Finished basement man cave ideas

Finished basement man cave ideas DEFAULT

Not all of us are blessed with a basement in our homes but if you have one, can you tell us how your basement looks like? Sometimes, it is really hard to decorate a basement especially if you think you already have everything you want in your home. That is why, most of the time, the basement ends up to be a storage space. But that shouldn’t be the case. You can actually make good use of your basement.

These days, man caves are popular. This is what we call finished basements or basements that are transformed into a gaming area, entertainment area and other spaces both for fun and entertainment. I’m pretty sure you have heard of this term and so, we are going to show you man cave designs that will inspire you to work on your own basements.

Isn’t it nice to have a man cave? It is like you have all the freedom to enjoy and even make noise I guess when you are here. You have your own world to enjoy and no one’s going to ask you to stop because this space is intended for that purpose. You can even have a drink or just cuddle up with your partner for a nice movie. Oh, I’d love to have a man cave! Do you want one too?

Man Cave

How great would it be to have a place to retreat to where you wouldn’t have to fight for the remote, have to hear about the home improvements you ought to get to (sooner rather than later, of course!), and where you could hang out and watch the game with a cold beer with the guys?

I just had to include this example in our man cave design collection because it's literally designed as a cave with a bar and seating. Somebody interpreted the concept of man cave literally and created a cave. It's kinda cool... but wouldn't be my first pick.

Super cool custom garage man cave which is pretty much not a garage anymore but a dedicated space for watching TV, drinking, playing pool and banging out tunes on the upright piano. I guess you could squeeze in a car, but this room is more about hanging out and unwinding than storing vehicles.

About Man Caves

Man cave is a tongue-in-cheek way of referring to a finished basement, garage space converted into a lounge or game room… or any space used predominantly by the men of the house.

Basements and garages are often under-used spaces left for storage.

The growing popularity of the man cave idea is a great way to use what’s often a large space.

Yes, finishing a basement can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be. You can also plan to do it in stages, starting with a basic design and improving on aesthetics and features over time.

The finished basement (and man caves) have humble beginnings consisting of a TV room or family room and maybe a game element such as a pool table.

Now they’re elaborate, expensive and loaded with all kinds of features and designed in various themes.

However, as you’ve seen above and you’ve no doubt seen elsewhere, the finished basement has evolved to include many styles and functions and include a variety of man cave furniture.

From games rooms to themed-rooms to incredible media rooms, the basement in many homes is a space that adds fun and function as well as unique style to many homes.

Man Cave Locations

Any room or space can be converted into a man cave. However, the popular options are:

  • Basement (click here for basement man cave ideas)
  • Garage (click here for garage man cave ideas)
  • Shed or outbuilding.

Sizes

Because they’re mostly located in basements, man caves are fairly large and spacious. However, our gallery above features many small man cave ideas as well. Access the different sizes below.

  • Small man caves
  • Medium-sized man caves
  • Large man caves

Design, Feature & Theme Ideas

The starting point for planning the best “man cave” finished basement (or garage conversion) is to come up with a design theme.

For many people, home decor isn’t that important except for rec rooms, finished basements, bars and other rooms that will serve as a “man cave” style room (or suite).

What’s the look you want? What features do you want?

Have fun with planning your man cave. Themed rooms, especially for kids and basements is a growing trend. To help you get the ball rolling, consider the following man cave theme ideas.

Theme Ideas

  • Mountain
  • Sports
  • Classic Study
  • Golf
  • Game Room
  • Art
  • City
  • Contemporary
  • Safari
  • Surfing
  • Western
  • Ski Lodge
  • Hot Rod
  • Fishing
  • Train culture
  • Castle
  • Boat/Yacht
  • Old Ship’s Captain’s Quarters
  • Rock n’ Roll
  • Hollywood
  • Florida
  • Log Cabin
  • Roman/Greek
  • Race Car
  • Other:  Any interest you have or period in history you like can become a great theme.

Layouts and Features

You can approach this 2 ways:

1. If working with an existing layout, pick and choose the main features you’d like to have and assign them to your existing spaces.

2. If you’re renovating or design a custom layout, choose the features you’d like to have and design a layout around them.

My preferred layout generally:  Open concept with designated areas (TV room, bar, games, etc.) – but all sections are in view of one another.

The following is an extensive list of man cave feature ideas:

TV Viewing Area(s)

Most finished basements and man caves include a TV viewing area. You can opt for the full home theater room or a more traditional television viewing section. Or if you have a limitless budget, do both.

Designing your TV viewing area requires you to choose:

TV:  Size, type and location(s)

You may opt for multiple televisions throughout the space (not a bad idea if your budget permits).

Size of TV:

For the main TV, don’t go with anything smaller than 55″. Additional televisions can be 32″ or bigger.

Type of TV:

I like large flat screens, but you may prefer a projector. Both are good options for any man cave.

Location:

Mounted up on the wall is best. Plan the placement so that you and your guests enjoy optimal viewing of the TV. You don’t want the television set to the side or in a location that’s not ideal for watching (or that requires moving furniture in order to view it properly).

Stereo/sound:  You definitely want a great sound system – likely plugged into your TV system for the ultimate multimedia experience. Use wireless technology for placing speakers throughout the space.

Seating Options

Man cave furniture is an important aspect of design and of course comfort. Sectional sofas, plush recliners, and/or theater seating? If you’ll include a video game feature, think about seating for gaming.

Sectional sofa:  Great for smaller rooms because theater seating takes up a lot of space. Sofas are also a better option to watch movies with family.

If you have the space, get a 5 piece sectional sofa so that you can set it up in multiple configurations (some even transform into a bed). Learn more about sectionals (35 types) here.

Plush recliners:  Even if you opt for a sectional sofa, if you have the space and budget, buy one or two plush chairs because sometimes you just want to kick back in a chair seemingly made for you.

Alternatively, you could do one row of theater seating with recliners designed for theater seating.

Stadium seating:  The ultimate man cave showpiece. It looks cool. Is a fun way to watch movies… but not the most practical. It’s also not all that great for chatting with other people.

Ottomans: Don’t forget ottomans for your man cave to put your feet up. I can’t remember the last time I relaxed without an ottoman.

Coffee table:  I use the coffee table term for lack of better alternatives. You need places to set down your drinks in a convenient manner.

Flooring:  Carpet or rugs help with sound quality. Even if you want hardwood floor (which is great) consider a large rug in the TV area to improve sound quality.

Lighting:  You definitely want a dimming feature in the TV area.

Bar Area (Beverage Area)

You can be creative here. Even if the traditional mini-bar isn’t for you, consider a coffee bar or wine cellar/tasting room.

Essentially you want to create a “beverage area” in a way that is comfortable for people to enjoy whatever beverages you serve.

Mini-bar designs vary tremendously. You could go with wood, steel, concrete. It can be tucked away in a corner or be large and center of the space. Whatever you do, offering bar stool seating is a must-have touch.

Whatever you do, offering bar stool seating is a must-have touch.

Must-have bar features:  

  • keg, refrigerator, plenty of glasses and a decent liquor selection.
  • bar stools… preferably within view of the TV.
  • Mini bar TV – why not mount a flat screen TV in the bar for your “guest”

Video games:  Video games aren’t just for kids. The games these days are incredible and there are games for everyone. If you’re going through the effort of creating the ultimate man cave, be sure to budget a few hundred bucks for a video game set up.

Games Area

  • The billiard table is the standard game for most man caves, but why stop at a pool table when there are so many game options. Consider:
  • Arcade video games
  • Foosball
  • Ping Pong
  • Air Hockey
  • Bowling Alley
  • Darts

Sports (to play)

If you have plenty of space, why not incorporate some sports in the basement space. You could play:

  • Floor hockey
  • Basketball (make a mini-basketball court)
  • Rock climbing wall
  • Boxing ring
  • Gym

Relaxation Space

I confess I’m a relaxation junkie. Relaxation features you could include are:

  • Sauna
  • Hot tub
  • Steam room
  • Massage table (invite your masseuse over for your weekly massage and watch the game at the same time).
  • Music listening area
  • Meditation space
  • Swimming pool

Reading Room/Library/Study

If books are your thing, create a library space with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and comfortable reading chairs.

If you subscribe to magazines, get a magazine rack to display your magazines. This is great for guests – everyone likes flipping through popular magazines.

The reading area could be in an alcove or be larger. If you enjoy reading the paper, magazines or books – a dedicated reading area is ideal.

Computer Area

Computers are a big part of our work and leisure life. I love surfing the web and playing around with software. Today’s best man caves should include a space for a computer. It need not be a full-out

It need not be a full-out office but can be. Of course, if you prefer using an iPad or laptop, you can easily do so on your comfortable man cave furniture.

Models, Collectibles and Hobbies

For the hobbyist, collector or model builder, a man cave is a great place to set up shop.

Collections:  Create elaborate shelving or display cases to show off your collections.

Hobbies:  Create workspaces to engage in your hobbies.

Models:  If you like model trains, cars or you’re creating a miniature city or landscape, why not incorporate it as part of your man cave.

Additional Rooms

Additional rooms are often overlooked, but they should be considered. The following are some additional rooms you could easily add to your finished basement for enhancing your man cave:

Bathroom:  a must-have room for obvious reasons (especially if there’s a lot of drinking going on).

TIP:  spring for a urinal or two. To this day I can’t figure out why home bathrooms don’t come with urinals.

Home bathroom with a urinal:

Man Cave Flooring

Carpeting is commonly used in basements because it’s warmer and good for reducing sound echo.

Consider hardwood and either include heated flooring and/or rugs. This looks better than carpeting and it’s cleaner.

Laminate:  a less expensive alternative to hard wood. Again, rugs are a must and/or heated flooring.

Concrete:  We have concrete flooring in our lower room. It’s heated, which is nice. It’s also great because we don’t have to worry about protecting it. However, it’s very hard and when it’s not heated, it’s cold.

Other design elements (random stuff):

Built-Ins:  Built-in shelving and display spaces is perfect for any basement.

Trophies:  Show off your accomplishments.

Display cases:  If you’re a collector, won awards or trophies, display cases are a nice way to dress up the space. A man cave is a better place for trophies than a living room.

Wall Décor

  • Wood paneling on the walls:  Just as built-in shelving can dress up a room, so too can wood paneling on the walls. In fact, how you decorate your walls will contribute significantly to fulfilling the theme of your man cave.
  • Brick:  I love brick; it’s perfect for any room including basements.
  • Rock wall:  Not for climbing, but instead for aesthetics.

Art & Prints:  If you’re an art collector or have print collection, use them to decorate your basement. Invest in quality lighting that shows off the art.

Sports memorabilia:  Hang signed jerseys display sporting equipment to create a real sports environment.

Fireplace:  Fireplaces enhance any room. If possible, include a gas fireplace in the space.

Wall-mounted bottle opener:  In fact, place a few around the room for convenient access.

Garbage & recycling requirements:  You’ll want a disposal system set up on your man cave – whether it’s for conveniently removing garbage from the space or to dispose of without stinking up the place.

Aquarium:  Are you into fish? Get a huge aquarium or a few of them to add depth, color and a splash of style to your basement. Just don’t forget to care for the fish!

41 Incredible Man Cave Ideas That Will Make You Jealous

Man Cave Ideas At Home

When you like to get away from the stresses of contemporary life for a while, nothing beats a relaxing vacation to your man cave. These treasured areas allow us to slow down in a fast-paced environment and recharge our batteries for men. For many men with families, the man cave may be the only place in the house they can genuinely call their own. It is a location that is specifically designed for masculine energy and interests.

Our man caves are also personal sanctuaries where we may honor the various memories we’ve amassed throughout the years. It’s where we keep the things that are most important to us, such as our trophies, photographs, and even the baseball card collection we’ve had since we were kids. A man cave is similar to a closet. It is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your distinct style and individuality.

Man caves are, of course, great places to entertain. Home theaters, sports rooms with pool tables, and even indoor basketball courts are just a few of the ways that men use their man caves to unwind with friends after a long day at work.

Your man cave may become your ultimate at-home hideaway, whether it’s utilized to decompress after a long day at work, watch the big game, hang out with a group of friends, or get in a workout. Check out these ideas for establishing a man cave if you’re looking for ways to create your hangout at home!

Where To Put Man Cave Ideas

This is entirely up to you! Your ultimate man cave might be built in a variety of locations, depending on what you want to build and the available space in your home. These are only a few examples.

Attic Or Flex Room

Don’t know what to do with an attic or bonus room? Convert it into a man cave! Not only does this make use of previously unused space, but it can also provide your man cave extra privacy!

Basement

Basements offer privacy for your man cave! With a basement, you can have an entirely different décor and atmosphere from the rest of the house, allowing you to personalize it.

Garage

Because there is no carpet or furniture to worry about in this area of the house, a garage man cave can be a fantastic place for a home gym, workshop, or art studio where you can get a bit dirty!

Backyard Or Patio

The backyard is a wonderful place to barbeque, sit by the pool, play yard games, or simply enjoy the weather. If you enjoy spending time outside, a patio or deck could be the ideal location for your man cave!

Outbuilding Or Shed

Your man cave does not even have to be connected to the rest of the house! A detached building in the backyard can be converted into a man shed, ideal for loud activities like cheering at a game, using power tools, or playing instruments.

Extra Bedroom

Do you have an additional bedroom that you aren’t using? Underutilized spare bedrooms or other underutilized areas in the home are blank canvases begging to be transformed into a man cave!

As far as possible. That's when you scream. But you will no longer scream for help, but from lust that does not know the boundaries, eating away at you from the inside with an. Incredible itch. At that moment you will forget about everything in the world: about shame, about mom, about your baby - and you.

The ULTIMATE Sports Fan Cave! - (FINISHED BASEMENT FOR THE ULTIMATE SPORTS FAN!)

In the mouth is someone else's male member, in the ass is wielding someone's tongue, someone's hands caress his body, chest, thighs. He tried to look at all this from the outside, to imagine. Big dick having it in the face. A lot of saliva has already developed in the mouth. He gradually began to get used to the discomfort, and he began to like it.

Now discussing:

OF COURSE, but why me first, and not Marina, or Sveta. -I always wanted. To caress an adult, mature woman, that's why you are the first…. -My girl. I am so pleased to hear.
