As anyone who lives with their wife or girlfriend will tell you, you don't get much of a say in how the house looks. Not unless you have a particular passion for interior design, at any rate. No matter what you say, the missus isn't going to let you mount the dartboard in the living room and your big leather recliner clashes with the sofa. If all this sounds familiar, it looks like you need a man cave! And the best place for your man cave to be is going to be in the basement! Don't have a basement? Well, it could be worth thinking about getting a basement conversion from a trusted company like Abbey Pynford, because there are some pretty major perks to having your Man Cave in the ground.

For starters, you can get a bar in there. Setting up a bar/pub environment is sure to go down great with your mates when they stop by and it'll make hanging out at the house like a more relaxed version of going to the pub. With a snooker table, a dartboard and, of course, a fridge to keep the beers cold: you can have tons of fun just hanging out in a pub themed man cave.

But there is that one staple everyone needs in a man cave, and that is the Big TV. Everyone wants the Big TV in their man cave but why not go one step further and make it a whole Home Cinema deal? You tend to get plenty of space in a basement, more than you'd get in the garage, and you can use this space to host a small screening with a suitably big TV, enough recliners and a great sound system! Of course, the beauty of doing this in the basement if you'll get natural sound proofing so you don't need to worry too much about the noise!

That advantage translates across quite a few different options; thinking of using the space so you and your old bandmates can practice? Not a problem in the basement man cave. Planning to have a few friends over to watch a game? You won't need to keep it on mute and whisper if you're in the basement. Plus, if you put the bar in from earlier, you won't even need to head upstairs to get the beers! The other flipside of the soundproofing is that it goes both ways- if you need to get away for a bit, the lack of noise from upstairs and the street will be a welcome respite.

If that's not your speed, making it into an underground games room or a workshop/garage deal is also a great option with the extra space you're likely to have compared to the garage or a spare room. With easy access from the house proper and plenty of room to make the space your own whatever your interests, the best place in the house for your man cave is always going to be the basement and, if you need more room, you can always do a bit of expansion. Plus, it's just cooler having your space in a cave under the house. If it's good enough for Batman!

Officers fingering an "innocent" suspect did no crime
The Ultimate Man Cave!

If it was you, not police officers, and you'd drag a woman out of the car, pushed her partially underneath her own car, yanked her pants down, and for the next 11 minutes probed her vagina with your fingers, ignoring her protests, you'd be convicted of assault, sexual assault, among other things.

Cheers! Beer helps to avoid dementia in your old age
The Ultimate Man Cave!

We recently published a story about how beer, or regular alcohol intake, can be good in terms of lowering your risk of developing diabetes. Now there's yet another study, one that was done by University of California, San Diego, that claims that moderate to heavy alcohol drinkers are more likely to reach the age of 85 without developing dementia and related.

Beer is ACTUALLY good for you
The Ultimate Man Cave!

I've personally always looked at beer as healthy thing - after all, it's all water and vitamins, you just need to be careful not to get a vitamin overdose. Yes, I know, I'm weird. But recent studies show that moderate drinking can actually be good for you.
