Have you ever dreamed of creating your very own “woman cave”?
Men often have a place in their home or outdoor space where they feel most comfortable and free. They label it…. “their man cave”. Why is a woman’s personal space not addressed in the same fashion? Here are some great ideas on how to turn your patio into a “woman cave”. It’s time you claim your own space that can provide a personal sense of serendipity and comfort.
Making it Personal
The key to having a relaxing space is making it personal. It is important to bring a piece of yourself into your surroundings. It can be as simple as your favorite color palette or as intricate as a large statement piece that brings you joy. Add accessories that bring out a part of your personality. Remember, the key to your patio “woman cave” is that it represents the things that bring you a feeling of comfort and warmth.
Make the Light Right
Having the perfect lighting is essential for creating a relaxing feeling in any indoor or outdoor space. If you are focusing on your patio space, candles are a great accent. Candles can bring a feeling of tranquility to your environment. Adding whimsical lights scattered around your space is another welcome addition. You can also create sparkling wall patterns with fairy lights, if your outdoor space is enclosed. However you choose to brighten your space, adding different types of lighting creates a cozy, outdoor space for that evening ME time.
Storing Your Cozies
Weather proof storage is a great idea for sheltering your cozy essentials. Storage no longer has to be an eyesore. There are great ways for you to add storage to your outdoor space without it looking out of place or bulky. Trunks, benches, or small cabinets can be used to hold your patio evening essentials. Cozy blankets, huggable pillows, and warm slippers are also a fantastic addition. Make your “woman cave” an optimal place to curl up with a book and a glass of wine after a long day.
However you choose to create your space, the one thing to remember is to make it 100% YOU. The idea of a “woman cave” patio is all about letting your hair down and being unapologetic about your comfort and relaxation. Sometimes, all we need is a space where we don’t answer to anyone but ourselves and can enjoy the feeling of tranquility, so we can rejuvenate and recharge.
