One of the new buzz terms for 2012/13 was the man cave and not just for men with lots of children wanting time out, but for single men or newly married men wanting a masculine room to share with mates while watching a sports event.
It becomes the private sanctuary that needs to be totally masculine and decorated as such. So who then does the decorating and where in the house does this room fit?
For many, it is a basement or garage or, if lucky, a well built shed away from the house.
Decorating is the key to making this room work and, ladies, it has to be their choice as it is not our room but theirs!
Earthy dark tones and sleek furniture, sporting team memorabilia and a few comfy chairs start the look and feel.
A billiard table or games area even an outdoor basketball hoop brings the room together.
A well placed bar with smart wooden features and display shelves will finish the look along with a wall mounted TV and you have the room your partner will be happy to retire to hopefully after the dishes are done!
