Ah, NFL playoff season. It’s the time of year when football fans across the nation share two common longings: one, to see their favorite team advance to the Super Bowl. Two: a super cool room to enjoy the game in comfort and style.
Yes, we’re talking about the Man Cave. Sure, you can call the Man Cave anything (and previous generations did!) Call the space a den, a family room, or even a finished garage. The point is to have a space in your home for relaxation, entertainment, and enjoyment. The essential elements: a well-built attractive space for your home theater system, lots of comfortable seating, a bar or island for snacks and drinks – perhaps with a built in fridge.
Does this all sound like a ridiculous indulgence? Not so, says Ashland home renovation experts. Our society has gone through tremendous changes in the past few years. People are spending more time at home. Going to the sports bar to watch the big game might be fun – but it’s also very expensive. And it turns out that entertaining your best buds at your own place can be a lot more fun than dealing with the random mix of drunken strangers you can encounter on any random Monday night.
If your home is your largest investment, shouldn’t it pay dividends of joy?
Talk to your Ashland building contractor about creating your Man Cave. This may mean remodeling an existing space in your home to better suit your family’s needs: when the kids have outgrown the playroom, what are you going to do with the space? Another option is to finish the basement. Don’t dismiss the idea until you’ve talked to your Ashland home renovation specialist: if you’re worried that the basement is too dark, there are innovations including expanded entrances and porticos that can provide great natural light!
