5 Reasons Why You NEED a Mancave

Mancave Games ROOM

As a man, you need time and space that’s exclusively for you – that’s where the mancave comes in. Whether it’s your garage, shed, spare room or a dedicated garden room, this space is way more important than you (or your partner) might think. If you don’t have one (yet), here’s 5 reasons why you should make it a priority…

Mancaves Help by Reducing stress

Let’s face it, life can be really stressful. Men can be weighed down by all the demands of trying to provide for the family, build a career, spend time with the kids and make their relationship work. With no healthy outlet, stress can build up and eventually lead to health problems. A mancave provides a place to relax and unwind, getting away from all the external pressures for a while. Here, you can rest and process your emotions, so they don’t build up into the anger and resentment that so often puts a strain on relationships.

Expressing your individuality

Without wanting to stereotype, most people would agree that women tend to have the greater say over how the house looks, the décor and even the use of space. Many men go along with this because they simply don’t care as much as she does and that’s OK, but a mancave can give you that little bit of space to have exactly as you want it, a canvas on which to express your individuality. Decorate it how you want. Furnish it how you want. Use it how you want. Heaven.


Me time

Everyone needs me time. It helps us to connect with ourselves in a way that we just can’t when we are around other people, bogged down by the endless noise and input of our busy lives. A mancave provides a space for solitude where you can get to know yourself and reflect on your life goals. We’re often so busy meeting the demands of others or society that we rarely take the time to consider what we really want in life.

Indulge in your hobbies with a mancave

Taking the time to indulge in your hobbies can have significant benefits on your wellbeing. Your quality of life is improved when you have time and space to do something that’s just for your own enjoyment. When we have kids, they take over the house with all their stuff and you spend a great deal of time meeting their needs. There’s often no space left for the things you might have enjoyed in the past like fitness, art or gaming. You need to reclaim some space and a mancave does just this.

Improve your family life with a mancave

Although you might have a hard time persuading them at first, your partner will thank you for getting a mancave. Your family life will be drastically improved due to all the reasons above. When you take time out for yourself, you reduce your stress levels, manage your emotions better and improve your quality of life. As a result, when you emerge from your mancave, you will have the energy to spend real quality time with your family. Everyone’s a winner.
