Everyone has heard the term “man cave,” but mom caves are just as important! While it’s good to have a nice family room to hang out, moms deserve their own space where they can unwind and let their worries go. No kids? No problem. You deserve your lady cave, too!
And remember, if you need more space at home for your mom cave or want to integrate one from the ground-up, check out Bent Creek. Bent Creek is a prestigious gated lakefront community nestled within the charming city of Fort Pierce, Florida. This family-oriented neighborhood along the spectacular Treasure Coast features an amazing collection of amenities, and homesites are oversized and waterfront, making Bent Creek a unique gem in the heart of St. Lucie County.
When you’re ready to create your mom cave, here are few tips to get you started:
Pick A Space
Mom caves can be as simple as an unused closet or an entire room. Choose whatever extra space you have in the home to make your own. If closed quarters are not your thing, try choosing a windowed area to help open up the space or put up mirrors. Even in a small room, windows and mirrors can create the illusion of a bigger space.
Close It Off
Having a door you can close can really help give you the isolated time you need. If doors aren’t a part of the space, room dividers or screens can do the trick. If you wish to close off a corner of a room, a two sided bookshelf is a classy way to create a sectioned off space with decorative storage.
Choose Your Colors
Painting the walls or investing in cute wallpaper is an instant way to transform a space. If you’re not interested in putting in that much effort, sticking to a certain color scheme in your decor is a great way to tie the whole room together. Given the type of space you’re looking to create, research what different colors can help set the mood. Blues and greens are known colors that can give calming vibes. Bright colors, like yellows and pinks, are said to spark creativity, and darker colors, rather than making a space feel smaller, can feel soothing.
Your mom cave really only needs one good chair to make you feel cozy. Choose your seating strategically: seats with soft textures and plush features are better for getting comfy and cozy, while wing-back chairs or ottomans can make you feel cradled. Some women skip on traditional seating and invest in soft rugs and many throw pillows to scatter around the floor for optimal comfort.
Add Your Personality
It’s good to surround yourself with the things you love, whether it’s photos from your favorite vacation or an art piece that inspires you, adding your personal touch will make you never want to leave your space. Be careful not to overdo the amount of decor items you display, as too many can make you feel overwhelmed and the space cluttered. Stick to simple decor and give yourself some good storage to help keep the space clean and calm.
P.S. Don’t forget your “Do not disturb” sign to hang on the door!
