Man Cave: Relaxation Theme Ideas

Many men use their garages for a Man Cave, an extra bedroom in the house, or the basement. Here are some relaxation theme ideas for your Man Cave to consider when starting from scratch or redesigning what is already in place.

Sports Memorabilia

Design the Man Cave with your favorite sports team memorabilia from top to bottom. Hang pennants, caps, T-shirts, jerseys, that scream the name of your favorite team. If you own collectibles like baseball cards or autographed baseballs,footballs, shadow boxes, or sporting programs collected over the years, display them for all to enjoy.


Design your Man Cave around your favorite hobbies such as ice hockey tables, poker tables, billiards, ping pong table, and indoor basketball net in mind. Maybe you like or own pinball machines, Pac-Man, WWii, and other games that you like to play on a regular basis.

Bar and Refrigerator

Think about constructing a bar in your Man Cave and stock it with all of your favorite libations and spirits such as wine, beer, etc. Add barstools of choice, bar art work, barware, snacks, and the like. Consider a wine cooler or refrigerator, sink and dishwasher.


A Man Cave is not a Man Cave without the requisite Plasma or Big Screen TV, leather sofa or comfortable couch, stereo system, DVD player, Blue-Ray player, favorite DVDs, CDs, computer, laptop and other electronic toys. They should all be part of this special place.

Music Memerobilia

Maybe you want to relish in your youth and decorate your Man Cave with an ode to your favorite Rock band. Pay homage to the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith or whatever band's songs you played air guitar to in your earlier years. Add posters, banners, or frame saved concert tickets and display.


Whatever your favorite color is, be sure to paint the walls that hue – this is the one room in the house where you can choose if you want everything to be black, green or navy blue and nobody can challenge you because it is your room after all.

The Man Cave is a place where all men --of all ages -- can decorate the way they wish, enjoy what they like and have fun at the same time knowing they did it their way.
