Building The Perfect Man Cave…

So, now that we’ve got the definition out of the way, let’s talk about designing. How do you style the perfect space that represents everything manly? First step: color. Color sets the tone for any room, so think of colors that represent what mood you want to convey. Try staying away from bright colors. Although they may be more inviting, they can also be very intimidating to the average man. So with that being said, neutral and earth tone colors such as dark blues, reds, browns, greens or beige are always the way to go, as these colors are more relaxing and calming. Imagine coming home after a long day of work and walking into a dimly lit room, putting your feet up and having an ice cold beer or drink.  It gets the job done every time.

Here are a few examples of some well designed man caves…
