Create A Man Cave Garage
Did you know that garage man caves are therapeutic? I’m just kidding, but in all seriousness, a man cave garage is sure to be the talk of the town and your home within your home.
Man caves give us the freedom to express ourselves. It gives us the personal space we sometimes need in the middle of the weekly grind we go through 52 times a year. The benefits are endless, but converting a garage into a man cave is certainly easier said than done.That is why I have researched and gathered the 4 steps you must take to convert and remodel a garage into a dream man cave.
Most garages have one light installed, but when you’re hosting poker night or your next fantasy football draft, you need to illuminate the room.
Try incorporating lights that match your style. If you’re going with an industrial look, look for pendants lights that match the color scheme. If you want a more modern touch, go with recessed lights. Installing your own lighting can be tricky. If you have an attached garage, the project is a bit easier, but if you have a detached garage, you may want to find a professional electrician.
Now it’s time to get into the fun stuff. As I noted in the ultimate Man Cave, a recliner is the No. 1 essential item all man caves need. The age-old picture of a man drinking a beer on his recliner in his man cave has not died. However, the modern man cave has evolved and you need comfortable seating for all your friends. Whether you add a sectional, a huge leather couch, multiple recliners or even bar seats, make sure you have enough seating for you and all your guys.
3º Bar & Fridge
The man cave is supposed to be convenient and it surely won’t be if you have to run inside every time you want a drink or another sandwich. If you have space, try to build your own bar in the corner of your new man cave garage. Leave space and electrical outlets for a mini fridge or a larger one if you can fit it. Believe me when I say that without a fridge, your friends will not enjoy this man cave.
No man cave can be complete without its fair share of sports memorabilia. If you have always wanted a place to show off that Derek Jeter ball or a wall to hang that LeBron James jersey, your man cave is it. If you’re not into sports, add movie posters, pictures of the kids or anything that makes you happy. It’s your man cave. Be sure to add all the personal flair you want!
Garages are the perfect location for a man cave. If separates the home and your home within your home. It gives you the freedom you demand after a long week. Now that you know what you need, go out and start building or designing your own garage man cave.
