For Women Who Want Some Peace and Quiet: Mom Caves

So a “man cave,” as defined by Wikipedia, is a “male sanctuary, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, media room, den, or basement.” A Google Image Search for “man cave” brings up good examples. So how there’s no Wikipedia entry for “woman cave”? Try doing an Image Search and you get images of cave women.

Finally, interior designers like New York’s Elaine Griffin are creating not “women caves” but “mom caves.” Sure, the idea is a little silly, but why shouldn’t mothers have a room for their own? In general, mothers need alone time the most.

When I was a kid, my father had a study that was built specifically for him. It was more or less a man cave. But now that I think about it, my mother had no space designated just for her. Seems unfair, now that I think about it.

To the mom cave!

Should women have a mom cave in their homes?

    Yeah Sure, almost every single member of the family have their own space and the mother always have to share LOL, is true, the mother always have to give everything and nothing is for her and is very selfish for the other members of the family. She sacrifice everything for their so she desert that and more !

    Yes, definitely. Being a mom is hard work, we all need a place to relax and gather our thoughts.

    That is a funny thing that your google search brought up images of cave women.

    Since I'm a single mom, my whole house is my cave!

    i'm working on my bedroom as we speak- some artwork, a new duvet, a mobile on the ceiling. i was tired of the toy and tool takeover in the rest of the house! i need something soft and inviting.

    This issue is irritating to me, cause 'man' caves are all full of electronics and fun stuff, but for moms it's supposed to be all about relaxing? What the heck is that all about? Is that became men like to play like little kids all the while mom is doing the work? Enough of the sexism already, I love cool stuff too! If I could have a mom cave it would have a bar in it at least, and a huge tv and a killer stereo system and some posters of hot singers on the walls, oh ya! :D

    Most people think that the kitchen are mom caves which is SO wrong! I think there should be mom caves. A nice place to have a cup of tea and read a good book away from family pressures.

    An additional issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time greatest forms of fun for people of every age group. Kids participate in video games, plus adults do, too. The XBox 360 is probably the favorite games systems for folks who love to have a lot of games available to them, as well as who like to relax and play live with other individuals all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

    Thanks for this article. I will also like to express that it can often be hard when you find yourself in school and just starting out to initiate a long credit ranking. There are many pupils who are only trying to make it and have long or beneficial credit history can occasionally be a difficult factor to have.
