My daughter has her bedroom decked out with her makeup station, her vanity, her clothes rack and her tech gadgets all within arms length. And then there is my husband. I could go on and on about what decor is ideal for whom, but when it comes to my husband, the question poses itself: what about him?
Creating a man cave is such a fun way to give a nod to Dad and offer him a tailored room for personal space.
Fashion and Function
Don't overwhelm the space with too many bells and whistles the inspiration is, after all, a cave, the most basic of dwellings. Just try and make every piece do double duty, like opting for a luxe looking card table that also works for drinks and snacks. I love the eye-catching design of This old-fashion styled Pulaski Steamer Trunk Cocktail Table exudes a rich, masculine tone.
Crafted from wood in a warm bourbon finish, it is contrasted with faux straps with brass nailhead trim it is Perfect for family game rooms and man caves, and the BEDFORD PROJECT TABLE SET gets smart about storage. It has ample storage space for DVDs, magazines, remote controls, and other loose items. Its Espresso finish is made of kiln-dried maple wood and veneer and it wins in my book with its spacious, organized workspace for all your man's creative endeavors.
Seek out furniture with built-in storage, like footstools with removable tops, to continue the functionally fashionable trend. And don't forget to let your man plaster his man cave with his favorite Die Hard 2 posters.
