There’s always one room of the house that people jokingly refer to as “the man cave.” Women have so much weight on their shoulders down to worrying about even the smallest of things but very rarely do they have a woman cave or a place that they can escape to. Women are very worthy of having their own space, so the popularity of woman caves should increase.
Women take care of the kids, run the majority of the errands, take care of their husbands, and worry about every small detail that would slip the mind. As women, we deserve a place that we can escape to for calmness, creativity, and relaxation.

Hiring the Right Interior Designer For the Job
If this is a project that you can’t complete on your own and need some help with, hiring the right person for the job is very important if you want to make sure you’re getting the right design. After making a set budget and room for your space, you may need to hire someone who is experienced with contracting or interior design. As you’re trying to select the right person, take a look at a few things that each could provide to make your selection.
Their portfolio: Whenever I’m hiring someone for a job, I like to see some of the past work that they can provide as a reference. It’s good to have a visual of their past jobs just to see what you could be working with.
Customer reviews: While it’s great to go over customer reviews to see how great they may be at the job, I’ve learned in the past that many people don’t flock to websites to give the majority of good reviews. Many reviews are to leave a complaint so take it with a grain of salt.
Experience: Research how long they’ve been in the business and how much experience they have in the work you are selecting for them to do.
Education: Ask to see their educational background.

Sports themes don’t always have to be for men. This is a great way to design your woman cave with furnishings and decor from your favorite sports teams.
Finding the right amount of space for your cave can be difficult, especially if you’re working with smaller square footage. Most people don’t have extra rooms available to even make a woman cave, but with some creativity, you can use an existing space for your personal space.
The first thing you’ll want to do is check if you have any spare rooms available. This could even include a shed outside. Why not turn your shed into a she-shed? Sheds can make for great woman caves and productive settings. If you don’t already have electricity in your she-shed, you can opt to get battery-powered lighting options, or you could even use an extension cord that runs from your shed to your home. Put up some lights and pick a great shade of paint, and your shed could be transformed in no time!
As shown in the inspiration ideas above, you can even turn one of your walk-in closets into a woman cave. You can keep it as a closet or completely turn it into another idea. Some walk-in closets can be small, but could also prove to be just the right amount of space to give you a cozy feeling a gorgeous place of relaxation.
Some men choose to use their garages as man caves, why can’t you use yours as a woman cave? Garages can be easily transformed into a beautiful space with paint, shelving, and decor. If you don’t already use your garage for your car or extra boxes, why not turn it into a place of comfort.
Once you have chosen the designated space for your woman cave, you can start looking to decorate and furnish. The majority of homeowners can’t afford to completely remodel their rooms. If you can that’s great, but if you can’t you can still achieve what you’re looking for with a fresh shade of paint.
You can hang pictures that give outdoor vibes, inspirational quotes, or other artwork you enjoy. I love boho decor so that would be my go-to decor. Get a diffuser and your favorite essential oils to give a fresh blended scent. If you want warm lighting you can get table lamps. Make your space your own and design it however you’d like.
Whatever seating options you choose for your woman cave, you’ll want to make sure your seating is comfortable. Women are all about comfort so it is very important to have. Create a comfortable seating space where you can read quietly or take naps.
You can choose a couch or lounging chair with added pillows that will take you right into the mode of relaxation. Make sure you have plenty of light next to your seating area so you can read a book in perfect view.
Tables and Desks
If you want to make a woman cave as a workspace or a space for crafting, make sure you have picked out the right size table or desk. For your workspace, you’ll want a flat surface. Decorate your space with fresh flowers, diffusers, or other accent pieces. Whatever you decide, make sure your space is one that you’ll feel comfortable in when doing something that you love.
Carpet or Area Rugs
One last addition you’ll want to consider adding is carpet or area rugs. Depending on your space, adding this can increase the appeal of your room in an instant. If you have beautiful hardwood flooring, adding an area rug with a beautiful design could be your go-to. If you have old flooring and want to warm up your space that is already chilly, a soft carpet would be a great selection.
The best thing about a woman cave is that it’s yours and you can design exactly the way you want it without any outside opinions. It’s your space and your design. Be creative, have fun, and don’t stress about what you are creating. Keep your woman cave separate from the business of everyday life. Whatever stresses you out, leave it out of your woman cave.
Being a mom, working, paying bills…those things can be overwhelming so we need a space to escape. Let your woman cave reflect the beauty that you want. For as many things as women juggle, self-care is a very important part of our lives, and we’ll find that our families can manage on their own for a bit.
