It’s the room that dreams are made of for the man of the house. A perfect Man cave is a place for relaxing and pursuing hobbies unfettered by too much design and décor.  The elements that make the Man cave will ultimately be decided by the personality of the man of the house. Here are some ideas to start with, but each man will likely be unique and the space will be a reflection of that.

 

1. Movie-signs or posters

Nice framed movie posters of any favorite movies create a home theatre environment and are a great way to define the space as an entertaining den.Movie-signs or posters

8. Masculine colour-scheme

Dark woods and palettes will be the basis for the space. The space will likely not include any of the touches you would expect in the rest of the home like accent colours, throw pillows or draperies. This is a simple space where a man can spend his time pursuing the simple pleasures.Masculine colour-scheme
