Your Man Cave - The Makes of Who You Really Are
Men are warriors one way or another; fighting their fight on a daily basis. As tough as they are, at the end of the day, they have to recharge their power and replenish the blood they shed some time ago. Enter the Man Cave.
Like a castle to a king, a fortress to a sorcerer, or a citadel to a ruler, a Man Cave is a place not susceptible to external influences but by the man himself. It is where a man seeks refuge. It’s his sanctuary, his temple, his haven. Whatever life has in store for him, whatever fight he has to face, the Man Cave is his go-to place when he’s done with them all.
He was taught, if not carved by society’s norms, to always put his game face on out there - but when the fight’s over, when he turns his game face off, his Man Cave is where he’ll be.
Man Caving: 101
We have defined what a Man Cave is and have established points regarding its importance; why men have to have their Man Caves. Time to get down to the nitty-gritty of building one.
Find your spot
Where would you want to retreat? It can be in a specially equipped garage, a spare bedroom, a media room, a den, an attic, a roof top, or even a basement. Wherever feels like home to you, find it and own it.
Choose your theme
With tons of themes you can choose from, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lose yourself in the process. But to help you get started, here are the top 5 Man Cave themes you can choose or get Man Cave ideas from.
#1 The Bar
Yes, most Man Caves have built-in home bars in them; probably a small corner or one side of the wall. However, if you are the type who is extra passionate about drinks and is all-in for that booze experience, why not turn your Man Cave into “the” bar that becomes you and your friends go to watering hole?
#2 The Game Hub
Admit it, some of us don’t actually outgrow playing video games. No matter how old we get, how many responsibilities we are accountable for, there’s just this gravity pull that binds us to gaming consoles of every kind or make. If your mind is shouting “Guilty!” to this, you know your pick, man.
#3 The Garage
One thing that we all go crazy for, other than beautiful women (and food, beer, sports…) are shiny, well-oiled cars. If you have the heart for automotives, be it the vintage kind or the modern drives - and probably a knack for disassembling and reassembling them in bits and pieces - then this garage Man Cave theme is for you.
#4 The Sports Jock
Bring your A-game and take your love for sports to the next level with this theme. Whether you are obsessed with just one sport or a wide scope of them, it doesn’t matter. You can go all out and the world won’t have a thing or two to say to stop you.
#5 The Tool Hut
If you are the Handy Man type, the one who always has to have something to do with his hands (focus, bro, focus), the one who has tools for toys, then no doubt this is the theme you want to go for.
Now, there is no one-size-fits-all sentiment here. If you choose one of these five themes, great, but don’t limit yourself to just that. Your Man Cave can be a little bit of everything, and there are lots of other themes you can choose from.
Unleash your creative side (the one you say you don't have), ask around, do your research. This is your Man Cave we are talking about, and the only opinion that truly matters is yours.
Get down to the details
You found your spot, you have chosen a theme, now let’s proceed to the fun part, shall we? Time to find the things that will bring your Man Cave to life.
We’d like to remind you that this part might get you all giddy and excited. It’s like buying your first car or experiencing your first kiss all over again. With that said, it’s easy to lose focus and get distracted for a variety of reasons. To help you get your head in the game, here are some of the factors to consider when making a purchase for your Man Cave:
Building your Man Cave is a big deal, but it doesn’t need to be your everything, even at the moment. With the empire that you have to run or any other equally important things that you have to get a hold of, it is wise to utilize resources that technology today can offer. Yes, a smart, time-saving move would be to make purchases online.
There are hundreds of sources where you can purchase the what-have-yous for your Man Cave. The important thing to remember here is to choose a reliable source. You don’t want your hard earned money wasted on lousy sellers who are only after profits and not the consumers’ well-being.
A Man Cave plays an important role in your life. Therefore, it is wise to consider purchases for it as investments. Whether you opt for the bar or the game hub theme, with thorough research, there are good-quality products available. Even when you just need some soft stuff or something to enhance your Man Cave walls with, you will find it.
A real man doesn’t just look tough and buff, he secretly also has a heart for the complete package. Purchase from stores that actually give back to society. Believe it or not, there are online stores that give a certain percentage of their profits to people who need help most. With the fast-paced world that we live in, it’s not every day that we get a chance to share the love and lend a helping hand. Don’t pass on this one.
Your Man Cave Is All You!
A Man Cave is a place where you get to leave your guard down. It should be a place where you don’t lose yourself with everything going on in the world. Yes, you will soon have to venture back out into the world, back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But remember this: your Man Cave is not a projection of what anyone says it should look like. There is only thing your Man Cave should represent - who you really are.Your Man Cave, Your Rules, Your Style.
