  • Find the perfect spot: There is one important factor when choosing an area for your "mom cave": a door. A closed off space is vital to creating a quiet, calm space, and will make family members think twice before entering mom's zone. If a spare room isn't available, there may be a large closet that can turn into a cozy nook. If all else fails, pick a remote corner away from the buzz of family activity. A handmade sign reminding the kids that you're relaxing also can do wonders.
  • Add style with sleek furniture: Once the perfect space is selected, it's time to decorate the room to match your style.
