It’s important to have a special space in your home where you can go to unwind, especially when things in the world get very hectic and stressful.
It’s healthy to take time for yourself and do the things you enjoy in an environment that looks pleasing and feels safe.
If you have a garage that is going unused or is underutilized, you may want to consider converting it into a “man cave” where you can go to relax, enjoy yourself and escape from the demands and responsibilities of the world.
If you want to make your garage into the perfect man cave, here’s an easy guide.
Check out some more great man cave ideas here.
Give Your Garage Floor and Walls Some Love
If you picture your garage as it is right now, you may be picturing a location that is dusty, dingy, or in poor repair. This is where your journey to the perfect man cave starts. Make sure you invest in a new floor coating for your concrete floor.
An epoxy coating from TSR Concrete Coatings will make your concrete floor both more durable and more attractive to the eye. TSR has rich experience in the garage floor coating industry and proven results from clients just like you.
As a homeowner, you may be apprehensive about letting a third party into your home to do concrete coating, but TSR gets great results every single day and your garage man cave will be no different from their other successes.
Your walls should get a new treatment as well, be that painting or a new stain to give it a fresh appearance. Having cleanly painted walls in your man cave will set your mind at ease and encourage you to spend more time there.
Decorate with the Things You Like
Since you have full reign over the design of your man cave, you can go all out. Without your spouse or children chiming in to give their opinion on the decorations of your space, you can choose things that you love and that make you happy.
That could be sports memorabilia from your favorite teams adorning the walls, old concert posters, or even a DIY decoration of your favorite albums and LP’s on vinyl.
Since your man cave is for you only, make sure the vibe of the room fits your interests and that you feel completely happy with the finished product.
Carve Out Space for the Hobbies and Interests You Have
One of the key aspects of your man cave should be a designated space for you to do the hobbies you love the most. For some, that may be shooting and hunting.
If this is the case for you, carve out an area of your man cave where you can house your hunting attire, shotgun, your shotgun case, and any other gun accessories you may have.
This will make it easy for you to head to that nook of your garage to get geared up for your next hunting trip.
You could also house a bookshelf with books on big game calls or the best campgrounds near shooting ranges.
Spare No Expense When it Comes to Comfort
You may think it’s silly to drop money on a new recliner or comfy couch for your garage turned man cave, but it isn’t.
Having comfortable furniture and finishings is key if you want to get the full effect of your time in your man cave.
Nothing says “me time” like cozying up in a recliner with a good book or being able to watch the game in high definition on a couch that can support you and your buddies. The man cave should be somewhere you feel comfortable, both mentally and physically.
