Man Caves: They are Better Than Actual Caves

The Real Power of Man Caves

It’s no secret, we all need a place we can escape to so that we can re-energize and relax. At Xpand, Inc., we have the solution, and for men, it’s the man caveMan caves can be designed to fit every home layout and any specific preferences. Man caves are popular remodels that often take place in the basement of a home, and are created for very specific occasions and occupants. Do you want a space that is decked out by Minnesota Vikings merchandise and anti-Green Bay Packers propaganda? Alternatively, maybe a full-blown 90’s arcade time capsule that will let you reach those PAC-MAN high scores? With man caves, the limit is your passion.

A Place of Creativity, a Place of Passion

Man caves represent an epitome of respect and appreciation for a particular form of hobby, fandom, or recreational activity. They are a place in a home devoted to a singular part of life that is taken to its most extreme extent, all so that the occupants can completely indulge themselves in that particular experience. Man caves have skyrocketed in popularity since the early 2000’s because of their infinite capabilities for comfort and customization.

One of the most significant advantages of man caves is that it provides you with an opportunity to let your creative finesse go wild. Creativity allows you to channel your personality and treasured things into your man cave to own it completely, laying claim to all that it stands for.  

The designing process can involve an entire repainting of the room alongside an abundance of decoration, or a remodel of the room to create the most optimized space that will fit your intended functionality. If you are a sports person, this could mean the inclusion of a Foosball table, a fully stocked “sports night” fridge, and space for tossing the pigskin around, all while watching the big sporting event on the massive wall mounted TV with surround sound employed.  

A Place of Relaxation 

It’s hard, it’s hard to find time to relax and hard to find a place you can relax that will really be comfortable and re-energizing for the next day.

A man cave is your place of respite at the end of your tense days. Filled with things that you treasure and are excited to interact with, the man cave will be designed to optimize your enjoyment and refill your fun-meter. Comfy couches, comfortable blankets, plenty of snacks and entertainment, and the high possibility of falling into a deep joyful slumber, your man cave will be as relaxing as you see fit. Not to mention, since this is your place of respite it won’t be subject to the stressors of the outside world! (put a lock on the inside of the door if you really have to)

A Place to Exhibit Your Most Cherished Possessions

Cherished possessions can be anything from childhood belongings to big life achievements. Most people store their treasured possessions in the basement or loft space to keep them safe and out of the way. However, in your case of the man cave, they can be on display and appreciated, you will be able to look back fondly and reminisce on how far you have come. You could even display your objects in a grand display case or on shelving units, creating a sort of self-realizing alter of appreciation.

Man caves are simple in execution and concept but offer a vast amount of customizable options. When planning a man cave however, consider your houses rooms first and decide if you need to increase the square footage of a room to fit your vision.
