It's Father's Day and summertime, a perfect combination telling you to finally clean out your garage or basement. Trash the old stuff, keep potentially useful furniture, and throw everything else in storage. Once you’ve cleaned the space and have a blank canvas, go one step further by creating the perfect man cave. Show your gratitude and celebrate all that the dad in your life does by making a comfortable space to match his style and hobbies.
For the videogame-obsessed dad, create an organized and comfortable space to relax and decompress with games. Secure and organize the tangle of wires, then tuck them out of sight. Mount the TV on the wall, and place a storage unit with compartments for each gaming system below.
If your dad likes a different type of game, create the ideal man cave for watching sports and displaying memorabilia. Recliners and a TV are a must, but add wall decals of his favorite teams and wall-mounted lights for showcasing his collections to make the space feel personalized.
Beer & Wine Connoisseur
A bar space in your garage or basement is a place for all the adults in the family to entertain, so make sure your dad knows it's his gift by adding personal touches, like memorabilia. Store wine and beer in specialty refrigerators, and add a beer tap with keg storage underneath to really wow him.
So maybe you forgot to get Dad a gift…no fear! This man cave concept is quick, easy, and uses stuff you already have. After cleaning out the garage or basement, fill the space with the workout machines and equipment you've had tucked away in your storage unit. Put a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Hang a few posters displaying proper fitness form or inspirational quotes and you've got your dad the home gym he always wanted.
Your dad will be able to unleash his wild side with this rustic man cave. Wood-paneled walls and camouflage accents create the outdoorsy feel while plenty of shelving and hooks allow for perfect hunting, fishing, and hiking gear storage.
