Man Cave Bar 

There’s something so classically macho about the idea of having your own personal pub at home. Every guy should be able to have a man cave where he can go when he wants to drink alone or invite his mates over to watch footy.

Whether you’re serving up beers, spirits and wines, you’ll need the bar tools to prepare your drinks—the cocktail shakers and strainers, jiggers and bar spoons will elevate your home bar in no time.

And then there’s the simple matter of presentation. You’ll need different glasses for specific beverages: rocks, highballs, margarita, shots, flute and martini are just a few of the generally used glasses in bars. And don’t forget that everyone needs a glass coaster!

Beer bottles and caps as a home pub decoration

Perhaps you’re a proud beer lover: there are innumerable ways to put the empty bottles and caps around your house. Let’s start with the watch made by beer bottles hanging on the wall of your man cave. This an excellent option to keep your favorite beers around your place while recycling them.

Besides, it’s possible to collect different beer caps and create creative bottle cap art. If you prefer something more personalized, a diversified range of wall art is available on the internet to boost your man cave.

Enjoy it as a man cave café

You know what’s better than a nice latte first thing in the morning? A nice latte that you made yourself. Investing in a coffee machine is an alternative inspiration for those who appreciate a delicious latte first thing in the morning. Thanks to the growing coffee culture in Australia, investing in a coffee machine would be a positive motivation to brew up a nice drink and boost your day.

Even if you’re not a specialist at making coffee, a diversified range of coffee machines are available that suit any skill level. Acquiring books that provide new coffee recipes or even explain the basic process of roasting coffee grains could be a decorative way to create a personal library. Also, take your barista skills to another level. As a final touch to your café, keep mugs set next to the machine creates an atmosphere where it would be impossible not making an excellent cup of coffee before going to work

Show your car person style in your cave

You might not think it, but you can actually use those old car parts lying around your garage for more than just your car! Some of them make awesome home décor.

For example, if you’re a fan of classic cars and have a man cave that you’re looking to deck out, why not grab some bumper covers and turn them into a unique couch? You could even mount some of your favorite cars on the wall—like that Cadillac or Mercedes you’ve had since the ’70s. They’d look great as shelves or bar height counters!

And don’t forget the tires! If you want to go really kitschy, you could turn one into a mirror frame in the bathroom. Or you could take a few more and stack them up (with some wood boards) to make a coffee table.

Die-hard sports fan spot

Expressing the devotion to the team you support is another typical feature in your basement room. It could be football, cricket or the rugby league. You don’t want to miss any moment of the game. Installing a widescreen TV and section sofa set is the first step to inviting the blokes to watch footy.

Placing a footy oval novelty rug or artificial grass between the couch and the TV would make you feel being in the middle of the field.

Framing the AFL guernsey collected for a while and hanging them on the wall would make your mates jealous for not having a fun place like yours. You also can be nostalgic and place pictures of memorable moments of your favourite players in action.

Also, display all the fan gear around your man cave if one of your mates doesn’t have any beanie or a supporter scarf to watch the game.

Don’t forget to place a decent-sized beer fridge and stock them before the game begins.

Never stop playing man cave!

Are you still craving more options to have a competitive and fun environment?

Arcade and pinball machines are old school features that make any place more fun. Doesn’t matter how old you are. These games in your cave will eventually attract anyone to play a match. It’s possible to find a games pack with more than 2000 games just in one machine. They also support the most famous game consoles in the world.

Create a closet to store your favourite board games, invite your family and friends, and beat them with no mercy.

Decorating the wall with your favourite game theme will reinforce to everyone the function of that area. It would be legendary to have a giant image of Princess Zelda blessing your game room.

Additionally, there are a lot of ideas for those who want to explore the backyard. Invite your friends to a cricket match. Cricket bats and a ball are the only sets you and your mates need to make it fun.

All soccer fans need are basic sets like a soccer ball and two soccer goals to start their own man cave championship.   

Man Cave, modern office

If your company is adapting to the global trends offering fully remote or hybrid work arrangements, a home office would be ideal. It’s possible to be productive in your home office, decorating it in your own style and using innovative ideas in your advance.

Keep in mind that neutral tones and natural light are welcoming concepts to encourage you to sit in front of your desk and do the work. From these strong sources, built-in wall storage to keep essential books creates a visual element to get inspired.

And don’t forget to add some art! While it might seem like more of a distraction than anything else, research has shown that artwork can actually be beneficial when it comes to productivity. Even if you can only fit in one small painting or photograph, it’ll go a long way toward inspiring you to do your best work every day!

Try adding plants. Peace lily, cactus, and rubber fig are the favorite plants for a workplace. Having some plants in your home office helps to increase your creativity and reduce stress. Besides, they will provide you with fresh air to complete all your tasks.

If classic style is your thing, antique pieces give the room a sophisticated, time-honoured look. A vintage wooden desk can add elegance to the room while inspiring you to get down to business. A floor globe and a world map will motivate you to travel the world.

Man Cave’s pool party

One of the best parts of summer is being able to spend most of your time in the pool. If you’re lucky enough to have a swimming pool, there are plenty of ways to make it even more fun—and if you’re not, these could be just the inspiration you need to convince your landlord/all your friends to finally get one.

If you’re looking for some easy ways to make your pool more fun, here are a few ideas:

– Add some plants. The best way to make your pool feel like it’s in a tropical jungle is by adding some plants around it. Bird of Paradise, Kangaroo Paw and Angel’s Trumpet are all beautiful options that will help give your pool area an exotic vibe.

– Build a bar. Having a refreshing drink in the pool is pretty much everyone’s dream. You can make this come true by adding a bar! If space and safety permit, build stools into the shallow end of the pool so that people can sit close to the water while they chat and sip on cocktails. Alternatively, build stools into dry land near where the bar will be so that people can hang out at the counter but still take a dip when they want.

Welcome to Cinema Room!

Have you ever wanted to recreate your own movie theater at home? If so, build a media room that will give you the cinema experience right in your home. Choose big, comfy couches and make sure your home theatre is set up correctly. You can even get a mini fridge to store snacks and drinks while you’re watching!

Another fun way to decorate your media room is with posters of famous actors and actresses. Not only are these movie posters fun to look at during the film, but they can also inspire everyone to appreciate classic movies and their production.

Secret Door to protect your worthy cave

So, you want to protect your cave. We get it: with the right kind of decor, a cave can be the most magical place in the world. You want to share that magic with everyone, but you also want it to stay private—you don’t want just anyone sneaking in and disrupting the vibe.

Luckily, we’ve got you covered. All you need is a secret door! A bookshelf door is a classic way to keep uninvited guests out without sacrificing all your precious book space. You can even create a wall-sized bookshelf with one open spot for your door!

Framed posters are another great way to hide your secret spot. What’s more, they add a personal touch to any room—even before the door’s open! Get some art posters from your favourite band and make visitors feel like they’re getting a sneak peek into what makes you tick before they ever even step foot inside your cave.
