9 Benefits of Having a Garden Man Cave

Struggling to find the space at home for you to stretch your legs and relax? Don’t feel guilty about needing your own personal space for your hobbies and interests. Having a space to call your own is super important in managing your stress levels when at home. Not just on a personal level, but for everyone in the family. Cutting away just a small piece of the property for your use and yours alone will give you a safe space to relax. One such place is a man cave.

Why have a Garden Man Cave?

We may be biassed, but we’re completely convinced that using a garden room as a man cave is the best option. It’s construction is a lot more convenient, less time consuming and more affordable than having an extension added to your property. Bespoke garden man caves look fantastic, becoming a feature in your garden in its own right. A garden man cave also gives the best level of escapism, giving you the best quality personal time when you need it.

Enjoy your free time without disruptions

Most man caves are dedicated for leisure use only and that time’s best enjoyed without the stresses of everyday life getting in the way. A man cave gives you valuable space to relax and unwind. Kick back and enjoy the peace out in your garden.

Keep shared spaces for shared use

If you’re limited on space in the house to call your own, using a garden room as a man cave means you don’t have to change how things are inside. Your living room remains as somewhere you can enjoy the company of your partner and family, watch programmes that you all like together, relax and share time together and have some fun with family games.

Good for healthy relationship dynamics

Sometimes, we just want some time alone to ourselves and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s perfectly healthy. You don’t have to put your personal interests and hobbies on standby if your partner doesn’t share them. Instead, they have the space to flourish. Your partner respects that you need space of your own and you, in return, respect their space too.

Reduces stress

We try our best to not take our work home with us, but it’s not that easy. Dedicating a space to just that – relaxing and enjoying pass times – is the best way to give yourself the headspace you need. Mindfulness has a huge positive impact on mental health, giving yourself time to separate from all stresses in your life.

A space to call your own

A man cave can be the home to all your embarrassing memorabilia, proudly on display rather than tucked up in the attic in boxes. It doesn’t matter how gaudy your tastes are, your man cave is yours to decorate and design as you like it. Whether you want to evoke a style that you like, turning your man cave into a cosy cabin or a games room, it’s your blank slate.

Soundproofing keeps the peace

A garden man cave can be the perfect place for some of the noisier pursuits. At Miniature Manors, we offer soundproofing as an extra for garden rooms that need to have the noise contained so not to disturb your neighbours. We have clients who can practise even drums inside their garden rooms without barely any noise bothering anyone.

Keeps your private space physically separate

One of the major perks of using a garden room as your man cave is the physical distance between the main house and your man cave. It might not be a huge distance, but mentally it matters. Knowing that you’re less likely to have something interrupt your downtime puts you a lot more at ease. If you work from home, having a separate space away from where you work helps maintain your work/life split which is much harder to keep when your working hours are spent at home.

Saves on converting a room or building an extension

Having a garden room built saves you a lot of the hassle you’d otherwise have with converting a room or building an extension. A garden man cave wouldn’t need planning permission as it’s considered as a permitted development. You keep all your rooms as they are and avoid the expense of having building work done to your house – and the disruption it would cause.

Improves house value

Having a garden room built benefits you in the long run. Additional floor space at your property will always raise your house value. Having a durable, custom-made garden room is a real selling point for a house on the market. While selling isn’t on your mind right now, it could be in the future.
