Garden Man Cave
Every UK husband, father, or partner deserves a place to call his own. A man cave gives men space to engage in hobbies, hang out with mates, or clear their heads. Not every family has extra room in their home, but a garden man cave from Garden & Rooms does.
Garden rooms are robust enough to accommodate every product found in the average man cave. But they’re also small enough to fit in just about any yard. A high-quality garden building will offer extra room for escaping stress or hosting mates without disturbing family life inside the main house.
Keep reading to discover the benefits of building a garden man cave and how to turn it into the perfect solution for a man-friendly shelter for you and all of your mates.
What is a Man Cave?
These rooms are designed specifically with husbands, fathers, brothers, and other men in mind. They contain every product required to relax and unwind, host mates when the game is on, or pursue hobbies. Installing these specialised detached structures can also free up more room in the house.
The Benefits of Garden Man Caves
Garden rooms are a grand place for men to call their own. Customers love the fact that they don't take up much room in the home. Case studies show that building a garden man cave also provides a myriad of other benefits, including the ones below:
Since they’re separate buildings, garden rooms provide far more privacy than a typical man cave does. Garden buildings also feature plenty of insulation to block out extreme heat or cold and sound. No matter what goes on in a garden man cave, occupants can rest assured that they won’t be stuck dealing with constant intrusions.
Garden buildings are far more versatile than basement rooms and other indoor areas conventionally used as man caves. These detached buildings can accommodate just about any product required to have a good time, from pool tables to gaming systems. If family dynamics change, garden rooms can also be repurposed.
We can also create a luxury man cave for those with wallets to accommodate all the extra niceties. We carry a full product range of high-end building materials; however, it’s usually up to the buyer to choose the product selection for furniture, games, entertainment, and amenities.
Inviting the mates over to watch a game in a newly constructed men-only detached structure will surely impress your mates. Most men covet personal privacy over even the most popular new product on the market, much like a good stout Guinness.
Preparing for Installation
The only thing that customers need to do to prepare for professional installation is clear a flat area in their gardens. As long as the roof eaves are less than 2.5 metres from the ground, there’s no need for planning permission or garden laws. Call the experts Mon-Fri at Garden & Rooms to take care of all the details while preparing for your new life with your backyard retreat.
How to Turn Garden Rooms Into a Man Cave
Customers have plenty of options when it comes to customizing their garden buildings. Each garden room comes with an insulated roof, flooring, and walls. The windows and bi-fold doors are double-glazed, the exterior walls come in plenty of colors, and each garden building is fully wired.
Once their buildings have been installed, which is easy when no planning permissions are required, men can get started customising their spaces. Our models’ product selection is extensive, and the average specialized product can fit just fine in a garden room.
Here are just a few man cave ideas for help brainstorming about product selection:
- TVs and website entertainment centers
- Counters and bar stools
- Arcade games and floor weights
- Home furnishings like couches and chairs
- Rugs or carpets to cover flooring
- Mini-refrigerators for snacks like cookies
Before buying your first product, start by coming up with a room design. A man cave offers a fantastic opportunity to escape from life, but that looks different for every man. Check out the average men’s life magazine to see what other people are doing with their spaces.
Intended use affects everything from furniture arrangements to product selection. It will also influence choices like what utility lines to have brought in from the main house.
Categories of Man Cave
Every man is different, and no one design will work for everyone. Just like some women use their kitchens for baking cookies while others hang out drinking wine in them, men have different interests and hobbies. That said, standard designs can be broken up by category.
Here are the most popular types of man cave based on style and function:
- The rustic log cabin floor design for traditionalists
- The cinema room type for movie buffs
- The entertainment room for sport enthusiasts
- The pool room for pool sharks of all sizes
- The games room for avid video game enthusiasts
- The home bar for hosting mates of all different sizes
- The back garden studio for artists, musicians, and writers
Ultimately, it’s up to individual customers whether they want their buildings’ interiors to look like log cabins or contemporary man caves. The buildings themselves can accommodate a range of uses and can even be used as garden offices.
Man Cave Garden vs. Garden Sheds
The similarities between sheds and garden man caves are that they are both small detached structures built on-site. Other than that, the building types are very different.
Garden sheds are typically tiny. They’re designed to create space for storing tools and equipment and perhaps performing some basic garden-related tasks. Most don’t have windows, and some sheds don’t even have real doors.
These quality buildings provide all the comforts of home without the need for a home addition. There are tons of design choices available in garden buildings that wouldn’t make sense for sheds.
These models can be used in a range of different functions. One of the best things about them is their versatility. Property owners can request add-ons like bi-fold doors, plumbing fixtures, or specialised wiring for sensitive electrics. They can accommodate a wide range of work and leisure products and have all the space required to host mates.

Converting Sheds Into Man Caves
Most sheds are not large enough or built to the quality standards required to create a comfortable recreational space. It makes much more sense to install a garden room. There’s no need for planning permission at either year-round or summer houses, and the design options are endless.
Those who are determined to convert a garden shed into quality usable space may be able to do it if they have the right tools and experience. However, they’ll have their work cut out for them.
Converting a shed into usable space requires adding windows, upgrading the door, installing insulation, running electrical wiring, and more. All it takes to prepare for a professional garden building installation, on the other hand, is basic site preparation. It’s a better option.
Common Uses for Man Caves
These buildings are incredibly versatile. Men can do whatever they want in their caves, from sitting around eating cookies to watching rugby with their mates. The whole point is to have a quality indoor space just as functional as a home addition without all the hassles.
One of the best ways to make sure the garden room gets used to its full potential is to get some idea of intended use. It will make everything from design specification to buying products much easier. Plus, there are available options and features like extra electrics outlets or added windows that need to be designed from the beginning.
Add Power for Entertainment Rooms
Southampton homeowners who plan to use their garden rooms for entertaining mates may want to add a TV, a gaming system, or other tech features. One way to make sure there will be enough electricity to power these electrics is to add extra sockets.
Keep Things Simple for Rustic Retreats
Thoroughly contemporary entertainment rooms are just one option among many. Traditional men may prefer to spend their quality time in a rustic space with a hunting cabin’s look. In this case, there may be no need for even a TV, let alone a robust entertainment system.
Leave Space for Workshops
Artists and artisans in England have been looking for ways to bring their favorite activities closer to home during the COVID crisis. Building a high-quality studio on-site is one great way to do that. Once COVID is over, men will still be able to use the extra space for whatever they want, from enjoying milk and cookies to have a pint with your best mates.
England-based homeowners can find plenty of inspiration on the Garden & Rooms website menu. Accept the cookies and take a look at our quality designs. There should be options to fit any site, and we can customize them as needed. All our garden rooms are built to the highest quality standards.
