Having your own space is actually healthy for you. It is psychologically important for everyone. So when your husband wants a man cave, don’t freak out.
A psychology professor from the University of Texas says space is very important for regulating emotions. Professor Sam Gosling studies how space is a powerful way to awaken our emotions. Having your own space that is decorated by you and only you can affect your emotional well-being in a very positive way. Whether he likes to work on cars or motorcycles, read hunting/fishing magazines, smoke cigars, watch his favorite sports games, or serve beer from his kegerator. Professor Gosling says that Man Caves are the architectural equivalent to hanging out with your buddies. The Man Cave is his area to unwind, relax and enjoy some quiet time or do whatever makes him happy.
The Man Cave Sign from Atlas is a great way to let everyone know what and who’s room it is. Hang it on the door, the wall inside, the threshold to the shop, wherever. Keep it the way we have it here, or have it say something else. Add “no girls allowed” or “wives keep out” if you’re that protective of it. Up to you :).
