“A room, space, corner or area of a dwelling that is specifically reserved for a male person to be in a solitary condition, away from the rest of the household in order to work, play, involve himself in certain hobbies, activities without interruption. This area is usually decorated by the male that uses it without interference from any female influence.”
Ask yourself: Would the Most Interesting Man in the World want to hang out in your basement?
If your answer is no, here are 5 ideas to transform your basement into the ultimate man cave:
1) Media Room
This is not an entertainment center. That is a black particle board nightmare you had in college. A Media Room is an entire room focused on a REALLY LARGE TV. The TV needs to be at just the right height and placement. And for the love of all that is good in the world, don’t let us see cords. Castle Builds can construct a Media Room for you where your TV, DVD player, game stations and speakers all have their rightful place.
2) MANLY shower
Drinking adult beverages and swearing at the TV can work up a sweat. Do you really want to go upstairs and lather up using all of the foo foo lotions in the bathroom? Why not install a shower in your basement? Then if you are messy from yardwork or home repairs (this is how you sell it to her) you won’t dirty up her shower.
3) Two tiered bar
Castle Builds can construct a bar that fits your exact specifications. A two tiered bar can hide messes from those at eye view and breaks up the counter space. Besides the TV, everyone will gather at your bar, so making it a comfortable, functional piece is our goal.
While your bar is good for storing liquor, don’t forget about beer storage. Castle Builds can customize a space to house the kegerator to meet the beverage needs of you and your guests.
5) Wood or concrete flooring
The installation of wood or concrete flooring is essential to your man cave. Both surfaces are durable, easier to clean than carpet, and don’t harbor dirt and pollen. Concrete is water resistant and absorbs heat, is a greener choice, inhibits mold and mildew, and contains no potentially harmful VOCs. Wood is attractive to future buyers, looks sharp, comes in lots of varieties, and provides better acoustics than concrete.
Think you’ll miss carpet? Put on your man cave moccasins and deal with it.
