What is a 'Man Cave'?

Man-cave, noun Informal: a room or space (as in a basement or attic) designed accordingly to the taste of the man of the house to be used as his personal area for hobbies and leisure activities.  First known use of MAN CAVE:  1992.

The ‘Man Cave’ has become a common term used to describe a room to get-away from everyday stresses.  The common structure of a man cave stays fairly consistent using natural materials like stone and wood.  Keep in mind there are certain requirements that inherently create the perfect Man-Cave room.

I think the very first rule is that women aren’t allowed to decorate. So gentlemen listen to me when I say Granite and Quartz on the bar area provides the stone that gives the room a natural awareness of a true cave atmosphere.  And you know you love the woodsy outdoors so why not bring
some wood in the room.  That can be done with a fireplace, flooring, ceiling, walls, even lamps and end tables.

My brother-in-law prefers the football theme.  The basement has become his retreat with a granite bar and seating area that overlooks the 70” screen for everyone’s viewing pleasure.  He has created a room, complete with striped football turf, that UGA would be proud to play ball on. Beer themed neon signs at the bar and UGA banners serve as a backdrop behind the screen.  In addition, the d├ęcor includes the Wide Mouth Bass and other fishing trophies that he proudly displays among his NFL memorabilia.  The ‘Man Cave’ bath includes a Craftsman tool box modified for the sink and don’t forget the magazine rack.

Many of the caves I have had the pleasure to visit all include, at a minimum: a TV, bar fridge, table for sharing the Doritos and wings, and a desk (to inspire the idea that they may actually work for a living).  Whatever you decide to include should be of your choosing and there are no rules for decorating your very own ‘Man Cave’.
