Garden Man Cave Ideas

Trying to plan your ultimate man cave haven? Here, we have put together garden man cave ideas so you can really make the most of your outdoor man cave. 

Who wouldn’t love to have a garden man cave at home to do their own thing? Imagine having a place dedicated to doing something you love, where everything you need is gathered together in an easily accessible and attractive location that takes you seconds to reach. 

Unfortunately, unless your house is quite large, it’s not easy to create separate spaces like this in it. This is why we have so many customers come to us to provide them with a tailored garden room for the purposes of creating their very own completely bespoke building in the garden.

What is the female version of a man cave?

The female version of a ‘man cave’ is a ‘she shed’, although they are essentially the same thing. She sheds and man caves are the perfect oasis for giving your family some space away from your hobby – particularly if said hobby takes up quite a lot of room or makes quite a bit of noise! 

In terms of she shed interior design, the possibilities are endless. You can create a serene ambiance by choosing soft, muted colours and incorporating lots of natural elements like wood and plants. Alternatively, you can go bold with bright colours and funky patterns that reflect your personality and style.

Five ideas for your garden man cave

Let’s get those creative juices flowing; below are some of the best garden man cave ideas:

Man cave music room

A man cave could be the ideal place to play instruments or your favourite vinyl. Our garden rooms are extremely effective when it comes to soundproofing, so if you’ve always longed for that special space to indulge your musical passions, then go for it. Whichever way you choose to enjoy your music, a garden building gives you the perfect place to do it. Style your man cave music room with decorative record vinyls, a sleek turntable, and you’ve got yourself the best spot in town.

Man cave for sports

Are you a keen sports lover? Maybe snooker is your thing, or table tennis, but it’s simply not possible to set it up in the house. Perhaps you enjoy a regular gym workout but trying to find time to get there is difficult. A garden man cave offers you the perfect solution, providing a room you can use year round that holds all the necessary equipment so it’s set up ready for action and is in about as convenient a location as is possible! 

Man cave for putting your feet up

If watching sport appeals more than actually doing it, then why not create a chill-out room complete with TV (and possibly fridge - some customers have even added in a bar!) where you can settle down to watch your favourite fixtures? With the addition of a games console, it could also become a gaming room where you can yell at the TV as much as you like without driving anyone else mad. Be warned, though: this set-up is very likely to be a magnet to other members of your family who might also fancy some chilled-out home cinema time… So it may be an idea for a man cave with added guests.

Man cave for indulging in your collections

Collectors will recognise the problem; you devote a significant amount of your time collecting something you’re passionate about, only to have to box them up and store them away as you’ve nowhere to keep them. Your own secure space offers an ideal opportunity to have your collectables on display and quickly accessible. Book lovers can have shelving installed, creating a quiet library space for enjoying reading; model railway collectors can have their track set up permanently; rock collectors can have display units installed to show off their finest specimens... the possibilities are endless.

Man cave as an artist’s den

If you’re an artist or crafter, it can get messy and isn’t ideal for people living with you either. A garden man cave can be used as an artist’s studio, giving you somewhere to keep all your materials and works-in-progress out and accessible. Crafts can be carried out easily, with plenty of space for specialist tools, storage and display.

Tempted by the prospect of your very own man cave?

This isn’t an exhaustive list, and, of course, another big plus is that a garden room’s versatility means the space can be repurposed if you ever wanted it to be. 

Whatever you are using it for – she den, garden man cave, sanctuary, office – our garden rooms are the perfect place to get away from it all while being just steps away from your back door with the bonus that they add extra value to your property too! 

Benefits of a man cave

There are so many excellent benefits to having your own garden man cave, including:

  • Improved mood and mental health
  • A space to socialise with friends
  • Somewhere to enjoy hobbies
  • Increased property value
  • A versatile space to use for almost anything!
