How to Build a Man Cave

Administrator


If you’ve never heard of a man cave, it’s an area inside your house where you can do things in private, such as watching movies, playing games or just hanging out. It’s a place where you can escape from the grind of daily life and to quickly rest and unwind. As the name implies, a man cave is for guys only so it’s off-limits to everybody else.

 

Here are things to consider when building a man cave:

 

 Decor


A man cave is primarily a happy space. Use your interests as a guide on how your man cave should look and feel. Recreate a bar from the 1930s! Design an homage to your favorite movie characters! Build your very own throne room!

 

Power


You’ll need electricity and light to power your gadgets and appliances. Thinking of adding a fridge, beer cooler and a couple of wide screen TVs? Make sure you have enough power for them all.

 

Space


If it’s just a place for you alone, a small area might be okay. But if friends are coming over to watch the game with you, then you need something bigger. Plan accordingly.

 

Furniture


Get proper tables and chairs if you’re into card and board games. For movie nights, get recliners, a cushy couch and some bean bags.  Remember, comfort is key!

 

Sound/Noise


All-night videoke with friends? Soundproof your walls. HardieFlex® Durable Fiber Cement board can work to meet your requirement for an acoustic-rated system wall. So you can party hard without disturbing the neighbors!
