More About Man Caves
In a world of increasing uncertainty and challenges to their individuality, an increasing number of men are finding the best way to deal with the pressure of modern society is to go back to the cave. One of the hottest trends in domestic reconfiguration is the concept of the "Man Cave" - a designated space in or around the home where a man can seek refuge from worldly or domestic distractions and immerse himself in personal indulgence.
For some, it's a simple retreat outfitted with a second-hand television and a worn out sofa in the garage. It's a place men can gather to smoke cigars, watch football and drink beer without being a burden on traditional domestic tranquility. Others seek a designated location in which they can surround themselves with types of prized possessions most women don't understand and won't allow to be showcased in their homes. Men understand prized possessions like sports memorabilia, a vintage slot car setup or a vintage collection of Gas Station Memorabilia. Thus a compromise is reached. Women get full rights to domestic property, including home and yard, in exchange for a fortress of solitude where the man of the house can temporarily escape his wife, her friends, his kids and anyone determined not to be cave-worthy.
While any self-contained enclosure can be designated as Man Cave, the preferred space should be separate and distinct from traditional living space. A spare bedroom can do in a pinch, but a detached garage is better. A prefabricated building constructed a distance from the house is better still. Whatever space is designated for your Man Cave, you'll want to address basic issues of comfort and security. As on man puts it, "A man cave is a popular place for guys to come over and watch football. They'd rather get together at my place than deal with their wives or girlfriends complaining about us hanging out."
Not all Man Caves are low rent districts with meager surroundings and second-hand furnishings. Celebrities and the wealthy have embraced the concept - investigating significantly in custom construction and accessories to outfit their luxury Man Caves. "Having a specific theme that carries through the entire space is a good way to reflect the personality of the cave dweller," said H. J. Nick of the Scottsdale Art Factory. "Sports themes like football, baseball and NASCAR are particularly popular." The top addition to upscale Man Caves is a billiards table. Poker tables, bars, jukeboxes, foosball tables, shuffleboard, ping pong tables, air hockey, pin ball and game systems are popular add-ons as well. The price range for upscale recreation can be significant. While some well heeled Man Cave dwellers opt for immediate gratification and order a custom prefabricated man cave complete with their theme and collection from artfactory.com, most approach the furnishing of their man space as a long-term project - starting off with the basics and adding additional elements over time. But Man Caves do not have to be large, elaborate or expensive to fulfill their raison d'etre. The function of the Man Cave is a haven of retreat - a not-so-secret place to get away to recharge the batteries, gather with like-minded friends or temporarily escape worrisome or bothersome distractions.
