Man Caves vs. Mom Caves? Not so much…

So we’ve been talking about the “Man Cave” over the past week or so.  We have colors, accessories, etc., but what about the “Woman Cave”?

The concept of the man cave is to define that personal space somewhere in the house where guys can be guys and enjoy “guy” things.  So what about that “woman cave” or the trending “mom cave”?  First off, the name “woman cave” doesn’t fly to well at all and I’ll be honest, “cave” isn’t very appealing to me either plus not all women are moms.  How about we erase the gender-based taglines and just focus on calling these spaces in our homes, Personal Spaces. 

Creating a Personal Space is all about creating a space or an environment for you or you and your family to enjoy activities that make you happy.  When it comes to the logic of defining that perfect space in your home based on gender, the lines are often blurred much more than people associate.  Focusing on that special space to do the things that you enjoy or escape from the everyday helps you create a better, more personalized room.

Over the next several weeks, we will be sharing some great ideas, colors, accessories and more for your very own Personal Space.  But first, we want to know what types of Personal Spaces you want us to cover.  Tell us what kind of Personal Space you have in your home or you want to learn more about creating.

Make your choices below and my team and I will cover the top five Personal Spaces that you choose over the next few weeks here in one of our new blog post series:

  1. I live in a two bedroom mobile home. In the spare room I made it a computer,library,sewing and Doll Room. I have a large collection of Bridget Leman Dolls. I love to sew and bought a arrow sew more craft table, also use the table for my Cri Cut machine. It is very friendly to using small spaces as it folds up when not in use. I have my irioning board using a over the door hook. My desktop and printer live on my glass top comptuter table I found in Staples. Bookshelfs hold my books and my dolls are on shelfs.

  2. Everybody needs their own space, and I personally like the “Lady Lounge” name by Joe. Lady Lounge and Man Cave work for everyone.

    Darren, do you really think that Michelle who commented on the “Man Cave” page will really appreciate your interpretation of the women cave which you rightly state does not make sense. Please think long and hard about this marketing campaign, and follow your own advice by getting rid of “gender-based taglines” you are losing customers.

    Moreover, it is not difficult to recognize your man cave cover doing its best to cater to two audiences. The “lonely” room with a leather couch and large screen tv and the other, smaller, image of the engaged father and grandfather… I wonder who these images are far? You could treat men and women a lot better.

        Really? In this day and age to find that there are still women burning bras over something this silly is just ridiculous. I am a man. I want my space. My wife has hers as well. She calls it her ‘Lady’s Lounge’. Should I be upset at the sexism in that name? Nope. You arent losing customers over these articles.
