It could just be the abundance of space here in Darwin. Or a case of generous expendable incomes and free time. Or a heightened sense of primal territorial pride and a yearning for our hands-on, built-to-last roots in an increasingly disposable plastic world.
Whatever it is, we seem to have more than our fair share of outstanding mancaves here in Australia – and this week we’re glad to bring you nine of the best:
Maybe you’re a career oriented man who needs a space to completely decompress after an intense day?
Or are you a family man, maybe a stay-at-home Dad who gives every last minute of your energy to others, maybe teetering on the edge of all encompassing duties and desperately in need of time out?
Maybe you’ve just moved in with a partner and are keen to hang on to a masculine vibe that’s not right to run through the whole house?
You need a man cave
The term ‘man cave’ isn’t a new one, and the idea and intent behind it remains the same – to give men that little play room they crave for their inner man-child.
In the past, men have had the garage, the basement or even the garden shed as their escape. What is new however, is the trend towards the inclusion of an actual room within a home, rather than being relegated to some unused, undecorated area. Welcome to the new Man Cave – part of the home rather than a separate mantuary, usually outside.
“Men have always had the garage
and the shed – but now man caves
are moving inside”
The Point of a Man Cave
The recognition that a man retreat is a functional, deserving part of the home is a milestone in the relationship between us and our interiors. Making a room that’s focused on you and your interests may sound selfish, indulgent even. But part of modern living means being honest about your needs, and if you enjoy solitary time, a space in your home is a better option than always having to go out of the house to enjoy the things you like to do.
Our homes are an extension of ourselves – the Man Cave is no different.
