They say that a true man is never afraid to wear pink. Or in your home’s case, unafraid of colour and prints. Balance the overly contemporary and neutral tones in your home with prints of favourite sports teams, a bright surfboard or even an accent chair or wall.

Where else would you put all your tools and sports equipment? Storage is one of the most important solutions to include in a man cave. Have spacious kitchen cabinets and enough chests and drawers to achieve an uncluttered area.

There’s nothing like the brotherhood coming together for game day or poker night. Invest in a relaxing couch, an AV unit to hide away cables and DVDs and your dream TV. To make your living area less of a tech center, get a large, sturdy center table that can handle a few beers and pizza, a bright rug and throw pillows that supplement your couch. A portable bar cart or a bar area wouldn’t hurt either. Your friends will surely come knocking.

A man cave should always represent the person living in it. Have you always wanted a pool table? Or a chance to display your miniature car collection? Whether your interest lies in cars, sports or comic books, take your personality into your home.
