Basement Ideas for the Ultimate Man Cave

Basement Ideas for the Ultimate Man Cave

Every man out there cannot deny that they would love their very own ‘man cave’, here are some great ideas for a basement conversion into the ultimate ‘man cave’.

Converting your cluttered basement is an ideal place to create this space for the ultimate ‘man cave’ or dad’s pad.

Games room

We all know how much men love playing games.  Converting a basement into a games room complete with pool table, mini fridge, bar, pinball machine or arcade game is a dream room that every man would love to spend time in.

Inviting the guys round for drinks after a hard week at work is the perfect end to the week.

Cinema room

To create the perfect cinema room you would require a projector, a projector screen/widescreen tv and a comfortable place to sit.

This is the perfect place for the lads watching the football match on a Saturday afternoon with a few beers or time with the family watching a film on a Sunday afternoon.


The biggest challenge for certain people is just turning up especially on these cold winter evenings and after a hard day at the office.

Why not convert the space into a multi functioning high technology gym – the perfect way to get fit and tone up the body.  No need to pay a gym membership. Get fit in the comfort of your own home.

Consider the right flooring, lighting and of course air circulation.  An overhead fan is a great idea or splash out with air conditioning.  Using mirrors, bright bold colours and selecting the right equipment for yourself is also important.


Creating a beverage area in a way that will be comfortable for family and friends can be a hard decision.

Must have bar requirements could be –

  • Fridge
  • Plenty of glasses
  • Large selection of drinks
  • Beer keg
  • Bar stools (in the view of a widescreen tv to keep the men happy)

It’s the perfect way to spend an evening with the lads watching a football match whilst drinking your favourite drink.

You’ve probably seen all the horror video’s or even experienced first hand some shocking workmanship from cow boy builders and therefore finding a reliable builder in Sheffield can seem like mission impossible.

Milestone pride themselves on customer satisfaction as well as delivering an outstanding service from start to finish.

It’s vital to find a builder in your area, or surrounding areas, that provide a clear, competitive price as well other equally important information you should consider.

Here’s our list to help you when deciding on a reliable builder in Sheffield;

  1. Speaking with friends and family can be a great starting point. Seeing any building works that they have had undertaken and asking them their opinion on the builder that they used and ask them if they would use them again.
  2. If approaching your builder without any previous recommendations ask them if they have any references that you can check out.
  3. Ask for the builders experience and qualifications.
  4. Ask to see their current insurance certificates.
  5. Check whether the builder uses subcontracts.
  6. How do they communicate with you throughout the project? Do they use a project management system that offers clear communication and budget information like Milestone?
  7. Make sure they provide a detailed quote, more information the better and how long is their quote guaranteed for?
  8. Draw up a contract if the work is substantial or if they provide a contract, make sure you look through it properly before signing or better still get legal advice.
  9. Make sure phases and staged payments are agreed up front.
  10. Ask a council inspector to check the work undertaken meets building regulations.
