You can have so much fun decorating a man cave. A project like this offers a lot of possibilities. Let’s say you decorate a bachelor pad, a separate casita, or a basement. Think about all the themes you can choose from, and all the gadgets and fun features designed to make you happy. You can be very bold when decorating a man cave and the whole project is a great way to express and manifest your personality. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Use shelves to display your collections and memorabilia. This is a really simple way to personalize the space and to display the things that make you happy.

What kind of a man cave doesn’t have a bar, right? Well, although it isn’t absolutely necessary to have one in order to feel awesome in your basement, a bar is definitely a great feature. It doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be there.

Every room needs a focal point and in the case of a bachelor pad or any other kind of man cave, sometimes it should be a bit more striking than a simple coffee table or wall painting. Actually, it can be something as awesome as a car.

Speaking of cars, if you have a nice collection then your man cave can showcase them all. You can design everything else around them or they can stay in an annex with glass walls so you can see them from the adjacent rooms.

Car-themed decors are pretty common, yet they don’t always have to include actual cars. Another option is to have something that was built from a car part, like a desk for example.

Not everyone finds the same things fun or interesting. So, if you’re not a fan of playing sports but you like being a spectator and a collector, this can be reflected in your man cave décor through things like a huge monitor to watch the games on or framed memorabilia on the walls.

For a man cave, pick furniture that’s robust, simple and that has straight lines and angles. Leave the soft curves and smooth lines to the ladies. Sleek leather armchairs or bold iron furniture may fit the bill.

However you envision your man cave, there is an internet full of inspiration to help you pull it off! Now, go get to work!
