Father's Day is this Sunday, so now is the perfect time to get your dad a gift that he is really going to enjoy – his own personal space where he can escape from the world. While some might be opposed to the idea of a so-called "man cave," your dad will likely enjoy having an area of the house that is just for him, where he can relax and unwind after a long day at work. You can create this spot in just a few days without having to break the bank, as long as you plan and budget everything out ahead of time.
Here are a few tips for creating a man cave for your dad this Father's Day:
- Comfort is key: "It's not really about how it looks; it's more about how it feels," interior designer Kelly Nelson tells Philly.com. Make sure that the man cave is as comfortable as possible for your dad.
- It should be accessible to guests: More than likely, your father will want to have friends of his over in this spot from time to time. That is why it is so important to put the man cave in a place that all guests can easily get to without having to walk through a bedroom or other personal space. Basements and attics are the most popular choices.
- Make sure it reflects his interests: While you are creating the space, it is important for you to remember that it should be all about him. Make sure that you know who you are designing for so that you can make sure that it displays all of the various activities and hobbies that he enjoys. The man cave should be defined entirely by your father.
