How To Pick The Best Man Cave Decor
So, you’re ready to start decorating your man cave, eh?
Congratulations! We’re excited for you. We have some tips to help you turn any room into a cozy personal space to relax and hide away from the world. It will be a home for all your sports memorabilia, gaming equipment, and other hobbies that make you who you are.
Here is how to pick the best man cave decor:
1. Select a Theme
Popular modern themes for the man cave favor an industrial look featuring wood and metal. These materials look amazing, are durable and flexible enough to accommodate a myriad of needs. Avoid using too much glass as it’s too fragile. You can also go with any of the other popular home decor themes.
2. Choose Your Colors
Go with a light shade of blue, brown, or green. Steer clear of darker hues especially if you’re working with a small space. This is because the room will seem smaller than it really is. Use dark colors for accents instead. You can have these colors on wooden trim, decorative elements, and borders.
3. Pick the Right Furniture
A man cave shouldn’t have too many pieces of furniture. Pick one piece and make it the focal point of the room. For this, you can go with a tastefully designed sofa. Throw in two or three other smaller pieces of furniture to complete the picture. A bookcase, coffee table, and end table would come in handy. You don’t need a credenza. Instead, hang your TV on a wall-mounted bracket. We advise that you go for furniture with in-built storage. This will help you save on space and keep clutter at bay.
4. Showcase Your Collectibles and Sports Memorabilia
This is the only room in the house where you can express your love for sports. You can display your collectibles and memorabilia prominently on walls or in large cabinets. You might want to avoid displaying them on cabinets if you’re short on space. Also, showcase a few of your pieces, preferably your favorites, to avoid making the space feel cluttered.
5. Use Lighting Creatively
Use lighting to add some flair to your man cave. You can find plenty of decorative lighting fixtures that complement your theme. Go with a single, bold lighting fixture or inter space tastefully designed lamps throughout the room.
