Considering creating a Man Cave? Are you looking to claim the room over the garage? Maybe you’ve already created your Man Cave, but it’s just not cool enough…here are 3 things that will make it cool and comfortable!
Hi guys! Congratulations! You scored! You claimed your space in the house– the room that will house you in your free time and hold all your boxed stuff. If you’re married, it’s likely the stuff you could never freely enjoy inside your home– the stuff that’s accumulating in the basement. This room is your man cave. Whether your new space is that room over the garage, a space in the unfinished basement, in the garage, or that room that’s that nobody ever uses because it’s too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter–it does not matter because it’s now yours!
Before you order the big screen TV and the surround sound- here are a few things to consider that will ensure you get the most use and enjoyment of your room.
First– Determine the primary use of the room. Will you be listening to music, watching sports, inviting the guys over? Will these activities create noise that will disrupt the rest of the household? If so, consider speaking to a professional about how to best sound proof the room because you do want to enjoy it peacefully.
Second– What’s your style? Should you go with a decorated space that is reminiscent of your favorite sports theme? If so, try painting the walls one of your team’s colors and add a contrasting, painted, chunky stripe of the other color.
For a few thinking outside of the box ideas, be sure to check out the “Essentials For Your DIY Man Cave” at Brojects.tv. In this post, these guys provide inspiring ideas for the bar, seating, TV game tables, and displaying your sports memorabilia.
Third– Don’t forget about comfort! And I’m not talking about the comfort of the lounger chairs. I’m talking about the temperature and comfort of the room. For many with the desire to create a man cave, the dream gets shut down when looking for heating and cooling solutions. The hassle of adding ductwork to their existing home’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) system typically involves removing walls, building ductwork, and adding drywall to conceal the ductwork–plus ductwork takes up space. However, the solution to cooling this room is really quite simple and does not require ductwork. Simply by using a ductless heating and cooling system, your comfort can be achieved easily in your man cave.
Ductless heating and cooling systems are being used and installed everyday for this type of room renovation. The Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Mini-Split System is the perfect solution for heating and cooling this space. Not only are the Mitsubishi systems America’s No. 1 selling brand of ductless cooling and heating systems, they are used by Nicole Curtis on the popular HGTV show “Rehab Addict.” Check out this show where Nicole explains why the mini-split is the perfect solution when you have an existing structure and you don’t want to go through the process of taking out walls and installing ductwork.

So break out the boxes from storage and claim your space for building your man cave! You’ve got 3 great tips that will ensure you have a cool and comfortable man cave! Beware, once the others see what you created they are going to want in!
