LIGHTING DECOR

Any object or appliance in a man cave is considered a decoration. For example—a pool table is not only useful. It can serve two purposes; it can be a decoration, and you can play with it as well. Anything you decide to display or store in your man cave is a decoration. Your old gaming consoles, a video arcade game, a guitar, and all the other stuff your spouse does not want to see in the main house. Consider having a man cave an opportunity not only for relaxation but a chance to buy more of the things you love.

HOME THEATER

#1 TV

A TV is the main attraction if you are building a home theater. Choosing the right sized TV is crucial in a man cave. Bigger does not always mean better. You have to follow the viewing distance and TV size ratio.

  • SAMSUNG FLAT 82-INCH 4K UHD 8 SERIES SMART LED TV

(Price: $2000)

This 82-inch TV is what $2000 can get you. That is very low compared to the old days. I bought a 42″ Samsung Plasma TV for the same price back in 2007. The prices and features sure have changed a lot since then. This TV looks very sleek, and it is ultra-slim. It has HDR plus, so you can view movies as it was intended to.

  • SAMSUNG CURVED 65-INCH 4K ULTRA HD 8 SERIES SMART LED TV

(Price: $890)

Voice commands are such a revolutionary way of watching your favorite shows and streaming your favorite movies.

  • TOSHIBA 43-INCH 4K ULTRA HD SMART LED

It can also work with Apple airplay so you can mirror content such as web pages and presentations on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. You can also control this TV using your Apple assistant, Siri.

Helpful tip: For choosing a TV, the size should be fit for the distance of viewing. A TV that is too big will not give you the experience you are looking for. For 1080p TVs, the suggested interval for watching is the TV size multiplied by 2.5. If you have a 65-inch, the correct distance should be at 162.5 inches. (13 1/5 feet)

SHE SHEDS

Men are not the only people who need private space. Women get stressed too. Women have a lot more reason to have a place to relieve stress. Not only do they get stressed with their jobs, but they also experience PMS. It is one more reason for them to isolate themselves from reality’s problems. Here are some activities that women can enjoy in their she sheds.

  • Gardening

A she shed is located in the garden shed in the backyard. One of the reasons women hang out there is because of their gardening activities. They have their tools and garden supplies in the shed, which is why they spend most of their time in the shed when gardening. This instance is probably the reason why women invented the term she shed.

  • Decorating

If you go online and search for “she sheds,” you would find pictures of the most unique and gorgeous she sheds. Women love to decorate things, and she sheds are not an exception. I like how creative they can be with their beloved spaces. It is like a realistically sized dollhouse that girls always wanted when they were young. Some she sheds are even inspired by movies like Snow White and Lord of the Rings.

  • Wine tasting

Some girls want to relax and unwind after a long day at work or doing errands with the kids. A she shed is an ideal place to be alone or have wine parties with friends. They can sip a little wine and enjoy a little friendly gossip.

  • Yoga

The scenery of being in a garden can be the best place for meditation. Women can relax and let the negative spirits out of their bodies through a little session of yoga. They can take a breath of fresh air while meditating and refresh for another day and week of duties and responsibilities.

  • Breastfeeding in peace

A new mom can take advantage of the peacefulness of a garden she shed. She can use her shed as her private place to breastfeed her newborn child in peace. She could also do it in the room, but a she shed would be more relaxing. Plus, it gives the new mom and the baby quality time.

  • Writing a novel

Women with day jobs sometimes cannot find the time or place to finish a book or short story they are working on. A she shed can be a place to inspire creativity and focus. With a private spot, there are no distractions that can help her finish writing the novel. Maybe one day, she can even quit her job and focus on becoming a full-time writer.

  • Painting

Just like writing, a she shed can be used for art as well. The ambiance of a she shed can help people be more artistic. A person’s imagination can be triggered when left alone in a space that is intended for the purpose. The plants in the garden can be very inspiring, and people can even paint them.

MAN CAVE SIZES

The ideal size of your man cave depends on what you are planning to do with it. There is no such thing as a man cave that is too small or too big. The ideal man cave size depends on you and the activities you plan on doing once you have a man cave. It is all about the purpose. Reading, writing, watching movies, and drinking alone does not require much space. If you plan to have a lot of company, you will need the extra space so that you and your friends can be comfortable. If your small space for doing activities, it might add more stress instead of lessening it. Remember, the goal is to destress and refresh.

MAN CAVE ON A BUDGET

  • DIY can save you MON-EY

Hiring professionals to do any remodeling will cost you a lot of money with their labor and fees. If you are on a tight budget, consider doing the projects yourself. However, if you are not experienced, you might spend a lot more on materials. Make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew.

CONCLUSION

I want to remind you of a couple of things before we part ways. First, masculinity nowadays is a subjective construct. Anything you decorative your man cave with will say so much about what kind of a person you are, but it won’t make you less of a man, so don’t let other people judge you based on what decorations you want for your man cave. Secondly, if your spouse wants to know what you spend your money on, tell them. Man caves are supposed to be good for relationships, not break them with deception. Lastly, whatever you do, always choose to have fun, and spend time with friends and family. I hope this article filled your mind with fun ideas on decorating your man cave! Happy decorating!
