It’s true to say that while Dads aren’t all the same, many of us wouldn’t mind coming together to enjoy some of the same indulgences and hobbies. For instance, talking about classic cars, classic rock, tech, steaks, cigars, well, it all comes with the territory. This isn’t to say everyone enjoys that kind of thing, of course, but with the right introduction and welcoming tone, anyone can bond together over these things, and there’s nothing quite as fun and indulgent as a nerdy Dad who feels room to talk about his interests.
It might be that you wish to get together with your friends more often, or now that your children have flown the nest, make sure that the spare rooms in your property are put to good use. A good investment of your time and energy, then, could involve crafting a Dad space in which you can care for your hobbies without spreading them over the entire house.
In this post, we’ll discuss a few additions, indulgences, and investments you may wish to make in order to get the best out of this space, as well as what value this could add to your life:
Comfort As Necessary
You can’t be blamed for wanting to put your feet up. Having a set of recliners, armchairs with footrests, or just a beautiful and large L-shaped sofa with handy coffee table nearby can provide you that comfort you need, be that to relax in a media room or listen to vinyls without stress. Place a few additions into this room such as an air filter, a cigar humidor humidifier, glass mats, and a classy minifridge you can use for access to great snacks, and you have a worthwhile space going for you.
A Gaming Space
If you enjoy gaming, it can be nice to set up a space you use to relax, enjoy a story, make strategic decisions, or connect with your old gaming pals that have since grown up and started families of their own. A cool front-facing storage unit you can use to place a range of awesome retro collectable consoles in, a place you can store game cartridges, or even space for a restored pinball machine can work wonders, too. Even taking measures like soundproofing the room can prevent your excitement from disturbing anyone else at this time, too.
An Inlaid Bar
A beautiful inlaid bar can be a very nice indulgence, even if you don’t drink that much and just wish to stock your shelf with amazing whiskeys that you taste ever so often as a beautiful indulgence, and something to share with adult members of your family. A bar can provide a comforting place to hang out, to experiment with drinks, to listen to music after a tiring day, and more. It can also be a beautiful fixture in an empty room and considerably raise the value of this space.
With this advice, you’re sure to craft the best indulgences that any Dad would be jealous of you for having.
