Reasons To Have A Man Cave
So the original cave men lived in quite sophisticated spaces, not very cave like at all. Although in the middle ages things moved on tenants could probably be more of a problem for landlords and had a smaller more peasant like space to live in. We're sure that modern man will want his man cave free of any animal damage and so may well appreciate a tin sign.
'Scientists found that the cave man shelter was divided into three levels. The top was full of animal bones, suggesting it was a food-prep area where animals were butchered. The middle level was more of a living space, with a fire pit toward the back. And the bottom was a sort of staging area, with a workshop toward the front where stone tools were evidently made, and perhaps stored, ready for hunting forays'.
Modern man has now found a new sanctuary in his man cave or personal space dedicated to hobbies, fun times, collections and areas to just chill out and be himself for a while without outside distractions and interruptions.
With our increasingly fast paced lifestyle impinging on out time and energy more and more it's no surprise that men are taking refuge in their man caves.
Personalising the space is one of the most important jobs when creating the ideal man cave, beginning with a sign to differentiate the space, claiming it as yours and yours alone as the man of the house.
There are many other ways to enjoy a great man cave, from chilling with your favourite beer to just enjoying spending time doing the things you love.
Think about having a great bottle opener in there and your favourite tipple. A bit of rustic furniture and maybe if its reminiscent of a wine cellar a few bar accessories.
Adorn your space with plaques on the wall and quirky memorabilia, from railway signs, garage plaques or just a funny sign that will give you and your mates a good laugh.
We love our table footie, but that's a story for another time.
