Home Remodel Dallas Trends Part 4: The Flexible Garage (aka Man Cave)
Garages today are being seen more as functional space of the house, rather than just as parking. We are more likely to see them performing as workshops, rec rooms, pantries, craft rooms, or its most popular current interpretation, the man cave.
In a 2009 study, 40% of homeowners said that their home already had a man cave and another 13% said a man cave is either in the planning stage or in the process of being built. The dude retreat is definitely one of the most popular ideas for garage remodeling Dallas. This study did not even scratch the service of the many types of garage remodels we see, tending towards recreation and retreat space not only for the man of the house, but whichever members need to withdraw from the bustle of integrated common spaces of the modern home. No matter what, we see that functional living space is the trend for garages, whether this looks like man cave, mom cave, geek cave, hobbyist space, or kid’s indoor playground. Modern families believe that every space must have function, and the garage offers a wealth of remodeling possibilities.
