MAN caves are becoming incredibly popular.
So much so that more than 1,000 blokes entered a recent competition hoping to be crowned owner of the best one.
Both men and women are turning their spare space into a smart gaming room or beauty hideaway.
Fancy making your own special space? Here’s where to start . . .
TAKE A SEAT: Think about what kind of seat you want. Bean bags are great and currently you can get a grey high-back bean bag and matching footstool for £39.99 on Amazon, slightly cheaper than a similar set sold on wayfair.co.uk for £42.99. If you are after something a little more luxurious, The Range has a beautiful blush ice velvet stool for £19.99, perfect for your beauty corner.
SAVE: £3 by shopping at Amazon
LIGHT IT UP: Poundland has a great range of fairy lights including red berry bulbs for £1 that would look perfect hung up around the space. For something more out there, why not try a neon sign? Amazon has a lip-shaped neon sign for £9.99 that is sure to add glamour to your space and is cheaper than a similar one sold on Trouva for £50.
SAVE: £40.01 by shopping at Amazon
GO, GO, GADGET: What you fill your space with is up to you — maybe a gaming monitor, laptop, PlayStation, or beauty devices. I have found some great discounted TVs on AO.com; you can grab a 32in Toshiba Smart TV for just £198, down from £229. In a small space it will feel like you are at the cinema and it even comes with Netflix.
OWN IT: Last but not least, your hideaway is not complete without a statement sign on the door. On personalisedgiftshop.co.uk you can buy a wooden man cave sign for £6.95, or on Etsy you can snap up a shabby chic personalised wooden plaque for £4.99. It is slightly cheaper and gives you more freedom with your design.
Deal of the day
HEAD to Wowcher for Love Island goodies such as a personalised island-inspired water bottle for £7.99, usually £22.99.
ICELAND’S melt in the middle brownies are now £1.50, down from £3. I know what I will be having in front of the telly tonight.
KEEP your glow with Aldi’s Lacura Snapshot Ready Glow primer for £5.99. It is a lot cheaper than similar NYX Professional Born to Glow primer, £12.50 from Boots.
Shop and save
A THREE-POT Tower slow cooker is £29, down from £39.99 at B&M – perfect for those winter warming meals.
