Definitions aside, I think there’s one thing we can all agree on and that is the fact that men sometimes need their own space.

Decide what you want out of your man cave before you start. Paint the walls to accommodate what is happening in the space. Don’t be afraid to go bold and masculine as long as it is well lit for activities! Determine what items you need for the space like a mini fridge, or maybe even a full size kegerator. A TV is almost always a necessity especially if you are you playing video games or watching sports. The bigger the better. And don’t forget to personalize with man things! Sports memorabilia, deer, cars, you name it.
