Man Cave Ideas For Creating The Perfect Luxury Space
Man caves don't have to be drab. Check out these doable ideas for the perfect man cave!
A home theater.
Unique amenities can really make a home luxurious. And a home theater is definitely a unique amenity that one can implement into a man cave.
A home theater renovation seems like quite the steep idea, but a home theater can be quite basic too. All you really need is the following:
- A projector screen or large television
- A projector or cable connections
- A DVD player or internet connection
- Good lighting
- Sound system
Not too crazy, right? A home theater system is one of the best man cave ideas one can consider when it comes to luxury.
Base the space around one object.
Do you (or the man in question) have a particular object or furnishing that you really like? Make it your inspiration for the theme of the room.
Whether this object is a piece of art, a pool table or a gaming system, you can definitely build a theme around it. This way, you'll have a solid direction to go in when the renovation begins.
If you don't have a particular object that you think would work for a man cave theme, there are quite a few popular themes to choose from, including:
- Mountains, log cabins or nature in general
- The classic old-school study
- Contemporary and city themes
- Safari or hunting
- Western or cowboy themes
- The "Captain’s Quarters" theme, i.e. nautical
- Music and specific time periods
- Hollywood and specific time periods
- Roman, Greek, or any other particular culture
Don't be afraid to get super out there-- it's your man cave, it should have some of the man's personal flair to it.
Man cave meets bar.
Not every man cave has a bar, but adding a bar to a man cave can add a cozy, relaxed feel to the space. Since we're talking luxury here, a simple bar might not do the space justice. Opting for a unique bar shape with ample bar seating, can take the space from ordinary to extraordinary.
Adding a bar can improve your property value, as well.
