An unused garage is the perfect space for custom built ultimate garage man cave. It not only provides a place for you to relax, but to unwind after a long day. In addition, your garage can easily be transformed into a man cave and just as easily be converted back if the need ever arises. Our guide will show you everything you need to convert your garage into the man cave of your dreams. A place you and the fellas will enjoy for years to come.
According to a recent survey, 40 percent of modern American households already currently have a man cave. Meanwhile, another 13 percent are planning to add one in the next year.
Garage doors are the largest moving part of every home. That being said, upgrading can boost your mancave-ability in the following ways:

Custom shelving won’t only give you a place to store all of your collected signature sports gear. In addition, it will also double as extra storage for your tools and other garage accessories. Cabinets can be used to house everything you don’t want to see in your man cave, as well as mount your TV, Beer keg or favorite “Dad of the Year” trophy. While building your man cave custom shelving, build a shelving system that is as versatile as possible. As a result, your space can still be used for both a man cave and a garage.
Nothing would be worse than getting your game day space ready and not being able to breathe because of the summer heat. Since not all garages have vents to allow this space to be heated or cooled, we suggest installing a smaller AC unit to make your man cave more comfortable. This can easily be done by installing an heat pump unit that blows both hot and cold air. (This would be similar to what you see in a standard hotel room by the window).
As much as you’d like to convince yourself right now, basic concrete doesn’t give off the comfortable and luxurious feel you’re trying to create. Especially if there are oil stains all over the place. A stone epoxy flooring can be directly applied over your concrete floor and will instantly transform the look and feel of your man cave. Stone epoxy is easy to clean, slip-resistant, durable and above all, looks great. It is also far more affordable than carpeting. Which in short, will save you time if you ever decide to switch your area back to a garage.
Most garages are made of unfinished drywall. Even if your walls happen to be painted, the texture may not be the same as the rest of your home. Adding texture and a fresh coat of paint will make your space feel more like a part of your house.
Pro Tip: Avoid dark colors, as they will certainly make your man cave feel like a dungeon. Light, neutral colors will help enhance the other features of your stylish new crib.
Most garages come with only a couple light bulbs hanging from the ceiling and the additional light from the opener. While you might not be able to change the garage door opener’s light, you can enhance the other lights with an Upgraded light kit. In short, new lighting will help make your newly converted garage feel more like a room and less like an storage unit.
In conclusion, finish off your man cave with a big screen TV, couches, Alexa, game tables and any other accessories you want and need in there. Express your creativity and make your new game-day-ready space your own.
