We all need our own space away from the world, but guys in particular will thrive in a room that is tailored around their hobbies, interests and all things blokey.
Spoil the man in your family by creating or adding to an area at home that is truly his. Whether it’s a full-on man cave or just a small, enjoyable place to take time out, it’s nice for them to have a spot to call their own. Treasures that remind them of the past are ideal, as well as family memories and mementos they hold dear, to create a relaxing space.
It’s also important to ensure the room has a masculine feel, which can be done by using a colour palette of neutral shades, such as blacks, whites and greys. Keep the space cosy, but still obviously “manly”, by using family photos, lightly scented candles and personalised objects. Interactive items, such as this cool “building blocks for adults” Lego Architecture, give you a chance to create a project together with your dad, or the father of your children, leaving him with something that’s sentimental and long-lasting.
