After a long day at work, your man probably longs for a space to call his own: A Man Cave. Contrary to popular belief, a man cave isn’t just a space with a sofa and a huge TV. Your man’s cave should be as special as he is. Here are some ideas for a stylish and comfortable space for your husband.
Get the mood lighting right
The right lighting can enhance the look and feel of a man cave. Lower light levels, combined with dark walls, make for a more relaxed and subdued ambiance. For a warm and fun-looking space, use brighter lights with points of interest, such as an accent wall. Choose light sources that match your man’s personality, whether funny or serious.
Add some cabinets and shelves
If your man is a collector, he’ll definitely be needing some shelf space for his books, records, or other collectibles. A modular cabinet set or wall shelves are great for men who want to customize their space.
Comfy seats are key
Whether he’s watching a sports game, having a movie marathon with buddies, or taking a reading break, your man needs to be comfortably seated. Consider getting him his own electric recliner or a sofa set big enough for him and his best buds.
Install a Mini Bar
A Mini Bar is a sophisticated addition in any home, man cave or not. Before setting one up, decide what kind of bar you want — front, corner, hidden or folding? Make sure the size is just right if you plan to add barstools and add some art for a cool, edgy feel.
Personalize the man cave
Add some items or furniture that highlights your husband’s personality to make his man cave not just comfortable but unique. This can be anything, from wallpaper in his shade, to statement pieces that are trademark him.
