Whether it’s an office, a nursery or a man cave having one’s own personal space is important for the psychological state for everyone. Space is important for regulating emotions and in fact can positively affect one’s emotional well being. Decorating a space yourself for yourself makes one feel like the space is truly theirs and therefore it important for emotional well being as well.
Let’s face it; guys needs are most likely not being met in other areas of the home due to the lady of the home being the main decorator. Men need their own space to serve a basic psychological function; reading car magazines, playing games, watching sports, or listening to loud music. No matter what his personal needs are, a man cave should have no compromise and should solely be a space that satisfies and regulates the man’s emotional needs.
There has been a rise in the use and design of man caves. Although men might not be aware of the space fulfilling their emotional needs, they find a space of their own to be a place to get away; almost like the childhood days of tree houses that was all theirs. From decorating the walls of the tree house with pages out of a magazine to finding photos of other man caves, men have inspiration all around them that is just waiting to come out into a space that is truly all theirs.
Men work hard so they should be able to play hard. A man cave is a perfect way for a man to enjoy his home life along with providing a positive emotional influence!
