Sometimes our guys need a retreat, a home within a home, where they’re free to be 100% themselves. Every man cave is different, reflecting the tastes and personality of the man who uses it.

A Place for Games

Some are sophisticated and warm, like this one with rich wood tones and a professional-looking bar to sit at while friends play pool.

Here is the real-life man cave of NFL wide receiver Hines Ward. The timeless space gets a little spice from the wall colors and a little smooth from the Art Deco pool table.

Others, like this one, are more rustic and casual. This pub shed in Wilmington, North Carolina, is filled with memorabilia, music, and even beer on tap.

The Home Office

This fantastic space takes the words “steampunk” and “study” to a new level. The nailhead trim on the desk and the painting of the Victorian gentleman give it a vibe that’s both polite and edgy. For a similar look, try ‘Storm’s Coming‘ by PPG Paints.

While this may be too girly a space for most men, we dig the beers on the coffee table — a statement that clearly says, “Dad’s in the house.” P.S. Get this look using the chocolate brown ‘Sarsaparilla‘ by PPG Paints.

A Little Bit of Everything

Man caves and Father’s Day seem to go hand in hand. If you were going to help dad create his haven, what would it be? A sports haven? A backyard pub shed? Or a steampunk extravaganza? We’d love to know!
