Let’s go over 20 steps to convert your garage into a man cave perfect for watching the game, relaxing, or spending time with friends. Now that you have decided to transform the garage into a man cave, it’s time to ask some key questions to help you get started. It’s important to clear the space out to properly visualize the room you have and any possibly troublesome aspects you might have forgotten about.

Once the space is empty, and everything has found a new home elsewhere, you can start seeing the end product of your man cave and feel more inspired.

Garages can accumulate a lot of dirt, grease, and grime during their years of service, so rinsing everything down and scrubbing it clean is important! Now that you have the space cleaned out and a rough idea of what you want your man cave to look like, it’s time to draw up some plans.

And, make a note of any furniture you need to purchase to complete the space and decor— the small touches can really pull a place together! Gaming consoles, flatscreens, air hockey, foosball tables, a home brewery setup, or even an old-fashioned arcade machine are great options.

Because most garages are equipped with concrete flooring, they are not particularly built for spending a long time inside comfortably. For turning your garage into a great man cave, you’ll likely have to put some proper flooring down. You can add padding and carpet for a softer feel or opt for removable epoxy flooring in case you want to revert it back to a normal garage or storage space. If you plan on using your man cave for musical pursuits and want to make sure your rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t keep the rest of the neighborhood awake, insulation is a good idea.

Garages are not typically known as warm areas, and if you are planning on spending a lot of time in your converted garage-man cave, you need to consider the heating. On top of insulating your building, space heaters and radiators can be a good idea, particularly if you live in a colder area. Make sure you have a variety of lamps for tabletops and corners and consider recessed lighting across the ceiling for a modern look. It’s likely a good idea to do some extra waterproofing to ensure the entire space is watertight and safe. Tanking with a slurry sealant is a cheap, easy, and effective way to prevent water from leaking into your new man cave. Most man caves will have plenty of need for plugging things in, whether to charge your phone or power your entire gaming setup.

And as you design and create your man cave, it’s the perfect opportunity to add some room for refreshments to your space. Consider a mini-fridge, a beer cooler, or even a full wet bar setup to cater to anyone’s thirst.

While you will be the primary user of your man cave, it’s always a good idea to leave enough room for friends to hang out. Smart home systems, remote locks, and cameras are all essential to guard against theft.

Whether you are relaxing with the latest episode of a crime drama, cheering on your favorite team, or settling in for a video gaming marathon, seating is essential in your man cave. While garages tend to have a good amount of organizational space, you might want to add some custom shelving.

Built-in shelves are great for holding your gaming and media consoles, and wall-to-wall cabinets are versatile for many applications. You can even make a filing cabinet into a quirky side table and fill it with records or board games.

Figuring out the style of your man cave is another key part of creating the perfect getaway.

You can fully customize the space to your hobbies and interests by adding little details like knick knacks or memorabilia to your man cave.

You can add a simple wooden frame to the walls and attach drywall panels for better insulation and a sleeker appearance. Once your man cave is complete and outfitted with all your new furniture and electronics, you will need to update your home inventory.
