only space to retreat to watch sports or play video games.   In a sense, it is a way to recreate some of the space and freedom from their bachelor days since it was like a “pad” similar in feeling to a frat house game room, a college dorm or  like tree houses from your childhood: no girls allowed.

These traditionally male-only spaces are enhanced with improvements and masculine aesthetic choices. Man caves can be equipped with accessories such as refrigerators,  putting greens, giant TVs, pool tables, and entertainment centers. A man cave may also be fitted out with a bar and sports memorabilia.  These are fan caves.
New trends include moving the caves out of the basements and garages.  Here is where they’re going:
Transform closets of all sizes into mini man caves. Converting men’s bedroom closets into mini man caves is a growing trend, from large walk-ins to more common sizes. Some guys create cozy reading nooks, others simply make a space to hide away with prized possessions. Even the smallest spaces can be transformed.
Backyard Bar Sheds are becoming quite popular. You can get as creative and elaborate as you’d like. Transform your own basic shed into a mini-backyard pub that’s sure to impress. It is easy to add new doors, a bar, seating, a little porch and some fun pub games.
Hide Out in the Attic. Convert unused attic space into a man cave with lots of entertainment options. Cover the ceiling with the right material to help with the acoustics.
