I've been watching those home shows, especially for first time buyers. Not for the buying process, but just to see all the layouts and decor. I have noticed an upswing recently in what men want in a home - "The Man Cave." Usually they want a full finished basement or a massive room with a deck where they can go to unwind, watch TV alone and/or entertain their colleagues. Women have had to give up their preferred home choice with a modern updated kitchen, beautifully designed bathrooms, or huge closets for a home with the Man Cave.
I wondered where I could find the "Woman Cave." Is it the kitchen, the laundry room, the tiny nook where they pay all the bills? I finally saw it on a commercial. The lady of the house was having a time out, wrapped in a fluffy white robe and watching a DVD until she heard the tiny hand knocking. She opened the door and stepped out of her mini van parked in the driveway!
