Dad’s got his man cave, the kids have their playroom — even the dog has a kennel! But what about Mom?
It’s time mom gets a space of her own and we do not mean a state-of-the-art kitchen! Although, mom might enjoy that too, especially if it is going to simplify the meal preparation process. But today we are talking about the idea of a a mom cave. Show her your love this Valentines Day with a room of her own.
At Burns Home Improvement’s we can design and build the ultimate space for Mom.
A place where she can kick back and relax with a good book, her closest friends or family and do what she likes to do best.
The first thing to consider is that your mom cave does not need to be a large, dedicated room, backyard gazebo with flourishing gardens, or a finished basement . . . to give the woman in your life a place to escape. Then again, it could also be any of these things.
Try some creativity and make the most of existing space in your home.
Empty nester? Convert your child’s former bedroom into your wife’s new retreat. Maybe a guest room, attic, home office, or even the garage. Okay, that might be a little too traumatic since you have been reserving that space for your latest model BMW convertible.
Before you begin, give a little thought to what kind of space your sweetheart might enjoy. Does she like to spend her time knitting or scrap-booking? Would she like a multimedia theater to catch up on her Direct-TV recordings of her favorite shows? How about a fitness center, complete with cardio equipment and free weights? Maybe the zen or spa-like over sized bathroom complete with a dressing room featuring a comfy couch. Or has she always dreamed of a library with a cozy reading nook?
Whatever room you create for her, be sure to add personal touches to show that you know her and pay attention to her interests.
Finish the room off with few detailed touches that reflect her interests, personality or the intended use of the room. For example, useful items such as yoga blocks for a fitness room, whimsical bookends for a library, an artist’s easel for the arts and crafts room, or a new set of knitting needles for the sewing room . . . all intended to match the room’s purpose.
With a little time and attention, you can create the perfect getaway to show the woman in your life that you value her as an individual and want her to cultivate her interests. And really, isn’t that the best Valentine’s Day gift of all?
