Have you dreamed of a place where you get away from drama and noise, focus on the game, or simply relax in peace and quiet? A room or a corner in your home devoted to all things manly – commonly known as a “man cave” – is likely just the thing you’re looking for. But how to go about establishing this retreat of masculine leisure?

Here are 5 tips that will send you on your way.

Stake out a room or an area of the house

If you do not already have a man cave, the first step of establishing this area of your home is important. Get together with your spouse and your kids and figure out the room or area that would be the best option. Spare bedrooms, spare sitting or dining rooms and garages are all popular choices. But if you don’t have an entire room, a nook or corner can work just fine, as long as the space is recognized as yours.

Decide upon the focus of your cave

What are your hobbies and interests? Are you a football, basketball or hockey fanatic? Do you like to work on classic cars? Or maybe you’re the crafty type who wants a work table for building models. Whatever your interests are, your man cave should be conducive to helping you foster them. Also, decide whether your man cave will be a solo spot just for you or a gathering place for friends and family.

Establish man cave rules

After your man cave is established but before you start using it, let others know what the “rules” of the space are. For example, are unsupervised kids allowed? What about food? Tell everyone ahead of time what the expectations are and you’ll be a lot happier. After all, it’s your dream!

Research furniture and decor that suit your needs

Once you know what your man cave will be dedicated to – whether it’s entertainment with friends or solo work – and how much space you have, it’s time to focus on furniture and decor. Furnishing a man cave can be a lot of fun, and items such as recliners, large sofas, arcade games or mini-refrigerators will up the ante. But don’t just blindly start purchasing things. Doing your research first will make all the difference to ensure you design a truly great man cave. Understanding the different types of recliners, sectional sofas or beer coolers (if that’s your thing) will help you on your hunt.
