Are you living your best single life in Singapore? Got a home, a good job, and some good old friends? Then you’ll love the concept of designing your entire home like a man-cave. The rugged appeal of this theme for single men is universal because it caters to all their hobbies while keeping the overall ambiance simple and manageable. Let’s take a look at 5 ways your small home can be transformed into the perfect man-cave:
1. Keep your options open
Before setting up a layout, remember one thing: you need to design both public and semi-public spaces. The former is where you spend time with and entertain your friends. It could be the dining area or even a gaming room. The challenge is to design enough sitting space for everyone. Therefore, keep the furniture simple and avoid unnecessary décor no matter what!
2. Materials matter a lot
The basic essence of the man-cave theme is to emulate a masculine feel in the space while keeping things stylish and sophisticated at the same time. You can do so by structuring the materials just right. Leather couch is an absolute must and you can complement its presence with the help of other complementing materials such as matt laminates in dark, charismatic hues, stone surfaces, and distressed finishes.
3. Overall styling
The overall styling of your man-cave concept must be kept simple, minimal, and absolutely modern. Try not to totally enclose the semi-public spaces such as the kitchen and the office completely. Keep them open and transparent at the very least. Design in clean lines and finish with eye-catching, fuss-free materials. You can even add some personality by choosing some great light fixtures!
4. How to accent?
Adding accents in a man-cave style home can be challenging because you have to stay away from feminine influences. Therefore, you must find ruggedly modern accent chairs, old-school area rugs with lots of personality, and even end/coffee tables that speak volumes in character in order to accent such a theme!
5. Customize personal spaces
The emphasis on personal space in a man-cave is very hardcore. But the best part is that you have full liberty to customize these spaces as much as you need/want. Your bedroom can also be your office, and the study room can also be an entertainment area. Think out of the box to create the most unique spaces!
