It seems as though men have been retreating to their caves since the dawn of time. From 17th-century aristocratic gentlemen’s clubs to today’s converted basements, the man cave has evolved into a place anyone can enjoy.
If you've got the right staples in place — a media center to enjoy sports and movies and a bar, wet or dry — the decor doesn’t have to be all kitschy sports paraphernalia and overstuffed recliners. Let the Dallas Design District help you make your man cave the envy of everyone.
We’ve come a long way since clapping light switches made their debut. Thanks to the magic of modern technology, your smartphone is all you need to control almost anything in your home. Temperature, TV and stereo controls, lighting and even home security settings are literally a tap away. Think of your phone as the ultimate universal remote.
When you’re ready to control your smart home from your man cave, give the team at Crown Audio Video a call.
If you haven’t yet, it’s time to upgrade from the pleather sofa and ratty recliner. But don’t worry — you don’t have to sacrifice manliness for style.
Barstools for the bar and comfortable seating to watch the game or for movie night are a must for any man cave. And at the DDD’s Circa20c, you’ll find vintage mid-century modern furniture for a sophisticated, "Mad Men"-style man cave.
The last thing you want to worry about in your man cave is ruining delicate, hard-to-maintain items, and your floor is no exception. You want to make sure you have something that’s easy to clean and can take a beating (and spills). Look for special tiles that mimic the appearance of hardwood, or try concrete or metal floors.
Adding a rug can help absorb sounds and echoes — something you want to consider to ensure the highest sound quality from your state-of-the-art media center. Luckily, durable outdoor rugs are a great option for indoor spaces, too. For ideas, check out the outdoor rug collection at JANUS et Cie.
Nobody says you have to trade your sports memorabilia for modern artwork. However, there is a way to integrate more grown-up decor while still keeping your manly aesthetic. If you’re a superhero fan (and who isn’t these days?), you can find comic book collectibles anyone would be proud to show off at Heritage Auctions. Or grab a one-of-a-kind piece at Uncommon Market.
There are so many options available to those looking to revamp their man cave. Bring your cave into the 21st century with the help of the shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District.
