Man cave ideas – to create the ideal den for working, entertaining and relaxing

Man cave ideas can turn under-used spaces into dedicated hideaways that you don’t have to go to the man-cave shed at the bottom of the garden to access. The room you choose for your man cave depends on how you – or your man – want to use the space. Do you fancy creating a home office for working from home, library, dining room, TV, or games room? Do you want to convert a conservatory or make use of a cellar or basement?

First things first, decide if your man cave will be for work, rest, or play – or a bit of each. Perhaps you’d like to be able to use the space to work from home, but would also like it to be useable when you fancy a break from work too. Maybe you want a relaxing bolt-hole away from the hubbub of the rest of the house, or like the idea of a broader man cave entertaining space that you can use with friends. The beauty is, with a bit of imagination there’s a man cave idea to suit all rooms.

Man cave ideas

Create a man-cave entertainment hub with wall-mounted TV or home cinema and seating designed for relaxed easy viewing. And what about including a man-cave bar and – of course – man-cave signs? How you use your man cave will suggest color schemes and textures while personal preference will determine the feel and ambiance.

Let these fabulous man cave ideas be the starting point for your dream den…

1. Set up a slick home office

Make your home office feel like the chicest spot in town. Paint the room white to provide the perfect blank canvas, then look for pieces that will invigorate and inspire you: modern streamlined desks and seating, clean-lined organized storage, and decorative artwork. Even a small home office like this one can be a high functional room with the right design process. These fabulous swivel chairs add a classic office design, but thanks to the chic wood veneer that says ‘style’ more than purely functional. Handsome and practical, win-win.

Channeling your inner art collector? Frameless and versatile, canvas prints can be hung on your walls or showcased on a flat surface. There’s just something about the canvas that feels so much artier. Canvas prints available in three sizes.

2. Set the tone with darker shades

Create a cocooning effect with dark toning shades and rich natural materials. Make a small room feel all-encompassing by painting all walls, including the ceiling, with rich dark colours. This approach to colour will create an ambience that’s ideal for total escapism – step inside the room, shut the door and feel like the rest of the house is totally detached. Escape here to do work, watch movies or simply enjoy some timeout.

That’s just math. Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

3. Create a comfy entertainment hub

Give the room one main purpose and anchor the interior around it. If the room is all about watching movies in supreme comfort ensure the screen takes pride of place. Make the TV the star in an entertainment-hub man cave.

In this space, bespoke wooden cabinetry has been used to create a feature wall that functions to frame the set and center the furnishings – while also providing ample storage. A smart corner sofa in mid blue creates a comfy sitting area, while a large pouf doubles up as a footrest-cum- coffee table. The combination of muted shades creates a relaxed feel.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush, and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

4. Adopt a theme

Use a touch of colour throughout your man cave and bring a sophisticated edge to a room scheme. In this compact space, the colour scheme runs throughout, from the built-in desk and tv wall cabinets to the choice of sofa fabric and wall colour. This design aspect helps to tie the many different functions of the room together, to prevent it from feeling dedicated to only one purpose.  The colour you choose may be one that features other rooms throughout the house, to make it feel more unified.

In this small living room, an oversized rug adds pattern and color to the smart parquet flooring. While the wood and metal furnishings, pared-back lighting, and movie-related artwork bring a masculine edge to space.

The colour green can have a powerful effect on our mood and is, therefore, an important colour when it comes to decorating. The soothing shade is even thought to lower blood pressure, making it an ideal choice, in particular, to set the scene for a calming home office.

Painting the walls in a deep olive green will help to awaken positivity by introducing the soothing ethos of being immersed in nature.  Add potted houseplants to the room to enhance the look. When choosing a statement wall color it is best to keep furniture choices in brilliant white for a striking contrast.
