How Self Storage lockups are being used as “Man-Caves” on the Kapiti Coast
Enjoyed by the likes of Hollywood heartthrobs, George Clooney and Brad Pitt, the trend of the ‘Man Cave’ is also taking off in the homes of Kiwis. In a recent survey we commissioned, 61% of Kiwi men say they have created their own ‘Man Cave’ in their home.
Why are they creating this space? Over a third (36%) of men say that they are at the end of their tether, from arguing with their partner at least once or twice a week, about the space their possessions take up. All Secure Self Storage in Kapiti have various sizes to meet these requirements.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. 79% of men believe that having a place where they can store their possessions and indulge in their pastimes is actually beneficial to their relationship – this sentiment was mirrored by 60% of women, despite 40% worrying that a ‘Man Cave’ is merely a place for their partner to hoard unnecessary belongings. Check out the security we have at All Secure Self Storage lockers in Kapiti.
Anthony Chenery, Head of Marketing & Ecommerce, says: “With a rise in the number of couples co-habiting, space is more precious than ever and men are demanding a private sanctuary to call their own.”
A leading, counselling psychologist believes that it’s important for men to have their own retreat. She says: “Couples often don’t see eye to eye when it comes to the possessions that take up household space, which leads to tension and arguments. Both men and women can benefit from this time apart. Why? Because this freedom and space is key to a healthy and balanced relationship.”
Men are most likely to use their ‘man space’ to stash books (51%), a TV (34%), comics and magazines (31%), old gadgets (30%) e.g. mobile phone and computers, music collection (29%) and games console/s (26%).
