For Personal Space, Cabana is Top Banana

“Personal space” is a term that’s so much a part of today’s vernacular that it has become a cliché. There’s nothing unusual about that; people are always grabbing onto expressions, then using them ad nauseum. The amazing thing is how quickly a term can go from being unheard of, to being a cliché. In this case, however, maybe it does make sense. After all, these days, things are happening faster and faster. The dizzying pace is causing a lot of stress that was also unheard of until fairly recently. This new brand of stress is much harder to handle. That, in turn, is making people desperate for a place to escape from it all, or, as they say, “personal space.”

It’s not that wanting to “just be alone for awhile,” the less urgent reference of days gone by, is anything new. However, until the later part of the 20th century, people were content to simply have a room to themselves for an hour or two, where they could do some reading, or work on a hobby. Sometimes, the really lucky ones would have a den, but they were the exceptions. If things got serious, there were those who would tear down a wall and add a room, but that was usually out of necessity, as in the case of a family that was outgrowing its house, and needed another bedroom for the kids.

Today, we want it all. We want our houses, our jobs, our cars, our cell phones, our computers, and our Internet. We want to be connected to the whole world 24 hours a day, and still, somehow, we want our privacy. Go figure. Can we really, reasonably expect to have all of this? One trend indicates that we can! It’s the wave of the future, which, for any of you who haven’t been paying attention, just happens to be now (and that just goes to show you how fast everything really is happening!). It’s the 21st Century Cabana Craze!

Now appearing in backyards near you, cabanas are becoming as numerous as garages. One reason for its popularity is that a cabana can be anything, or it can be everything, including an extra room, a home office, a guest house, a cottage, or a home spa, complete with a hot tub.
