All us blokes deserve to a little space in the house, that we can call our own, so here are our simple tips on turning any space into an awesome male space that you can unwind, chill and indulge yourself.
No man cave is a complete without some miniature sized sports games to give it that manly, athletic vibe. So why not consider hanging up a miniature basketball hoop, or set up a football table. Depending on what your favourite sports are, jump online and see what minature versions you can have fitted out in your man space. Look for the best foosball tables, the coolest electrical pitt and putt machines and the sturdies basketball hoops and then think about the areas that you could best place them around the room, without driving the others in your house, or even your neighbours, completely crazy.

With all that miniature sport you are surely going to build up quite a thirst. So why not consider decking out your own private bar for you and your buddies to hang out at after a long hard, day at work. Creating a bar, in a room in your house, doesn’t have to cost the earth and can even be made from cheap (sometimes free, if you can find them from markets after they are closing up) wooden pallets. Look up a couple of easy to follow DIY videos and see if you think you’d be up to the task of building your very own bar area to enjoy a couple of chilled beers at the end of the day.
