Google’s definition: A room or other part of a home used by a man as a place to relax and pursue hobbies away from the rest of the family.

If you’re visiting this site to look for ideas for your own man cave or if you’re visiting for gift ideas for the man in your life then we’ve got you covered.

The question on your lips will be ‘What is a man cave?’

Well, as described above, it is a space where a man can let his creative juices flow without the interference of a girlfriend, wife, mother or child.

It is a safe haven that allows a man to pursue a hobby or project on his own out the way of anyone and everyone else.

People often take a man cave to heart, but i’m here to tell you it is not personal at all. Your husband, boyfriend or son doesn’t need space from you, they need space from everyone. The world gets too much sometimes and us men need a space to hide away and focus on something that means nothing to anyone else.

The best thing about a man cave is the fact that it is designed, built and decorated by the man in question. It is not truly a man cave if the man has had help from a significant other, in my opinion.

This is why it is vitally important that as a significant other, you let the man in question do what he needs to do. Even if it goes against every colourway your house has to offer. Let the man do his thing.

I’ve renovated a whole house with my current girlfriend, and believe me when I say us men don’t get a word in edgeways when it comes to interior design, colour, furniture and accessories. We’re just there as labourers to help you get into the paint tin and reach hard to reach places…

This is why this site exists, this is a space where men can investigate further and design their room exactly how they want to. If you’re reading this and you want to contribute towards the man cave then your man in question will definitely appreciate it, just don’t tell him what to do with it or where to put it…

So there you have it, the man cave is a space where a man can be a free man again for the short amount of time he is in there. It’s not an escape from you, it’s an escape from everything. A safe haven to pursue projects and hobbies that are often frowned upon when mentioned in any other area of the house.

So men, scour this site, design your man cave and create the space you’ve always wanted in your home. Ladies by all means contribute, but please let the man do what the man needs to do.

until next time.
