If you’re looking for a place to escape from your family or have some time to yourself, then converting your garage into a man cave is the perfect solution. This article will give you ten steps on how to transform your garage into a comfortable and relaxing space so that you can get away from it all!
1. Clear Out The Garage
Consider the space and what you want to use it. Remove any items from the garage that are not being used, especially those junks you just stored on them. This will allow more room for you to create the man cave of your dreams and have a clear view of the space you will use. This will also indicate that you’re serious about converting your garage into something that will be used. Check for any damage on the roof or walls of the garage to prevent it from getting worst in the future, especially if there is water leakage during rain season.
2. Clean Up The Garage
Clear out as much space as possible, and clean up any messes that remain. Sweep or vacuum the floor to clear dust and other particles before starting your new project. This will help ensure that you won’t get dirty or dusty while working.
Once the flooring is in, make sure to keep it clean and sweep up any dirt brought in by your shoes daily. If there are stains on the concrete surface of the garage, scrub them away with soap and water before applying sealer onto it. You can also use a concrete color or paint to enhance the appearance of your garage.
3. Paint It And Decorate It
Once the garage is thoroughly cleaned, paint the walls with an accent color to create a masculine feel. Then, if you want to add even more personality, go ahead and decorate the walls with your favorite sports team’s logo or a poster of your favorite band. You can also add some artwork to the walls to make them more unique. Also, add lighting fixtures for ambiance and safety.
4. Install A New Flooring
Add a new flooring, such as wood or ceramic tile, to make it feel like a whole new room or install new flooring that will withstand any spills or messes, such as cork tile. You can also put in an area rug to cover the floor and add even more personality.
5. Add A TV, Couch, Or Comfortable Chair
You can add a TV to the garage so you won’t miss out on any of your favorite sports while working or chilling in the garage. You could also install comfortable seating, such as couches or chairs for lounging around during parties and get-togethers with friends to enjoy. You can go all out with recliners or settle for simple bean bag chairs – whatever your heart desires! If there is room in your budget, buying a new couch or recliner is a great idea. Unfortunately, some homeowners decide to leave the comfort and instead hang hammocks from the ceiling for a fun, laid-back feel in their man cave.
6. Add An Entertainment Center
Adding a TV is not enough to complete the man cave. You’ll also need to add an entertainment center so you can store all of your electronics, such as DVD players and video game consoles, in one place for easy access. You can find entertainment centers in a variety of styles to fit your unique tastes and garage décor.
7. Install A Bar
No man cave will be complete without a bar. You don’t have to install an actual bar, but simply having cabinets filled with drinks like soft drinks, juice, or beer and the glassware is just as good! If you love to cook, why not install a mini-fridge under the bar, so your drinks are super cold and easily accessible without going back to the main house.
8. Put In Cabinets For Storage
You can add cabinets onto the walls for more storage space or cubbies on top shelves that you can use to store things like party supplies, games, tools, and even alcohol if it’s allowed where you live. Also, so you can keep things like your baseball trophies and other memorabilia that might have been stored in the garage.
9. Buy A Pool Table
If you have the budget to spare, buy a pool table. It’s great for parties and can also double as an additional desk or work surface if your home office happens to be in the garage. It can also be a great place to work on your game.
