The man cave is no longer an abandoned spot down in the basement, the trend nowadays is to create man caves with the help of interior designers, to recreate familiar spaces like favorite restaurants or bars.
A simple refrigerator, TV and old pieces of furniture won’t work.
Today’s man caves need kitchenette with cabinets, dishwasher, microwave, wine refrigerator, big screen TV, advanced stereo system, wet bar/bar stools, seating, put table as well as the classic favorites like pool table, poker table, neon signs, game systems, darts and sports memorabilia.
The newest request for man caves is soundproofing, secret doors, panel walls and streaming media devices like Apple TV, Roku, etc. The addition of ceiling lights, industrial and or repurposed materials make these spaces brighter and less cluttered.
All kind of repurposed materials are being used as part of the décor, like vintage car seats, galvanized pipes, old wood panels attached to walls or ceiling, empty beer kegs, wood barrels etc. Man caves are fun places to display unique men collections, from glass shots, beer bottles, helmets to big items like bikes, guns and hunting trophies.
Make it sophisticated, vintage or sporty, no matter the size, create your own space to relax and or share with your friends, DIY or hire a professional, there are lots of budget friendly ideas too, sites exclusively created to help built and customized a man cave, look for more ideas in Pinterest.
