20 Man Caves That Are Heaven on Earth

Man caves are a place where men can hide away and get away alone, or with friends and relax. Men like to have a place of their own to retreat and have their own space to think, play, and just be men. Men caves are usually designed using a room in the house, or an extension of the home, typically a basement, a shed, or an attic. Men often use man caves for things they have no room for in their home; collectibles, tools, or other hobbies. Designing a man cave can be fun. It’s all about designing a room that is functional for what you want to use the room for and decorating it just the way you want without having anyone else’s say. One of the biggest attractions for men and man caves is that they get to decide how to decorate their space, from what goes on the walls to what they keep in it. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you want, and some men go all-out and create out-of-this-world spaces.

Why men like man caves

Men have a need to have a space that’s all their own where they can escape to be, well – men. Men have always had a need for alone time, time to hang with friends, work on hobbies, watch sports, and reconnect with their manhood. It is a place that is typically regarded as a “man only” space where no women are allowed. They are used to bond with friends and get rowdy without the risk of being told to act a certain way because women are around. Like in a dorm room or a first apartment, men like to gather with other men to watch sports, work on hobbies, even just kick back to have a beer and feel like they can be themselves without being judged or monitored by females. And that’s just what a man cave can give a man – space.

What to put in a man cave

A man cave should be a place that will be functional for what you want to use it for. It is a space that reflects who you are and what you like. Setting up your man cave can be exciting and enjoyable. Have fun with it. Men can use their imagination and really create the perfect retreat with their room or man cave space. Some ideas of what to put in your man cave can include:

  • Comfortable furniture – Make your man cave the perfect place to kickback and watch a game, drink a beer, take a nap, hang with your buddies, whatever you want to do. Having comfortable pieces of furniture can make it the perfect place to really enjoy your personal space. A comfy couch, an overstuffed recliner, a coffee table, are all ideas of what can make your space a little more relaxing and functional.
  • Refrigerator – What more can a man ask for than to have his own personal fridge in his space? To be able to hoard your favorite snacks and beverages in your own space is a dream come true for most men. The freedom to grab what you want, when you want, or host your buddies while watching a game is what many guys want for their man cave. For a lot of guys, having control of a fridge and free access to beverages in their own room is important and for many guys, one of the biggest draws to creating a man cave.
  • Games and sports equipment – Whether you are into pool, video games or enjoy another hobby you can set up in your man cave, and have some fun is what it’s all about. Pool tables are common for man caves, as well gaming systems, dart boards or golf putting sets. Make your man cave your favorite place to hang out by adding a pool table, pinball machine, video gaming system, dartboard, or your favorite playtime game.
  • Your favorite hobby – Most guys have a hobby they enjoy. Whether it’s cars, sports, hunting or another hobby, make your man cave a place you can enjoy your hobby by putting your collectibles in your man cave or setting your space up so you can work on your hobby. Cases and shelving units are ideal for organizing your collectibles, while tables and counters give you space for working on your projects. Whatever purpose you want your man cave to serve, including the right pieces of furniture or equipment can make it your own piece of heaven.
  • Workout equipment – Have you always dreamt of having your own gym? Set up a part of your man cave with some weights, a workout bench and other pieces of equipment where you can pump a few weights, in private without ever having to leave your home. If a workout space is important to you in your man cave, set up an area of your man cave that’s dedicated to a little private gym-time.
  • Television – Install a television in your man cave so you can plan to watch your favorite sports games in your man cave. In your man cave there’s no one to tell you to turn the channel, stop flipping channels, or grab the remote. So why not enjoy your space even more with a television that’s all your own.

What you envision is what you can create for your man cave. Use your imagination and turn that extra room, garage, basement, or shed into the perfect man cave that gives you time to yourself, to be yourself. Getting ideas for your man cave is easy. You can view pictures of what others have done to create their dream, man cave.  Whether your space is large or small, it’s all about having that space that makes you feel happy, gets you away from the every day worries, and where you can go to forget about work and the headaches of life. It’s where you can relax with your friends, or by yourself.
