The “man cave” trend is one for the ages, and one that shows no sign of slowing down. All over the world, men are turning their basements, attics, sheds, and garages into sanctuaries they can call their own. Guy Solomon, owner of Penguin Basements, has had plenty of experience in designing the ultimate man cave based on the available space, interests, budget, and more. |
A man cave is a designated area inside a home designed by and for the man of the house. The idea is to use this space for his leisure and hobbies. The same site goes on to say that the first use of the term “man cave” was in 1992, though the actual trend only took off in the early 2000s. Hundreds of websites sell decorations, clever gadgets, and more for these spaces, but homeowners are often hard-pressed to find a contractor who truly understands their overall visions. This is where Penguin Basements really shines.
Guy Solomon and his crew are basement specialists. Unlike other home repair and renovation contractors, they focus only on this area of the home. According to their website, the company builds 200 basements per year. Throughout his career, Guy Solomon has seen an increase in the number of man cave requests, lending to the overall popularity of this trend.
Penguin Basements starts with the basics. The company first inspects the structure of the basement, including things like grade, plumbing, electrical work, and even HVAC placement before suggesting a design based on their client’s vision. Then, the designers create up to three unique concepts based on the man cave vision, allowing the client to view them in virtual 3D. Finally, the client can choose everything from paint colors to finishes to fixtures in the Design Centre, or they can provide their own.
Homeowners toying with the idea of converting their basements into man caves can contact Penguin Basements to get some ideas and estimates for their ideas. When budgeting is a concern, the company offers financing with pocket-friendly payment options. Consumers can find reviews of the company’s work on sites like Homestars.com, Yelp, Google+, and n49.
