For some, it’s a pipe dream. For others, it’s a necessity. A man cave is a moniker commonly used to describe a room that’s specifically designed for the “man of the house.” While some people argue that segregating the man’s space from the woman’s space is a strange concept—considering that couples are supposed to share all parts of the house—the man cave has been growing in popularity over the years. But in order to maintain marital bliss and still achieve your man cave dreams, here are some simple tips to make everyone happy.
Keep it Classy
Just because you’ve designated a room in the house as your very own room, it shouldn’t mean that you can do absolutely whatever you want with it. Keep in mind, your man cave is still a part of the house, and so it should therefore somewhat reflect the style and effort of the rest of the decor and respect the other occupants of the household. For instance, instead of hanging posters of scantily dressed celebrities on the walls, why not opt for other artwork that still suits your style but doesn’t scream “dorm room.”
Keep it Open for Family Visitors
Let’s face it. Man caves are awesome. It’s the one room in the house where you can feel free to indulge in your inner child. Foosball tables, super comfy couches, wet bars, video games, billiards: it’s no wonder you don’t want to leave. But don’t think you’re the only one in the house who likes to have fun. Although it’s supposed to be a place designed for your entertainment and relaxation, inviting your significant other into your man cave from time to time is a considerate gesture that will really be appreciated and not soon forgotten.
Keep it Organized
Having free reign of four walls doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to keep it clean and organized. Don’t let the pizza boxes, beer cans and DVDs take over your floor and create a chaotic mess.
