What makes the ultimate Man Cave?

Are you looking for Man Shed ideas? Do you need some Man Cave inspiration? What makes the best Man Shed?

Man caves come in all shapes and sizes. We all understand that chaps need a bit of personal space to do their man-things. Man caves are great for doing manly activities like collecting beer mats, pursuing hobbies, cleaning tools, watching TV, or playing sports.

As we all know, a manly retreat does not mean “I never want to see my family again.” "I'll take a break, do my own thing, and when I return, I'll be happier and more pleasant to be with."

Escape the house with a designer shed in the garden, it's the obvious solution. Let us tailor-make a man shed for whatever kind of caveman you are…

Become a man cave designer

Don't sit in an old garden shed. Use the Garden Affairs man cave garden building configurators to design the perfect man cave for you.

Take inspiration for man cave ideas from our customer galleries. Choose the size, shape and style of man cave that suits you. From Rustic man cave to modern contemporary man cave, we will have a solution for you.

 …The sportsman?

Your man cave should have a well-equipped games room. It should be able to handle any game you want, such as a dartboard or golf simulator.

We can design a robust sports man cave log cabin around your favourite pastime, with seating for spectators. You could create special storage for equipment for other favourite sports, like wetsuits, skis or sailing gear. Your trophy collection must of course take pride in the man cave and be central to the décor.

Practice your swing anytime with an indoor golf practice simulator. Select your virtual golf course and never have to worry about being caught out in the rain.

No matter how hard you hit the balls our solid wooden walls will take the impact of the occasional stray ball.

…The Lay-Z-Boy kind?

If you’re more of an armchair sportsman, why not set yourself up with a big TV on the wall? Invest in some luxury recliner seating and see how popular you are with your mates on Cup Final day. Add a games console and Wi-Fi booster for competitive gameplay evenings. Patio doors and outdoor decking mean post-match punditry can carry on over a barbecue.

…The Socialist?

Sometimes we just need a place to meet our mates. Set up the poker table and enjoy a game of cards with pals. Telling jokes and laughing with your buddies over a few pints. If you haven't got a local create your own garden pub with a home bar.

Add optics on the wall and a wine cellar below. Keep the beers cool with an under-counter fridge. Stand behind your bar and call the last orders when you have had enough.

Invest in some man cave furniture and signage on the wall to create the perfect sports bar. Whether it's the World Cup or the Euros invite your mates around for the big game.

…The arty-crafty kind?

One client of ours wanted a man cave to enjoy his interest in building model planes. Another turned a painting hobby into a profitable side line business. Your prized tools deserve spaces designed for the job, with the right tool storage, workbenches, lighting, and display areas.

…The musical kind?

Linea Man Caves have double-glazed windows and doors, and thick insulated walls which are great for dampening sound. If your family doesn't enjoy the music you listen to, having a man cave can be a great option. It provides a space where you can hang out with friends and enjoy playing music without any interference.

With multi-point locking as standard, your precious equipment is as safe as houses in your rock-solid mancave.

…The work from home kind?

A garden office workspace does not have to be boring. Make your garden office man cave a fun space. Invest in man cave décor with leather seating and an executive desk.

A sound system for workday tunes and night-time rocking. Mount a TV on the wall to use as a computer monitor or for catching up on the latest sports news.

Make space for cool artwork and don't forget a coffee machine or water cooler.

…Or the collector kind?

Your lifetime’s collection merits a special space to dedicate time to restoration, storage, displaying and enjoying them. Why have beautiful things in boxes under the bed when they could have their own built-in shelving or display cases?

Insulated man caves are great for both working on and storing precious automotive treasures. A timber workshop is a great choice for classic cars and bikes as timber breathes which protects from dampness and rust.

Whatever sort of man you might be, your personal space is important.
