Contrary to popular belief, sheds are not just for storing garden tools and equipment! They can also be transformed to give you a place where you can enjoy your hobbies or provide you with extra living space. Case in point: man caves. If you’re looking for a space of your own, consider converting your shed into a man cave. Here’s what you should know about man caves made out of sheds and how you can build one.
1. Come Up With A Design
One of the things you need to consider first is the design of your man cave. Before you get started, check out books, magazines, or the internet for design inspirations. Or if you know an architect or interior designer, you could always ask them to help you come up with a design for your man cave.
2. Clean The Shed
Once you have chosen a design, the next step is to prep the shed. You can start by cleaning the space and removing all unwanted items inside. Keep in mind that you’ll need a blank canvass for your project, so it’s important to put in the necessary work to achieve your desired results.
3. Insulate And Paint
To avoid huge utility bills in the future, ensure that your man cave shed has proper insulation. Put up insulation rolls in the shed to keep electricity costs down, then apply a fresh coat of paint to give the space a more inviting vibe.
4. Install Lighting And Flooring
Setting up appropriate lighting can go a long way towards transforming an ordinary shed into a bona fide man cave. Choose from downlights, lamps or spotlights, depending on the look you want for the space, and get rid of the concrete floor! Wood, polished concrete are great options or even carpet if it suits your design.
5. Furnish It
The last step to building your dream man cave is to furnish it. Choose the furniture pieces that match your style and personality, then add gadgets and appliances such as a TV, stereo, bar fridge, pool table and gaming console.Depending on how many electrical appliances you have, you may need extra sockets installed. It’s also a good idea to review your security and add extra locks and window grills if necessary.
