Who ever said that a room for entertaining, having fun and doing the things you love should only be reserved for men? Yes, a man cave is nice for the male in your household, but don’t forget about the woman of the house. There’s no reason she can’t have her very own space set aside just for the things she loves. In fact, this is a great way for Mom to get the feminine room she would love.
Getting Started: What Does She Need and Want in the Room?
The first step is deciding what furnishings, storage and design elements are necessary to incorporate in the space (which can be anything from an entire room to a space under the stairs to a large closet). Does Mom enjoy crafting, sewing, painting or photography? Does she simply want a place where she can watch a movie undisturbed or read that latest bestseller? Maybe she wants to be surrounded by beautiful things that inspire her or simply have a place to curl up with her favorite pet while listening to music.
Depending on the answer, your Mom Cave may need a desk and chair, shelving, cabinet storage, recliner and lamp, TV and media players, perhaps even a sink or a full bathroom. Deciding first what needs to go into the room will help you determine the layout and space required.
Finding the Right Furnishings
When you identify the role of the room, it’s time to move on to the fun part: decorating the space! If Mom loves contemporary furnishings, then she is sure to love some of these ideas for pieces that function the way she wants them to.
For a Mom Cave where she can curl up and relax with a good movie, book or her favorite music and a cup of tea, an entertainment center should be the piece de resistance. Keep the mood light with either this Sierra Walnut TV Organizer unit or this sleek white lacquer media stand. Of course, she needs a comfy place to sit; this pearl-white leather comfort recliner could be perfect! Then again, if she likes a pop of strong color, this beautiful red leather reclining chair might be preferred. Add a contemporary floor lamp that is easy to move for specific task lighting and she’s all set!
Is Mom more of a crafter? Then she needs some ingenious storage space. A Lollibook wall bed by Clei gives her plenty of room to showcase her supplies while also providing storage behind doors and a bed that allows her, or a guest, to nap! A leather ottoman or two is a wonderful solution to finding space for fabric or yarn. This beautiful glass and mirror etagere is a great place for her to show off her finished projects.
Does your Mom Cave need to accommodate an executive mom who works from home? Try pairing this pretty-in-pink office chair with a red leather-topped desk for maximum impact. In a smaller space, this gorgeous wood laptop desk would be ideal. Don’t forget lots of lighting and a place for files, books and office supplies, too.
