3 Inspirational ‘Man Cave’ Ideas to Pass Along for Father’s Day
With Father’s Day right around the corner, you might have already purchased a funky tie for your dad’s growing collection. However, you may want to consider gifting him with some “man cave” inspiration ideas as an extra bonus present.
We all know just how important it is for dads to have their own space to relax and unwind in. But, before you can start seeking out a general contractor to renovate, you’ll want to have an idea of what you want the space to accomplish.
So in addition to that Garfield tie, pass along these three tips that all dads will be sure to enjoy.
Location, Location, Location
When it comes to real estate, we’ve all heard the phrase, “location, location, location.” Well, the same can be said of a man cave. While man caves are typically found in basements, you’ll want to think about the best location for your man cave.
A man cave in the basement is great for those who are rowdy sports fans or who never quite gave up their dream of becoming a rock star. Basements with sound proofing are great for your over enthusiastic sports or music fan!
On the other hand, consider remodeling a study for the more study oriented individual. Deep seated comfortable furniture, darker toned walls, custom cabinets, shelving and a handcrafted desk will create a refuge that will appeal to many men.
Another obvious location for a man cave is your humble garage! Think of the garage as a blank canvas that you can do anything with to become the envy of the neighborhood. This particular man cave will satisfy the sports enthusiast, the musician, and the wood-crafting dad. It will also require a good budget as it may need insulation, painting, new flooring, heating and AC, and adequate ventilation. The ROI for this type of remodel will make any man, or future homeowner ecstatic.
Add Some Style
Don’t worry about disrupting the aesthetic of the rest of the house. Your dad’s space should reflect his interests and personality; it’s his cave after all. It should be an area he is comfortable in, where he enjoys having his buddies over to, and most importantly, feels that this is his domain.
Let one focal point determine the entire ‘look’ of the space, and work from there. For example, if your dad is a baseball fan, use his collection of baseball memorabilia to influence the style of his “man cave”. Then you can start adding decorations based on the central theme.
Consider the Layout
In the end, you want your dad to enjoy a fully functional space that meets all his needs. For a huge sports fan, having the space for extra seating when hosting a group of friends and a large TV or several TVs is important and will make all the difference to an event.
Conversely, installing state-of-the-art speakers, sound baffles, and all the latest gadgets will fit men that love or play music. For the man that simply appreciates peace and quiet, consider soundproofing to minimize noise coming from the rest of your home.
No matter his style, your dad will definitely appreciate your willingness to help craft the ultimate man cave. However, we can’t promise that you’ll ever get to see him again once it’s completed.
