6 Man Cave Ideas for Your BasementAugust 15, 2018
The basement is a great place to retreat from the other parts of the house, and it is a place that you can alter to your specifications. Enter the man cave. Man caves are places to be alone, to indulge in hobbies, and to hang out with friends.
They are also a great way to turn a previously dark and unused space in your home into a fun place to enjoy, relax, or entertain. Additionally, turning an unfinished basement or basement in desperate need of a remodel into a functional space will add value to your home. Here are some ideas on how to create your perfect man cave.
One fantastic strategy to create a more inviting basement area is to install a basement bar. This is your chance to show off your own personal style. If your taste is elegant and classic, then you may want to consider a dark wood bar with a marble or granite countertop and leather-wrapped stools. Line bar shelving with glasses and top shelf liquor. Consider adding a sink and a small refrigerator so you will have everything you need to crack open a cold beer and build a sandwich.
Adding some rec room type games such as a pool table or air hockey table can give a basement remodel a spacious and open feel to relax and enjoy. Add some traditional man cave touches like comfy overstuffed furniture and a big screen TV. Men love competition, and activities such as pool, darts, arcade games, and poker bring the contest into the space. And don’t forget the latest video gaming system!
This man cave basement focuses around a projection screen or extra large screen TV. You might want to consider cabinetry that will wrap from one side of the screen underneath to the other side. No doubt you will also want to install a killer sound system. This also provides ample room for the elaborate surround system that will inevitably be installed. This room can be as simple as a flat-screen TV and a and comfy furniture to a full theater room with leather recliners, a popcorn maker, a large screen and an overhead projector.
