We all know that man caves are “in,” but what about mom caves? Moms need some relaxing time alone and it pays off to have a nice, elegant and luxurious place where you can unwind.
Pretty neat thought, huh?
It is important when you start to design your mom cave that you think about the layout of the room. Since you do not want your space to look like a typically beer and sports man cave, you need to think a bit about how you want to decorate it and the elements that you will use to bring the whole idea together.
Below, we will go over some things that you need to consider when redesigning your den and creating a beautiful look.
1. Lighting the Room
If you do not have any natural lighting sources in the room you plan to you use, you will need to add artificial lighting and this is one of the most important steps. The lighting you choose should highlight the beauty of the room, but also be functional so that you can see clearly.
Having an option to brighten or dim the room works well and allows you to adjust your lighting as needed.
2. Artwork Enhances the Beauty
Artwork enhances the beauty of your mom cave and can be inspirational when you want to just sit back and think. The artwork you choose should match the room’s mood and theme.
For example, if you have blue hues in your furniture, you may want to choose artwork that draws the blue color out.
3. Wall Color
The color of the walls should be light and playful. Choosing a color that is too dark can bring down the mood and also make the room appear darker.
4. Choose Your Features Wisely
Not all features are ideal for your luxury mom cave and you need to really think about the features that you want. For instance, do you want a small nook to read in? Do you want a comfortable chair with a huge ottoman to put your feet up? Or, maybe you want a large television to watch the latest soap opera when you get a chance.
You can choose any features you want, but remember, for the room to slow smoothly with design, you should choose features that complement each other.
