About This Quiz

It's hard to say who may have coined the term "man cave," but it certainly hit the mainstream back in 1993 when John Gray published his book "Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus." The basic idea was a simple enough one — a man needs a sanctuary. A place that is wholly his and not influenced by the women in his life. Now, whether or not that's really something a man needs is immaterial. Designing your own room just with the things you love in it is cool, no matter who you are or why you're doing it. If it's a man cave, so be it. It's fun, and that's what really matters when it comes to doing something like this.

When you have a family or a significant other, then it's true you should compromise on your living space so it appeals to both of you. But if a room is only your room, then you go all out and make it your room. Whether you have one for real or you just dream of it now's your chance to design the best of the best. Lay out your preference, and we'll even be able to tell what your favorite NBA team is. Give it a try!
