Building a home for your family should always be a wonderful experience since you’ll be creating a space to create memories with them. However, with all of the time you’re spending with them, you might want to have a moment for yourself where you can enjoy some ‘me time’ and be at peace.
Building Your Woman Cave
If you have enough space in your home, you might want to consider building a woman cave where you can keep yourself out of the world and enjoy spending some time on your own. It’ll be a private sanctuary where you can enjoy everything that you’d like without other people interfering.
Listed below are some ways you can create the perfect woman cave:
- Create A Lounge Area
While you don’t need to invite people over to hang out in your lounge area, it would still be a great idea to build one so you can sit back, relax, and do the things that you like to do.
To achieve maximum comfort, you should consider buying plenty of pillows for your living space so there’ll be extra cushions that you can enjoy leaning on. If you’re finding it challenging to find the perfect pillowcase that’ll match the theme of your woman cave, you can try getting a custom print. Not only will you be able to achieve the look you’re going for but you can have a unique set of pillows for your lounge area.
- Build A Coffee Or Wine Nook
How many times have you found yourself wanting to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine but you didn’t since there are plenty of other things that you needed to do? It could also be that your kids are around and you don’t want them to see that you’re drinking, even if it’s in moderation. So, to allow yourself to enjoy your favorite drink, adding a coffee or wine nook in your cave would be an excellent idea.
As you build your coffee or wine corner, ensure that you allot enough counter space, which will allow you to prepare them without worrying about where to place your cup or glass. You should also add all the extra ingredients or equipment needed. For example, you could add in your favorite coffee syrups, milk frother, cheese, and snacks. This should include everything you need to enjoy your drink.
- Decorate As You Like
With your home, some of the decorations that you’d like to see might not be appropriate since other members of your household might have a different theme in mind. While it’s best to compromise for the people you love, you can still achieve your ideal interior design on a smaller scale.
For your woman cave, feel free to decorate the entire room as you please. You can add all of the indoor plants you’d like to grow without worrying about their toxicity to the kids and pets. You can also add your favorite wall decorations which you weren’t able to add to your living room. Treat the woman cave as your personal space where you don’t have to worry about other people’s opinions. After all, it’s a space just for you.
- Have A Mini Office
If you’re a work-from-home mom and you have toddlers who keep bugging you every time you try to work, you know the need for having your own office where you can work in peace. So, given your circumstances, it would be a great idea if you can have a mini office in your woman cave where you can face your computer or do your craft without anyone bugging you. Just ensure that an adult is watching over your kids or that they’re sleeping and you have a baby monitor with you.
As you build your mini office, ensure that you have enough space for your computer or your tools to complete your work responsibilities. You can add as many office decorations as you’d like, as long as they keep you happy. Try to keep the area as organized as possible. You wouldn’t want to keep on roaming around the room trying to look for a pen.
- Make It Personal
Different people have different hobbies that they’d like to do in their cave. While you may want to just watch your favorite rom-com films, some may want it to be a place where they can sew dresses or knit a sweater. To make your woman cave the perfect fit for you, always design the room to be personal and fitting to your personality.
You could create a corner where you keep all your crafts or the things that you’d like to be on display, such as collectibles, books, or even makeup. This way, your woman cave won’t only be an escape from reality but also a happy place wherein you can truly enjoy yourself.
A woman cave is your personal space where you can be who you really are and enjoy your time alone. With that, you need to ensure that it has everything you need so you’ll have an enjoyable or relaxing experience each time you visit your space.
When designing your woman cave, you only have to consider your preferences for the design since it’ll be your place to relax. It’s a place where you can finally do the things that you’ve refrained from doing due to circumstances.
