Everyone needs to have a space in their home where they can kick back and relax. Creating a man cave for your home is a great way to add personality to your space and gives you a place where you can de-stress. Most man caves are done in the basement or in a garage, but anything goes when it comes to interior décor. If you don’t have enough space in your home for a man cave, why don’t you turn a bathroom into the perfect relaxation space? Here are some tips that will help you turn a drab bathroom into a fabulous, but masculine, man cave.
A little paint goes a long way:
The first step to turning your bathroom into a testosterone-filled haven is to whip out a can of paint. Changing the color on the walls is super simple to do, but the result is quite dramatic. When it comes to picking a paint color for your man cave, anything goes. If you want the space to look tough and manly, pick darker colors like cobalt blue or deep red. If you like sports, you can always paint the walls with your favorite team colors.
Use your creativity:
The beauty of designing a man cave is that you can use your creativity to build a space that feels like you. Since bathrooms tend to be small, compact spaces, you really need to think outside of the box so you can use every square inch of space to your advantage. For example, instead of a traditional pedestal sink cabinet, you can install a Craftsman tool cabinet for all of your hand washing needs.
Adding a few gadgets to your man cave can really make it epic. One thing you can add to your space is a smart toilet. Smart toilets are awesome because they come with a boatload of features. One of the best things about these gadgets is the fact that they come with heated seats so you can be comfortable when nature calls. They also have a self-cleaning nozzle that removes germs and a nightlight bidet, not sure why you need a night light there – but hey, why not! Another awesome gadget for your bathroom is a mirrored TV. A man cave isn’t complete without a television; where else would you watch sports? But TVs in the bathroom take up room, so why not double down and combine your TV and your vanity? These contraptions actually look like a mirror, but in reality, they are fully functioning televisions so you can shave and catch all the highlights from last night’s game. In order for either product to work you will need TV and internet otherwise you have just purchased a really expensive mirror and TV.
The little touches:
Adding some personality to the door of the bathroom can help brighten the space. To do this, you can paint the door red, blue or any other attention-grabbing color and place a sign that says ‘you’re now entering the man cave.’ Once you’re in there, every man cave needs a mini-fridge – it’s a fact of life. You can stock your mini-fridge with the works: a few beers, snacks, soda, bacon and so on. Let’s face it, sometimes you get hungry and need to refuel. And if the man of the house has an iPad or iPod, there are plenty of products that will integrate the device, like a toilet paper dispenser.
Designing a man cave is a fun experience. Hopefully, with the help of these tips, you’ll be able to turn your boring bathroom into a wonderful haven.
