Design Your Own ”Mom Cave”

This idea is just for us girls. The “mom cave” is the new decorating phenomenon for the women of the house as they stake a claim to a secluded and quiet space of their own. It is a wonderful idea not only for moms and wives/girls can create their own “girlfriend cave”. The macho looking “man cave” with its sport memorabilia and big screen television has inspired the creation of this very feminine space that offers solace and a place for recharging and regrouping. It can give you the time you need to regain your inner strengths.Fun Room

The “mom cave” can be any size you can carve out in your home. A walk-in closet would make a wonderful cozy space that is also budget friendly. An area in your home with a great view would be a bonus. Try to locate yourself away from the main hub area of your home so that you can have some peace and quiet in your space. The main thing is to get started and find a spot to call your own.

Decorating the “mom cave” and the “girlfriend cave” is a breeze with unlimited possibilities. Personalize it to your tastes and desires. The floral wallpaper that your husband hated can be put in this space for you to enjoy. Always have the room measurements handy so when you see the perfect chaise, you will know if it is a perfect fit. Also, take time to think about how you want the room to work for you. It could be a place to sit in a comfy chair and listen to your favorite music. Or if you would like to try your hand at different arts you will need to include a table surface. Have pencils and a journal book on hand if you plan be doing some writing.

Start decorating your space by deciding what to use on the walls be as colorful or neutral as your heart desires. After all, this space will be a reflection of you to be enjoyed by you. Do you like stripes, florals, or pastel colors? This is the place to put them. Then get furnishings and accessories new or from around the house that will work for your vision of the “mom cave.” The only rule for this space is that you feel happy and relaxed in your personal cocoon. Be sure it functions for you.

Now just sit back and enjoy your special area and never again be envious of the guys relaxing in their “man cave”. Besides, our special spaces are so much prettier!!
