How to Create the Ultimate Man Cave

We’ve already talked about creating a she shed, so now it is the fellas’ turn with a man cave. A man cave is an area where the guys can kick back, relax and do all the things guys do. There are hundreds of different ideas and ways to create a man cave. It can be super overwhelming while you are trying to find the right one for you. That is why we made this guide on how to create the ultimate man cave. 

Find Your Location

The first thing you need to do when setting up a man cave is to find the location. Is it going to be in a basement, a spare room, a shed or another free area in your home? Remember this area is just for you, and you are going to want to make sure there is enough room for everything that you want to go into it. Once you decide on the area with your significant other, it is time to get to work. 

Pick a Theme or Hobby

Before you start renovating or decorating your man cave, you need to come up with a theme or hobby. Many guys choose sports, hunting, video games, movies, alcohol and the great outdoors as the theme of their room. However, it is whatever you want it to be. You can revolve it around a specific hobby as well. Picking a theme will make it easier when it comes to decorating and deciding what goes into the room.


Now that you have the location and the theme, it is time to get to work. The first step in your renovation project is to paint the room. There are many colors for you to choose from, so do not be afraid to play around with paint colors. And once you are ready to paint, we have a guide on how to prep or you can always call us to come to get the job done. We use the highest grade of Sherman Williams paint, so the color of your walls lasts a long time. 

Make Repairs

Sometimes as you are working on a room, you may notice a few repairs that need to be complete. You want to make sure the room is safe and ready to use once you finish renovating it. For all your home interior and exterior repairs, we can help you. We have a team of experienced handymen who know how to fix almost everything in your home and are ready to answer any questions you have. 

Add New Flooring

If you want to have some wow factor in your man cave, think about adding new floors. This can transform a room completely. From carpet, laminate, luxury vinyl, hardwood and tile, there are so many styles, textures and colors for you to choose from. We have a wide selection of every category and can help you install and dispose of your old flooring. And if you have hardwood floors, we can give them a refresh with hardwood floor refinishing


The last step in creating the ultimate man cave is to decorate. This is where you follow the theme or hobby you picked out to get the room ready to go. There are many places you can find cool decorations like home department stores or online. If you are looking for unique, handmade or one of a kind pieces, check out Etsy, garage sales, flea markets and antique stores. 

With all the tips above, we hope you can create the coolest man cave ever. If you need help with any other home renovation, improvements or repairs, shoot Valor Home Services a message today.
