Ah, it’s that time of year again. The time for snow, presents, family, and escaping to your man cave when you just need to get away from it all. That’s right – the holidays are upon us. Is your man cave ready?
A well-known secret among families across the country, the man cave is a sacred space that many seek refuge in when mother-in-laws come to visit, or spouses need help in the kitchen. During the holiday season, the man cave becomes a vital part of any man’s escape plan, but is only successful when fully prepared.
Before you’re summoned to go pick up a second cousin at the airport, make sure your man cave is ready with these simple tricks:
Install a New Door
They key to any successful man cave is the door that separates it from the rest of the house. Don’t think your old set up will do? Install a new door by Simpson. These doors are made from only the best materials, and even have the option of sound proofing so that you can relax knowing that the quiet you crave can be contained.
Stock Up on Entertainment
Before you start your hide out, make sure you have a full schedule of every KU basketball game, home improvement show, and Western movie to watch on the tv in your man cave. Also, be sure to bring a few builder’s magazine with you so you can start planning home improvement projects you want to complete, like a new deck or fence, once spring returns.
Get a Secured Lock
Keep your man cave secured by installing a Kwikset lock on your newly installed door by Simpson. These locks can be programmed with a secret pin code you keep hidden from your kids, and will ensure no one wakes you from your nap to tell you to go take out the trash.
By being prepared with a new Simpson door, Kwikset lock, and not to mention plenty of excuses as to why you have not set the table yet, you will be able to enjoy the holiday season in the peace and solitude only a true man cave can provide.
