Insulation

Next would be insulation. Now, you want the man cave to be a place where you can enjoy sports all year around, right? Having insulation helps keep you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer! One way to save money is by installing the garage door insulation yourself. You will need the walls, floors, ceilings, and garage door insulated. Garage insulation is expected to be on the lighter side of things, which is great! So, don’t worry about all your money going to that.

Lighting

The next helpful tip to turn your garage into a man cave would have to be the lights. You wouldn’t want to spend all this time and money on your man cave and not be able to show ALL of it off. You want to make sure your lights go with your style. Another little tip: If you have an attached garage it might be a bit easier to install your lights yourself. If you have a detached garage, it might get a little bit tricky, and calling the electrician might be the best choice.

Flooring

Let’s face it, garage floors were not meant to be comfortable. In fact, they are very cold/hot at times. Adding wood floors to your garage could give you “that look” that your man cave is missing. Plus, it gives off a more welcoming vibe, which will make your guests want to return and you holding the title for best man cave on the block!
