The man cave –be it a retreat, a game room, a bar, a hideaway or a trophy room– is a coveted cranny every man wants in his home. When it comes to creating a space that your guy will love, the possibilities are endless! Let these inspiring spaces serve as your guide to creating a man cave with swagger.
Can you imagine having a hidden passageway leading to the ultimate hangout? It doesn’t get much cooler than this secret door designed by Adam Hunter.
Make his space stand out by giving the walls a pick me up! One of our favorite rising trends at Mohawk Home is using laminate on the walls to achieve the look of natural wood. It’s a simple and affordable DIY project that adds a lot of character, too.
You can also use chalkboard paint to create a larger-than-life scoreboard for his favorite games, like this one from the Royal Fashionist.
A man cave should be a cool extension of your man’s personality. Whether he is a fisherman at heart or a baseball fanatic, be sure to create a theme that best represents his tastes.
We love how this man cave blends work and play using a sleek desk and comic book character accents.
The ‘drive in theater’ has a whole new meaning. This space by the Weber Design Group is nothing short of AH-MAZING and could double as a rustic man cave for the car lover.
There is nothing quite like seeing your favorite team’s name up in lights, even if it is from the comfort of your own home. This room is what man cave dreams are made of–mixing baseball and old school arcade games for a space that is as stylish as it is fun.
Don’t forget to designate an area for a Mad-Men style bar cart to hold his favorite glasses and drinks.
