Basement Man Cave

Everyone needs a space to call their own. While your home is a great place for your family to come together, it’s also a good idea to have a room to yourself where you can do what you want. Men, let’s face it; between your wives and kids, your house is going to be either cute or filled with kids toys. But what about a space for you? A place where a man can be a man. That’s why you need a man cave.

What is a Man Cave?

A man cave is an extra room in your house where men can get together, turn on the TV, have a few beers, and just relax without coasters and cartoons.

Basement man caves are growing in popularity as more and more men are finding them a nice way to find refuge from work and family.

Most people who are building a man cave find the basement to be the best place because it’s an extra room that many homes already have.

 How to Start Your Man Cave

Wondering how to build your man cave in the basement? First, decide on whether you’re going to use your existing space or completely renovate the room to create a truly custom space.

If you’re renovating the area to build your man cave, you’ll need to waterproof your basement first. The best man cave is no good if it fills with water like an actual cave. Waterproofing is easy with Sani-Tred and can protect your basement man cave permanently.
