From VersaTube Garage to Ultimate Man Cave

by A.D. Vuittonet on November 27, 2018

Your garage is one of the most versatile aspects of your home, yet it’s often the most underutilized space! It’s so versatile, in fact, that people use it for a range of functions, from practical to fun. However, you’re not here for the practicality of your garage, you’re here because you’re ready to turn your VersaTube garage into THE ultimate man cave.

Whether you want to use your man cave for watching football, a private place to game, or to host friends at your personal bar, we’ve got some tips and recommendations for you. Have fun!

Start With Decluttering

You won’t have a clue what to do with this space if you haven’t started cleaning it out. Beginning with a clean slate is essential to the success of your man cave. All you need is one (or two, depending on how much you’ve hoarded away) days to sift through everything. Get rid of any junk and if you’ve found something of worth, you might want to consider selling it. Tempting as it may be, remove things that have no purpose or that can be stored out of the way. Wall mounts and utility shelves are easy ways to do this.

Measure Available Space

It probably wouldn’t be a good idea to haphazardly add new furniture or gadgets to your space without measuring it first. You need a good idea of the dimensions that you’re working with before you can jump into action.

Consider a Theme

What is the purpose of your man cave? Is it going to be an office? A place to entertain friends during sporting events? Here are a few awesome ideas for man cave themes:

  • The “sports and only sports” man cave - this one speaks for itself. This man cave is perfect for you if you enjoy sports and need a place to relax while you watch your favorite teams. This man cave isn’t complete without a large screen TV, sports-related posters and a couple of jerseys adorning the walls.

  • The “hipster” man cave - Love IPA, local craft beer and fix-geared bicycles? Then look no further. The “hipster” man cave is not complete without a home bar decorated to look like your favorite whiskey hangout. Don’t forget the record player and antique furniture. Finally, order a big case of local brews, and you’re ready to go!

  • The “college freshman” man cave - few things bring us back to the old days like a beer pong table, Foosball and plastic red cups. If you enjoy your fair share of tabletop games, then this may be what you need.

  • The “just winging it” man cave - this is the man cave that doesn’t really have a theme, but fits you like a glove. You can fill it up with things you enjoy collecting and add some decor with a personal touch. In this case, the world is your oyster!

Practical Uses Work, Too

Some people opt to use their garage for workspace (shops, salons or craft rooms), gyms (fitness studios, yoga studios, martial arts studios), music rooms, small dance halls, playrooms, art galleries, entertainment rooms and more! It’s completely up to your creativity and lifestyle.

Insulation, is it Necessary?

Insulation is a very important consideration as your garage’s temperature will naturally vary during different seasons. Insulating your walls, ceiling, floors and garage door will help you keep your garage pleasant year-round.

No Need to Spend an Arm and a Leg

To begin right now, we recommend you start by using what you already have. If you’ve got an older TV lying around, a table that you’ve been dying to replace in the house, or cool antiques that have been hidden away, now is the time to pull them out! Nothing is a better conversation starter than weird or fun pieces of furniture and accessories.
