Attic Man Cave Ideas

Attic man cave ideas

So, what’s keeping you from getting your own man cave? If you say you ‘don’t have space,’ you might be in for a surprise. What if we told you that there’s a room in your house that you’re just not aware of? The attic could be an excellent location for a guy cave. Granted, it may need some effort. Nonetheless, we’ve compiled a few pointers as well as a comprehensive list of ideas to help you get started.

How to Build an Attic Man Cave

First and foremost, let’s get this over with. This isn’t going to be easy or inexpensive. A good man cave will be a labor of love, and let’s be honest, if it were easy, everybody would have one. So you think we’re onto something and are thinking of building an attic man cave? Here’s our short and easy guide, along with some pointers on how to start.

Take a Look Around the Attic

You’ll need to understand what you’re up against. If your loft is anything like ours, you’ll undoubtedly find a pile of dusty insulation, no ‘floor,’ and last year’s Christmas decorations. We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Consider What You Desire

You’ll want to think hard about what you can accomplish once you realize the size and scope of your attic. Your options will be limited by two factors: space and budget.

Consider what you might be able to do with the space. Will it be a peaceful environment in which to work? Will it be a place where you can just relax and watch a movie? Is there going to be a theme?

Begin Making Preparations

First, consider the ‘larger picture.’ Here, we’re talking in broad strokes. It’s a good start to be certain you can stand on the attic floor without smashing through the bathroom ceiling.

As previously stated, the attic is likely to be crammed with junk. That garbage must be removed. It can be rather soothing to have a good old purge. After you’ve gotten rid of all the old junk, you can start thinking about what will live there.

Ease of Access

We recall how we used to enter the loft… A chair and a muscle-up were involved. We hate to break it to you, but an unexpected ‘CrossFit session isn’t the best way to start a calm session. You’ll have to make things simple for yourself. As a bare minimum, folding or telescopic ladders are the way to go.

Taking Action

This next step may be simple for you if you are a DIY master. However, we ordinary mortals, who are more accustomed to asking prefer to employ pros. Before you spend any money on expensive gadgets, get these things in order:

  • The floor coverings
  • The partitions
  • Insulation
  • Electrics, lights, and wiring

This could take months and cause disruption in your daily routine. This guide is a must-read for anyone looking for advice on how to sell the idea of a man cave. So, you’ve got an empty room that’s warm, has electrical outlets, and is simple to get to. Now it’s time to see what you can accomplish.

Attic Man Cave Ideas

Games Room in the Attic

This one doesn’t appear to be too difficult to complete. It is, if anything, a little too conservative. It does, however, have a few clever features. The usage of a corner sofa has helped to maximize the available space. They’re wonderful for creating a sense of space because they don’t make the room long and thin.

Circular pieces help to break up the room’s straight lines even more. The sloping roof is one place in attics that is usually challenging. A TV was mounted on a flat area of the wall to solve this problem. Also, the sofa is somewhat low. There isn’t enough natural light in the space. Large circular ‘globe type’ lighting with brilliant bulbs has solved this problem.

Cozy Cave

This isn’t so much a ‘lads’ gaming area as it is a ‘girls’ gaming room. It’s a little more sophisticated now. As a result, the room lacks a focal point. But, in the meantime, here’s what we’ve got.

The room is made cozier by the softly lighted oak-paneled walls. This is complemented by a dark rug, which really helps to make the space appear smaller. Because the desk is adjacent to a large window, it should get enough natural light during the day.

Night Sky

This, on the other hand, is a unique situation. When you get right down to it, this room doesn’t have much to offer. However, it looks fantastic thanks to some creative lighting and a few other ideas. The stars in this room are most likely projected. This is a simple and inexpensive way to add atmosphere. The neutral colors appeal to us (we aren’t usually fans of beige).

If weight and wiring are an issue, they’ve devised an ingenious method. It isn’t television at all. It’s a projector, after all. This is a terrific method to acquire a widescreen picture without needing to put your property up for sale. Something else to think about in this room. People’s eyes prefer regular shapes and forms with virtually perfect symmetry.

Book Nook

There will be no GTA V here; it will be simple and effective. Thank you very much. But, if you want to unwind with a glass of brandy, we believe it’s one of the greatest we’ve seen. It’s simple, yet it gets the job done. The cream leather looks excellent with the rug, and the pouffe is a great place to put your feet.

If you can’t get a chair into the attic, a similar effect can be created with a bean bag. The books make excellent use of the empty space behind the shelf, and the edge units keep the room from feeling too cramped.

Conclusion

Hopefully, the preceding has provided you with a plethora of ideas for attic man caves. First, determine how much area you have, how much money you have, and what you can reasonably expect to accomplish.

Even if it’s simply a bean bag rather than a sofa, once your attic is useable, you’ll have plenty of options and solutions. What do you have in mind? Do you have any photos? Why don’t you leave a comment and we’ll include it on our list?
