Beyond the Man Cave:
Masculine Spaces Go Mainstream

When it comes to remodeling, the word "masculine" usually conjures up visions of a "man cave" in the basement with a giant TV, a recliner and maybe a pool table. But a "cave" might not be what every guy wants and it certainly doesn't have to be the only direction for remodeling with the man of the house in mind. Masculine style can go mainstream: carry it throughout the home with spaces that are clean, simple and efficient, leaving fussiness behind.

1. Basement. Starting with the obvious, he probably will want a large flat screen TV with surround sound (and maybe a gaming system). The basement is also the perfect place for heavy exercise equipment, but after that, make room for other interests, like a wine cellar, computer desk with room for 3 monitors, cabinets for a trophy (or beer stein) collection, or a closet fitted for storing golf clubs, photography equipment or fishing and hunting gear.

Ty's Tip   Keeping Your Cool
A ceiling fan is an easy and energy-efficient way to feel cooler, using as little energy as a 100-watt light bulb. Keep in mind, however, that it does little good to run it when you're not around. The fan really isn't cooling the room. Like a breeze on a hot summer day, it's the blowing air moving across your body that makes you feel cooler.
