When couples get a home together, most men surrender the decorating duties to their wives or significant others. This acquiescence was once unconditional, but not any longer. Some guys now demand a private space that they can decorate any way they like. Whether it is located in the basement, the garage, or in a spare bedroom, a man cave is a masculine sanctuary where guys can do as they please. Most women do not begrudge their men a single room, since they have the rest of the home to work with.

How to decorate them

A man cave is a place where guys can relax without having to worry about their wives or girlfriends intruding. They should be entirely self-contained, so guests won’t have to go running to the kitchen for a sandwich or a cold beer. Yes, every proper man cave must have its own refrigerator. Some of the more elaborate rooms have full wet bars where guys can gather to enjoy a drink.

Of course, no man cave would be complete without a killer entertainment center. Large screen wall-mounted televisions are the only way to watch the big game, fight, or the latest action flick. The experience can be enhanced if you hook your television up to a home theater system, which will add a new dimension to home entertainment with surround sound features.

Seating is another important consideration. All man caves require comfortable seating options, whether recliners, sofas, or even beanbag chairs. After all, the room is designed for relaxation and there’s nothing more comfortable than a chair that conforms to your fundament?

In addition to the television, most man caves have other forms of entertainment that guys can enjoy. Some rooms have pool tables, while others have poker tables, jukeboxes, or arcade games. It all depends what the owner and his friends enjoy. One decorating theme that will never go out of style for the man cave is a sports theme.

Sports Posters

For obviously reasons, married men don’t get to hang sports posters in their bedrooms. Only their teenage sons and daughters get to do that. Men must decorate shared spaces with pictures and paintings and other kinds of wall art. But those rules don’t apply in the man cave. Guys are free to decorate them any way they please, and that almost always means putting up sports posters of their favorite athletes and teams.

What do they like?

It all depends which sports they follow or played. Some former athletes like to put their trophy cases in their man caves. Others hang signed and framed jerseys and other sports memorabilia. Sports posters for the modern man cave can save owners a lot of money, since they are not nearly as pricey as autographed jerseys or pictures. Most posters can be purchased for a nominal fee from sellers on the internet. It is even possible to have these posters matted and framed.
