Surprise Dad with a man cave this Father's Day

Do you want to knock Father’s Day out of the park this year? Surprise your dad, husband, friend, or brother with the ultimate Father’s Day gift—a relaxing man cave where he can get away from it all. Here are some of our favorite man cave design ideas this season:

Convert the room into a home theater.

A common misconception about home theatres is that they need to be large so they can fit tons of friends. The truth is, you can really turn any size room into a home theater that the father in your life will love. All he really needs is space for him and at least one other person to be able to enjoy a big screen, surround sound, and his favorite movie snacks.

Here are some of our favorite items to complete a home theater:

  • Custom theatre seats, which let you choose your dad’s favorite materials, colors, and high tech options
  • A reclining sectional if he would prefer to combine the feeling of a living room with a home theater
  • An area rug to prevent sound from echoing against hard floors

Incorporate a bar.

If the dad you’re designing for loves trying out new cocktail recipes or just enjoys the experience of hanging out at a sports bar, you can easily add a bar into your home! If you’re decorating a room with a kitchenette, you can remove the cabinet doors and add LED strip lights and mirrors so he can show off his favorite liquors and serving glasses. Without a kitchenette, you can still find a vintage bar cart and some floating shelves to create a corner bar in any room. And don’t be afraid to think outside the box! The man cave can even be located outdoors on the deck or patio with a backyard bar and big screen TV to watch the next game.

Design a grown-up game room.

What types of games does the father in your life like to play? Does he like to invite his friends over for a strategic game of Catan or Risk? Does he prefer tavern games like billiards or darts? Or does he lean more toward digital golf simulators and Wii games? Deck out his man cave with all the equipment he needs to host the next game night.

Showcase his collections.

Whether the dad you love collects sports paraphernalia, rare comic books, or classic artwork, you can set up an impressive museum-style room where he can show off his collections to everyone who comes over to visit. Think about the best lighting, shelving units, and cases you’ll need to really make his collections shine.

Send him on a staycation.

If you’re designing for a father who feels most at home when he’s traveling, incorporate lots of cultural elements into his man cave. Decorate the walls with maps or large photographs of his favorite global destinations. Stock the mini fridge and cabinets with snacks from around the world. Maybe even find some foreign films and travel documentaries on Blu-Ray!
