If you are thinking of converting your garage into a man cave, then you will most likely need to install new garage doors. At United Doors, we provide a range of professional garage door services in Brisbane and we know that most man caves need an automatic door that looks good and can stand up to some hard work.
Basically, you can choose between roller shutter garage doors and the panel doors that swing upwards. Whichever type you select, you will likely need to contact a garage door company to install it for you and to service it on an annual basis.
Once you have your garage doors sorted, you then need to turn it into your very own man cave. Follow our tips below and your man cave will be open for business in no time at all!
- Consider how you will use your man cave: Do you want a pool table and bar, a large screen TV with multimedia capabilities, big comfy sofa and a bar fridge or do you want a workshop? Maybe you want a combination of these features? Knowing what you want will make step 2 much easier.
- Declutter the garage: It’s time to find new homes for everything that will get in the way of you achieving your dream man cave. So throw out some things, store others in the house and even set up a shed in the garden for additional storage.
- Install a new floor: Depending on how you will use your new man cave, you might need to install a floor over the concrete. Laminate floors are fine, but you can also use concrete paint or an epoxy flooring.
- Insulation: Depending on whether your garage is attached or detached, you might need to install insulation in the roof spaces and the walls. It’s also a good idea to insulate the garage doors to keep your man cave cool in summer and warm in winter. You can talk about insulating the garage doors with your garage door company when they install your doors.
- Find the right furnishings: You might already have everything you need to outfit your man cave, but if not and depending on your budget, you can check out second hand stores, auction sites, eBay and Gumtree. You can even spend a few hours going around the weekend garage sales buying other people’s stuff for your man cave.
