Tech Talk – Men Need Their Space Too
It’s a little-known fact that 10,000 years ago, when Prehistoric man first started moving his family into caves for protection, he also sought out a smaller sub-cave that was just for him. A space with his own comfy rock to sit on, with a dedicated hole to let the light in and a big wall he could watch to take his mind off all the stuff on his to do list. Sharpening his rock ax. Fighting. Being asked by his female cave mate to help gather food, look for new animal skins, and for once in his life, take a turn corralling the little homo sapiens. OK, maybe not a fact. But you know it’s true.
The ”Man Cave” has always been a thing. Half a century ago, it was the locker room at the club. The “back” room where cards and cigars were always the order of the day. The bar with multiple TVs to watch the game, the horses, and the golf with the boys. Men have always looked for a place to gather that fully catered to the interests we love. Sports. Music. Movies. Cocktails. Brotherhood. And now, more than ever, men are finding creative and innovative ways to build those dedicated spaces to enjoy time with friends, family, and themselves, in their own homes. The rooms are as personal as the men who build them and without fail, they are the envy of every person who sees them.
“Any time you can build someone’s personality into a living space, you literally transform that room into somewhere they’ll never want to leave,” said Starpower CEO David Pidgeon. “For a company like Starpower at the forefront of luxury and cutting-edge video and audio technology, there’s nothing more exciting for our design team than a request to build the ultimate Man Cave. Unlike I think any other room in the house, that living space is the perfect intersection of everything we do. It’s fun. It’s creative. And the “wow factor” we get at the end is always rewarding.”
Part of what makes Starpower such an extraordinary partner for this kind of build is their experience in taking every kind of room and transforming it into the ultimate personalized space. Whether they’re converting a spare bedroom, a garage, or a dedicated space, Starpower has the design team and technology to bring any Man Cave to life. It’s all about imagination.
“Man Caves are a reflection of their owner, plain and simple,” Pidgeon said. “That’s what makes them so fantastic! Unlike any other room in the house, the purpose of this particular room is to complement the personality of the owner and to illuminate his interests in a way that brings them to life. If you’re the ultimate sports fan, or a movie lover, we have state of the art screens and audio that will have you watching your favorite teams and movies in a whole new way. If you’re a connoisseur of cocktails or wine, we can create the ultimate space to relax in luxury surrounded by your favorite spirits. You could be a card player, a book lover, the ultimate video game warrior… whatever your passions are, we can create a Man Cave that will forever transform the way you enjoy them.”
