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
2. Sports memorabilia
Find a way to proudly display any sports memorabilia that the man of the home collects or decorate to celebrate a favorite sports team. Think display cases for signed baseballs or framed hockey jerseys.
3. Bar area
4. Entertainment area
This will be the gathering spot and may include a large TV or TV’s for sporting events or movies. Of course, no entertainment area is complete without a good sound system to provide surround sound and perhaps a gaming system or two.
Incorporate any hobbies into the space by proudly displaying equipment, artwork, books or ornaments. Think fishing rods, pictures or large catches or fish sculptures, guitars mounted on the wall, model cars, motorcycles or automotive themed décor.
6. Comfortable seating
While it seems common sense that seating should be comfortable for the Man cave, it is a practical piece of advice as a lot of time will be spent there are one would want to be comfortable when relaxing with friends or family. Think comfy and casual sofas or leather reclining chairs.
7. Games Area
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.
9. Record/Music collection
