Your man cave can be so much more than just a room with couches and a TV. Think of it as a space where you can express your personal style using items that are both functional and comfortable for your needs. How you choose to theme and decorate the room is entirely up to you. The possibilities are endless, so this article will help narrow down some essential decor tips to help you get started.

Location, location, location

The first and most important consideration you should make is where your man cave will be. Your choices are dependent on the type of open spaces available in your home. There are many ways to get creative with a garden shed, an extra garage or even a small, unused room within the house. As long as it has the potential to be your personal paradise, anything goes.

Choosing a theme

This is the best part of your man cave decoration process because you have free reign to go as eccentric or minimal as you like. Whether you enjoy sports, music or art, this is the perfect space to go all out on the things that make you feel happy and comfortable. So, gather all the memorabilia and knick knacks you have stored in your cupboards, and give them a place where they’ll be the focus of the room.

Furnishing your man cave

Once you’ve settled on your theme, you can determine what type of furniture will suit your space. From big, comfy recliner couches, to bar carts and TVs, it’s all about creating a harmonious environment that will help you blow off some steam after a long day.

Your man cave should be the ultimate expression of your personality – so really show who you are by furnishing your man cave with custom made furniture that speaks to your soul, creating that perfect escape. From concept to creation, Design and Décor Lab will be here to guide you through this process of creating your ideal man cave.

There’s beauty in balance

So now that you’ve settled on a location, theme and furnishing, it’s time to put it all together to create your ultimate man cave. Don’t worry if the accessories you’ve chosen seem a little mismatched, this is where the true creativity comes in. It’s in the way you place and style everything that will give your space an aesthetic edge.

It’s okay to ask for help

Lastly, if you’re stuck and don’t know where to begin, ask for help. While the space will be entirely inspired by your personal style, asking someone with years of interior decoration expertise to assist you could elevate your ideas to the next level.
